    HSV Astra Turbo?

    Hi,

    A question more for the aussies out there... Was just flicking through the latest Motor mag and read with interest that HSV are apparently offering an 'easy' 170kw out of the Astra Turbo with some exhaust mods. Any one heard anymore about this!? ... my local Holden dealer is as helpful as ever ... :roll:

    Yeah would make it a bit more fun! Test drove one last week and while it was quickish could certainly do with a bit more in the kw department. Certainly my pick out of the current breed of 'hot' hatches though ...

    Highly doubt it coz I know HSV doesn't want to get into the small engine business and focus solely on the big block V8... They don't even do anything for the 3.8L V6...

    And Holden doesn't like Irmscher bits coz a) they didn't do enough testing on the parts and b) Irmscher were charging an arm and a leg to Holden for the goodies. So you won't see any HSV Astra... I am 95% sure of that...
