    pointless or worth doing?

    hey guys quik question .. i have a astra coupe mk4 2.21 16v and was wondering wether there would be any point in getting it remapped , and what power gains would i be looking at ? i know its not gunna be major and i have a custom built exhaust system if tht makes a difference.

    cheers guys

    i think so i may be wrong but arent remap gains seen mainly on turbo'd cars? maybe better off spending ur cash on induction cams etc

    It can be done as Ffoeg on here has had his 2.2 remap, but obviously turbo'd cars response better to a remap and can produce better gains from it

    hey buddie, best advice ive found about this is, Do ur Induction, cams, Inlet manifold , Exhaust then go for an Remap and ull see a bigger gain in it.

    You wona slap the 2.4 inlet Manifold onto it before you get any remaps etc!
    THE STATEMENTS MADE ABOVE ARE MERELY MY OPINION AND SHOULD NOT BE INTERPRETED AS STATEMENTS OF FACT UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED

    you wont see much return on the 2.4 inlet unless there are other mods done, so I'd bin that idea for now, get the pre cat out, cat back system, sports cat, airbox mod and custom down pipe, that should do it then go for the remap and you should be looking at 15/18bhp from the map.....

    geoff has spent alot of time and money on his and its got very impressive figure but you need more that just a few bits and bobs and a map, all the little bits help,

    check out his autobiography for full spec and details
