    SRI TURBO. my first project :)

    Hi there. Bought myself an astra sri with a Z20let turbo conversion.
    My project is to get it looking exactly like the sri turbo, getting the wiring loom in, get the dash wired and generall get the car spotless.

    Already I've had my bumper stolen, so bought a new one off gumtree and it was never posted out, so I've been totally conned!

    I live in N Ireland and really could to with a good guy to help me wire the thing as I'm a bit of a novice, but this car has to go on the road, cos I love it and really want it finished and good good.

    I'm willing to pay anyone who can give me some decent help!

    So far some pic's.
    I'm hiring out a conatiner to keep the car in at the moment.


















    ALL COMMENT, THOUGHTS, IDEAS, WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!

    Unlikely unless its on a private plate, they only started making them from around 52 plates

    Banbridge. Touble is I have never et other astra owners except a friend who builds rally cars for Kenny McKinstry. Although his days for rallying are over, hence is back to a 1.6 as oppised to an ascone 2.0, or his chevette HSR!

    If you know anything, or anyone that could help me with the project, I'd love to know!

    Well you could be forgiven for thinking so. The guy before me had the body kit on when he bought it, but decided to take the X20XEV out about, put in a Z20LET, to complete the image I guess!lol

    Love the car. I hope I don't end up breaking, but wil have to if I can't get the wiring done. I'm hiring out the container till somethings done though!

    Thats my old Sri 2.0. That sure was a great car, I loved it . I had it sent over to Ireland for a member who used to be on here 7-UP. He had plans to put a Turbo engine in it, but I think he had trouble getting some of the parts. Shame it never got finished. I hope it gets finished this time

    Some old shots.............
