CSR intake system for OE standard Air Mas meter consists of a AEM Dry Flow air filter, the CSR heat deflector shield complete with all the brackets and fittings with the option of our Courtenay Sport High flow inlet hose and adaptor.

Kit price to install onto the OE inlet hose. £159.00 (shown left)
Optional upgrade to high flow inlet hose and adaptor for OE 70mm AFM £84.50 (shown right in blue)

CSR MaxAir 80mm Intake System

CSR uprated intake system featuring our own 80mm high flow trumpeted air mas meter housing.

This housing has proven itself beyond compare in our Astra J VXR tuning program so we have introduced this in a package to suit the Corsa E VXR with exceptional results. The CSR housing is shaped to get the most air we can across the whole of the air mass meter without the need for the restriction of an inbuilt air straightener, to achieve the best flow possible. This combined with a large diameter AEM Dry Flow air filter give a massive increase in air flow potential.

The kit comes complete with a custom-made CSR heat deflector shield along with all the brackets and fittings and our own high flow reinforced inlet pipe down to the turbo.

Note: All cars fitted with the 80mm induction systems will need to have the cars ECU re-calibrated to scale the air mass meter correctly to take advantage of its larger size and to stop the EML coming on for to exceeding the 70mm air flow limits.

Corsa E VXR Mapping and Full Exhaust

This Corsa E VXR came to us to have a full turbo back 3″ exhaust fitted, followed by map optimisation to suit the exhaust and full rolling road set up.

Once set up the results were an impressive 241bhp and 244 lb ft torque. We also carried out our own unique hardware fix and software recalibration to the air flow meter to allow it to read and fuel correctly above 222bhp, where it is known that the standard air flow meter maxes out.

We also have in development the CSR MaxAir Intake System for Corsa E VXR, which will feature an enlarged airflow meter housing and large AEM Dryflow cone filter.

Corsa E VXR Stage 3 Mapping

Another Corsa E VXR which was brought to us for mapping and rolling road set up.

This car had already had a Cobra 3″ exhaust system and Airtec intercooler fitted to it by the customer and had previously been mapped. Prior to mapping we benchmarked the car on our rolling road to establish its base power and torque figues which were 227 bhp and 246 lb ft torque.

We then remapped the ecu and carried out a full rolling road set up with datalogging and optimised the software to suit the fitted components.

When finished the car is now producing 245 bhp and 259 lb ft torque with gains right across the rev range compared to the previous remap.

Corsa E VXR Front Pipe and Remap

In our workshop today was this 7,000 mile Corsa E VXR with the latest version of the 1.6 Turbo engine, B16LES. The first job was to remove the restrictive pre cat (first cat) and fit one of our straight through downpipes (pre cat removal pipe). Once fitted it was round into the dyno cell for remapping with full rolling road set up.

Running on Shell V-Power (99RON) fuel the results were 235bhp and 248 lb ft torque, with power and torque gains right across the rev range.
