Re: Extracting Power at Speed: 1.6 CDTi Ecoflex 110

A remap would up the power considerably , prob up 25/30 bhp.a petrol turbo will Rev a lot higher 6k plus , diesels as you've experienced Rev a lot lower . So if you can afford £3-400 my advice would be the remap .a pedalbox will make the throttle response a lot better but not up the power .
