    confused Ppc Tuning

    Really thinking about the PPC upgrade for my 2.8 v6 vectra, but really wanna know what I'm getting my self into.
    Has anyone done it on this engine yet, my engine is a z28net the same as the vxr but is in a vectra elite, its running z28nel software at the moment from the factory, how easy is it to upgrade?
    Any advice gratefully received, can it mess up my ecu ?? Thats the only thing that scares me?

    the REAL benefit of using the BSR PPC is that if it detects a fault or can't read/remap your ECU it'll stop itself BEFORE it does any harm...other tuners who write directly to the ECU have experienced problems, but the BSR is a well tested bit of kit with good backup and if there is a fault they guys at BSR can alter the mapping on the PPC via the internet if needsbe..

    for the money you can't go wrong.. it's not the cheapest but it is one of the best..

    Just read now that you got a pipercross filter? Do you have any details on the drilling you did on the air box?? I also have the 230bhp engine in my vectra elite 169kw on the door sticker, If you do get the ppc upgrade would you let me know how ya get on as I really wanna go for it but im a little scared of messing up the ecu

    right, first off.. my 2.8T is a work barge so it's not been mapped yet..

    the 280 airbox is drilled with a 40mm hole in one edge.. for the price, i'd swap to a factory 280 airbox....The best deals around on PPC's are from Steve at LMF.. call him and ask him what he can do for you ( don't forget to mention this site. )

    It isn't for the 2.8, but a lot of us have done it with the 2.0T and have been over the moon.

    Here's my review after getting stage 1. This should give you the push

    You dont get the filter in UK kits for some strange reason.

    I loved the map on my auto diesel and trust me it makes a great difference.

    Model Description
    Opel Vectra 2.8T V6 230Hp - Stage 1
    Product Information
    Power & Torque:
    Orig: 230Hp / 330Nm
    Stage 1: 285Hp / 480Nm
    Measured by BSR
