    Looking to tune

    Hey guys. So Ive been working hard and have some spare pennies. I was thinking about tuning my vector tid 150bhp 2006. Ive got about 250 quid to spend. I'm looking for more power and economy. What would you recommend?

    Power or economy, any one that tells you that you can have both is full of sh!t. Up your budget, go for a remap and DPF removal if you have one fitted. Don't be tempted by a tuning box/chip

    Re: Looking to tune

    Not sure if you're still looking, but I recently did a Maptun stage 1 on my '01 93 and have had not only a huge increase in power and torque but also a noticeable improvement in fuel economy too. So you certainly can have both power and economy. Not sure how much a Maptuner would be for your spec of car, but it will pay for itself in no time at all (particularly with a diesel I expect) and improve your driving enjoyment. Deal with the ECU before spending on hardware that won't really work without it. But be warned - it's a very slippery slope once you get started!
