    confused Vauxhall Vectra 1.9CDTI vs Honda Integra DC5 vs BMW 330d

    Vectra - 200bhp 320ft lbs 1532kg (Standard Remap)
    Integra - 220bhp 152ft lbs 1180kg (Standard)
    330d - 260bhp 400ft lbs 1540kg (Standard Remap)

    The Integra and 330d are near on exact same speed through all sorts of different rolling speed ranges, thats obvious. Can someone explain to me how my vectra is also near on the exact same speed as these 2 cars through different speed ranges as well when all I've had is a standard remap?

    My m8s are convinced I've had a stage 2 but I've just had a standard remap from angel tuning nothing else yet my car keeps up with these. Thats with the dc5 shifting through the gears in Vtec and the 330d keeping in it's max bhp range in the rpm. Originally I was convinced that their cars were underperfoming but they're not. I'm pretty certain my cars overperforming for whatever reason yet I've clocked 2500miles since the remap and not had a single mechanical issue. I'm dieing to get the car on the RR along with my m8s and see what's going on but atm I've just started to go along with the car having a stage 2.

    Only thing I can think of is my car did have a dodgey boost cable that I didn't know about and may have got the remap done while the cable was loose I can't remember. I got minced by my m8s Clio 182 up a slip road however after I sorted the cable I was a fair bit quicker. I'm not sure if the map settled in with a dodgey boost cable and obviously now I have it fixed I may be getting too much boost or whatever, I'm unsure and pretty clueless and I can't think of any other reason for this.

    I haven't done a 0-60 but I'm pretty sure I'm going to be looking at under 7 seconds which shouldn't be the case from a standard remap. The car is completley standard when I bought it as it was owned by HSBC and then my friend had it for 9000miles for his buisness and I know he didn't do anything to it either.

    You also need to take into account gearing, final drives, and driver technique

    Therefore you also need to compare the 0-60 and 30-50, before and after

    I am with Nutron on this the 330d is a very serious motor as it has a full litre engine capacity over the Vectra, but it is extremely impressive to be on the same plain as these as cars as the Vectra is from a different classification of car etc.

    A mapped 335d will eat a m3 so a mapped 330d should laugh at aveccy

    No way in the world down a strip would you match a 330d not a chance.

    A standard 3 series 320d will do 0-60 in around 8.1-8.4 seconds and preface 150 book speed is 9.1. I had a 120 d (177) book speed 7.6 secs to 60, and a 123d book speed (7 secs) to 60. once remaped my 123d was scaring type rs with ease.

    Remap these engines and I would be shocked if a mapped veccy can match the rear wheel driv BMW.

    DC5 however is a different story. I was big into Jap cars for two years and these cars are great once in vtech but useless out of it. I would however imagine that once you get rolling down the road the lack of torque in the vtech will tell.

    Was the same in my type R. From standstill to 60 it was rappid, however once you get to the higher speeds I found it lacking in the trq dept badly. Motorways were a nightmare as planting your foot at 70 mph in 6th saw 18 wheelers drive past you. However drop it into thrid and you hit warp drive.

    I disagree and think he does stand a chance.

    I've raced a 335D remapped to 350 BHP and 550Lb/ft at Santa Pod and it beat me hands down against my remapped VXR with 305 BHP and 389 Lb/ft

    However, once past 60 mph the difference became less noticeable and he was only slightly pulling away... so all the ground was made from a standing start, which is why it was a complete beating.

    Point being he had 161 Lb/ft more and 45 BHP more, rear wheel drive and automatic super fast gear changes but at higher speeds it became less noticeable... so on the move point to point I could probably keep up and not disgrace myself to badly. I can certainly outbrake him !

    So on the move, I can quite believe he would keep up with 200bhp 320ft lbs and longer gears

    Nope, but will be at the Stratford Raceway in April 2011... hopefully with Stage III fitted

    It will be my first attempt at the 1/4 mile since 2009, so should be entertaining trying to control the wheelspin ... and not destroy my standard clutch

    I'll most likely be going to Santa Pod this year at some point as well

    If the output figures are accurate for the bmw, can't see how any 1.9CDTI could live with that. And yes - got a goodun myself and they are quick when tuned, but 260bhp/400lb quick... hmm :/
    obviously the honda wouldn't be any quicker in the mid range though - slower than a 1.9 until it winds itself up.
