My 243ps Diesel Transit Mk7

My own Transit, a 2008 Ex RAC Short wheel base  / low roof  with a 5 cylinder 3.2l Duratorq engine, makes about 240ps & 580nm Torque, thats about 20% up from a  stock 200 Transit  & about 120% up from when i bought it 2 years back,  when it made just 105ps ( as a 2.4) .. , the plan , now pretty much achieved , was 50ps per cylinder with no hardware mods.

Here is the 1st run, bog standard,  from July 2015

200ps Transit Dyno


& the 2nd run, with tuning reloaded via the Droid, straight after…….

243ps - 580nm

A hybrid turbo is probably next, but there’s the issue of the stock boost mapping limits or MAP sensor to get around 1st.. the MAP sensor is a 2.5bar unit as used on all other lesser Mk7’s .. it maybe time to test the zener diode trick..
