Now im talking about the vauxhall low bost turbo not the izuzu engine!!
A few of my m8's have the 1.7 Izuzu engine and think there is no diesal engine better, They are a quick engine but they have a prob with over heating when flogged. Now i no u will say will u shouldnt b driving a diesal hard all the time but im a young guy and am still at the racing age :-) Now over the summer i have been driving an astra 1.7d with the vauxhall engine, no all summer i drove the **** out of this car with no probs,
But the question is, alot of ppl tell me the Vauxhall engine with the 1.7 low bost turbo is an awfull engine that gives alot of bother, im not sure as i havent drove the vauxhall td version only the straight d one.
Ive been offered a 1997 astra td(low blow vaux engine) that has been slightly hit at the front, just pannel damage for 900 quid, sounds good 2 me as i could sell and fix no probs,
What do you lot think of the vauxhall 1.7 td engine????
