    Talking I'm back from VXR PC

    Well what an amazing day I had on Saturday. Left the house with my brother at 6am and arrived at VXRPC for about 9:30am to be met by Tony Pilcher (what a fantastic chap he is - never stopped asking questions).

    Before he took the Zafira away for its remap and new hoses he showed us round 2 lovely cars in the car park - Astra and Vectra VXR.

    The Astra had Stage 1 remap and carbon fibre extras:


    The Vectra was the 340bhp beast:


    Then the Zafira was taken away for its new presents. First the VXR Blue Silicone Hose Kit:


    and then the Stage 1 Remap:




    It all took about 2 hours with Tony getting fresh updates from the computer and playing around with the different settings for Sports Button On and OFF.

    We went for a test run and he pushed the car to the limit and me to mine and the final figures came out at:

    Rev Limit - WAS 6000 NOW 7000
    BHP without Sport Button - WAS 236 NOW 250 + Improved MPG
    BHP with Sport Button - 275BHP

    I was blown away with the results and of course Tony said it will get better. So after a chat and cup of coffee we had a tour of the site. Got to see the Vectra VXR they are racing in 2 weeks before its been lauched to the press but Tony said he would kill me if I put pictures up of it before Tuesday - It looks amazing though.









    And to make the day even more special I got a sticker - No 78 (but only the 3rd Zafira VXR)

    It can be achieved with a remap plus a slightly bigger turbo on a standard VXR.

    340 is about as far as they want to go with the front wheel drive setup.
