Hello everybody here, just registered but have been lurking on this site for a little while now. Its usually my first step for information on various queries I have had with my Astra, find it one of the best forums on the 'net.
My car is a Mk4 1.8 (X18XE1) CDX. Its slowly coming along to how I want it. Currently its been treated to
Veccy C pipe and derestricted airbox
Dbilas Fast Road Cams
Milltek Cat back system
Eibach Pro Kit 30mm drop
Coupe front bumper
rear bumper (the rare one that matches the front airdam)
Vectra B facelift rims
Irmscher wood steering wheel
All work except the remap is carried out by Dad who is an amazing mechanic, usually going along with my random ideas.
Today we derestricted the manifold but I swear actually slower than before. Its not an easy job unless your quite competent, took my Dad and a mechanic mate about 3 hours to change over to the spare manifold we had modified. It took my Dad about 5 hours to take all the ducting out and grind away the shoulders etc.
So bit disappointed with the results but will give it a few hundered miles for the car to get used to it, took a little while for the cams to produce any meaningful gains.
Any way enough rabbling on, here should be a pic if it works, not good photos, we had problems with the camera unfortunatly. Cheerss for listening and gotta say hi again to everyone at Astra Sport.
