    just bought a coupe turbo and need help and advice..

    first, need coilovers ? tempted by the new Eibach's ? do they definately do a kit for the coupe turbo ?. what is the ride comfort like on these ?.

    second, 18's. what's best 7" or can you use 7.5" wide ?. tyres best would be 215/35/18 ?.

    is the viper kit best for induction ?

    what dump valve kit should i go for ?

    is there an exhaust that people would recommend for power/looks and noise ? want something that sounds the nuts really ?.

    phew!!! sorry for all the questions!

    1. Yup eibach makes a coilover kit for the astra coupe. Check my site for prices .

    2. Alloys can go upto 8 Inch on the front .

    3. 215/35/18 is best for clearence and keeping the rolling radius the same .

    4. Do you want a induction kit for noise or power?

    5. Baliey Evo DV26 with "D" type spring dump valve is the only one on the market for the Astra Coupe/Sri/Gsi Turbos. And they are pretty good . Doing a speical offer price on them atm check my site out .

    6. Get a custom exhaust made to suit your needs . Ascar are very good i've spoken to them and there very helpful . Or if you don't want the hassle Mongoose make a CAT back system for the Astra coupe as well . Again check my site for prices. .

    yes, went to meet on tuesday and i bloke had a coupe, SE2 with a koni adjustable kit with 19's on,just got the irmscher clearence kit for the rear arch, and they fit no probs he said!

    it was a 2.2 with 220bhp, cams, chip, manifold, zorst, green injectors, all REGAL tuned!!

    i wouldn't bother with a dump valve, after hearing one with and with out i couldn't tell the diference.

    most peeps who have a turbo and a viper say it doesn't do anything for the power, so put the cash to a stage one kit instead.

    Hey! the 2.2 is a quality motor!

    I know VXL say 147bhp, but a lot of 2.2s who have been on rolling roads seem to be putting out 155-165bhp with no mods. Wouldn't take to much internal work to hit 200bhp+
