Vectra VXR Tuning

Vauxhall Logo
 
Vectra VXR
The Vectra VXR. The top-of-the-line engine for the Vectra is the 2.8 litre unit, newly developed by GM Powertrain, with numerous high-tech features. The turbo unit shares many of these features with the two six-cylinder naturally aspirated engines (2.8 and 3.6 litre), which are also part of the new fully aluminium range, used worldwide by General Motors. As well as a classic cylinder angle of 60 degrees and overhead camshafts driven by dual chains, common features with the 24-valve unit include variable valve control and a four-bearing crankshaft made from micro-alloyed forged steel - a material also commonly used in racing engines.

Details such as friction-reducing coated pistons highlight the extensive design work that went into the V6 engines. The pistons are equipped with hard anodized ring slots for a longer life cycle, run in cast iron bushes and are oil-spray cooled. Sintered connecting rods, exhaust valves filled with sodium for better cooling, and the oil sump, which is especially rigid due to its die-cast aluminium construction, also represent state-of-the-art technology.

The twin-scroll turbocharger is reserved for the 9.5:1 compression ratio top-of-the range unit for the Vectra. The intercooler system, which is centrally mounted above the transmission, has an integrated waste gate and supplies the engine with a maximum of 0.6 bar excess pressure. The turbine wheel is made of a high-quality special steel composition. Due to its twin-scroll design, the turbine is fed simultaneously from both rows of cylinders. Separate channels, one for each bank of cylinders, separate the exhaust gas pulses. On the one hand, this operating principle minimizes turbocharger energy losses and, on the other hand, it has a positive effect on the exhaust gas flow and efficiency. Rapid response and excellent torque even at low engine speeds are also provided by the continuous, electronically controlled, hydraulic phasing of the inlet camshafts. They can be adjusted over a range of 50 degrees with respect to the crankshaft, in order to optimally vary the valve timing and thus optimize the charge cycle to suit the engine load and speed. Like the outlet shafts, the inlet shafts are also made from high-strength aluminium. This makes them particularly light, heat-resistant and durable.

Along with the turbocharger response, the rapid and smooth power development is mainly thanks to the 32-bit Bosch Motronic engine management system. The control unit software, which has been specially adapted to suit the Vectras, controls all key functions such as ignition timing, fuel injection, turbocharger pressure, air mass measurement and the throttle valve position. Like the technical data, the new engine’s power development is also impressive. The 2.8 litre unit provides 90 percent of its 330 Nm (245 lb ft) maximum torque at only 1500 rpm. This top figure in its displacement class is then available over a wide range of 1800 to 4500 rpm. The engine’s driving performance is equally impressive. Early Vectra VXR models left the factory with 255 bhp and the later model years have had a revised management programme installed at factory to give 280 bhp.

So what can we do?

Vectra Stage 2/3 Insignia VXR Turbo Upgrade

Overview
Our goal with this upgrade was to improve the power spread across the rev range and remove the almost “diesel” like power band & delivery found in the existing stage 1 remaps, which is a direct result of the standard Vectra VXR turbo not being able to deliver sufficient boost, of any real value in the last third of the rev range.

The development car used was already at stage 1 and equipped with our uprated water radiator, FM Intercooler and a 3” front pipe, in preparation for the upgrade.

A Vectra VXR (whether standard or Stage 1) without these additional upgrades, as listed above, would still see a good power increase, with the Insignia’s Turbo, but the top end power would drop away due to flow restrictions through the exhaust and lack of inlet air cooling. We would still, however, recommend changing the water radiator, which can be an issue even for stage 1 cars when driven enthusiastically.

Installing the Insignia Turbo is a fairly straightforward job, but requires patience to ensure that all components required to facilitate an easy installation are removed and care is taken to prevent any damage to both the new and existing components.
Power
Having installed the Turbo and started the car, we performed an initial run to review the results, running on the Stage 1 map. We found that the standard injectors were running out of duty cycle at circa 330 -335 bhp causing the mixture to become lean (as you will appreciate a weak mixture can cause some very serious damage and very quickly). If we were to continue on the development path, with standard injectors, the top end boost would have to be reduced for the injectors to stay within their threshold. As a result we would be back to the diesel like torque derived power curve, which was not our goal. Therefore we changed the injectors for the higher flowing Insignia VXR ones. This enabled us to hold the boost at the top end to produce a power curve that sustained good high RPM power levels (as can be seen from the graphs).

