Hi all,

I like the sound of 150bhp - but don't think I can justify the cost of .216 injectors :(

How far can you go with the Stanadynes on my 88? I have an intercooler fitted and just wanted to ask you folks for any pearls of wisdom, i.e. can you get a worthwhile power gain just by having a good remap? Will economy be compromised?

Any thoughts would be appreciated

I'm in the same boat as you, I can't justify the £££ to get 150bhp.
I have been in touch with a company about a remap and the results they tell me expect is around 117bhp and torque up from 195NM to 240NM. As for economy a 10-15% improvement, thats if you don't change your driving style.....................................as if I wouldI:I:I:I:

Pretty sure Pendle performance are advertising the same power gains for 275 quid but am not sure this includes a rolling road sesh. Rake if you could find out I would be interested T: need to get an i/c sorted first though.

OK I have spoken to my trade contact and he said that the nozzles of the stanadyne can be modded to give more power and work nicely although he could not give me a BHP figure.

He did however say that he would be willing to let you have them for free if you were to try them and give us the bhp figure post remap / instalation.

Not alot to lose there....sounds like a good way forward .

Are you game ?

Rake, I would be interested in that offer if Mr Fizik deceides not take you up;) I'm not fitting an i/c though, I intend booking it in for the remap in the next week or two. Ta!

Hi Rake I wont be able to fit an i/c for a while as funds are tight, probably wouldnt be able to afford a remap until sept but I would definitely be game for that, and would happily post results up. I am guessing a rolling road bhp read out would cost around 25 quid? T:

I live fairly near pendle performance and chipwizards so once I got a remap sorted I would again post the results up, but would be better getting this done once I have fitted an i/c. Do you think the van would be ok for daily use until september time with new injectors fitting? If its not going to be feasible without immediate remap then I am more than happy to let Merry Monk try them, its just I have just left uni and cant start full time work til september so I dont have a spare 350-400 quid for a remap just yet. But once I have my paycheque I will be decatting, doing the egr and putting an i/c, and then remapping for sure, am sick of getting done by them new vitos! LOL:

Cheers

Hi Isaac,

I'd not run them for too long without remap for fear of coking and issues related.

If you dont mind letting monk lead the way I'm sure we can come to some arrangement once the process is proven ;) How does that sound ?

If thats ok with you Isaac then Monk - Send me your address and I'll get you some nozzles.

Regards.

Ron.

Issac, sorry sorry for treading on your toes mate, not what I intended;)
I would be happy with 117bhp, but if it's goes to more than that all the better:D

Ron, I will PM you my address soon, but would you mind if I keep my old nozzles until the remap is done just incase it goes Pete Tong?
Cheers Dave:)H:H:H:

Issac, thanks for that :)
I don't mind testing the nozzles, it could be a good and cheapish mod for us 88bhp owners. I don't think a standard i/c will offer much anyway, but lets see what results I get.
I will post what the results before and after;)
Cheers Dave.
