Howdy all,

in process of getting my new motor, '92 Cav GSi. Hoping to have it in the next few weeks, then i have some bits and bobs lined up for it...

-Get cav
-Get 5 stud conversion & fit it
-Get turbo rims refurbed in anthracite
-Get camber adjustment bolts
-Get full black leather
-Change exhaust(dont like twin dtm)
-Change side repeaters

-Eventually get some 5 spoke astra turbo rims & paint them anthracite.

Then in the distant future, fit a LET, or run throttle bodies, not sure which yet

Heres a 'shopped pic with some anthracite cav turbo rims & lowered a little more...



I am hoping to get her so i can get over to the billing meet, but i dont know exactly when i will be picking her up, so cant be sure.

Anyone think of anything that might be worth doing to the car?

heres the spec...

1992 'J' Cavalier GSi 2000 16v

Bodywork: Imaculate Metallic Black. Vectra Door Handles, clear oval side repeaters. Courtenay graffics on side skirts, laguna front splitter, Cavalier Turbo rear lights and back panel. new Rear Arches.

Interior: Beige interior, Recaro's. White dials. Electric everything.

Engine: Ported & Polished Racing head. Racing Cams (QED Developments) Uprated air mass meter, Superchipped. Rolling road tuned (roughly 170bhp). Janspeed Exhaust DTM Style, all done in the last 40k. Chrome bonnet struts, Brand New Starter Motor and Battery

Chassis: Spax Shocks and Courtenay Springs -30mm. Cav GSi alloys, Grooved discs with EBC green stuff pads and freshly painted calipers. New anti Roll bar, Drive Shafts

Cheers for comments, once i pick the car up i will get some more pics done & keep everyone updated with progress :beer:

That looks mint. Not keen on the turbo wheels. I think you should do the original cav gsi wheels in anthracite.
