    Default Vauxhall's own upgraded diesel engine

    a mate of mine said that vauxhall did an upgrade on their 1.9 cdti engines (150 bhp) but not sure if that was on the astra or vectra. He said it was running about 205 bhp. Is that true and if so, on what one??

    cheers

    Loads of people have remapped or fitted tuning boxes to cdti 150's giving power outputs of from 185 to over 220 bhp. As said above 888 brought out a special edition astra cdti which I beleive started out as a standard astra Sri 1.9 120 bhp (VX fitted the same 1.9cdti 16v engine to both the 120 & 150 bhp model Astras (for a while) but with different engine maps)

    The 888 as mentioned above had 200BHP, it was accused of being a diesel VXR..... However, they're probably rare and an awful lot of people try to make out they have rare editions of their car simply because nobody has ever seen a real one.

    A chap once tried to tell me that his Impreza GL was a special race edition with the bonnet scoop removed to improve aerodynamics......

    Says warranty for so many miles iirc

    Found this on a different site:

    'Mapping from Thorney Motorsports does not invalidate your Vauxhall Warranty on parts not associated with or effected by tuning'
    can't be 100% on that so would check with vxl

    another edit, sorry

    Welcome to Thorney Motorsport, the UK's only fully Vauxhall approved authorised service and repair centre who specialise in the tuning and race preparation of Vauxhall cars. We specialise in tuning and enhancing the full range of Vauxhall vehicles from simple ECU remaps to complete race car preparation upgrading power, handling and braking performance as well as being able to service your car and keep your Vauxhall warranty intact, TMS is the same as a Vauxhall dealer, we just don't sell cars.
