  • A note to Newbies / Prospective Buyers

    Following recent threads ive stolen a few ideas and started a thread that will require a lot of input from the forum as a whole. Things to do/dont do with your Corsa to ensure it runs right Many thanks to The mods who have made it sticky

    **Disclaimer this is not official advice from Vauxhall or VXRonline for that you will need to consult the owners manual**

    LINK TO "USER GUIDE"

    >HERE<

    Many thanks to all those who have contributed to date

    I had a bit of trouble with character limits, apparently its only 10,000 per post

    Any feedback please post here and i will endeavour to include/adjust

    Cheers

                    1. Always let it warm up before giving it some beans
                    This can be monitored through the secret screen. Once the water temperature hits 95, wait a further 10 minutes before going full boost. This is to ensure that the oil temperature of booth the engine and turbo are up to temperature to prevent damage to parts.
                    The guideline 10 minutes may be longer in the winter due to cold conditions.
                    Leaving the car on idle does not count as warming up and should not be carried out unless waiting for the windscreen to de-mist as it can cause damage to the engine over time

                    link to the guide on how they can access the secret screen?

                      Please adhere to the following advisories to achieve maximum life and performance from your turbo vehicle.

                      1. We strongly advise using Optimax or other high quality, high octane fuel.

                      2. Please do not use full boost under 70 degrees water temp.

                      3. Please do not use full boost over 95 degrees water temp.



                      4. Use Milers Octane Plus or CVL, when good quality fuel is not available.



                      5. Reduce your performance to low boost on low fuel or under ¼ tank, this can, in extreeme cases cause air to enter the fuel system


                      6. Run the car for 2 minutes after high performance use


                      7. As soon as the oil turns black we advise changing.
