    VXR turbo ordered

    Ok

    I have ordered a VXR turbo, Injectors, AFM and pipework.

    Can Vauxhall flash my OE ecu to get the optimum power out of this? Looking at oil pressure mods so I dont blow another turbo too

    basically the answer is no vauxhall will only update your ecu and still wont run the injectors etc and you wont get any more power it needs a re map from the likes of courtnay and aldo you wont be able to fit the injectors til you get the re map done as engine light will be on as wont recognise the injectors as for the turbo that be ok as std ecu will run that no probs

    echo that.

    you def want an oil change and oil filter.

    remember to prime the turbo up before you fire it too!

    you need a remap which takes your new VXR AFM into account!

    Ok

    Thanks for the info

    I cant go to courtenay its like 500miles away

    I can go to Wallace Performance which is still 140miles away.

    Am I Missing anything off my list?

    Oil+Filter change was always going to get done anyway. and a new timing belt for good measure

    Dap are in HUDDERSFIELD which do EDS maps but is still
    400miles which quite far away from u all the way up there.
    If you don't mind without the car for a couple of days Regal will remap your ECU if you send it to them they are normally quick to return too like next day delivery.

    How much do they charge to remap it if I send off the Ecu?

    I'll try giving them a call with a spec list and see what they say
