i posted the graph above your post . 186 is a normal number yours should have that too . go talk to your tuner and tell him that he should write his own software and research the cars he works on... a 125 is a limited 150... by the way . did he remove the speed limiter or did he not see that there is one ? or... is it a box and that way . no tuning at all ? ;-) . Oh yeah , there are no other mods except a pipercross panel filter but that has little to no effect (stock on my car was 145 HP instead of the 150 it should have had) .

 

Its proper remap done with dyno runs, I guess I need to take your graphs and show it to them so he can work on mine again or may be I have to look for other tuners in England but unfortunately there are not too many who can work on chevy's at the moment.

 

I don't think 125 is limited 150 as I can't find any information over web regarding this. 

 

Any recommendations for UK tuners??

no . im sorry i dont know any uk mappers except for superchips . maybe need to give them a ring . about the 125/150 issue . they are def the same . here in belgium you can go to the chevrolet dealer and have the software of the 150 written to it and this will give you 150 hp . i will look for some proper uk tuner and proof that 125/150 are the same . ill keep in touch ;-)

Here is a link to a thread on this forum about the 125/150 issue . I can guarantee that it is 100% true . I am also on the cruze forum from Belgium/Holland and all the 125's that are remapped have the same results as the 150 remapped...

This company is recommended by BR-Performance as they can write their map file on to ECU to get 185 BHP. Need to sort some other bits too before I go for remap as throttle body needs cleaning and DPF light has come ON which won't go after auto cleaning so need to get it removed as well. One of the local garages quoted £795  to get it removed which is bit too expansive for this particular job.

 

Once sorted, I am definitely going to try them

Great news (except for the DPF then...) . Mine is removed to , cost me 350 Euros (about 300 pound , stage 2 remap included...) maybe you need to ask the autographers if they can do that ? I had everything done by BR-Performnace . Should give you around 196 HP and 440 Nm :-) . Believe me , coming from 125 HP this will be a thrill ;-)

I have already asked them, waiting for their response. Don't see any reason why they can't do it.

 

About 125 to 185+, I know how it feels man as my previous car was VW MK4 Golf 1.8T spitting 228 BHP after stage 2 map  :victory:

nothing if you keep your engine healthy by servicing at correct intervals

Well , that depends on how you use the extra power... If you keep driving it like you stole it especially when cold , than that's asking for trouble... But let me give an example . A friend of mine has a 2.2 mondeo tdci (mk3) . It has been remapped and some other mods like intercooler , cold air feed etc . from 155 to about 220 hp . Has been done at about 70.000 km's on the clock and now allmost 300.000 and still driving . Only issues were common ones for the MK3 like injectors and dual mass flywheel but this is a problem one the standard ones to (he even goes to events were there are drag races held . A great deal is also the quality of the remap . A lot of "tuners" work on the get rich fast principle and adjust the wrong or not enough parameters wich in time will cause damage (especially power boxes) . You can recognise bad remaps by the amount of soot that comes out the exhaust . This will raise EGT's and can cause problems as holes in pistons , melted vanes on turbo ... The problem these days with modern cars is that you cant notice it in the beginning because of the DPF but this will soon become a problem because they clog up...

Another examply , my mondeo MK3 Was remapped (with other mods) from 115 to 175 hp . After 2 years clutch started slipping (off course 2 weeks before drive to spain...) But then i had a solid flywheel and heavy duty clutch installed from a transit . Never had any problems with the engine . Untill i decided to install a manual boost controller . During driving one of the tubes came of resulting in no more regulating of boost and the turbo went spinning out of control with the logical effect. blown turbo. But this was my own mistake and if i did'nt instaan yhat MBC i would still be driving it today. ;-) drove the remapped car 90.000 km's and trust me , i use the force ;-) as you can see here (is consumption of the cruze) : http://www.spritmoni...ail/572319.html (the fuelings from 06/06 till 21/06 are all highway but consumption is this high because of driving to spain with roof top box at 100 mph on cruise control)

With the mondeo i even gave it shorter intervals . Every 10.000 km's new better quality oil and filters

In mine it's not great , but i always use the power lol . here u can compare between stock , stage 1 and stage 2 :

Stock : http://www.spritmoni...ail/514457.html

Stage 1 : http://www.spritmoni...ail/562114.html

Stage 2 : http://www.spritmoni...ail/572319.html

Please keep in mind that the consumption between 06/06 and 21/06 in the stage 2 is higher because whe drove to Spain and back constantly driven around 100 Mph with a roof top box.

Had a detailed conversation with Andrew @ autograph today, he advised to go for DPF removal Stage 2 tuning, . They have to remove the exhaust and then cut it open to remove the filter, then weld it back together. Will also clean throttle body and EGR valve while they are working on it. WIll cost anything between £640 - £770 and its full day job. But the end result will be 195HP with 440 Nm.  :mail:

Nice ! Same as mine then ;-) could even be more when you take in account that mine had less stock than he should have had . Oh yeah make sure to ask them to program that stupid EGR closed to . Avoids problems in the future (but they probably said they would allready ;-) . Make sure the car is on stock software when u go in , they can't map a mapped car i was told by a tuner . That said , u won't regret it , i promise ;-)
