As to the tweak it is quite common knowledge!!!
why dont you be really helpful and start a thread with landy tweeks for 200/300 and td5 so we can get as much performance as you do, you can take some pics and give instructions on what we need to do, would be very helpful

Save yourself the trouble Hugh, just 'google' it yourself - that's what would happen anyway

If I can shave 5 seconds off my 0-60 time just by turning a screw im off to get the socket set out on the clio and then tear up a few Evo's Surely if this made such dramatic increases to performance why didn't manufacturers do it in the first place??

Is it a diesel? Does it have a mechanical pump? Emissions regs that's why!!!

So the answer to my previous question is yes then!

I would take a guess that unless you've declared this "tweak", your insurance could be invalid, particularly now that you've documented the fact that you have deliberately modified your vehicle with the stated intention of significant performance increase.
