We had this 2009 Insignia VXR with us recently for ecu remapping and full set up. It had covered about 55,000 miles and had already had the second cat removed by the owner, with the pre cat still in place. Mapping and set up resulted in 348 bhp and 396 lb/ft torque, up on a […]
We had a lovely 40 something thousand mile Corsa VXR in with us recently which had been fitted with a full 3″ exhaust system, twin silencers and pre cat removed and also our high flow CSRacing full height intercooler.

This Vectra VXR came to us for mapping having already had an Insignia VXR Turbo unit and an intercooler fitted. The cats had also been removed prior to its visit. Once in our rolling road bay, a set of uprated injectors were fitted and then the car was mapped and set up on the rolling […]
A recent mapping session on a VX220 2.2 with a self-install supercharger conversion. Initially brought in a while ago for mapping the car achieved 216bhp, lower than the expected Stage 2 power due to a restrictive exhaust system identified during the first mapping session. Brought back to us with a derestricted 2.5″ front pipe and […]
We had this lovely low mileage Corsa VXR Blue Edition with us recently. If it was feeling ‘blue’ before it arrived, it certainly wasn’t when it left, after having a full 3″ exhaust system fitted, NGK iridium plugs, a panel filter, large bore inlet pipe and uprated recirculation valve followed by ecu remapping and a […]

It has been a busy week for us for Corsa VXR tuning. This Glacier White car is our second Corsa VXR Nürburgring Stage 2 Upgrade in a week. We fitted our full 3″ turbo back exhaust first: Followed by custom mapping, datalogging (including ignition timing, knock retard, injectors, boost pressure, fuelling), map optimisation to suit […]

This Astravan with Z20LEH engine, steel rods and GTX2867 garrett build was brought in for mapping and full rolling road set up. The map it was brought to us with (which was not our software) was checked first and shown to be running 320bhp, with some fuelling and ignition timing issues. We switched to a […]
Rolling Road mapping session to optimise software settings on this Astra H VXR, which has had some hardware alterations since it was first mapped. Before and after mapping saw gains of between 12-34bhp and 5-20 lb ft torque.

Another question we are constantly being asked is about remapping and correct set up and why this is better than a hand held unit. Many people like the convenience of installing a map from a hand held unit (and are often ‘sold’ the same results as bespoke mapping, which invariably is not the case), but […]
