    Asrat. Ghetto tuning

    This was ment to be at PVS but due to a over enthusastic driver from the MOT station and not giving the engine time to bed back in since its had bottom end work and been stood for 2 years. A pretty hole in blown thourgh the sump ended the PVS trip on the friday before.

    But Shaun (fastvaux) with his xe haul and xe he nose sniffed out its replacment within 2 days and were both about to swap the lumps over. Me and shaun and mat hope to use asrat as fun car for track days ect to blow a little steam off.

    Me and Shaun the Xe wizard lol did this car 3 weeks before pvs, both having demading jobs and Kiddies and familys we managed to do this down at our unit it quick time.

    Whats been done?

    Basicalliy the cars been mechanically completley over hauled. Being a xe conversion. F16 cr gear box and cav v6 equal length driveshafts. Green cotton airfilter, GTE 16v red dot groved disks and pads up front. astra gsi rear disk brake setup, twin anti roll bar at the rear, strut brace up front, interior stripped out, two ****ed buckets, sparco harnesses, rear brace, gte digital dash conversion, mountney wheel. Borbet 16" 7 1/2 j wheels refurbished and painted,Manual rack. And all the work needed for its mot. The car passed with no advisories again.

    So here are some pics. Laugh, like critisise and enjoy

    amazing work from all involved, you should be really proud of yourselves

    Its nice to see that she is still recognisable, for a brief moment, I thought she might look different on the outside.

    This engine was rolling roaded at 165bhp.
    Dont know how good a unit the one we have to replace it is. But there is work to be done on the engine, just going to run it first then go from there
