AstraVan 1.9cdti Z19 DTH 285bhp 600nm

Current 2020 Spec

We’ve had Charlie’s AstraVan 1.9cdti in with us for a good while now.

The last time it was in, it left with 251bhp 583nm

Now after hours and hours of software alterations, diagnostics and hardware issues, its leaving us this time with pretty much 285bhp 600nm

Dialling in the 1.9 R80 high pressure fuel pump and 2200 fuel pressure regulator, we found issues with fuel delivery. Whether this is down to a different flow rate from the 1.9 R80 compared to the 2.4 Alfa R80 or a faulty 1.9 R80, we will have to wait until its pressure tested.

After switching over to the 2.4 Alfa R80 Fuel pump, we found a lot more fuel available.

We have seen an increase of 5bhp from the water meth on its lowest setting, but most importantly, a huge drop of 200 deg in EGT temps.

This isnt the final figures just yet, as we have a couple of hardware changes to account for and then run up on the dyno to check the effects.

This isnt about chasing figures on this vehicle, the task was to make it safer, which with EGT’s of around 600deg at WOT, we have achieved that ?

Spec:

Milltek Sport Turbo Back Exhaust With Sports Cat
AIRTEC Motorsport Front Mount Intercooler
80mm MAF
4bar MAP Sensor
‘327’ Injectors
Turbo Dynamics 1756 Spec Hybrid Turbo
2.4 R80 Fuel Pump
2200 Fuel Pressure Regulator
Devilsown Water/methanol Injection

❇️ VXR brakes all round
❇️ Quaife LSD is already fitted to the uprated bearing M32 box
❇️ Uprated Clutch

Another big thankyou to Charlie for allowing us to work on his van, and not to mention leaving it with us for even longer than planned ?

This time round wasnt straight forward in the slightest, but unknown time scale and custom software development come hand in hand. Which is what sets us apart from the rest offering mapping ??

2019 Spec

Remember Charlie’s 1.9cdti AstraVan we mentioned waaaaaay back in February?

Well, after 100+ dyno runs...over 120 hours of datalogging + map tweaks, 33 individual software versions, we have a final figure ?

...

This van has gone through various specs since we first met Charlie back in 2015.

Way back in Dec 2015 it left us with 180bhp 451nm

 

Nearly a year later, Nov 2016, with a few choice mods, this left us with 212bhp 503nm

 

This year it came back with a couple more mods, making 185bhp 437nm (running uprated injectors + hybrid turbo not dialled into the map)

 

Its leaving us this time with 251bhp 583nm ?

 

Spec:

Milltek Sport Turbo Back Exhaust
AIRTEC Front Mount Intercooler
80mm MAF
4bar MAP Sensor
‘327’ Injectors
Turbo Dynamics 1756 Spec Hybrid Turbo

 

Still on the standard high pressure fuel pump, no high egt’s and not maxing out just yet. We have an R80 pump and uprated fuel pressure reg for future power increases.

Charlie has uprated to VXR brakes all round and a Quaife LSD is already fitted to the uprated M32 box. Along with an uprated clutch.

 

This is still mapped to the sport button, so its still perfectly normal to drive off button. But once the sport button is pressed...? this is a seriously quick van!

Took me by surprise ? and im used to driving quick cars ?

Theres still scope for more power from this engine though ?

 

Big thankyou to Charlie for allowing us to work on his van, and not to mention leaving it with us for so long.
Unknown length of time and custom software development come hand in hand. Which is what sets us apart from the regular mapping outfits ??
