The difference will be very noticeable, I remember when I had one fitted to the red 19TZD before the 2012 Challenge (still the best holiday Ive ever had) and I couldn't believe the difference!

Update.
I just picked the car up and it’s really started chugging and smoking LOTS (unburnt diesel) and is well down on power. It’s had a new fuel filter (old one was minging), oil/filter change, air filter’s ok. Have confirmed the glow plugs are absolutely fine and the engine is ok. It seems the pump is failing. Given how much crap was in the filter can (plus a fair amount of dirty water too), there could be an injector issue too but bunging a load of Millers cleaner through the system can’t hurt initially so we’ll see how it all behaves after the pump is changed.

Hopefully have a replacement pump waiting.... we'll see how it goes 🙂

Starting to think I should’ve passed on it lol, but I know once it’s sorted it’ll be great. 😬

Its just lack of use Phil and she is an old girl, its simple mechanics so easily fixed.

Could be an injector.

Yes, I know - it's a bit frustrating but we'll get there. :)
