    Anything you want really 2lt turbos are the fav
    you could go for a V6

    following on from the V6 you could go with that and supercharge it or be different and put throttle bodies on it which are availble from Jenvey

    Regal offer diesel power upgrades as well

    V6 lumps are cheap in comparison to turbo models.
    These start at around £300 with ECU, loom etc plus you will have some money spare to do some upgrades.

    Turbo models are more money, as so many people want them. but more parts are availble and easier to tune.

    Without modding the bulkhead, you can get the 3.0 V6 in there. Power wise, a VXR lump will go in, or if you wanna go all out, move the bulhead back, and with 3 years of work you can get a monaro V8 in there.

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
