    Default What power roughly

    I bought my vectra 1.9cdti in april with quite a few mods on from previous owner. My plan initially was to just use it to go up and down the motorway for a year get another year ncb and then buy something fast like a scooby, s14, rx7 etc.

    The car currently has a dtuk green tuning box, air box mod and k&n panel filter. It was rolling roaded by previous owner and produced 189bhp and 280lbft of torque which isnt to bad but i just feel with it being a heavier car i could do with a bit more power.

    So my question is, if i simply went to an exhaust place and asked them to cut the cat out and weld a straight through pipe in place, took the tuning box off and went to say mas performance for egr blank and remap then what approx figures would i be looking at achieveing and would there be much in the way of noise difference?

    I just wouldnt mind getting the car to around 210bhp and around 320lbft of torque with more progressive smoother power as the tuning box is quite agreessive, u either have no power or the full lot. Just looking online and theres a company called tuned and styled that claim a decat and their remap will see 223bhp and 324lbft but dont know if that seems a bit optimistic

    I see many astra cdti's with over 200bhp with the tuning box and around 300-320lbft of torque but a few vectras ive seen seem to produce a little less and for me its how the power is delivered. When i get a remap i would want the power to be more accessible throughout the rev range
