    i notice on courts sport that when compair a meriva with a pre cat and re map to a corsa with a stage 2 theire is very little difference

    my question is could i go pre cat leave rest exhaust as it is and get a intercoler fitted then re map?

    woul di still get a good gain or would i need full exhaust 1st?


    cheers

    You would still get good gains but wouldnt necc be able to run a stage 3 set-up (as you wouldnt have a turbo back exhaust)

          Remap with Downpipe

          You would need to get some custom software made up, I had to do the same with my Astra.. Up until about a month ago no tuning companies made any software for Stage 2 on the 1.9cdti so when I had my Downpipe & Intercooler/Hardpipes fitted I went up to 'Red dot' and had a custom software written to get the most out of the Intercooler.

          You can do the same no problem with just a downpipe and intercooler.

          There are two places I know of that will custom make you software which are:

          -Reddot Racing
          -A&M Conversions

          Hope that helps

            corsa stage 2 = full exhaust and remap
            cost £1770
            222 bhp
            234 torque

            meriva stage 1.5 = pre cat and re map
            cost £760
            220 bhp
            252 torque




            crazy but for over £1000 less you get 18 more torque and 2 bhp less ..


            thats why im thinking go str8 for the intercooler

                  I can imagine mate.

                  Instead of custom have you seen the EDS one? And would a corsa IC fit the merv?
