    Hot Eco-tec

    Do all eco-tec engines in the astra range run very warm? mine seems to feel very warm when i lift the bonnet,this must affect performance?

    As long as the temp guage is with the normal range it'll be OK. But under bonnet temps do seem high on MK4's, which is the main reason why they don't like open cone induction kits.
