    VXR Mapping . . . .

    Obviously there will be maps available for the vxr...
    There are concerns already though.
    Dave Dempsey had his 170ps 'H' mapped with an EDS from Regal...with terrible results....blowing meters etc.

    So, who will be first to develop a saleable map ?

    can EDS get it right ?

    apparently EDS have successfully mapped the VXR. Time will tell once cars are delivered I guess, I am sure Regal/courtenay both have cars linned up to be done, but are awaiting the cars to arrive!!

    I have been told the VXR does over fuel on the top end so a remap will get some decent gains from a phase 1, seems like you boys will be having a lot of fun

    How heavy is the VXR over the Gsi?

    i did read on the courtenay sport site they are in the process of developing one but i will be waiting for others to test it out before i take the plunge
    maybe the VXR's engine will be able to handle the remap as its already running more performance and has been highly tuned by Lotus where as the sports hatch is not, can only wait and see

    Would stay well clear of the EDS map tbh, blowing matters aside, the Vmax map on the Astra GSi, where as not as powerful as that of the EDS on the Zafira was a lot better, nicer to drive and delivered the power in a usable way........stay clear of EDS IMO. Obviously if Courtenay sort one out that would be the way to go as its mapped to the car but Norfolks a long way to go.
