    Simple, you can over write the ECU as an Astra GSi (Go for GSi base map as the SRi turbo map is not as good in standard form), you will need to do a bit of trick Tech 2 work by changing the chassis number on the ECU to an Astra version, but it can be done.

    I did the opposite way around, I was given a spare ECU from an Astra SRi Turbo a few years back, I wanted Courtenay to put the new re-map on the spare ECU, so they re-programmed it as a Zafira then re-mapped the car.

    All depends of how well you know your dealer, it should be able to be done in just over an hour though, once you get the install finished, you should still be able to run the car as a Zafira in the ECU, then take it in to your dealer and get it re-programmed.
