MG ZR ZS ZT Technical - ZR Turbo

Does anyone know of any garages that would be equipped to adjust the waste gate and fuel mapping on my ZR. Has anyone modified a TD. It is pretty rapid already but I know I can get more from the car.. Any ideas anyone ???


Hi Rich

I read an article in November 01 issue of triple C magazine about a Company which tuned a Rover 200 with the 2 litre turbo engine (which is the same as the ZR I think).

Basically they upped the boost a small amount, altered
the timing of the fuel delivery and modified the intercooler to improve gas flow. They managed to up the bhp from 110 to 130 with 205lb ft torque (up from 192). The price quoted was 680 plus VAT.

The Company is called J.E. Engineering of Coventry (no contact details though).

Hi Rich,

how long have you had your TD, and what are your impressions so far?

I've brought one myself, which arives next month.



i think it's powerzone who advertise in the mags sell a tuning box which plugs into the factory connectors before the ecu, this is supposed to give an extra 20-30bhp.

I have an MG ZR TD and think the engine is fantastic. The build quality of the rest of the car leaves a lot to be desired though.

Andy, I've had it for 3 months now and 6000 miles later I am still as excited to drive it as the day I got it. You won't be dissapointed. (quicker than the 160 in mid range too) :o)


PS.. Guys.. thanks for the helpfull advice... Little black box coming my way shortly...

I know JE well and their facilities are superb. A race developed L series diesel in one of the dyno cells was making very good power too!
