    Default What to make my car faster

    Ive got a sri 150 vectra and would like some advice. I want the best value for money option to make it faster. I heard that there is a box that plugs in in front of the gear stick.

    No mate, plugs into the fuel rail and increases the fuel pressure. Can range from about £70 for a caterman to about £300 for a spider box.http://dieseltuning.co.uk/vauxhall-diesel-tuning.html

    Is your motor petrol or deisel? if deisel you can fit a tunning box, that is a common mod on a lot of the cars on here.

    There are many options, here are some...

    air filters = 2-5bhp, £30-£150
    exhaust = 5-15bhp, £20 DIY-£1000s
    tuning boxes for fuel rail = 30+%bhp, £70-£550
    Remaps and remap boxes = 30+%bhp, £250-£570
    intercoolers = 5-10bhp, £200-stupid costs

    The remaps and remap boxes rewrite the software of the car and this would be the boxes you are on about, they are available from Regal (spit) and the other one that I forget now but there is a thread on it from recently.

    The tuning boxes for the fuel rail cause the ECU to raise fuel pressure resulting in more fuel going in and more power.

    £ for lbft, the tuning boxes can give the greatest increase but on some cars (especially those with DPF - Diesel Partical filters) they can cause problems.

    The remaps/remap boxes can also cause problems, don't get me wrong but they are developed by big companies to work with your car and problems are usually with the process of putting the software in rather than the software itself.

    It is generally precieved that remaps are the best long term solution for power increases and a must for DPF vehicles but depending on the model, many are runing tuning boxes and have been for a long time with no problems.
