    hi am considering to buy a astra turbo 2005 its the 170bhp version am just thinkin weather our not it would handle the remap my friends have the 200bhp model and they have had theres remaped an everythink is good am just woundering what the difference is between the engines when standard. not so long ago my friend had a vectra sri cdti 120bhp and he had it remaped and had nothink but problems blowin turbo every 5 mins lots of black smoke.when we had a read up about the 120bhp an the 150bhp i think the 150bhp had twin cams an the 120bhp had single cams was this the problem thanks

    170 BHP & 200 BHP BOTH hit the same power (230-240BHP) on a stage 1 map.

    They are bascilly the same engine, just VX didnt want to release a 3 door running 200bhp as it may have stoped ppl buying the vxr.

    Hope that helps.

    ph1 is fine as a standard car, although,a precat decat and sports cat will help with figures, the only issue with lel and ler is bottom end, but this wont be an issue on ph1 maps

    i thought the 170bhp and the 200bhp were different engines Z20leR and Z20leL
