    Interesting to hear!

    I'm sure you're right when you say that the Saab versions of the 2.0T are the same engine, just different maps. i.e. the 175bhp and 210bhp are the same physical engine, just different software. It's just the 240bhp Aero that's got different bits.

    So in theory, if your dealer has got access to the Saab map it may very well work. I always thought that the Saab maps would only work in Saabs, not Vx. I thought they were slightly different and 'specific' to Saabs, even though they are both running Trionic 8 - if you see what I mean.

    Interested to hear your outcome!

    I think your dealer doesn`t know your engine is different than the Astra? The Astra SRi Turbo can be tech 2`d up to 200ish as it`s the same engine as the GSi with a different map, maybe he doesn`t realise this and thinks the GSi / Astra H 200 map will go into yours ?? same thing applies with the Astra H turbo, they are 170 & 200 and can be mapped up from 170.

    what bainie said - the astra H still runs the Z20 LET, and when they brought out the Astra H, they detuned it 170bhp for the sporthatch, but left it at 200 in the five door. A 2hour session on tech 2 and the sporthatches were running 200bhp, just like the five door and the Astra G.

    Knowing how stupid some dealers are, the guy probably thinks you have an Astra estate!
