    Default Removeable Tuning Map 2.0CDTI

    Hi, new here so this is my first post. Just bought my 1st vectra and I want to remap it for a bit more oomph. I have 1 years warranty so I thought I'd go for software that can be taken off again. From reading this forum there seem to be 2 of these, BSR and Celtic.

    BSR - 184bhp - £550
    Celtic - 205bhp - £450
    both with boxes that allow you to remap the engine and set it back to standard over and over.

    Is this a no-brainer - Celtic at £100 less for more bhp or are there any pitfalls?
    Thanks.

    I have a BSR and it seems to work as it says on the tin. Not had a rolling road test so don't know if it gives the advertised 184bhp but it seems a lot quicker. Not had it long so can't say if there are any problems switching the map back and forwards a lot but I've tried it and it seems to work OK.

    I hadn't heard of the Celtic one when I got mine so didn't look into it

    Thanks.
    Bsr's figures always tend to be a bit conservative...
    & tbh...
    I think Celtic's are a bit optimistic...

    Your car is 2004 registered which suggests it's a 2.0DTI. BSR don't do remaps for the DTI's. Only for the more tunable 1.9CDTI's.

    Yes, could be, especially on a '54' plate. The fact that his profile says it's a 'Life' and not an earlier 'LS' would also suggest it could be an early 1.9CDTI.

    Oops! I'm a bit old-fashioned and think of cars as being 1.6, 2.0 etc. Of course it's a 1900cc CDTI but if I'm asked I always say its a 2-litre. It's a city car so it's only done around 17000 miles to date in getting on for 4 years!

    I notice that most of the remaps talk about around 185bhp so can I take it that the Celtic one is a bit exaggerated as dh.dti nearly says? Still it's a lot cheaper so does it make sense? Anyone actually got one?

    Being a N/A petrol owner I personally don't have any map as its pretty pointless on a N/A. But if there's one thing that Ive learnt about mapping the CDTI whether its on here or the Astra guys its that you must take a pinch of salt with all these maps that offer near the 200bhp mark, even by one of the most well known VX tuners. I'd put my money on the fact that the Celtic map would find it hard to get to the 190 mark on a properly calibrated and independent RR. But on the other hand I have heard nothing but good reports about the BSR product, with RR figures showing above there quoets.

    I have just had a Regal Remap done and opted for the extra gear to remove or upgrade etc. So far I am very impressed and as for the BHP, I had 2 options which was 190 with loads of torque or 200 with less torque and I opted for the 200bhp. It cost me £392 all at but that was a very special deal from MPG
