    Default Extra BHP

    I'm looking to gain an extra 25 - 30 BHP without spending a fortune, I'm lead to believe a ECU remap would do this and is affordable but is there any other way?

    I have a Vectra 2004 2.2 DTI, am I right in saying its currently 125BHP?

    driving it I wouldnt say it was 147BHP and I found this:

    http://www.parkers.co.uk/cars/specs/...px?deriv=22829

    Looks like its 123BHP which is pretty pony for a 2.2 DTI

    Surely it can produce more?

    130bhp from the V6 doesn't sound right
