Loc: Bebington, Wirral








Vauxhall Astra GSi 1998cc 16 valve
Flame Red

Drive modifications
Ported and gas flowed inlet/exhaust
K&N cone filter (with B&Q alum air con pipe laugh )
ECU chip
Black Diamond clutch
Koni dampers and springs
Scorpion de-cat
Janspeed system
Smoothed and sprayed red SFI box

Interior
Calibra Turbo Recaro heated leather seats/door cards
Corsa ('04) gearknob
Astra CDX Air Con. centre console
Calibra door locks
Daewoo Nexia Remote bootlock/fuel flap and buttons
Omega illuminated visors
Omega bugeye interior lights
Cavalier CDX electric sunroof motor
Vectra sunroof surround
Astra CDX illuminated grab handles

Kenwood speakers all round
Sony MDX6500r with steering column commander
Sony 10 disc changer
Clifford "500" security (fob with boot release, headlights on and remote engine start)

Exterior
Astra mk3 phase 2 (96-) electric heated side mirrors
Astra mk4 side repeaters
Smoothed GSi grille
Smoothed boot
Vectra lockless door handles
Stubby aerial


I have just put in a new idle control valve, lambda sensor, air flow metre, coolant temp sensor, distributor/rotor arm and cap.

to do:
It runs 95% perfect now, I can't complain about economy, I have new pulleys and need to put a new cam in before I put it in for a proper tune-up.
I have Calibra V6 front struts/Cavalier V6 rear beam for five stud/big brake conversion, (80 for both - bargain), but need five stud vaux alloys.
Bumper is getting the 'big mouth' treatment and spongey-mesh.

eventually:
I want to get the roof, door pillars and visors lined in suede or leather, clean up the engine bay (it's 90% caked in gunk), get the cam cover and cambelt cover painted, and replace the header tanks with Bailey aluminium types.

I did all of the work myself, apart from the chip and porting and H8 RED (Hatred) isn't the reg number, just on the wishlist. laugh

I'm getting my grubby mitts on a set of Calibra Turbo alloys, so can now change the hubs over. Hurrah!



So it'll look like this:


Trying my best 'keeping it standard'. Limits your options it does... frown

keeping it standard??????? i think i know what u mean. It looks incredibly sleeper mate, u cud tell a newbie modder that it "came like that" and they'd believe you but i sure as hell wouldnt, wud u need different struts for that? bein as the way the calibra struts may bolt to the cali hubs in a different way? i think u shud keep the boot smoothed mate, rebadge it with brand new badges tho from the ASTRA 5. And take them lights outta ur bumper. What u think mate?
