The modern diesel engine has come a long way since the old smelly noisy almost agricultural units of years gone by. With the advent of high compression engines, turbo chargers and direct fuel injection at phenomenal pressures we have a range of diesel engines that out perform thier petrol counterparts and return better fuel economy.

The big plus is that with a simple remap you are able to dramatically increase the performance and also generally get better fuel economy.

We look at all aspects of diesel engine tuning and suggest that you join our forum for more information about the world of high performance diesels.

Stage 1,2,3 remaps and mods

We wish people would stop using stage to describe a tuning option or plan but while they do we’ll define here what we mean and expect when we talk about the term.

We get asked so much about this that we wanted to spell out what we mean and most car modders mean when talking about stage 1, 2 or 3 remaps and mods. We look at the various stages of remap available and the mods that would work best on stage 1, 2 and 3 upgrades. Each level of remap carries risks and drawbacks so we will outline them here.

Diesel Tuning for maximum power and torque

From a diesel perspective, anything that isn’t turbocharged is a waste of time from a tuning point of view. Similarly, anything that isn’t using electronically managed direct injection is a pointless tuning proposal so we are somewhat limited to modern Turbo Diesels.

Clutch tuning: performance clutch modifications and triple plate clutches setup

The clutch takes the engine power, and puts this down through the drive shaft, to the driven wheels on the road but allows you to disengage the engine whilst performing a gear change.

Contact like this requires a lot of grip and a fast response. The more power you have the harder it is for the clutch to operate.
