MG ZR TD Express.

Hey ya everyone.

I was wondering what I could do to improve the performance of the 2.0 TD express. I would assume the ZR van would be similar engine wise to the diesel car.

I have always modded petrol cars having previously owned the 1.8 120BHP.

I havent a clue how to mod the diesel and what gains to expect. I had heard that remapping them is a good idea.

Any thoughts guys?

Cheers Chris.

there are a few routes you can go..

the most common involves breathing mods 1st(decat - induction kit) - and a pierburgh MAF.

then you could get a manual boost controller and whack it up to 19psi - safe point.Or buy a tu1 tuning box - heard these have had great results too.

after that you are looking at bigger turbo, injectors etc... expensive route.

keep with the l series diesel - think of the mpg

Get some SDI Injectors, a remap and a few other choice mods (exhaust, filter, decat) should see you to 150bhp/250ftlb.

Cheers lads.

Any idea where I can get these SDi injectors from? Try my luck at a scrappy? Would much prefer to buy new.
