After a spate of arguing with vaux about the breakdown of my original turbo, and there £1200+ original quote to fix it.... I booked it in at Courtenays for a vxr turbo and remap.
The results arent too bad, given its a totally standard car + vxr and the stage 1 map and bits, running commonal garden jungle juice.
Torque is essentially a flat 250ft/lb after 2.8krpm, and
230bhp even at 5.6krpm.
The overall driving result is impressive, the performance and pickup in 3rd gear feels very similar to what 2nd used to be, although putting your foot down with it being wrong wheel drive does really unbalance the car.
The only real problem with it is the traction control, in second gear with your foot down the instant the turbo spools up in any road conditions the wheels just spin, then the traction contol throttles and you then dont get any real power back on the road till past the peak power point.
Money well spent.
