It got really hard to start before I fitted them :roll:

Re: intermittent non starting - again!

HDi's don't really need the glow plugs to start, lot's out there have relay issues but run absolutely fine.

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 :)
