    Default My remapped CDTI Vectra

    First thread about my Vectra to show the difference a re-map makes. Had it for around 6 months now, covered around 12k mostly on the motorway.

    Purchased the car for £1200 with 80,000 on the clock, had it cheap because it needed a little work, a pic below (although it's standard in appearance):

    DSC_0158.jpg

    The car's a 1.9 CDTI 150, 2004, manual, silver.

    When I bought it I had the cambelt changed and sorted out the following problems:

    Throttle - (resolder job)
    Inlet manifold - (usual swirl vlave problems)

    Original info: 0 - 60 = 8.8, bhp = 150, torque = 236 lb/ft

    Modifications:

    Air box mod
    Smoothed air box
    Pipercross filter
    EGR delete (2 blanking plates and software delete)
    Custome re-map
    Silicone boost pipes

    After the mentioned mods the car was a whole lot better:

    0 to 60 - 7.44 seconds
    0 to 100 - 19.78 seconds
    1/4 Mile - 15.28 seconds
    Top speed - 150 mph (on clocks, unsure of GPS value, 150 was downhill to be fair lol)
    Current BHP - 205.8 @ 4062 (average of 3 runs)
    Torque LbFt - 323 @ 2804rpm

    Highly reccomend to tune this engine, was surprised at how well the car improved. I'd also like to thank the forum, saved me a fortune with the throttle body fix and the egr blanking.

    Thanks, Matt

    where did you get the 0-60 times from?... it's very precise too!...lots here (including me) have their CDTI remapped and mine is running 193 bhp and just short of 400lb torque. But more importantly, more mpg. Gone from getting 600 - 650 up to 700 per tank before refill

    the 0 - 60 times were taken as an average of 5 runs using a gps, hence the 2 decimal places lol the dyno results were an average of 3 runs from got boost in bridgend. 400 lb of torque? thats considerably more than my runs fair play sounds like a good remap, what RPM was that may i ask? 1/4 mile times were at crail, stopped by there early june after watching bike racing at knockhill with a mate

    My car averages at 46.3mpg at the moment, which has been a slight improvement yes well worth the money
