    Only way now is a remap mate.. can be had for around £250 nowadays. Youve done the breathing mods etc and de-cat wont make much of a difference.

    Should take you up of around 115bhp and a shed load more torque!

    If your van is the Isuzu version id stay clear of boxes and go for a re-map mate..

    Nope, wrong boxes mate. As previously said our boxes we reviewed by total vauxhall and they were more than impressed with boxes and the gains it gave. It takes about 5-10 mins to fit and no soldering required.

    Many Thanks

    Oh right, so the 1,7DTI Isuzu system from yourself is plug and play and doesnt involve any soldering?

    If so, ill buy 10 off you (at trade of course)...

    Our VPC system will work on the Vauxhall engine that uses the Bosch VP44 pump, but wont work on the Isuzu...

    Make sure youre not getting confused between the 2 engines...
