I have recently bought an Astra Coupé Turbo and will soon be fitting an EDS phase 2 kit which should give around 250bhp but until then I want a bit extra.
I am going to Santa Pod this Sunday for the first time in this car with my mate who drives an Elise, I know that his book time is 14.8 @ 94mph (120bhp model) and that mine is 15.2 @ 93mph so already there is not a lot in it. he has never done a 1/4 mile before so thats to my advantage as well.
I know that induction kits are not the best modification to do to a road car due to the hot air but I've also been told that it doesn't really matter with a turbo'd car because of the intercooler cooling the air down. All I want to do is fit an induction kit to my car before Sunday so that I can stand a better chance of beating my mate up the strip. I've heard of some people making great power gains from putting an induction kit on their turbo'd motor. Is this true?
