    Default Howdoo!!

    hello! thought id introduce myself, ive just bought an o6 vectra sri 2.0 Turbo with xpack in panacotta(off silver). just wondered if anyone has any tuning tips other than the standard bsr software update. has anyone tried altering the throttle body or intercooler size or upgrading the turbo. there doesnt seem to be a lot of tuning choice for this model. any ideas would be great. ta!

    As you've said, BSR is practically the 'standard' for this engine. There are others that will tune it, some with bigger claims than they can back up, but given my experience of BSR, and all the feedback of the other guys who've also gone for it, the BSR, IMO, is a no-brainer. Tried, trusted and delivers the goods.

    Not sure what other TB you'd put in it's place? People have talked about upgrading the turbo but you'd need to upgrade other things like the software or else you'll have a very laggy engine. The BSR Stage 4 (not yet available in the UK) involved a different turbo.
