    nice find, not bad gains either: GAINS FROM 145bhp TO 161bhp

    I might be interested in this aswell! Anyone know if it would definately be suited to the coupe 2.2?

    Most Z22SE engines will put out in the region or 155bhp standard. Gaining huge amounts of power solely with a remap on a N/A petrol car is unlikely. The Superchips Website show a gain of UPTO 10bhp. With every car off the production line being different due to manufacturing tolerances you may only gain 2bhp on standard or you might get the 10 brake claimed. Big gamble with alot of money. Ask around different suppliers and see what they claim they can do for you but dont expect miracles.

    Don't just look at bhp! If the map drives better on the road then its worth it as far as im concerned. Every looksone at bhp as the only thing a remap can give you.

    Scott,
    Have a word with Chris and he'll go through what gains you'll expect.
