    switching from ford to vauxhall

    hi everyone, Ive been into fastfords from the days of the escort rs 1600i right up to the focus rs and would never of dreamed of owning a vauxhall,well that all changed in september when i brought a mint black astra gsi turbo and now im in love. the dealer who sold it to me described it as totally standard with only the samco hoses to smarten up the engine bay, anyway after a few weeks i decided on a remap so booked the car into courtney sport for their stage1 but it turned out they knew the car well and it was already at their stage3 and after strapping it down to the rollers made 265bhp and 285lb! considering i only brought the astra as i couldn't afford a focus rs and now i've got a car that eats them for dinner at half the price!!! im over the fu****g moon,i cant believe i didnt even know about these cars just a few months ago, sorry lads!!!!!

    Welcome over. I was also into my Fords and had cossies and RST for years. However with the onslaught of kids I was thinking something a little more suitable that my 4x4 Cossie, bring on the Zafira GSi.

    Sounds like you had a touch with the stage 3!! As said above pictures when ready.
