    Cool Maptun tuning - Video of a Z20NET with 418bhp.

    Many of you will now that i decided to go the Maptun way with regards to tuning my Z20NET engine.... Saab use the same block in their 9-3 B207

    Of course there are many doubters but my talking with them to date has only increased my belief that they knew what they were talking about... despite my not acheving my expected bhp figures so far I do not doubt them, i know my engine has some boost leaks amongst other things and its up to me to find these issues unless i want to pay big money to have somebody else find and sort them; but lets remember only a person that is truly familiar with your engine will know what it is wrong. Then we have Maptun, this is their party piece, they know more about the B207 / Z20NET engine than any other tuner will dream of...

    Neo Brothers are the UK Maptun agents and they have treated me very well, all levels of my enquiries have been catered for and information has not been lacking in detail, something i am a pitha about.. So for those who have been closely following my progress I give the latest video of a 2.0T engine in the Neo Brothers race car being tuned at the Maptun Facilities in Sweden.

    Check out these facilities and be in no doubt that you will be in good hands.

    You gotta love this vid

    Your going on about a race car, what is your point ?

    How much did that race car cost ?

    They would have upgraded most of all the parts on the car compared to a road legal car

    I can see alot of people upgrading and tuning with maptune now you've posted this link :-)

    There agent in the uk does not even have a rolling road

    Sorry mate, totally pointless thread and will only go one way

    When you spend the money to get your car to 418bhp come back and bump this thread, let's make it easier 300bhp.

    I think the point is, what the engine can be capable of , not look what I can do with £200k, even if Nige gets 100BHP less than that he is on the a big winner over a stock car

    Nige, I see a where you are going wrong mate, you missed off the dustbin sized air filter , LOL,,,, look at the size of that

    I like the idea of this as i do of all the engines being taken to the extremes, it was not so long ago that the top bhp for these much lower or were you not aware of that... So this is a big jump.. I know what they have done to the car and I have seen the car.. Its unrealistic for any of us to take our daily drivers to the level unless we have serious pots of cash and no spine to handle the potholes.. Nobody seems to make nice vids of vectra/signums getting tuned and make a show it, its big shame.. so its nice to see the engine that we share with Saab really being put to work.. There are loads of astra and corsa vids and loads of support but barely any for this in comparison.. If i had the cash I would like to make a mental track day car like that and so would many of us, its hardly unrealistic its just highly impractical... It just needs to be appreciated for what it is, a seriously powerful and quick 4 cylinder engine out of a GM family car.. hell I wish i had the knowledge to do such things with cars, i wish i had the money too... maybe i could start one and hide it in the neighbours garage, no chance... cars are depreciating assets and there is finite limit of when to call it quits on the spending for tuning etc.. for most of is that threshold is quite low... Some of you have track cars and i envy the guy who has a wife that and bank balance that permits that... for now i have to drool over the new found upper limits of my engine albeit in a highly tuned guise...

    Simply proves that the 2.0T engine really is a practical alternative to a V6 whether you tune it or not, and lives up to all the claims made for it.

    A man with no eyes can clearly see that Saab knew exactly what they were doing, and had been doing for 20 years.

    the 2.3 is equally as impressive!

    To be fair, the Yanks have been tuning this block for years, and there getting 700bhp street legal, using only off the shelf GM parts. The 2.8 really has a lot of catching up to do, and I mean alot. However this is really only down to its age and its availability. If the 2.8 was fitted to a far larger market and was as old as the GM 4 pot all ally Ecotec block then I'm sure we would already be seeing far larger figures out of the V6 and showing its full potential.

    I've seen that car in the metal in Neo Brothers garage; it's road-legal car, and they used a stock 9-3 as the starting point. The main purpose of the car is to showcase the hardware that you can buy from Neo Brothers and fit to your own 9-3 (or Vauxhall), including items such as the multi-piston brake calipers. Hence, it's a very valid thread if you have a Z20NET. If someone had posted up a video of a BMW sliding around in the snow (or a mouse trapped in a glovebox, or a woman jet washing the inside of her car), no one would be asking "what's the point of the thread".
