Just a quick hello!

Just joined the group after buying my first Citroen.......a 2L C4 VTS. Will be messing about with this quite a bit, as I have been building/modifying bikes for a few years now (last couple were a Honda CB1300/Blackbird streetfighter, and a custom Triumph hardtail), but due to moving house I have lost my workshop space :0(

Anyways, gonna start with a couple styling parts for the C4 (got a little laquer peel on the bonnet and roof that needs looking at so may as well), DPF removal, induction kit and re-map.

Couple starting pics........

I'm assuming it's a 2.0 HDi?

If so then if found the DPF has been removed at MOT time it will be a fail.

On a diesel C4 an induction kit is pretty pointless and could actually degrade performance, the remap will transform the car but will potentially shorten the life of the Dual Mass Flywheel

Hey guys,

Yep true about the MOT risk Dave. I have a guy that has been looking after my bikes for a few years now when MOT time comes up, so providing the C4 get's past the emissions test (of course it will) MOT will be no problem.

Interested to hear what the mpg/performance benefits are of a remap, and weigh up the clutch wear. I do pretty much all my work myself, so it's not a massive problem, providing it's worth it.

You will get circa +35 bhp and +55ft/lb of torque, mpg gain will be negligible as you'll be planting your right foot all the time to feel that additional power

Really, thats a decent gain Dave! That's just for a straight re-map? Has anyone posted up any dyno results by any chance?

I'm sure someone did, but for a petrol variant. The figures come from Angel Tuning who I used on my 1.6HDi and it did transform the car. - Click Here -
