    My day on the rollers!

    Well today i spent the day with all my m8s from surrey way at
    SURREY ROLLING ROAD!

    My Astra 1.8 16v SXi 2001 Reached:
    119.6 BHP at the wheel.

    So not to bad. i was quite happy with it. but i was there with Loada other cars that reached as high as 400BHP and it makes me so wanting a turbo in mine! but u make do with what u have and think urself likey there always be someone that will have it less than u!

    but im only 22 still loada time to fly! lol

    i made a vid and loada pic so when i have the time to edit them ill post up my eventfull day!

    119.6hp at the wheel? You sure that's correct? That'd make it about 150hp at the fly going by the usual transmission losses on the Astra.

    Yeah, 119hp calculated at the fly. You only got 97.1hp at the wheels.

    119hp is about right for a good X18XE1, not so good for a Z18XE.

    2001, it could be either. I've seen 2001 cars with the old engine, and I've seen 2000 cars with the new ones. Really depends on how long the car sat in stock at the dealer.
