Megane 1.5 DCI 120
Hi guys,

I own a 2005 Megane 1.5 dci and I am looking into ways of getting more power. I've had the engine remapped to 120 bhp by KTEC racing but I'd still like to get more. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

thanks
Gavin

Hi Gavin and welcome to TorqueCars. HDi is our resident diesel head - so I'm sure he'll pass on his wisdom when he reads this thread.

A remap is the main and best way of tuning a diesel. A panel air filter will help the engine to breathe better but overall there is not a lot else you can do to increase power.

only other way of getting big power would be a turbo conversion and larger injector setup. but you could be in major £££ by then. how much power are you after ?

Thanks for your tips, I was hoping to get around 140 bhp if its actually possible. Anyone know of any specialists who would actually do the work i would need? Does anyone know if the turbos from the larger Renault diesel engines would work on mine (ie. 1.9 and 2.0)?

Alright mate i have a 1.9dci. and i recently had the joy of having to get a replacement turbo http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/turbo-connect?ssPageName=ADME:X:CEM:GB:1181 i used that site it was basicly a new turbo in a old case fully under warrenty cost me bout £270 which when brand new is about £500.

Note tho with diesal mate it aint about BHP its the torque that shows more. yes the eqiverlant petrol may do better then yours off the line, but if his car was full of stuff it would be sluggish where as yours been a diesal would grunt n pull you all way buddy.
