about time i updated a bit had some bad news with the turbo the exhaust manifold cracked which lead to more problems to find out that i had 3 snaped studs in the head so car had to come of the road so had to find a run about car luckly picked up an astra gsi cheap but only 1.8 (very slow). only thing i had to do was to put my wheels on it from the turbo as the wheels on it had 2 bold tyers



pics of the run about

pics of the turbo



thinking theses wheels look so much better on it

pic of the crack in the manifold

getting it sent of soon to be welded up

pic of the heads with snaped studs


took a pic of the turbo


and how the car looks like in the garage

engine should be out in the next couple of weeks to get it sent of to get the studs drillled out and helly coiled.

Nice phase 2 you've got there... like the phase 1 too and from the pic it doesnt look in bad nick either. Take it that its got the 1.8 X20XEV engine in it with it being an M reg?

it will be the C18XE my mate, x20xev is a 2.0l as found in the later type astra gsi`s.

but shame about the turbo mate, im after me a turbo like yours with manifold, external wastegate etc. if you wanna sell let me know :heh:
