    Today, I chipped my Astra!!

    I went from this....






    to this....






    The car seems smoother to drive, and I think there may be more torque between 3000 and 5000 rpm. Other than that, I think it needs to learn what fuel it has in it, and the driving style as I disconnected the battery before switching ECU's.

    Nice. Mine put out 141bhp as std, it wouldnt be interesting to see what a full exhaust and chip would do. Wipe the smile off a few red top owners faces no doubt.

    I got this one cheap.

    It was secondhand, I paid £100 for the chipped ECU and a Lexmaul manifold. The engine, flywheel, clutch, power steering pump, alternator, radiator, viper induction kit came for free.

    I would like to go back to Regal and put it on the rolling road again to see what the difference between the graphs is. But it is a 100 mile drive, plus the cost of running it again. I may wait till I get the manifold on and the full sportex system!!
