    ECU Software

    Can anybody tell me what possible benefits I would gain by having the latest software from Vauxhall loaded into my ECU. I have a 1.6 16V 98 G and as far as I know the software had never been upgraded since it was built. I have just enquired on the price which is quite cheap.
    Thanks

    Basically, Vauxhall engineers issue later versions of software due to various running problems that some cars have.

    By installing the latest software into your ECU, you should see the car run alot nicer and smoother.

    Do it mate

    I had the latest software installed in the SRi just before the AMD RR and noticed a big difference in performance

    Yeah.. I have been considering this recently, as I drove a 2004 SXI 1.6 16v and it seemed SO much smoother than my 1998 1.6 16v,

    If you can give us a rough quote Rich, would be most interesting...
