Hello my fellow Opel/vauxhall mates..
i´d thought somebody might be interested in my project.
I got an Astra MKI GTE wich i have owned since late -96
It has gone through a lot of work since then.
first a total rebuild,, done in a hurry,, not so good
Drove it with a XE first,, blew cambelt.
Builded a heavily modified C20Ne (aprox 205hp)
pic of cylinderhead(i avent got much pics of this)
then i ran into a very cheap LET, rebuilded that one with h-profile rods and so on, and punished it like hell.
First summer with std turbo and aprox 310hp
Second summer with aprox 480hp
then it went in to heavily mods.
i have now converted it to 4wd with Toyota transmission from Celica GT4
But i´m using Calibra 16v rearaxle beam. ofcourse with toyota rear drive.
I´m also building a new engine(pics here:http://s93.photobucket.com/albums/l6...erskog/C23LET/)
pic of engine:
Contains a lot of goodies.
35mm inlet valves
31mm outlet valves
Sachs racing two disc 200mm clutch.
DTA S60PRO EMS
1680cc injectors (only 998cc in pictures)
homemade inlet manifold with homemade throttle (75mm)
Homemade pulleys for camshafts
T6 aluminium retainers.
well.. almost to much to list.
chassi is uprated with uniballs everywhere
and bilstein coilovers(homemade in front)
330x32mm brakes in front with brembo 4 pot calipers
std brakes in rear.
Interior got two lightweight recaro´s
