    X-rated astra

    If you read the feature in total vauxhall this month about the x-rated astra on page 82 they say it has a Z20LET but if you turn to the last page of the feature there is a picture of the engine which is obviously X20XEV. Think someone is telling porkies! :roll:

    Yep. I agree, must be an X20XEV or similar, if you had a blown G you certainly wouldn't site your numberplate in front of the intercooler.

    TV have gone downhill a bit on this issue. They have a write up on Nick Caro's Nova, going on about his custom rear lights, then never show you a picture of them :roll:

    In the same write up they renamed the legendary Harry Hockley as the less well know HARRY HINCKLEY!

    I think they need to proof read the issues a bit more (or stop writing it down the pub!)

    They've done this for ages.
    I remember one they wrote about custom made interior bits and never shown a decent interior pic.
    They done it on all sorts, thats just the one a can remember.
    Even thought about writing to them about it. As their isn't much point in writing about it if we cant see the results.

    They did it last month, talking about a guys ice install, and how he wanted it to look good for the feature, and didn't show a picture of it. Just an interior shot showing his HU
