    Lightbulb garlic crusher

    i have just finished reading the astra 1.8 vs vts and i want to tune my car to beat one with no regards to money as i am only young once it may take a while but i will do it!! any ideas where to start my car is already stripped out with a de-restricted airbox, de-cat and stainless cat back. am looking to sort handling first so what should i get coil overs or springs? also im thinking of either a new inlet manifold or throttle bodies which would work better?

    245bhp vs 120bhp

    its going to cost a lot of money to get over 140bhp out of the 1.8

    PMSL at Craig, has he hit a nerve?

    I'd just want to see him in a convoy with a load of LET's and just be left at the back of the pack, revving the nuts out of his engine, enjoying the sound of the throttle bodies................all by himself

    nah not hit a nerve as such

    just the way he has swanned on here stating that "tubo's are for fannys" forgetting that prob half our members drive turbos

    so does that mean he is calling half our members "fannys" ???
