    Default Remapped or not remapped

    HELLO ALL, I have just bought a 2005 sri cdti 150 nav which has supposed to have been remapped my a company called CELTIC TUNING to the value of 205 bhp but it feels slower than my old veccy with a caterman on, is there any way i can tell if it has been mapped, THANKYOU in advance.

    Rolling road is the only way that you're going to get any indication. Don't be surprised if it doesn't reach that claimed 205bhp BTW.

    Well you could but probably not a good idea. Nutron did it for a while on his, so have a search for all his threads to see how he got along with that.

    Why not give celtic a call? They should be able to confirm whether or not they have tuned the car.

    And chances are it probably does feel slower than with a box on, not only do the boxes give more power, but the delivery is totally different. With a box, you can really tell it's boxed, but with a remap it should feel like it's supposed to be like that.

    If you see what I mean

    if you get anything close to the 200bhp mark you wouldnt be saying it was faster with a caterman box ,

    with a 200bhp remap you are in a rocket-ship so something is a miss with the map

    Yeah, my Astra with 200hp/310lb-ft was difficult to keep on the road. Could spin up the wheels in 2nd and in 3rd on a wet road.
