Performance tuning options for 164 2.5 TD?

Post by Artiz1 » Sat Apr 19, 2014 8:49 pm

Everybody can tune the Busso V6, as there are loads off the shelf performance parts for them.
But what about the diesels?
Has anyone done anything to a diesel?
I know there is a remap possible for the latter VM32, but perhaps there's anything else available?
Or perhaps anyone has done something custom for their diesels?
I currently have mine dissasembled due to a leaking head gasket, so I thought while I'm in there perhaps do something interesting to improve it as well.
Comments and thoughts are welcome :)

There used to be special powerboxes, but I don't think they are available anymore. This wasn't really "tuning" but adding more fuel by "fooling" the motronic.

I wouldn't do it, but here it is:

I saw these on Ebay :) Rubbish :)
I was talking about a propper remap, which is available for these engines. That's the easiest thing to do.
But perhaps there is something that can be done to the engine itself, not the ECU?
I just don't want to believe that out of all 164 TD in the world, not a single one hadn't been upgraded performance wise...
