    yes they are

    it will be a twin turbo TDI pumping out over 200 hoses

    and AFAIK it will be quicker 0-60 than the astra gsi turbo

    The 1.9 twin turbo diesel engine in question has been in the Saabs for a little while, apparently GM were testing it out on them before they stuck it in Vauxhalls and Opels, this is what i was told by the workshop foreman in the vaux dealership i worked in during the summer, i think i annoyed people with all my questions I can also remember hearing somewhere that they are looking at brining the torque up to 450 pound feet (or whatever they're called, i only know SI units) of torque for vauxhall. One of these engines has even been put in an Opel Speedster, the Eco speedster or something. I also remember hearing that they were playing games with boxsters and mercs during testing on the autobhans, letting them pull alongside thinking that it's just a vectra and then just leaving them for dead accelerating with a seamless mountain of torque. I have no idea where i heard most of this, my brain is a like a sponge for car info :P

    No, but the Vectra GSi is about to get a make over with head lights similar to the new Astra, 19" wheels and a remap giving 240(ish) bhp from the 3.2 Ecotec.

    that sounds good, but what you can get is the new(ish) 1.9 CDTi 150ps SRi with a six speed box. There is a lower powered version also but with the full irmscher list checked when new these come out looking like new GSi's or better!.... There are two in my town, the local vauxhall dealer has one (my mates dad) and his brother has bought one too. Ive had a drive in one and its very impressive. and it was doing 44mpg in town! Would defenetly consider one if i could afford it. If they twin turbo makes an appearance it would be quicker than the 3.2 according to vauxhall. looks like we have alot to look forward to us vaux fans!
