    Default BSR remap now available for Vectra VXR

    http://www.bsr-tuning.eu/product_news/29/

    Thought this may be of interest to any VXR owners. I don't know if it's also compatible with the 2.8T in other models (and Signum) i.e. non-VXR version.

    Also, I remember seeing something on the forum about the VXR having a power boost by Vx on the more recent models - can't remember what to. Again, I don't know if this remap will work on that one and give +40bhp over whatever it's producing. Easiest way I guess is to contact BSR UK to see.

    Unless SAAB use the same exact engine I wouldn't expect it too soon. When I enquired with them about the 2.8T all reference's were given as SAAB.

    The 2.8T remap, ups the SAAB engine from 230hp to 285hp. With the new MY2007 Vectra running 280hp, it's only really a gain in torque, albeit a signifigant gain but it's not switchable with the sport button and it doesn't alter the thottle response on sport which can be a pain.

    888 have a 300hp/400lbft map (on the sport button) for the 255ps VXR already - which is cheaper, it also smooths out the throttle response as well.

    I do like the idea of returning the car to standard, i.e if you sell it or similar, but I know which one I'd have ;>

    The 280ps VXR engine has had new cams installed, but this is not anything to do with performance increases, it is to bring into line the 2.8T engine to exact same specifications for all GM companies who use the engine.

    So for those 255ps owners, once the air box has been replaced for the newer one, the re-map is as beneficial as 280 owners.

    Wasn't it only the timing gears, struts and airbox that have changed?...heard nothing about the cams?
