    z18xe owners.... futher to discussions on tunability

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

    160 bhp Z18XE kit

    Just released...

    Available for all Z18XE applications:
    -Astra G
    -Astra H
    -Corsa
    -Vectra
    -Zafira

    Increases power from 120 bhp to
    160 bhp


    Software - £350
    Camshafts - £480

    so, not the best value for money ever.... but yet another way to up the power of a z18, and this time you can supposedly hit 160 for £830 (although i'm sure that won't include fitting knowing regals)


    so, who's gonna test this lot out for me then?

    they wouldn't list the prices seperately if it wasn't possible to split it i'm sure.. fitting cams without a software remap wouldn't really be good though

    yea thats fair m8.... will have to look into whats the cheaper way of going about getting that power....

    As i got 135 with just a exhaust system and the veccy C pipe (not even with the K&N fitted) then i think id prob be better off going with the remap and and cams as it SHOULD (by the books!!!) give me about 165bhp and prob cost a little less?!

    But if anyone goes for it any info would be good
