    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : 3.0 V6 CDTI

    Year : 2007

    Default 3.0 V6 Remap?

    I know remapping/boxing the Z30DT is a no-no but does anyone provide a DPF/EGR removal service? It would be good to get this done in the software as opposed to just removing the inards of the DPF and partially blanking the EGR.
    Don't get me wrong, if I could get the car remapped to provide any power benefits without risking killing anything I would.

    Mark,
    That number would be good.
    Winnie,
    I just sent an e-mail to MAS to see what they can do and/or recommend.
    Which ever I decide to use, I will make sure they know who recommended me.

    I think you can get tuning boxes for them as well from various companies but if you are getting the software done for the dpf etc then prob worth getting a re map if whatever company you choose can do that.

    Diesel particle filter, every so often the system will carry out a 'regeneration' of the DPF, in other words it burns any crap that is in the DPF, if you do a lot of short journeys then that can be alot of crap.

    Graeme,
    I've seen the boxes, I was tempted to get one of DTUK ones but, all it does is fool the system to increase fuel pressure, with a remap, if done correctly shouldn't really over stress the pump like the boxes would.

    The only box I would personally put on a 3.0CDTi would be the Steinbauer one similar to what I have fitted to mine. It doesn't increase fuel pressure, it simply alters the timing. Wouldn't be keen to do much to a V6cdti though as they are pretty sensitive cars

    I have a DTUK CRD2 on mine have done for 35k miles with no problems.

    I have mine on the lowest map at -10% and it transforms the engine. Loads more low down grunt and plenty more mid range, id estimate +20-30BHP. In steady state driving (ie at 70) the fuel economy is slightly better too although you don't notice it too much as you tend to have a heavier right foot.

    As above though, only do it if you can stomach the potential for big repairs. I imagine the DMF and clucth must take a bashing, but you have to drive with a bit of mechanical sympathy, ie no burn outs / clutch dropping from standing start when at full torque, only applying full throttle when fully in gear.. I tried it on map 2 out of 4 and the power was too much for the car, the torque steer was insane even at mid pedal.

    Oh and it will also make the car smoke quite a bit. When my box comes off for MOT the car feels a bit limp but the smoking stops.
