Another Astra 1.9 CDTi 150PS

Had another Astra 1.9 SRi CDTi (150PS) in on the rolling road today.

What a fantastic car and engine combination. An ecu remap resulted in nice and safe 185 bhp with 330 lb ft torque; more than enough to trade blows with an Astra VXR! Plus 50 miles per gallon.

A remapped Astra H CDTi SRi (with a rear ARB and DAP spring set) has got to be the best cross-country hack around at the moment. Great chassis, plenty of go and it will leave your fuel card (credit card) in your wallet for that little bit longer!!

The ecu reflash had been carried out by an authorised dealer however it had not been check on a rolling road (as the installer did not have one).

VX220 Turbo Health Check

We had a VX220 Turbo booked in the other week as the customer had reported that the car seemed to be holding back on track. He thought it might be a fuelling issue and asked us to carry out a health check on the rolling road, datalog the ecu to see what the current map was doing and report back.

The car was running a ‘Stage 2′ ecu remap and has a full 2.5″ exhaust system. After our initial datalogging rolling road session we received a bit of a shock when we plotted the results ……..
