This summer has seen a substantial increase in tuning demand for the A20NFT engine. This combined with the ECU’s use in the new Corsa E VXR has seen us spending many hours on the dyno looking at data with Stephan getting his teeth firmly into the intricacies, oddities, protocol and hidden depths of the Delco ECU required for example in bigger airflow and turbo applications.
With Stephan visiting us this week we took the opportunity carry out some further testing work on our own Astra J VXR, already fitted with our Courtenay Sport Racing intercooler and full turbo back 3″ (76mm) twin silenced exhaust system. A lot of time was spent with the car on the rolling road and further updates were made to the software. One of the objectives this week was to further test and calibrate our soon to be released induction kit in order to to fully understand where the best gains are made. To do this a number of filter and air mass housing combinations were tested before finally settling on our preferred design for the A20NFT engine.
