    Thumbs Up One of the fastest astras i've seen

    Was out last nite with a few mates when a standard looking silver astra drove past and let off a dump valve , now this astra didnt look like a sri-t and it wasnt a gsi. so i was pondering what engine was in the thing when i was let out of my missery........2.2 TURBO!! oh yes, he has got the standard 2.2 and bolted a turbo onto it, aparantly this thing can make the likes of rx8s go into the red to keep up. very nice very sneaky in the way you wouldnt think its anything special untill its to late.

    2.2 turbos will become more common when the kits are more readily available - nice engine to turbo too !

    how more readily available do they have to be ?? you just buy a saab engine and they are already turbo'd and drop straight in.. looms are the same... mounts.. etc

    its just the vaux 2.2 with stronger internals and a turbo.

    Couldn't get much easier or available than that.

    courtenay do the conversion primarily for the vx220 market so i'd presume that was what it was. can't see them developing much more grunt than the z20let tbh but still 'ample'
