My New Track Toy

by KERR_SE9 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 10:15 pm

Hi folks (PICS ASAP)
Just picked up a 2001 Astra Coupe Turbo,Full Mot/Tax and Timing belt done,for the amazing price of £570!!
I'm stripping it out and keeping it for track days

Anyone got suggestions for more power?
Plans are mega low fat diet,better brakes and coilovers

Whiteline rear ARB is an absoute must, as is powerflex front lower engine mount.

Stock brakes/steering/body stiffness are miles better than Calibra, I hate to admit it :(

Yeah,It does handle quite well,not anywhere close to standard C20LET performance
I've pulled all the interior out,so that's a start