It should be noted, even though we experimented with several different types of induction pipe work, the final results, were achieved using the standard induction pipes. Even opening up the air-box and changing the pipe work to 70mm all the way from the MAF to the turbo had no effect on the peak or through rev range power band. The only noticeable increase was turbo induction noise (which actually was quiet nice, but very subtle).
Torque
This turbo will produce massive torque figures. We saw 465 lbs ft (640nm) without really trying. However, common sense was telling us that with 2 wheel drive and the fact that the standard car can struggle at 400lbs ft this figure (465 lbs ft), whilst great for pub talk, would render the first 3 gears redundant. Also it would only serve to destroy the clutch and transmission in the remaining gears. As yet we are in 2 minds as to whether 430lbsft is still too much. However a little more time behind the wheel and the owner’s feedback will assist us in making a final decision.
Graphs
Looking at the graph below you can see that the big increase’s come from 4500 rpm, at which point the engine is producing an additional 40BHP, whilst at 5000 rpm there is producing an additional 52 bhp, and at 6500 rpm the engine is producing an impressive additional 62 bhp over the stage 1 remap. All this lends itself to a far more linear and sustained power delivery, feeling more like a traditional petrol engine.

Water Radiator and Intercooler Kit

It has been known for some time that the Vectra VXR Intercooler works very effectively in both standard and Stage One application. However, to explain our development a little further, we have detailed some of our findings below which have allowed us to take what we feel is the strategic approach with excellent results.

After having developed both the Intercooler and water radiator, with further testing over 4000 miles and in varying temperatures, it became apparent that although the inlet air temps had been reduced (and were shown to be excellent and stable), the water temperature was actually more significant to the car’s sustained performance than that of the intercooler, even in day to day running. This finding changed our development cycle to concentrate further efforts on the water radiator and the ancillaries.

Our further investigations found that the “turbo water return pipe” was placing super heated water directly into the expansion tank (we are sure you have seen a glowing orange turbo). This super heated water is in turn being fed back into the engine block. By developing a modified return feed to the expansion tank (still using the original feeds but re plumbed), temperatures of the water were reduced to those of the water radiator and not super heated from the turbo itself. This development has ensured that the recovery time of the water, after high speed driving, is reduced significantly. Also during constant and steady motorway driving the water temperatures stabilised at between 87-89 degrees. Furthermore the engine warms up from cold at the same rate, until the thermostat opens and then the water is regulated by the larger water radiator and special expansion tank return.

Rad mounted on reverse side.
Vectra VXR Intercooler Inlet
Intercooler lower left hand side showing OE inlet.
By developing the water radiator as a primary component, and to ensure that in day to day driving the water temperatures are kept as low as possible in the confines of the thermostat, once high power outputs are released then these can be supported with the confidence of reliable sustained performance. Furthermore, we consider that for a stage one re-map the water radiator benefits the car significantly more than the Intercooler does on its own, after all there is little point in having an engine package with a thumping great intercooler resulting in 150% efficiency on inlet air temperature and only 80% efficiency on water temperature.

As standard cars run high water temperatures, owners of these cars are also likely to benefit from the reduced the water temperatures, resulting in more sustained performance levels.

However, in reverting back to our original strategy, our findings have also concluded, that higher power outputs WILL require the new Intercooler, to ensure that inlet air temperatures are kept at the reduced levels that allow sustained performance, especially with the new turbo options now available for further development on the Vectra VXR.

Intercooler and Water Radiator outline.

Intercooler

The intercooler has been moved to the front of the car (in front of the air conditioning radiator) and is a full width and height, with a core twice the size of the original component. Fixings have been made to accommodate the air conditioning radiator on the rear, therefore requiring no additional pipe work replacement.
All the original pipe work has been retained in its original position, to allow ease of fixing and the development of silicone hoses, where a special set will not be required just for the intercooler (this keeps cost down for the owner).

