Well, we've both survived a very long trek down to Courtenays in Norfolk and have had a fabulous 2 days with Jon and the rest of the guys.
Scotty's car undergoing major surgery - minus it's turbo
Scotty's hybrid before the transplant
Scotty's shiny new hybrid fitted
The moment of truth....
...and then it's my turn
with the ECU being wiped out and reprogrammed - a very tense moment..
and thank god they both survived and were drivable to be placed outside the workshop for our final pic..
So to sum up - Scotty had a new hybrid turbo fitted and CS4 and I had a new AFM, MAP sensor and a CS3 .
Both cars were benchmarked at the same figure with 229BHP and 219llb per foot torque.
After the work had been carried out, the cars were put on the rollers again..
275.9BHP with 292.5 llbs per foot torque.
and mine after most parts had been replaced got:
254.7BHP and 273.5llb per foot torque.
These were the new Courtenay High Torque Versions of the maps and I have to say that we are both really, really pleased with the results and Courtenay's 15 years Experience of tuning Vauxhalls.
Jon did comment that he thought that the figures were conservative, as they prefer to quote it this way due to any discrepancies within other rolling roads.
We would, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone considering doing the same as us. The Staff's dedication to getting the job done is a credit to Courtenay as they worked all hours to ensure that the optimum results were achieved.
