what make & model do people think is the Most tuneable Diesel Car- Bang for Buck ...

Just wondering as to peoples thoughts on which make & model of car they believe to be the most tuneable ...

I.E.. Which can achieve the biggest power hike with a reasonable outlay of cash ... not costing a fortune Etc ....

I suppose the cost of the Car initially has to be considered also .... :sus:

Cheers

They aren't that much and finding a manual could be hard as most would be autos but im sure there would be a good few about
but definitely got to be one of the best diesel tuning options

If the cost of the car is part of the equation then an Ibiza 1.9PD 150, cheap to buy and can very easily be tuned to double that

They go well when they are on the move, but they are big heavy cars and the fuel economy isnt all it could be

Yes, They are a stonking motor when tuned / mapped ... It's just the intial outlay of cash for the car & finding a Manual version :D

thought all 335'd petrol or derv were semi auto's.. so finding a manual in the UK will be near impossible lol

Escort RS Turbo £2000 buys you a battle ready car that can see 300 BHP+ given the right mods or a £3500 Sapphire Cosworth 300-400BHP can be had for little money these days. Plus there is more bits available to tune the engines than there is lego bricks in the world :lol: Power outputs on the old Yb engine can top 800BHP
But they arent diesel so not what OP is looking for (Y)

VAG 2.0T engines are pretty tuneable, as found in Skoda Octavia vRS, Golf GTi mk5/6 Golf/Scirocco R, Audi S3 and so on...
