    Default D Turbo or HDI?

    I really really want one of the two.

    I love my current 306 but the engine has no poke to it (1.4)

    How much am I looking at getting a Dtub or HDI for?
    I want another 306 as I have fallen in love with how comfortable they are.

    Also what do you reckon I'd get for my 1999 imperial blue 1.4 LX?

    Depends what you want from it. If you want a more refined engine / power delivery then go for the HDi. It has good tuning potential courtesy of remaps etc., all of which is covered in the DW10 section. The DT is easier to gain more power from, simple pump tuning and boost adjustment, but is a less refined drive. Again, more details can be found in the XUD section.

    Have a search, there are a few of these threads around

    Will you take a 1.4 and some cash for it? I'm a bit strapped for cash as you can probably guess

    And I'm more after fuel economy and a bit more power if you get me

    It's personal preference as to whether you like HDis or XUDs.....personally I'd go for a HDi as the XUDs are older, slightly less economical, all ph1/ph2 and I like ph3....BUT they are easy to increase power. So theres pro's and cons for both.

    Also why do you want a 306 for comfort?? For handling, cheap/easy maintenance, easy mods (40mm drop and 'clones) and lots of toys (meridian spec) then yeah.....but comfort?? Driving a VAG makes the 306 feel like it was on wooden wheels lol!!

    Yes, sorry. I didn't phrase myself very well. I know what a HDi DTurbo is, but it is hardly "the best of both" when it's a HDi, it has nothing to do with the early DTurbos that were being referenced. I.E. Just because it's called a DTurbo doesn't mean you can mod the engine in the same way as a "normal" DTurbo... Make more sense?
