    Astra H SRI-T 200PS Version?????

    I was led to believe these were being scrapped and only the 170ps version being made... was i told total bollocks because this site claims you can rent a 200ps version...???

    The 200PS turbo is still available in the 5 door and estate, but they're not putting it in the sport hatch - probably, so it won't detract from/compete with VXR sales.

    I considered the 200PS estate but I my sensible old man head kicked in.
    Stil, at least I have more torque.
    Ex Golf R32, now mk5 Astra Estate 1.9CDTi (150PS, 232ftlb) Design on fat alloys.

    It seems daft decision to me on VX's part - just think how many they would have sold to disgruntled custimers fed with waiting for the VXR

    surely a remap on the 170 will bump it up to 200? or are their mechanical diffrences?

    IIRC it's all down to software

    (waits to be proved incorrect/correct on this)

    doesnt really matter then, just upgrade the software. stupid not to sell a 200ps sport hatch imo. not everybody wants a vxr anyway

    Its exactly the same engine just the map is different, however you cant just upgrade the map with a Vauxhall map, it has to be done with an aftermarket map such as Vmax or EDS.,.... cant rememebr the Vmax figures but the EDS map gives you 235bhp....a knackered airflow meter nd shafter ABS censor, the last 2 being a FOC bonus
