Insignia VXR Tuning

Vauxhall Logo
Insignia VXR

The Vauxhall Insignia VXR.

Dynamic and passionate driving has a new name at Vauxhall: Insignia VXR, available in Europe as the Opel Insignia OPC

For the first time, a VXR model is equipped with an adaptive 4x4 system, an electronic rear limited slip differential (eLSD) and a 'HiPerStrut' front suspension system. The four-wheel drive management unit has been recalibrated to adapt torque distribution to the sporty philosophy of the VXR.

The Insignia VXR is equipped with 18” Brembo front brakes with large, 355 x 32 mm, cross-drilled discs, four-piston, high-strength aluminum calipers and high performance brake pads. Specially developed Co-Cast floating discs consist of a cast iron brake rotor and an aluminum disc bell.
After intensive testing on public roads and at the Nürburgring Nordschleife, engineers from the Opel Performance Center in Rüsselsheim selected Pirelli P Zero 245/40 tires, which are fitted with flow-formed 19” wheels.

The most powerful production engine in Vauxhall/Opel history:

At the heart of the Insignia VXR is Vauxhall’s advanced 2.8-litre V6 Turbo ECOTEC engine, with its micro-alloy forged steel crank, classic 60-degree cylinder angle and die-cast alloy oil sump – all features found in many a race engine. Producing 325 bhp and a massive 435 Nm (321lb ft) of torque, makes it Vauxhall’s most powerful production car of all time. The engine uses a single, twin-scroll turbocharger and variable valve control for quick throttle response, this high performance Insignia saloon produces a sub-six second zero to 60 time, and reaches (where permissable) an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph.

Insignia VXR
The VXR 2.8 V6 Turbo engine benefits from a specific calibration of the engine management unit, an increased turbo boost pressure to 0.9 bar and a reworked exhaust system with a significantly reduced counter pressure. Developed by the specialist Remus, this stainless steel exhaust line is 20 percent lighter than the standard one. Because sound is so important in the appreciation of an engine, Opel acoustic engineers developed new center and rear mufflers. The high-tech 2.8 V6 Turbo engine comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox and to offer optimal performance, the final drive ratio was slightly shortened from 3.76 to 3.90:1 compared with the standard V6 Turbo versions.

So what can we do?

Insignia VXR ECU Remapping

All our Insignia VXR  remapping is carried out serially, through OBD II/diagnostic port directly into the vehicle's ecu.
All our maps are bespoke written for us to suit your requirements. If your car does not fit into the categories listed, for example you have a different exhaust configuration, we can and will write a bespoke map and tailor it to your vehicle.
Courtenay Sport ECU Remap
We carry out a full engine diagnostic test first. Then Exclusive Courtenay Sport software is installed raising the boost levels, whilst optimising the fuel and timing/ignition curves.
Peak Power Increase to 340bhp

Torque: 390-410+ lb ft
(530-550+ Nm)
£595 Fitted including datalogging and set up
Insignia VXR 2.8 V6 Turbo Engine With an ecu remap we can take the Insignia VXR up to a peak of about 340 bhp (temperature and environmental conditions dependent). Whilst this only equates to a 15 bhp gain at peak, don't think that's all this is about or that our remap is not worth a second glance. Whilst the peak gains are not that impressive it is not all about out and out peak power gains.............

Our remap gives a massive hike of about  +90-100 bhp in the mid range at 3,700 rpm and a gain of around +100-140 lb ft torque which completely transforms this car's on road ability. Mid range performance is simply breath taking!
High Flow Panel Filter.
We also suggest the addition of one of our High Flow re-useable Panel Filters £34.95. Buy Now Click Here!
FREE fitting as part of a Stage upgrade.


The use of Shell V-Power 99 RON, or a similar Super Unleaded fuel, is required on all remapped vehicles.

Front Pipe and Sports Cat

Downpipe and HJS Euro 5 Sport Cat To further improve mapping gains we have developed a high flow front pipe/downpipe with a centre sports cat section, which fits directly onto the OE cat back exhaust system. Reduces back pressure and EGT, and improves turbo response. This removes the OE pre cat and replaces the main cat. This arrangement uses a special HJS Euro 5 motorsport cat for diagnostic reasons. During development lower quality cheaper cats were tried but these resulted in ecu diagnostic issues, which is why we reverted to the high quality HJS cat which was finally chosen. Front Pipe and Cat Centre Section £1299.00

Uprated Performance Intercooler

For the ultimate intercooler kit for Insignia VXR we teamed up with our tuning partner in Germany Klasen Motors and Pro Alloy Motorsport, who fabricate all our intercooler and water radiator products. As with all their products this intercooler is beautifully fabricated and delivers constant low inlet charge temperatures and lower back pressure, resulting in a higher power output over the whole rev range. The intercooler is mounted in front of the aircon radiator and because of its highly efficient core leaves enough cold air for the other radiators mounted behind. The complete kit comes with a set of silicone hoses, aluminium elbows, clamps and mounting brackets. Price £865.00

Courtenay Sport Panel Filter

Our high flow, high efficiency air filter uses a special foam which gives better airflow than even the most popular cotton gauze aftermarket filters. Our filters offer the very highest level of dirt retention and protection (Of course! After all we're engine builders!) and you can clean it and re-use it just like most other performance filters.

Each filter is supplied pre-oiled and ready for first use. For cleaning, simply wash out the underside of the filter using warm water and washing up liquid until clean, rinse through from the top to the bottom of the filter, allow to dry and lightly re-oil before re-fitting. Filter oil is available seperately for subsequent re-oiling after cleaning.

For Steinmetz Opel-Tuning and Klasen Motors (our tuning partner), the ideal place for breaking the existing speed world record for a road-legal Opel.....
The Insignia Sports Tourer OPC set a new record top speed of 287.4 km/h (178.5 mph) putting the Insignia Sports Tourer OPC by Steinmetz / Klasen right at the top of the Opel best ever list. Steinmetz provided the styling, the 20" wheels and lowered the chassis.

At Nardo
  The Powerplant
The Powerplant
Klasen Motors, our tuning partner, fitted a modified intercooler which was supplied by Courtenay Sport, a larger turbo with 3" exhaust system including rear silencer, a modified fuel injection system and reprogrammed the engine electronics (ecu remap); these components being responsible for the incredible performance upgrade.

Developing 400 HP at 5250 rpm and 550 Nm (406.5 lb ft), there is plenty of power available in every situation to satisfy even the keenest and most enthusiastic driver.
