    Question Astra H Z1.8XE Engine Mods?

    What is available for my engine...Cant find anything...im after e.g..

    replacement manifolds (inlet and outlet?)
    replacement water pipes
    Maybe convert this in to a 1.8 turbo?

    VXR intake breather will it fit?

    Here is my lovely looking engine hehe.. (complete with Engine code?)

    you can get a inlet manifold for it and a turbo kit but its cheaper to but a sri170or 200 in the 5 door as to turbo the 1.8 your looking at near 4-5k
    the exhaust manifold has the cat in it so that about Ł720ish or Ł600 from germany

    get a lexmaul 4-2-1 outlet manifold. dibilas inlet manifold if you want to pay an extortionate price



    1.8 - Z18XE comes with software giving gains of 22ps.
    PriceŁ1,023.27




    1.8 turbo is possible i believe dilibas now do a kit, althougfh i think it will be cheaper and more profitable if you want serious power to replace the engine. a let lump will set u back around 1700 and the turbo kit will be the same. installation will be both as pricy as each other due to the fact they are engine out mods.
