    Default Lurker breaking cover

    Hi all,

    Been lurking on this site for ages so thought it's about time I popped my head up and introduced myself..

    My name's Chris and I drive a black 55 plate 2.8 V6 Turbo Elite with auto box, since I got it it's been remapped by VXRPC, had KW springs and a Milltek cat-back exhaust fitted.

    I love this site, packed with great info, hopefully I can contribute a little too, I've been driving Vectra's for a while, my first was a vectra b 1.8 club, then I got a C 2.2 SRi.

    I'll post some pics up of mine in the pictures section, my car is a bit of a work in progress as I'm trying to VXR it gradually.


    Looking forward to chatting to you all!

    You own that and you've been lurking?!! Shame on you!!

    How did the remap go BTW at VXRPC - any problems or straight in?

    Thanks guys.. Yeah I know! shame on me!

    The remap went fine and to be honest I wasn't even aware at the time there could be any problems, it took about 2 hours and the difference was quite startling! the Elite arrived with 235ps and left with 300ps, the journey home was fun to say the least.

    Pics are now up in the pics section

    Good to hear - that's why I asked. There's been 'reports' of the 2.8T having problems being remapped - yours is the second on the site that I've aware of being remapped (the other being via BSR) and no problems with either.

    I bet!! Very nice increase!! The 2.8T is definitely a very high contender as my next engine (remapped vis BSR, or maybe VXRPC) - whether it's in a Signum or VXR estate is as yet undecided!

    The 2.8 is great, bags of torque, the remap I had works off the sports button, you get a nice increase to 255 with the button off, push it and you get the whole lot! The pull it has in 6th gear is amazing, it's all too easy to be going over the limit without even realising.
