    Not if he has the graphs to prove? ask for a copy to be e-mailed to you...

    Another nice touch "The car is still a 1.4 on the log book. " So it shouldn't be on the road either then....... uninsurable

    I wasn't looking at buying it - just wondered whether you could get that power with the mods on that engine and how long it would last running at the boost level.

    Well I suppose when you only drive it on a runway then you aren't going to worry about stopping!

    those mods I cant see why he's not at those figures. Impressive nevertheless

    it wouldnt be difficult to change the logbook either, if i had the spare money, id buy it just for the engine and put another engine in that one..

    Running that sort of boost level, depending on how its driven and looked after etc. But it probably wouldn't last that long between major strip downs. I wouldn't have thought it would have lasted long - not the way I drive anyway!!

    I agree with the above, put the engine in something else.... a nice coupe or turn it into a sleeper!

    I think if I had the money to buy it, I'd just swap the bumper and skirts for a nice set of "envoy" ones, refit the original badges, and then go piss off a few "performance" car owners

    oh and ditch the sunstrip immediately

    This car seems to be popping up a lot lately. The owner can't seem to sell it. One of the AS/AOC members went to have a look at it:

    regal stage 6 is about that power figure, so is prob accurate. doubt it puts it all down onto the road very well though, most high performance astra's seem to struggle, best have a lower BHP and more grip than loads of power and not go anywhere! lol
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo
