    Welcome !

    Regal, Courtenay, Wallace Performance all do maps. AMD has falen out of favour.
    Have a read through, and search for mapping, plenty of reading for ya !
    Although I would maybe choose somewhere close.

    Panel filter and de-restricted is a good combo....or BMC type enclosed induction thingy...for the turbo .


    Enjoy the site !

    Welcome to Astra Sport!!

    You can tune these cars, it all depends on how deep your wallet is and how fast you want to go!!

    Have a look at:-

    http://www.courtenaysport.co.uk

    http://www.regal-shop.co.uk/

    http://www.wallaceperformance.co.uk/ (although not alot mentioned about the Mk4 - may be worth contacting them if you are in Scotland.)
