    The only way is a remap or chip,tuning box only works on a common rail diesel so no cheap power for petrolheads.

    yep , if it's a petrol, get it remapped.... turbos work best, but atmo engines respond well to it as well..

    your warranty could be affected mate, unless you go to 888 as it's a recognised remap by Vauxhall. Plus 888 have a very good reputation. A Vx techie would have to have a good reason to look into the ECU settings though.

    Insurance will deffo go up too.
