Improve Fiat Fiorino 1.7TD power and fuel efficiency

Hi. I would really appreciate it if you could help me locate or give me information on improving the power and efficiency of a 1998 Fiat Fiorino 1.7TD van. Overall it is the best van I've driven, but I do feel it is a little heavier on fuel than it needs to be and even though it by no means lacks power, I feel it is not giving me its all :) I have heard of chips in certain model cars that can be changed and instantly provide both of these results? Is such a chip available for the Fiat Fiorino? Thanks for your time!

I think I have to disapoint you, Such a chip is nog availible for the fiorino, and with a reason to.. The fiorino is an old fashion diesel engine, without the electronics. Just a normal diesel pump, not one of these newfashion high presior commanrail pumps. And an old fashion fixed turbo, not one with variable geometrics that are changed by a new chip.. The only wat to improve the performace is the old fasion way, by a bigger turbo, or An intercooler, or an other airintake filter, or all of these for the best result.. Hope my awnser helps.. Mario
