    NOOBIE - Astra Turbo 1/4 times

    Hey all, im new here, from Australia. Holden have recently released the Astra SRi Turbo hatch down here (yay!) and im just wondering if anyone has run one down the 1/4 mile and what times etc they got!?

    Currently i have a black 02 5 door CD hatch (1.8L). im very happy with it, but hopefully soon (have to convince the fiancé) we will trade up to a turbo

    If anyone has any info on modifications/power upgrades that would be great too!

    thanks guys!

    1/4 mile is around 15.2 - 15.6 seconds @ 93mph

    There are several tuning packages available with power from 200bhp upto 270bhp

    Think Regal have a 300bhp+ phase in development.

    thanks patrick

    any ideas what sort of time with intercooler, exhaust (including dump), re-written chip (or software?!) and say around 10psi?

    i would assume this would get it into the low 14s?

    i just got back from the dealer, they had a blue one there, but it was sold so i couldnt test drive it but i had a look and am very keen! love the leather!

    cheers

    That would be a phase 2 kit. Software, intercooler, plugs, filter and exhaust. Don't think low 14's probably more like high 14's. Think 13 sec 1/4's would be a hard task in the Astra Coupé would need nearly 300bhp before you get close.

    does the software upgrade somehow increase the boost!? or is this done the regular bleed way? ive been looking at courtenay sport, as well as regal.. and none of them seem to mention boost levels etc?!

    also, the 'phase' kits dont seem to include an exhaust... for example (from courtaney sport):

    CS 3 Upgrade
    The CS3 package consistes of Cooler running spark plugs, the air box is deristricted and our massive high flow 9 litre intercooler is fitted. With these items installed the CS3 sofware is downloaded into the ECU giving Increases up to 250 BHP & 285 lbs ft torque .... £1190.00 Fitted

    so you can get 250hp with these modifications and a standard exhaust system and standard boost :shock: is that right? as far as i know a good flowing exhaust system with dump pipe can give huge increases on turbo cars, does this not apply on the astra turbo or am i missing somthing?!

    hope someone can help me im a bit confused! :?
