    2.8jtd engines

    Hi there, I personally would go for "chipping" or better still a tuning box as they certainly do give more power and better economy if driven carefully.
    I found that the difference meant much less gear changes on hills,
    from personal experience I found that the tuning box better as you could set it to your own preference, also it can be sold on after you have finished with the van, and no risk of fiat ducking out of responsibilities due to "chipping" just remove the box before servicing! it is easy to unplug.
    hope this helps.:thumb: fixitjohn.

    Had my Pug 2.8 done at Birmingham show last year and "WOW" is all i can say if you dont need to change you save the gas, running round corners and roundabouts in 4th is also a boon.
    No more shunting down on long hills.
    Best mod i have had done yet.
    Take Care

    ...Chipping

    We'll join the " IT DOES WORK " gang....on our 2.4 [56] Ford Diesel Turbo.

    Up from 125 to circa 160..apparently. Did it on a laptop directly linked to a chap in Germany !?!

    Helps with towing the YARIS - BUT not seen much improvement in MPG:Sad:

    Otherwise ...most pleased with power now available....though rarely used.:Smile:
