    Default Hello! Just bought a Signum 2.0T Design

    Hiya,

    Just bought my first Vauxhall - a Signum 2.0T Design in Metallic Black. It was bought as a 'sensible' family runabout but I'm actually very impressed with it!

    Previous cars include BMW E36 320, BMW E39 528 Sport, Toyota MR2, BMW E60 530 and I've also still got a BMW E36 328 Sport.

    I only bought the Signum yesterday, but have a few questions...

    What are the tuning options? I'm hoping as it has a turbo which seems to run quite low pressure as standard it can be quite easily mapped to produce a bit more power?

    I have the Sat Nav unit, with in-dash 4CD Changer... the single CD drive (for the NAV Disc) will play CDR's but the 4CD doesn't recognise them (Load Error) - shall I try other brand CDRs or do they just not play them?

    Does any of it play MP3 files off the CDs?

    Are there any bluetooth kits which will integrate with the Sat Nav unit/screen?

    I only have the basic Air Con (no Climate Control) and the knob to control the fan speed is damaged, can these be replaced on their own?

    Any advice appreciated, I'll try and get some pics up soon but I'm sure you're all aware what an unmodified Signum looks like

    - Chris

    Mine used to play cdr's if a good brand and slow record speed was used. It won't play mp3's.

    Does the knob work?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Loads of mapping options avalable for the 2.0T generally speaking a stage 1 remap will take you from 175bhp to about 210-220bhp and 315nm. Best to get a custom map rather than a generic one. My advice would be do your homework on them and dont go for a cheapo one.

    I can personally recommend www.torqingbhp.co.uk as thats who did mine, and 16 months on I am more than happy. Not one single problem.

    Nice to see another siggy owner join up. We are defianltly growing in numbers now

    My other car. 1972 1641cc slammed beetle. On the road finally!!

    Vehicle : Vectra and a Signum

    Trim : top of the line in both

    Engine : Z18XE,Z19DTH,Z20NET

    Year : 2006

    Hi Chris, welcome to vec C.. You do have a turbo, its a Garrett GT2052S (low pressure).. It is a very tunable engine, very reliable and quite pokey. The engine code is a Z20NET, and is the same engine found in the Saab 9-3 turbo.. they call it a B207L.. later models of the engine (from late 2006) had a Mitsubishi TD04L14T turbo (high pressure), Saab had the same and called it the B207R.. The later models are more tunable because of the better turbo but as stock they are both producing about 175 - 180bhp as standard. Its easy to map it beyond 200bhp but al lot more money and tweaks will take it over 300bhp (but i would not recommend that high).

    Welcome to the fold of Signum owners, are numbers are massing nicely now

    as above pelnty of good advice given here and on my old Signum i had my 2.0T remapped by Darrel @ torquing BHP and was exceedingly happy with the resulting gains - regarding the Fan switch iirc there only on the panel but maybe you could pick one up from a breakers yard fairly cheap

    i hope this helps and enjoy your stay !
