    Yesterdays work on the Astra

    Following on from this thread:


    It was time to do some work again on the GSI. So with a few hours free yesterday afternoon it was out with the spanners.

    Before:





    Hmmmm theres something missing:



    and after:



    One Dbilas manifold installed.

    Was pretty straight forward to do, total working time was only a tad over 2.5 hours. Whilst fitting it I also found a split on the throttle body breather:



    Also took the opportunity to give the throttle body a quick clean.
    Unfortunately as it was pissing down last night I never got the chance to give the car much of a drive, but it does seem to pull harder, will get it back out in the dry and will be putting it back onthe rollers to see what the gains are.

    Jam - prior to fitting she was running 275bhp & 291lb-ft of torque.

    danny - aye was confued at the fitting time tbh as it was 2.5 hours on a driveway in the pissing rain with no instructions. The only extra time taken over and above the 2.5hours was the time taken to find S70CON;s picture of his setup as it bigger this more detailed than the one supplied by Dbilas. And also the time take to find another hose to replace the one coming off the top hat.
