Hey I don't really know that much about the deisel engine. one thing you can do, though its pricey is upgrade your turbo.

the only way to get more power is to buy a muscle car joking check out and and they have tons of power hop ups

definitly dont go to any of the sites he has mentioned its a german vehicle check out like dinan or brabus or european tuner forums and magazines try to stay away from stuff like jcwhitny they only catter to the muste heads

try this will help you.....


diffently dont buy MUSCLE car. buy boost control and u cant change the amount of boost ur runnin wit the turbo. if u dont wanna upgrade it. just get a denser front mount and a better flowin turbo manifold

Add a bigger intake, a turbo, some nitrous lol. just a few ideas but the more air an engine pulls in the faster the car will go. It's just like breathing for a human

Buy a tuner chip. They run about $300 for the pricey ones, but it's free power without modding your engine.

Yeah... get a tuner chip.. mabye talk to some tuner shops. I remember reading somewhere that you could do that, and they found a good amount of power by tweek'n the computer. A better exaust system would help too.

get the engine control module remapped power increase will be around 40+ bhp, how many horse is it standard? Also consider a bigger air intake pipe, aftermarket airfilter, gearbox dog bone mount, upgrade the bushes in the lower arms to powerflex, so you are able to get more power down on the front wheels rather than them just spinning, and keep the traction control turned OFF. Hope this helps


I am pretty sure ( I might be wrong ) you can remap it to 210 bhp , google it to be safe
