    Default Peoples experiences with upgrading VXR's?

    Hello all,

    As a new bloke with a newly acquired VXR estate. I was wondering if I could reap the benefits of other people experience at tuning the 2.8 v6T in the VXR.

    I see the usual suspects (Regal and Courtney) but find little or no info on what's done and any nasty side effects. I've built Vauxhall for year but the old redtop XE's and LET's and find it quiet a surprise how little appears to out there

    So any info from those of you who have done bits and bobs and any do's and don't would be great. I don't suppose any companies do a warranty approved upgrade? 3 years and 60,000mile would be a bit of a loss

    Last of all anyone else find the brakes a bit shocking? Or is that just me??

    Cheers in advance,

    Jimbo (newbie)

    I'm sure "Spoons" had his VXR remapped & 6 pot brakes installed at the VXRPC try http://www.tripleeight.co.uk/ or http://www.vauxhall.co.uk/vx/vxr/htm...ce_centre.html

    As above, VXRPC will remap the 2.8T with the EDC remap (well respected). Another one to throw into the equation is BSR.
