My car's gonna get some mods soon.

First I want to see what can be done with the 1.4 SPi so i'm getting a different camshaft. It will be a copy of a Courtenay cam, then some head work. While that's going on, i'm going to fit a digi dash. I'll post up how I went about fitting it (hopefully!).

Alright mate,
Yeah It is running great, apart from a dodgy Idle control valve but will get that sorted. Yours will be quicker if I dont change gear before the revs get to the bottom! lol I wonder how many Scots we have on here now, could get a minimeet sorted. Mind you I think you are the furthest North! lol There is a few Fifers.

Bob :)

Well I found a cav SRI on a f reg. So i'm gonna buy it, some time. But i've been offered a 18SE out of a MK2 Astra SRI for £10 with loom and gearbox. If I find a 3dr MK3 i'll have that as well.

Yeah I know, it's quite a rare model. In fact i've got some new pics. What i'll do is see what every one wants off it. There's a good idle valve on it, you can have it for £6 plus p&p ;) :) . Here's pic of why I got the car at that price.

Quite a mess. Typical wheel arch rot, shame really I would of put it back on the road.

Nah, it's a C20NE (aka useless piece of crap). I want a 20SEH for mine. I know of a whole MK3 Cav SRI with one and going for a good price. I might stick the NE in a another astra for a laugh, if I can find one that is.

Now i've got the filters for the Digi Dash from Dom on migweb.co.uk so i'm changing the very 80's orange glow to a cool blue.

:thumbup: Woohoo! I've got a lowering kit coming soon. That should sharpen things up, I might try and find a GSi 2nd anti-roll bar as well.

Here's a pic of the new parts i've got for me '3'. It's a Gmax lowering kit for a MK2 GTE 16V. This will be fun!

I'll try. Ahem, the car is Dumfries (don't ask but it is mine and I've got V5 to prove), i'm here in forres some distance. So pics could be about Crimbo time. But pics will be taken as will the Digi Dash transplant!
