Re: 1.0 Turbo Remap

EDS.. That's the people that sell you some hardware to connect your PC and OBD-II connector and then you get access to various tuning files and can change them whenever "needed" right.

Re: Surprise features

I took delivery of my new Astra 1.4t in March 2019. Almost one year of ownership! (And almost 14,000 miles too. Boy do I love driving.)

Re: Quick question about my engine code

Yeah and per someone on here the other day, the B16DTU is also 110 HP, and the difference should be that the DTE has Stop/Start and the DTU does not.

Re: Quick question about my engine code

Should be the B16DTE if 110 HP

The 136 HP is the B16DTH

I have the 110HP and it's engine code is "B16DTE Opt"

Dont know what the "opt" means but maybe "optimized"....Not sure what it is optimized, compared to, though :)
