  • emissions light?

    First off i would like to say hi,

    my name is luke, i have had my vxr for 2 weeks and loving it. I used to work for vauxhall as a tech but now work for saab, yesterday i put my old pre cat replacement pipe and sports cat off my old gsi onto the vxr, all was fine but after about 50 miles the emmisions light came on, i disconneted the battery and it has now stayed off. Anyone else had this problem? Also since fitting i can hear the turbo spool up alot more than i did with the gsi (had same turbo on) is this normal?

    cheers

    luke high.

    Have you put the TECH2 on as you know SAAB is VXL.

    As for the turbos was the GSi std if so the turbos are different.

      How many cells is is the cat, as I understood that 100 cells don't work very well on the Astra.

        Hi,

        unfortunatly our tech 2 doesnt recognise vauxhall, have tried using the generic scan tool but no luck, the turbo on my gsi was a vxr turbo as i put it on. it is a miltek pre cat replacement and a courtenay 200cpi sport cat.

        cheers

            yes i know i used to work for vauxhall, it was the astra vxr turbo forget the part no now, i have fitted 2 to my old car due to the first one letting go. either way it doesnt matter about the old car as i have a problem with the new car and the emissions light.

            cheers luke
