    Is this normal for a phase 1 upgrade

    Had phase 1 done on the vxr at the weekend by regal and the performance is amazing however,thats when the sports button is on.
    When i turn it off for every day driving the performance has gone backwards.
    What i mean by this is its slower with sport off than before.
    I wouldnt even attempt to overtake someone

    Is it not the case that the car is in economical mode whilst the sports button is off to get the best possible MPG, then the boost is upped to get the pest possible performance whilst the sports button is on.

    That was my understanding?!?!?

    My understanding is that you should be running a normal map with the switch off, and high boost with the switch pushed.

    Mines the same, pretty sure they were detuned to improve mpg with it all off, switch on = world backwards.
