    whats the difference?

    looking at an astra sri in work just now that im thinking about buying. only thing holding me back is that its only the 170bhp model. can someone tell me what the difference is between the 170bhp and the 200bhp models?

    is it just the mapping of the ecu thats different or is it running a smaller turbo?

    caught! lol

    its either this or a mint 51 plate vec gsi msd, thinkin the astra would be a more sensible altho more expensive option with house buying looming.

    I'm sure i read that its not just the map thats different... Couldnt tell you what tho!

    Remap companies also give different gains 170 to 210 and the 200 to 230.... i would imagine if the internals / turbo were the same you would get the same post remap stats.

    Defo warrants more research if its important to you.

    Was it not the 170 bhp model that is the later one?

    As they lowered it when the vxr came out as the top of the range model. They realised people werent buying the vxr when the 200 break astra was basically the same. Im sure theres another thread like this somewhere?

    no you could get the 170 bhp and 200 bhp at the same time , they lowered it to a 1.6 180 bhp when the vxr came out
