Hi Vikki - what's the unrestricted full potential of the T4 engine? is 250+ HP and 400nm possible while still being reliable? Can the geartronic take that kind of punishment? Thanks!

Hey Subtlesilver!!

Are you doing any further modifications to the car??

As this is already a high pressure application on the 1.9t version - as opposed to the others where they are a relatively low pressure application - RICA recommend 235hp you might be able to get a little bit more but you would risk the turbo becoming a heat pump and the ECU will just back itself off anyway. Of course it depends on the current state of the cars health etc. This is of course using super unleaded fuel & not a year old 95 ron lol!!

Best regards

Vikki

The t4 is a 1.6t engine..
It's about the new v40 and not the old one which was capable of doing a lot more... And was a 1.9t...

Sorry I'd assumed you were talking about the 1.9t, nothing otherwise was specified, sorry! :)
With the 1.6T t4, 250bhp is expecting a little too much without extensive modifying in my opinion.

Hello Vikki,
do you know approximately when the tuning options for the D2 will come out? I've heard rumours that it will be a sort of powerbox, and not a real OBD-chiptuning?
Can you tell anything more?
