    Default I thought VXR Vectra were fast? :)

    Well aparently not faster than a 1.9 CDTi Astra with a DTUK CRD2 box fitted!

    Had a little play with a VXR Estate this evening (I'm assuming a 255PS as it wasn't a new one) - 3 traffic light grand-prix starts it was pretty much neck and neck every time.

    I recon over a tonne he'd have me no bother, but up to slightly over national speed limit there was nothing in it. Neither of us could get decent grip till we were doing 30-ish (1st was useless, 2nd was riding the TC then limiter, 3rd was when I started getting decent traction, 4th was my best gear).

    I'm booking a rolling road session ASAP. I highly recommend DTUK's CRD2 boxes.

    Astra's lighter and with cdti torque. No point having all that power if you cant get it down, as he said if it had gone on the vxr vec would have pulled away.

    Couldn't give you exact figures but about 30-40 bhp. 888 did the 200bhp ish cdti astra that was a nuisance to the astra vxr.

    The figure in my sig below was a standard CDTi 150 with just a 'caterman' tuning box. I would expect a DTUKbox to be around the same figures.
