This car had previously been in for a full engine rebuild with forged pistons and steel rods, strengthening the factory Z20LET engine and was running a K04 Z20LEH VXR turbocharger, Milltek 63.5mm exhaust system, Pro Alloy chargecooler and VXR injectors. It returned to us to have some further enhancements which included a full 76mm Tullett […]
This Meriva VXR had visited us before for a remap, and came back to have some further improvements carried out. We removed the pre-cat and fitted a straight through pre-cat replacement pipe (downpipe) to remove the restrictive first cat, fitted a set of NGK iridium plugs and a high flow Courtenay Sport panel filter. Then […]
Another returning customer coming back to us this time with his 7,000 mile Insignia VXR for mapping, having previously has his Vectra VXR mapped by us. Latest spec and an otherwise standard car, and a little under a year old we carried out the mapping, map optimisation, datalogging and full rolling road set up achieving […]
Astra H VXR Nurburgring. Already fitted with a Remus 70mm stainless steel exhaust system and uprated intercooler this car came in recently for mapping and rolling road set up. Results: A very healthy 293bhp and 339 lb ft torque.
Just for a change we recently had a Focus ST here for remapping and rolling road set up. Already fitted with a cat back exhaust system (the standard downpipe and cat had not been changed) and an intercooler, we remapped the ecu and carried out a rolling road set up achieving 261bhp and 311 lb […]
We had another Astra J VXR in for mapping this week and it is good news that we are now seeing more and more of them. ECU remapping alone makes such a big improvement. Otherwise a standard car, the ecu was treated to some enhancement offering much more mid range power and torque with good […]
Courtenay Sport Stage 1 ECU Remap Exclusive Courtenay Sport Stage 1 Software Upgrade. Software customising whilst on our rolling road optimising fuelling, full boost and ignition maps, Full Power and Torque Graph Print Outs. Our Stage 1 upgrade gives much better low end response combined with a smother and flatter torque curve, whilst at the […]
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 […]
On more than one occasion we have extolled the virtues of a good, free flowing 76mm sports exhaust system for Astra VXR to get the best performance results out of remapping correctly. Well here is another classic example…….. The car in question is an Astra VXR 2.0 Turbo which was fitted with a Stage 1.5 […]
over just a 3″ (76mm) cat back exhaust system. Had an Astra VXR in today, for an additional exhaust upgrade. The car had previously been to us, not many weeks ago, for an ecu remap and rolling set up, having already had our 3″ (76mm) Cat back exhaust system fitted but running a standard pre-cat […]
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 […]
A VX220 Turbo in need of correct mapping and set up. We were asked to carry out a health check due to the feeling of holding back when on track, so we data logged the ecu to see what a competitor’s map was doing, with quite unbelievable results.
We then set about carrying out a full bespoke ecu remap and set up with fantastic results.
