Help needed, i am now unbelievably confused, i have a 1997 transporter 1000 td that has been converted to a camper, it has the 1.9td engine (1896cc).
The 5th gear appears too short to me (a common problem i believe) and i was also looking to have it remapped but it appears this isnt possible on 1997 vehicles and its chip tuning instead.

Firstly is it worth having the 5th gear mod doing and is it worth getting it Chip tuned?

Secondly, i am in Oxfordshire so does anyone know anyone who can do it and how much?

Hi,
You can't have it chipped you dont have a ecu!
Your going to have to do it bit at a time,
Decat, boost gauge and up turbo boost, tune fuel pump ( lots of info on here) its not one thing with a 1.9TD ABL it's lots of little ones.
Saying that you could swap engines (TDI) or fit a AAZ fuel pump and intercooler.
5th gear worth doing but 2 different ratio gears you'll have to do a bit of reading (I fitted lower ratio wish I'd fitted higher ratio)
Cheers let us know how you get on
