    Talking New Manifolds Etc Planned For Zlet

    been speaking to various tuning companies and it looks like they are all doing a high flow manifold to take either garrett turbos or even subaru turbos??
    interesting!
    looks like 300 plus will be easily achievable then

    my trust is with courtenays to be honest!

    watch this space!

    I'd be happy with 250 to be honest, any more is a waste IMO

    sounds good as i have been looking at hybrid turbos but would rather move away from kkk to garret as there is more options available

    To be honest, unless people can find a way of getting the power to the road, all the extra expense of fitting a bespoke manifold with turbo and setting it up will be the realms of the VX220 owners, rather than the Astra or Zafira owners.

    The same has gone with the tuning of the 2.2, as most of the 'full hit' mods are aimed at the VX, rather than the Astra
