    Past 2 Weekends Work with my mate on my Coupe Turbo

    For the last two weekends, decided to :
    fit some coilovers
    do my inner c.v joint boot as it was split in half
    change gearbox oil
    fit quickshift
    airbox breather mod
    change rocker cover bolts
    sort out my vacuum boost hose

    was also working on my mates v6 gsi vectra...must say, love the sound of the v6 when reving...awesome.

    got sum pictures for you guys...let me know thoughts and next ideas.

    prev pic of car without coilovers and engine bay.



    Coilovers fitted.








    Quickshift fitted



    Engine Bay change (rocker cover bolts, Airbox breather mod and vacuum hose)



    finally, pic of the v6...we have put on the winter wheels as the summer wheels had goodyear F1 tyres on them, and wont grip in the winter weather...those wheels wear black and car was dropped 100mm on them...looked sh1t hot at the time...thought id put a pic of it up now though...




    currently rebuilding a v6 for this, and hopefully will be ready for june next year.

    future mods for my coupe now...is probably vxr turbo fitted, and then stage 3 eds map.
    body work, whiteline ARB front and back, imrcher rear bumper extensions, gsi bumper...paintwork and bodywork...what you guys think?

    lol...dont sniff glue...
    my mate aint been getting much grip, so he put back on the winter wheels...dont get me wrong, that vectra handles awesome in bends when he had the f1s on, but for sum reason, he aint been liking them in this weather. lol

    I like the wheels too mate, almost tempted me when you had your wheel swap thread up

    Did you sort the coilovers after and the camber etc? Looks much better now.
