    Hi not had it done myself and I have not found anyone else yet that has.
    I think a fair few of us with the 1.8vvt would be very interested in your results if you do go ahead.

    I've been thinking of ways to improve performance in my Vectra 1.8 VVT too...

    Remapping for 300 bucks and only getting a relatively small gain really isn't what I'm looking for though.

    I'm going to ask the question...

    Replace the engine with a 2.0 Turbo... or just sell my car and buy a beefier one?

    Reason why I ask about the engine replacement is because I've already spent a small fortune on getting it how I want it to look and feel (bodykit, suspension, exhausts, filter, window tints, etc.). It's just the performance that is letting me down now. In fact, performance is pretty much shocking in this car. To the point that I've given up on overtaking ANY other car on the road being afraid that it won't actually do it!

    Sell it and swap over any bits you can. It'll be cheaper and much easier with a million less problems than trying to fit another engine mate...
