    Vehicle : Opel Signum

    Trim : Sport

    Engine : 3.0 CDTI

    Year : 12/03

    Default 0-60mph or 0-62mph runs

    Ever tried this guys?

    I was very surprised to see our Signum 2.2DTi Auto 112k perform so well compared to the data released by Opel. Into D and kickdown immediately.
    I managed to do a 0-62mph in 11.07s (according to the GPS thingy my friend lent me), that's more than a second off the time set by Opel (12.2s)! I still have to clean the EGR and finish the throttle body jobby, then we'll see if it can do better


    Well chuffed!

    I don't think my Signum would do that well in a 0-60 run. I've had it remapped to 220 bhp, but full power isn't available in 1st or 2nd gear - I don't know whether that's to protect the gearbox or to avoid losing traction. It's in 3rd gear onwards that it goes ballistic.

    Same goes for my remapped 2.0T petrol. In my case the BSR remap has cut the power in 1st and 2nd gear presumably to protect the gear box, and it takes off in 3rd. Full power is also not available when the engine is cold.
