Vauxhall VXR Tuning Guide
Your Vauxhall VXR tuning tips below:
The VXR represents vauxhalls power tuning division and cars with the VXR badge have been uprated. They typically have stiffer suspension and have been lowered a little and also receive power upgrades.
There are some notable VXR engines out there and we are big fans of the 2.0 Turbo unit which can with a simple remap yield an extra 30-40% power gain.
Ideally on a turbo engine for maximum power gains you will need to have uprated the intercooler, changed the turbo internals or fitted a larger turbo and wastegate.
Brake upgrades should be considered and we recommend a big brake conversion kit or at the very least some fast road pads. Be wary of competition pads as these need to be quite warm to be effective and this is not really safe for domestic road use where the pads are cold most of the time.
Tyre choice also makes a big difference and we really rate the Eagle F1's, Proxies and sport tyres with directional tread patterns.
