    Default Astra gtc vxr

    Hi everyone I am wondering if it's worth getting a stage 1 remap for my astra gtc vxr I called a few places they said they could get around 310-320bhp which will cost me £350 will I notice much of a difference?

    Stage 1 will really only take you to 300. Remove the cats, add an air intake and you'll see 330ish

    This is dependant on how much the standard power is, it may not be 276. You will notice the change, also its the increase in torque as well.

    Don't compare figures, as these where done on different rolling roads, different cars, temps, operators

    All the maps will be around the same figures.

    you will get more power and way more torque that will hold on further up the rev range so you can hold it in gear for longer rabbid or courtenay for a safe reliable map
