    Angry sri turbo .. need a drop of help

    hi there .. i have a 52 reg astra sri turbo

    re-map stage 2
    VXR turbo
    panell filter
    NGK 6 iridium spark plugs
    de-restricted and drilled air box
    scorpion exhaust system
    lowered on apex springs

    and i think the standard black door trim and handles look awfull in that old blacky colour lol .. i know i can take them off and spray them silver but i would like to know .. isit possible to get them ordered from any were that already come in the silver plastic ??

    and just one other thing .. i have bought this car with the VXr turbo and the coolent pipe that goes from the rad to the turbo has been bodged .. so i got a brand new one from vaux and it still doesnt fit .. does any one know what i have to do ? .. i have already tryed to get a astra VXR one and there totally difrent , so ive just left it bodged on and im not happy with that as im a bit of a perfectionist.

    thanks ever so much

    will

    As regards the handles and bump strips think you would need to spray them yourself (or professional). Doubt if you could get hold of any new one's, or try a scrapyard.

    Take it your going for this look:



    Regarding the 1.9cdti airbox here's a few threads that might be of use for you

    The water feed pipe from top of rad to turbo part number is 90423510. This will be the part you require to get it perfect again.

    Upload your pics onto photobucket, then once you have uploaded the pics (usually "large" size I go for in the options), simply copy the image code and paste into your AOC post.
