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.
