A bit of background....
I purchased a GU 11. 2000 model zd30 almost 2 years ago, ( about 240,000km on her ) since that time, engine wise I have added a cross country intercooler, 2.75 inch exhaust, Dtronic, snorkel and done the usual recommended engine mods. Ie: guages, blocked egr, Dawes valve etc... I have also done all the servicing myself ( oil and filters ever 5,000k, diffs transfer oils etc.... the car is running well with no issues whatsoever

My question : would I benefit from a visit to a diesel tuning specialist for a dyno tune etc.....? Or does the vehicles ecu and the dtronic make the adjustments on the fly so to speak.

Pardon my ignorance , my other diesel motor has no computer ( ol faithful ) and my petty has more computers than just about any other car, thus it is a workshop service only affair.

I reckon you would for sure. I do not have the same vehicle as you, but from what I have read, a professional tune gets a good result on most vehicles.

the biggest challange is once you decide to pay someone to tune you engine is finding someone you can trust to do the job correctly.

Make sure you research the supplier well to ensure you get the results you are after.

Hopefully someone here can tell you of a good service agent in your area.

Well there you go, I thought the Dtronic could be adjusted.

You cant tune a ZD30 or DTronic as a short answer.
Yeah, I had a feeling that was the case. Not that I'm complaining the car goes quite well.... Just trying to look after the lil banger.
