    Default Irmscher tuning box for 1.9cdti 150?!?!

    Has anyone got one of these fitted to their car?? i am interested to know the sort of figures it gives when fitted? I know they are expensive for what they do, but they dont give any complications with warrenty as they are a dealer supported extra.... just want any info anyone has on it really?!

    Apparently all that they are is a Powerklick box,rebadged and set on a low unadjustable map.Obvious advantage to anyone whose car is still under warranty,but at a hefty price tag!

    25 hp and 40 Nm extra but they don't do them anymore. They are out of production and owners could have a refund last year because there is no longer warrenty from Irmscher;
    since last year they are only available for Z19DT engines with DPF: http://www.irmscher.de/abe/de/7_85_06_006.pdf.

    Definitely not a Powerklick box! And the wiring loom pics and installation pics tells me that it's a damn sight more sophisticated than any box I've ever seen before!

    I own the box for the 2.2 DTI. Easy installation, good performance (from 125 to 150 hp, from 280 to 330 Nm).
    I think they are producted by Hopa, a german company, and rebadged.
    Look at their website, the boxes are the same!

    if it helps mate i had a cr1 tuning box on my last car (150cdti) and on standard setting (18 clicks) i got 163 bhp at the wheels at a second hand cost of £100! diesel tuning is an absolute bargain in my books

    Do they cause damage to the engine or what?!?! does vauxhall still recognise them or will they also invalidate warrenty now?

    well i can get the irmscher one for a couple of hundred notes from a friend of a friend of a friend.... if you catch my drift, just thought its not much more considering it wont invalidate my warrenty.

    I thought there were too much problems with the DPF... if your car has no DPF and if you are sure it is the right box for your engine, you could give it a try... However warrenty is (was?) only valid if installed by a dealer, and correct fitment is not so easy on a Vectra... look on the instructions above (pic 16)
