    re: Astra Coupe Bodykits

    That replacement turbo that makes the astra 320-340 bhp is tempting lol. those wide kits are a bit expensive £2,300 :shock:

    You mean the phase 4 turbo's?

    You won't get 320 BHP if you fit one at least if you get close you won't be able to use the power without an LSD and to make the engine reliable you'd really need to look at doing the internal phase 4 work.

    totally agree with that theres no way the standard internals of the 2.0litre turbo would be capable of handling that sort of power without some modifications basically upgrading a turbo without making the engine stronger is as useful as turning your boost up full on a standard turbo leaving it running like that for ages and the internals just give up!

    I wouldnt put that much power into a FWD car, waste of money, even with a LSD

    I think you would need LSD and a after market traction control system. This will let you use this power in the higher gears at least .
