Superchips Ltd, the world’s leading high performance ECU remapping specialist, can now make the rapid 280 PS Vauxhall Astra GTC VXR even hotter in a matter of minutes using the firm’s market-leading Bluefin handset.
Following an extensive assessment of the Astra’s Delco engine management system, Superchips’ technicians identified potential for performance enhancements within the VXR’s 1998 cc, direct-injection turbocharged motor. A combination of in-house dyno work and real-world road testing has resulted in a ‘Stage 1’ ECU remap that delivers impressive punch, adding 23 bhp at 5093 rpm, plus an extra 61 Nm of torque while retaining all GM factory failsafes.
On the road this translates into an even sharper, even more exciting drive, with a crisper throttle response allied to greater urgency across the rev range, making the Astra GTC VXR feel even more willing than before, potentially allowing the hot Vauxhall to better its already impressive 5.8 second 0-60 mph dash time.
And it’s easy to realise the benefits of a Superchips ECU remap on the Astra GTC VXR, courtesy of the Bluefin ‘Plug-In and Go’ DIY programming handset, which allows customers to transform their car’s performance in a matter of minutes. No technical skills are required and the original factory ECU remap is stored on the Bluefin handset, enabling Astra GTC VXR owners to revert to standard settings at any time, should they so wish.
