    888 CDTI original power

    According to the supplying dealer the 888 CDTI starts life as 120BHP, thats the 8 valve engine. With the standard 16 valve coming with 150BHP I would of thought that this engine would be a better bet to increase the power? My question is, with the 888 CDTI engine running 2/3 increase in power over standard is the engine going to last? and what about the clutch and gearbox etc?

    the 888 CDTi has a new 16v 1.9 engine, the main difference to the 150 variant being the map on the ECU, much like the new 2.0T, 170 in the sporthatch and 200 in the other.

    According to the supplying dealer its the 120BHP 8 valve and even there promotional video on there web site says its 120BHP. Vauxhall say in there astra brochure that the 120BHP is 8 valve and the 150BHP is 16 valve.

    yes they do say its a 120bhp but they dont say if its a 8v or 16v trust me its started off as a 120bhp 16v car.
    all the diff is between the 120 and 150 bhp cars with the 16v is the map on the Ecu

    Astras don't get the 8V it's a remapped 16V.

    The Vectras got the 8V engine.

    As the others have said, the 120 came in 8V and 16V form. The 16V version is mechanically the same it's just a different software map.

    As for two giving up around the Nurburgring, I saw the hammer the guy before me gave the Thurlby demo car, and it's been tested by Auto Express, Autocar and Total Vauxhall, the latter racing against a VXR, not to mention all of the track testing that car has undergone, it's got about 20k on it now and it's holding together ok. I would be more worried about cluth wear personally.

    I would be surprised if any 888 CDTi's have actually been around the ring.