Brake Discs and Pads

Our 16 grooved brake discs give instant response under the most demanding driving conditions. They provide superior brake fade characteristics over a wide temperature range and exceptional performance from cold. The grooved surface not only increases the surface area and thus aids cooling but the grooves also help to circulate air between the disc and the pads surface and also disperse brake dust and gas that can otherwise lead to brake fade.

16G Front Brake Disc
EBC Brake Disc EBC GD Sport Discs are made from high quality grey iron to exacting standards and undergo extensive testing and rigorous quality control and are then precision machined. The 'blind' drilled disc was invented by EBC back in the 90's and has been imitated by many because of its ability to offer pad degassing without "Through Drilling" the disc which has been shown to promote disc cracking around the drillings.

The wide aperture grooves on the EBC units actually draw cool air under the brake pad and disc surface and help cool the temperatures of the pad contact area which can increase to very high temperatures at the very heart of the brake pad during heavy braking and can cause brake fade or loss of brake effect.
These "Full sweep" grooves on the EBC disc also helps remove dirt, dust, debris and water from the braking area but without doubt the main benefit of such discs is their ability to maintain a flat and parallel pad surface throughout the lifetime of the brake pad set.

EBC sport discs are also gold anodised to help prevent from corrosion in areas which are not swept by the pad to help them stay looking better for longer.

The calipers are machined from aircraft quality billet with machined grooves to protect the bridge link pipes and have alluminium pistons, high temp seals and stainless steel brake pad wear plates.

The calipers are finished in Painted Black, Red, Yellow or Orange. Pads can be specified to suit requirements.
Red Ceramic pads make a good fast road pad, Yellow Ceramic pads make good fast road and track day pads, whilst Blue ceramic pads are available for track/race use. Other pad compounds including Pagid RS29 and Ferodo DS2500 are available.

The lightweight caliper come in differential bore configuration. They are machined from aircraft quality billet and weigh just over 3kgs each, and have protection grooves machined in for the bridge tubes. Aluminum pistons, high temperature seals, and stainless steel brake pad wear plates are also standard on each caliper. The opposed piston caliper design greatly improves pad wear and caliper rigidity over the OE design. The stainless steel brake lines stop expansion under pressure.
The kit uses the 2-piece disc assembly which reduces weight both rotating and unsprung. The floating disc also stops thermal stresses of extreme heat from warping the disc or cupping the braking surface. The unique slot design on the rotor greatly reduces braking noise and expels gas and pad debris faster than conventional slot designs. Every rotor is always heat treated and balanced before shipment for the best possible performance.

Quaife ATB Limited Slip Differential

Quaife ATB LSD Click for Full Size Image A direct replacement for the standard Vauxhall differential, the Quaife ATB differential transforms your car's performance, making getting the power down onto the road easier, for improved traction and driveability.

Unlike a conventional plate-style limited slip differential, the ATB diff relies on gears rather than clutch plates for its operation. That means it is much smoother in operation. Because of this, the ATB differential never locks harshly with a set pre-load of wheel slip across the driven axle, like a conventional LSD. Rather, the differential automatically biases the torque away from the spinning wheel across the axle, to a constantly varying degree, and never locks.
The Quaife ATB differential has many benefits over a standard open differential, including maximising traction and minimizing wheelspin, eliminating torque steer and snatching in front wheel drive cars compared to conventional LSD units, and a maintenance-free design which retains the standard oil lubrication.

Polyurethane Bushes Road

Attention to the factory rubber bushes is beneficial. They are made to be flexible to some extent to absorb harshness, but as they age the original rubber loses its 'tone' and gets slacker. This allows the suspension system to move relative to the chassis so the car's handling and response become less sharp. The grade of polyurethane used in our uprated bushes is not so hard as to cause undue harshness, however they provide a big improvement over standard and they keep their 'tone' much longer than the original rubber, so the effect lasts longer.
Kits are available as Front and Rear axle sets, or as individual bushes if required.

Unlike the original bushes, Polyurethane Bushes require no special tools to fit and are therefore a relatively easy DIY proposition - or we can fit them for you if you prefer.

Purple Bushes are for road use and have a material shore A harness of 80
