1.0 Turbo Sting R Tuning

Post by NoahMiddleton » Wed May 06, 2020 2:27 am

I have recently got a 2015 Corsa Sting R 1.0 and have been looking at getting an ECU stage 1 remap. I have come across a couple of websites saying that it can get 190hp from the original 115hp and I'm not sure if they can or not. The link for one of the sites is below:

https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/vaux ... erformance

Has anyone managed to get that much from the remap?

Also I know my gearbox can only handle a certain amount of torque before it starts to do lots of damage and the remap is saying it will have 210nm of torque. Is this within the limits mine can handle?

Cheers.

Another 75 hp sounds a little optimistic without some serious mods like injectors etc...

Remember these engines are known for Piston failure so i wouldn't want to stress it anymore than what it is now...

That was my assumption I figured the 130hp was more viable and it doesn’t seem worth it for 15hp gain.

Are there any performance mods you think I can do to it at all that won’t cost a fortune? I’ve been told to get a new air filter but it will only add 3-5hp max.

Utter rubbish

Can't get 190hp from this engine

The 1.4T on a two stage remap can get up to 176bhp max

As I thought, that wasn’t the only website as well stating they can get 190hp from the 1.0T engine... Have a feeling other people will have bought it without realising it won’t get that kind of power.

The link directs to some H7 bulbs? :lol:

The 1.0T usually makes between 130-140 bhp with a stage 1 remap. That is for both the 90 and the 115 bhp versions.

That is without doubt fake. As i said, they only make between 130 and 140bhp and 230-240NM.

Here is a facebook link to an english vauxhall specialist
