    Basically, is it worth it?...

    I have heard it will increase the engine from 129bhp to 141bhp and from 180nm to 200nm.

    Although I like the car, the Vauxhall Vectra I had prior to this was a 205bhp diesel with 480nm.

    So this feels like a slug... (although a hell of a lot nicer!) and the vectra was doing 45mpg... this is like 32!

    So would I notice much more power and improved economy??

    Thanks,

    Carlo

    Probably not a fantastic improvement... If its fuel economy and more power you are after then id suggest selling and buying or part exing your car for a 320d or a 325d then look into remapping that.

    There is not much you can do with non turbo petrol engine, unless you can afford complete engine rebuild with performance parts.

    Its a normal petrol engine, fixed by the design of the entire top end to deliver its stock power.... leave it alone and spend your money on more petrol if you want to go faster....

    The remap on these transforms the car
    The car in standard form is sluggish
    Has no power off the mark if it's a manual you will find you may stall the engine the first few times you moved the car
    If you want to pull away fast and you hold the revs up you will find the revs will drop then start to pick up

    Our remap will fix all these problems as well as making the car alot nicer to drive and taking
    Half a second of the 0-60 time

    Remapping 4cyl petrol wouldn't bother diesel yes petrol without turbo no. If it was £100 map for that power yes anymore ain't worth it.
