    BHP info question

    im wondering something now after reading one of my post replys.

    a have a coupe turbo 52plate and it was chiped by superchips.co.uk, now i always thought the turbo ran 198BHP(ish) but the sheet a got when a got car is exact same as the one on webpage and it says car run's 183 standard.

    so whats going on?
    am i having a blonde moment or is i missing something

    right i have been looking into this for a while now as i was offered a superchips map for my car

    what i think is that superchips developed the map when the turbo engine was the 180ish bhp (early ones IIRC) and pass it off as a map for all Z20LET

    however we all know vauxhall updated the software on the LET twice and it now produces 200 bhp

    so i see it as they are only adding 6 bhp to the car if anything

    however i may be wrong

    I think you need a Rolling Road asap....then you can see exactly what the chip and your engine make together....

    I really wish I could make the RR meet, very keen to see what my coupé is producing being one of the early ones.

    This is why I'm thinking sod it, remap. Courtenay put the latest software on it then work their magic

    so would that mean the chip i have would do pretty much sod all then or would it be running more than 206BHP.

    that mean the chip would only be any use if car was running 183BHP standard then?

    very confusing this stuff! haha

    My local superchip dealer told me a re-map would give me an extra 34bhp.

    He said he would rr it before and after!!!
