    Exclamation Big power Z20LET engine build for a VX220

    I have spent the last 6 months prepping up for a big power build for my VX220 Turbo. I know it's not an Astra, but the engine is identical, so you may be interested in the engine build which is blogged here.

    The objective of the blog is to try and 'give a bit back' to the community on here (and elsewhere) that have helped me in the past and maybe inspire others to try a bit of 'heavy modding' themselves.
