    Problems with chip to my Z20LET..

    Me and my friend Henrik have both decided to upgrade ours OPC 2003 (we both have one)years model with a "software-ugrade"from a company called TMC here in Sweden.
    http://www.tmchiptuning.com/index.php?id=47

    As you can see at the bottom of the page they also has a contact in London.
    Anyway.Last Saturday we both drove down to them but they said that they couldnt do our cars because we both had Trionic 8 and NOT Bosh in our cars.... (what do you call the system in English?)

    They had never seen an Opel with Trionic 8 in it they said.They contacted their contact in England who sell them their software and he said that we must have Saab engine in our cars....................

    Saab use Trionic 8 in their latest 9-3 model.Well,sure...we said,no way in hell...The English guy promised to send over software for the Saab asap and then TMC will test it on their Saab 9-3 and if it work ok on that car it will work ok with ours they say...

    Hmm...Does anyone of you have any info?What system is it in ours Zafira A OPC 2003 with Z20LET????..

    Bosh,Trionic 8 or even Motronic!??
    The upgrade will give us +35-46bhp and +95Nm.

    The Motronic System was developed by Bosch saying that most systems on every car was developed by Bosch anyway. I don't know the history with your cars, did you have it from new?? If so and you haven't changed Engine or ECU then i would go to another tuner mate, If you guys have not got Saab engines getting the remap from these guys is a sure fire way of kissing goodbye to your engine
