    Default Angel Tuning

    This has been decussed on the petrol side of tuning.... As they do diesels too, thought it might be use to some of you...

    As a subscriber of Auto Italia magazine, they have quiet a few articles on Angel tuning all of it good.

    From what I have read on here BSR is a top product, which can be unplugged at any time for warranty work..

    But as stated above if your 20T is out of warranty then what does it matter if you can’t unplug it….

    Myself I would go for the Angel Tuning option, as my 20T is no longer in warranty.

    Just don't forget to do the airbox mod.

    id never pay that sort of money for a remap and with no rolling road to back it up

    iv driven there maps and seam very slow on the up take

    mine only had 167bhp at the time and mine smashed there so called 195bhp vectra away

    figures are the be all
    http://www.ecu-evolution.co.uk/tuning.html at its £250
    red-dot about £280 and they will do you a befor and after rolling road

    so £395 without a rolling road to is just to dame much unless if you do rolling road it and it doesnt pull the number they give you your money back

    What about BSR there even more expensive and still without a rolling road.. there still rated..

    Maybe you had a bad run with them still don't mean there bad...

    Eh?!! If anything they've always been on the conservative side.

    Are we talking about the same company here? Have a look on the forum for other members' feedback on them. Big Pete to name just one recent customer, along with myself obviously.

    And myself as well, have just installed the BSR remap and the results are great, I haven't driven it to it's full potential yet but the difference is huge. The figures have been proven to be conservative as D said so I either you're getting companies confused or talking b011ocks.

    Seconded. You only have to do comparison runs standard and re-mapped to feel the difference in power and torque. If what Nutron says is true then BSR are telling porkies to their other customers too (Ford, Volvo, the entire VAG group, Saab, Cadillac et al). Their PPC product does exactly what is says on the tin, so to speak, if not more. No gimmicks, just more grunt

    When you've got 150 bhp,185 or 195 bhp feel very much the same when you've put on a box or had a remap.I would imagine that anything that messes about with your ECU internals where you don't have access to a rolling road is going to be,for the sake of reputation and reliability,a bit on the conservative side.

    The "Caterman" box also does this and for a fraction of the cost.This unit is also non-adjustable and therefore also probably is a little on the conservative side as recent rolling road results have bourne out.And I wouldn't rely on any figures that I got where they used their own rolling road to 'sell' their map.Rolling roads are not tamper proof!
