    Who`s had remaps?

    Looking at getting mine done next month! Was s wondering if anyone has before and after rolling road tests to prove the BHP/TRQ increase, and if so what were the gains? Is a 15BHP gain a little optamistic on a 2.2 16v?

    I think AmD battled with Diddy's 2.2 for ages trying to get gains, thing is on a normally aspirated motor, what do you increase without hardware?

    I think they got somewhere in the region of 10-15bhp, personally I'd sepnd the money elsewhere

    For £200ish what else can you buy that will give you that sort of increase? Dbilas Flowtec manifold is over a grand, exhaust manifold and sports cat around £600-800. It's well known the Vx down tuned the engines on the Astras to meet emissions tests in the US, a remap should in theory give you the car it should have been, IMO it's a worthwhile mod. However if your intending to fit anything to the engine like the airbox mod, exhaust etc do it before the remap to get the best benifits.

    Air box mods, filter and cat back exhaust are all fitted and i dont plan anymore mods appart from the remap, there is a guy on www.z22se.co.uk that only gained around 2-3 BHP from a remap, so im not sure if to go ahead or not!

    Regal!!!! His mods are, cat back system, 3 pipe mod (not sure what that is) pre cat removed, K&N panel filter, before the map it was reading 159.8 bhp and after it was 162.8 bhp. Both readings were on the same rollers! 2.2 16v are around 145 bhp as standard so his was 159 bhp with mods then 162.8 bhp after the remap!
