    Z16xe re-map/superchip

    i'm thinking about getting my z16xe astra re-maped, and was wondering if its worth it, just been on courntenays web site and the power gain is only 6bhp
    so is it worth shelling out £300 for a remap or should i save my money?

    well you get your self a exhaust and aftermarket air filter then get a chipped uk remap for 225 and you will be running 145bhp

    i had my old 1.6 remaped with a simaler setup as you've got, i would say go for it mate, it drives so much better and gets rid of those flat spots the 1600 has got.


    just my opinion though

    Has this been proven? I would not like to pay £225 to find out the car did not meet 145bhp.
