    Astra VXR's which presented with engine and/or gearbox issues were commonly known to be sent for inspection to indentify whether the cause was down to non-approved modifications.

    I would agree it is essential to get a proper remap. I had remaps on my 2 previous Vectra 'C's, a 2.0T petrol which was mapped to 220 bhp/230 lbs torque, and a 1.9 diesel mapped to 195bhp/340 lbs torque, with no issues on either one.
    I opted for generic remaps from BSR for both, not cheap, but well worth the outlay.

    A sign of the times is that my Grand Sport 1.5T with 163bhp/184 lbs torque, is not far short of my old Vectra 2.0T with 173bhp/195 lbs torque in standard tune.
