    I would think the Germans will get it sorted, they are streets ahead with Vauxhall/Opel tuning than the UK are.

    I have no doubt about that, but the quest for pub talk my knobs bigger than yours is on !! lol !!

    I reckon 2 of these buggers in a 5 door hatch would be the nuts

    Whipping them out and measuring it would be cheaper

    What woud really be impressive is taking a Cav shell, fitting a full working 4x4 system with a 350bhp VXR lump.....but the limits of tuning on these things will be high.

    If EDS/Regals whatever are getting 380 bhp out of each one now, stick 2 of them in a 5 door, tint the rear windows, theres 770bhp + some NOS + A N Other and u could be knocking on the door of 1000bhp

    I am liking your idea though dave, wonder if it could be done ???

    I have thought about it, find a decent shelll, chances are the box would be fecked, replace that with a 50/50 lock box, strip out the rear and cage it, lower it on coilovers with standard wheels and the lump, awesome track car.

    Wonder if you could adapt the superior Audi haldex system and mate that to the engine ?? just use the audi running gear but Vx everything else ??

    Unsure whether i like the Haldex system or not, only for the reason that is not permanent 4x4, that aside its certainly a clever bit of kit, I would imagine it would be able to be adapted to fit the cavalier though.
