    Default 3.2 v6 tuning

    ok people here's my first bunch of question....
    seeing as i have had nothing to do with the 3.2 engine yet can you people tell what mods can be done? like changing the oil cooler to a air to oil cooler, is there anyone that does exhaust manifolds? can the standard ecu have the immobiliser removed? does anyone like piper do high lift cams for the 3.2?

    there's probably loads of things so anything you know please tell me, thanks in advance

    lmf now do equal length stainless mainifolds for the 2.5 but i think they will fit the 3.2.
    at the end of the day all the vauxhall v6s need improved inlet and out let and uprated plugs leads and fpr

    Hello mate.

    I have a 3.2 too and looking at some mods. Someone mentioned in one of my threads that Total Vauxhall have an article out next month about 3.2 tuning so i'm holding some hope for that.

    I also looked at a remap. BSR unfortunately cannot help. Regal can but they're down in Southampton I believe so have tried Torquing BHP.

    Mite be silly but here goes......

    I was told by an ex Corsa GSI Owner/Modder that because Vauxhall import cars from EU they have restrictors in the main wiring loom. A fuse of some type that can be taken out and replaced backwards?
    He said it gave the Corsa around 30 bhp....

    Anyone have any imput on this?

    its mainly the block and heads that i will need tuning because its going to be ran on vectra b gsi inlet and ecu....its going in a nova;
    the exhaust manifolds was one of my first things to look at, i would like equal length manifolds, i'll check lmf for that one as someone mentioned it, plugs and leads will be uprated to grade 8 ngk-r's from a escort rs turbo, leads probably magnecor 8.5mm's.
    does anyone know what the small hole is for below each exhaust port? can that that be machined out to make the ports more level? i notice the cams are g's in the inlet and j's in the exhaust..... will the piper 3.0 fast road cams have more lift and duration than these?

    cheers david
