Well Sawan, the Octi is just 2 months old, so no chipping till the warranty runs out next in 10 months. I have a friend here who has the chip coming to him any day now, so I have the added benefit of doing all the groundwork on his car first that means by the time i get it, we should know all the intricacies of it...hehehe.

Oh yea, it costs around 300 pounds.

hi carfreak....first of all welcome to tbhp.

I own an accent crdi as well...could you please find out more information about that device...and is it safe? as in wont damage the ecu? because in the US many hyundai cars were known for blowing their ECUs after some sort of modifications were carried out.

Personally i think 25000 bucks for 10bhp increase is a little too much. But do find out more about it.

if you can go upto 130bhp why would you ever want to switch back to 130bhp? does the fuel requirement change? i mean in petrol you have 87/91/93/98 octane, something similar for diesel??

A normally aspirated diesel engine is quite difficult to mod. I had looked around exhaustingly for any kind of turbo kit for my ford escort diesel and my mercedes c250 diesel, but couldn't find anything. You can try to go in for a DIY (Do It Yourself) turbo kit like what a couple of people have done with their honda city's, but the risks are quite huge. I myself have blown a lancer engine as the gas was adulterated.

An already Turbo'd diesel car can quite easily be modded for more power. A CRDi engine is most easily chippable to up the boost. Even a regular TC'd Diesel car can be chipped to get more power out of the engine.

Regular mods like air filter and free flowing exhausts, do make a difference on the performance, but the difference is only marginal compared to the change possible in Petrol engined cars.

a simple fail proof way of increasing performance is to get k&n filter.
most of the free flow exhausts are based on petrol cars,so if at all anyone says that they can do one for a diesel then it will be a simple trial n error way.adn most probably urs will be the first car.
if at all anyone wanted performance ,why did that person ever prefer a diesel over a petrol car.a diesel is bought for its economy ,then why the ehck do u want to play around with it.
its like all those fools buying a splendor having bought a splendor or passion for economy and then do all the mods for power.and end up fitting only a loud exhaust.
no offence meant to anyone .

Dude modern diesels are giving petrol cars a run for their money so these days you cannot say people buy diesels for economy. Drive the accent crdi or an octavia tdi and you'll just fall in love with the huge amount of torque these engines are capable of producing.

N plus my crdi does have a modified exhaust...i wouldnt call it a full blown freeflow coz the headers have not been touched yet. The performance gain is only slight but the best part is the vibrations below 1500rpm have reduced drastically and i still manage to get around 19-20kmpl on the highway if i drive sensibly. And yeah if anyone has any more information about chipping please share it. Thanks...I'd sure like to know if there are any chips available for the crdi i havent been able to locate one till now.

I think the vibrations are only when the engine just starts .
On the move the vibrations are nil or less

This is common to both accent and elantra diesel

hi,

Try driving the crdi in 5th while doing 45kmph...the vibrations when you try to accelerate are awful. After installing the new exhaust the engine boom and vibrations have shifted to a lower rev band...that is around 1000rpm...

In normal conditions the car only vibrates on startups and sometimes when you turn it off. Its only under heavy load conditions (as in doing 45kmph in 5th) do these vibrations come to the fore.

And the reason i've been told is that there is relatively less back pressure in the new exhaust system as compared to the stock one...so the engine boom and vibrations have reduced. Either way, the car has become more driveable in town especially when you can stay in higher gears for longer...and this surely has had a positive impact on fuel economy.
