    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Here's all the Maptun info for the standard tunes that Neo Brothers do. Shows the necessary hardware for each stage. I'm currently running their stage 3 software (which is actually the 4th stage they offer as they do a 1 and 1+) after my new turbo upgrade. That's rated at 240bhp / 350nm and I can tell you from experience it pulls like a damn train. There's a lot of guys on here running Maptun now, although Nige is your main man for info on the higher power levels as his is running around 285bhp ish at the moment I think.

    The Maptun tune is an expensive road to start down initially, but gives a lot more flexibility as you move up the tunes if you decide to. The initial map costs around £620 odd (might be more now I'm not sure), but you get a PPC "Maptuner" as part of that. Further updates to higher levels cost £150 ish so you can just add the necessary hardware upgrades, phone up, pay for the map upgrade, plug your Maptuner into the internet and download the new map and have it on the car in minutes.

    Damo hi mate it's Adam we had our exhaust done same day at MIJ.

    Im running the 240 bhp package from Maptun and it still makes me laugh when I press the loud button. Very rarely get enough road to push it hard but it's flies. I been off here a while though.

    He upgraded his injectors to 381cc which is an easy job, fitted the bigger Mitsubishi TD04L14T turbo and had a remap to make it all work.

    For the 240bhp do you need to have a stainless exhaust and the 3" downpipe? Cannot mind haha..

    Not a 3inch downpipe and sportcat for the stage 4, a sports exhaust of sorts yes.

    Steven, i have just reread that Maptun link and it seems things have changed a bit since i last looked at it.. The stages are different now. What they now call a stage 4 does indeed have the DP and the turbo, when i started out on this game the stage 3 was bigger injectors, 4 was the td04l14t turbo.

    My tune level does not exist on the vectra line, none of them did back then as I was using the Saab 9-3SS tuning stages. I am using the Saab 9-3SS stage 5 tune at the moment, I still tend to refer to the saab levels and not the vectra levels hence my confusion on the info i gave above
