Hi guys,

So I recently just purchased a wicked little Corsa 1.7 DTI for £500, only 60k miles on the clock.

However, I want to do some work with it but I've never tuned/modded a car before.

Things like Alloys I don't have a problem with looking into however, when it comes to performance I have no clue, the general aim is to just boost the performance of this car in general.

Where can I find exhausts, dump valves etc for my car? And how do I get into remapping it etc.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

Thanks in adance.

Leave the the chav valve, no point on a diesel,you should get a 'choo' from the exhaust with a less restrictive exhaust. you can get a stainless exhaust built on the car for around £500, as for re-map have a good look for a reputable company in your area.

Thanks mate, I'm having troubles looking for a decent company if I'm honest but I'll keep looking.

May be one of those things where I might have to travel some miles to get there, I live around the Northampton area so I'll probably end up going to Birmingham or something

They certainly used to, but they might have changed their area of work.

In all honesty I don't know how much can be done to the 1.7 diesels. You might be able to get a tuning box plugged in which would be a good starting point perhaps?

A good tuner is worth travelling for.
