Default V50 2.0d tuning

Hi all,

I know it's not a performance car but I would like to get more out of it.

I've got a V50 2.0d 136bhp version. I know a remap is the best way to gain poerformance but I would like more than that, maybe hitting the 200bhp mark if possible.

Any info on the best route to take would be greatly appreciated. Here's a quick shot of the car in question:

difficult this one, sure a diesel expert will pop along but as you said remap. probably look at induction and getting some air in there.

Probably better keeping an eye out for a D5 really.

200BHP is a push on these but can get D5ish figures -
Approx 170Bhp/400Nm

Can't quite recall if that involves deleting the DPF but DPF delete and EGR delete (with blanking plate) are quite commonly done on these cars.

The 2.0d feels fairly rapid in standard tune thanks to torquey delivery, so 'even' aiming for the 170bhp (and associated torque increase) should reap benefits.

Take a look at Shark Performance:

Out of interest, what springs and dampers are you running (stance looks good)?

I've put JOM coilovers on the car which aren't too bad. I've also spaced the tears out by 25mm (removed arch liners and rolled arches) and the fronts 5mm. Although I've got some 15mm spacers on the way.

I have the mk2 focus rs air filter, its s direct fit in to the box.

Egr blank and unplugged, very easy to do.

Focus st mk2 intercooler is a direct fit

I'm de-Catted too

I run all that on a pap tuning box and it's fairly rapid tbf, tie all them in and get a re-map. You will be fairly close

I'm over in aldershot all this month if you want a look at mine

I have a 2.0d remapped to 170 in my C30.

I'm just wondering how it affects MPG? I have read on some places that it can actually increase it?

My trip computer is giving me an official MPG reading of 46mpg which seems optimistic (haven't worked it out myself yet as I only just got the car) but would this be skewed by the remap?

The 2.0D in good fettle can muster over 50mpg on the motorway and north of 55mpg on 50-60 mph country runs. That's not bad in this day but it was quite something in 2004, it was a bit of a VAG basher.

Tampering with a required emissions control system is an illegal act in the UK and it invalidates the insurance as it is classed as an undeclared engine modification. If the car is insured for race track only use, then no EGR, CAT or DPF is required.

Removing or gutting the CAT or DPF is an MOT failure point.
