Well the 2.2 170 maps to 215. Makes you wonder how much of that 136 --> 170 is hardware and how much is software.
The 170 has an 1800 bar fuel system and piezo injectors capable of up to 9 separate injections / cycle, compared the 136's 1350 bar & 3 injections / cycle. Not sure how the twin turbo setup compares with the AP1549 VNT on mine, but it's not likely to be a retrograde step. The newer engine seems to be aimed more at better low speed response than out & out power.

On the run to the Gaydon meet, Disco and I did a little 'research' - the C5 won on low end response, but I suspect the Dogmobile actually had a few more beans ultimately. TBH it was probably due to the very wide power band you get with a remapped DW12. Lots of more modern stuff is as quick or quicker, until it runs out of puff and has to change gear.

I have mine.. And will have it for the rest of it's life.
Mine has only done 143.000 km's. The previous owner drove the car untill the drivebelt snapped, so I got it for free.. Rebuilt the engine, changed all the broken bushes, brakes, clutch etc. etc.
spent way too much money on it all in all :P But, I love my car(s). Sad thing though is that some ass backed his truck right onto my hood, crushing my headlights, grille, hood and slam-panel...

Currently on the lookout for those parts in matching color so I don't have to respray.. for some reason MOGE/M4GE (China blue) phase1's are HARD to come by here in Norway.. most are silver, red, green or that MOMP-blue (rhodes?) color..

Future plans were to upgrade the suspension.. Been looking at yellow koni's with H&R springs.. or a K2 Sport coilover-kit I also can get for a decent price.

They're tuning it for vans aren't they?

That power band on the remapped 136 is astonishing.

:arrowu: :arrowu: Ignore that for some stupid reason i hit submit before saying anything and i can't edit it? :?

Regarding "tuning it for vans" i saw a camper van a few weeks back with an hdi136 lump in it, it looked a hefty big thing to drive maybe their tuning it for sporty old grampa's in their campers?

Think it was in a Bailey.

Look in the Volvo corner for why I just went BACK into a 406!
I've done a lot of miles in 406s and other stuff between.

Would I be a tard to reply 2 years after the last reply, to say 'yes'?

Not to mention that I could use some good recommendations for good used parts (rack, door rubbers and ac control unit).
I'm from Trinidad btw... :cheesy:
