    BIGGEST modification you've ever undertaken...

    whats the biggest modification you've ever undertaken on any of your cars? (not talking about putting a 15ft spolier on the back-BIG)



    Mine would be 1.6 8v C16SE to 2.0 16v 20XE Engine Conversion.. had help off a few mates who all new there cars pretty well (1 vaux head, 1 old mechanic and 1 engine builder) but waking up the next morning, and opening the curtains on the front room to see this...

    ...i was thinking 'what have i done....''but completly worth it in the end...we then did a Corsa 2.0 16v, then a Jap import turbo into a scooby sport

    Would have to be helping put a C20LET into a my mk4 astra SRi

    Few things made it exciting, biggest one, being it was the very first mk4 conversion kit supplied by M-Tech in the UK.
    I had the very first kit, which was going to be hand delivered by M-Tech themselves...although that didnt happen

    Midday on Saturday...


    Couple of hours later...


    Sunday morning...it was in and running


    Off to stealth systems for the manifold to be made and partnered to the centre section


    Back from stealth - I could now drive it up and down the road..not long to go


    Back home


    Fitted coilovers whilst we were at it


    Replaced the old i/c with a custom serck marston rally cored one


    Then Total Vauxhall offered me a feature


    Then sold the ****in thing cos im a ****
