Re: power loss

I feel for you I really do, I'd stick with it, the camshaft position sensor wiring is quite fragile & prone to failure. If you replace the sensor / sensors make sure you use genuine ones, don't have to be from the steelers though. If you think yours is unreliable then don't buy a 307 :roll: & the VW...

Re: D9 wanted

Worry not :cheesy:

The biggest difference is the manual bost control vs electric and lack of intercooler
All the 110 stuff fit's & use a manual boost controller

160bhp easily achieved :evil:

Re: Which one to buy

Both are ok to use, I believe that our own Doggy prefers the Galetto 1260 or it's what he has :wink:
Pro Steve at HDi-tuning.com favours the mpps ?

You could try sending Doggy a pm, always a very helpful & approachable chap :)
