    Wink Hi Everyone

    Hi I have had my Ultra Blue Hatchback Vectra 2.0T SXI since new on November 15 2003.

    I chose to have the SXI version, rather than the SRI as I wanted a wolf in sheeps clothing effect that did not draw attention to me or my car.
    You can't see the twin exhausts from behind, as they are below the bumper and are hidden. The only givaway is the small T on the boot lid.

    I think that it is a fantastic car, I love it , but I would now like to up the performance and would like to know what other people have done and achieved, and most importantly what effect this has had on the cars drivability and economy.

    I have heard about the dongle thing that you can attach to the diagnostic
    por to reprogram the ECU.
    Do you have to leave the dongle attached all the time or can you program the ECU and them remove it?

    Any ideas or help with what can be done with this engine would be appreciated


    Many thanks

    Regards
    Steve

    Hi Steve, welcome, the dongle you are speaking about is the BSR ppc nit, there is a group buy on at the moment ...It is removed once you have done the remap, and revesable as well, though you probably don`t want to do that as your warranty will be up anyway

    Not sure what dongle thing you're referring to, but as Bainie said there is the BSR remap - this is what I have on mine. Also as he said there is a Group Buy on this at the moment.
