Why Butane? Nitrous Oxide works better on diesels than it does on petrols.

Scoop, they where less than 100bhp, the 110bhp's didnt come out till 2002.

If you want something nippy, sell it and buy something else, modern Rover Diesels are built for economy not performance frown

The FMIC will make little difference other than causing extra lag as the turbo will be running low psi and diesel engines dont rev as high as petrol cars and the charge temps dont get so high.

You could up the boost by a few psi (bleed valve), and an induction kit is a good TD mod as the tiny turbos can be quite hampered by a restrictive air box.

yer, this lad that was at MNR on sunday took me out in his and his was rapid compared to mine so i know wot it is i need to do.
by the time that im in 1st gear at 3k rev's, He's already in 3rd lol

Standard time for this car is 9.9 0-60 and he's got his down to 6.2 so i know there can be something done to improve the performance smile

6.2 eek

To get that time hes either found 100bhp and doubled the cars power, or he is telling porkies wink

Induction kit and up the boost, may see 15bhp increase, but an FMIC on a diesel is a high power mod as the charge temps never get that high.
