Just looking on eBay and came across this engine,

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/c20xe-redtop-...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item27b04f5647

The guy claims the following ''I have a print out from courtney sport of 169.9 bhp, therefore the engine is very strong and from as far as i know unmodified.''

If he does have this print out for real, then it's clearly not a standard engine....

I see so many redtops on ebay claiming 170+ bhp from standard engines usually in nova's...... just makes me laugh.

its been on one of them RR's that add 20bhp to make it look good lol
 
Someone send him a message asking him to send a scanned copy of the RR printout.

Bet he comes up with some excuse.
 
i asked him to see printout he said he could scan it as his scanner was faulty lol
 
looks a mess
 
never under estimate pub bhp figures !!! lol

why do people chat bollox to sell stuff ?

im no redtop expert but if i remeber way back did nt the mk2 gte 16v come with 156 bhp ? so maybe with a powercap 159 - 160 if lucky
 
Yes the astra gte was the early type so came with de-cat which was 156, the later ones where 147 in the calibra's.

I had a power-sap and it was poo, get a big flat spot at 5k for around 900rpm then hard acceleration but still pants..

Adz your probably more right than you know. I went to an RR day at Courtenay the week after my XE conversion and got 160bph on a standard engine. A few others got the same kind of result, about 10bhp more than expected.

I want to believe their old rollers were accurate, but the cynic in me reckons they upgraded recently for a reason...
 
that's abit poo ent it?

so were can you go to actually get good propper actualy figures?
