    Question Re-map on a Z20LEL

    Hi Guys, I would like to ask a question about getting a remap on my Astra SRI Turbo (170). Would Thorney do it, or do they only deal with VXR's? Just closer to me than Courtney are!
    Thanks on advance

    It says on their website that they are due for release early 2007 so i would have thought they would be sorted by now seeing as the engines basically the same as the Z20LET in the GSI and coupe turbo. I had my car remapped by Thorney over a year and a half ago.
    They took very good care of the car and sat down and talked through what i wanted and what mods i had at the start. put it on the dyno (which is very good) a few times for before and after graphs. and then they let me take it for a test drive.

    Not sure why its so hard to get the LEL engined remaped.

    Is it because of the way the software is on the MK5?

    I have the LEL engine in my MK4 Astra but on the LET management mapped to about 280-300 bhp
    The truth is always the truth even if you haven't realised it yet...
