  • introduction and the car's we have

    as above, time to say hello and show the car's we have

    been a vauxhall man for many a year now and had plenty of different types but the one's we have now are keeper's...

    1st, MY baby and long term (7yr's so far) project...

    my vectra c, started out an a 120cdti sxi but not really an sxi anymore as it's had a few 's spent on it to make it an irmscher I35 replica...

    next is RAZOR..

    my wifes 1.2 5 door limited editon corsa d in chilli orange, quite a rear beast this as far as LE's go as still less than 50 made worldwide in this colour/style, this is #035 and the only one to be built with factory upgrades of bluetooth and winterpack.


    ]"]Error | Photobucket

    so far have done a few minor mod's, full size spare wheel, false boot floor, C/C front grill and foglight bit's, debadge, pipercross panel filter and airbox mod, C/C griffins on wheel centres, tinted front windows and a sun strip, tinted side repeaters, sunglass's holders where grab handles were, centre console domed badge #035 chilli LE, LE keyring......

    not doing to much else now due to warranty but would like remap, lowering spring's and remus exhaust for it...

    and finaly the latest addition, mine and my son's project,

    a 1995 1.2 5 door arizona in silver...

    72k miles, 3 owners from new (2+3 were husband & wife) was sat for 2.5 yr's when she decided to sell it, checked fluids ect, jump started it and it fired up and ran like a dream, took her away to my son's workplace and went over it, need's a small amount of welding on drivers sill, 4 tyres, rear wheel bearing adjusting and a handbrake cable to pass it's MOT

    also giving it a good going over starting with a full service inc changing all fluids/oils, all brakes are being overhauled and buying new parts as we go along.

    other plans are....

    lowering it 40mm on apex spring's, K&N panel filter, de-restricted airbox, 14'' steel wheels, newer front and rear bumper, poss front spoiler, tailgate spoiler, tint's, tinted rear light's and side repeaters, electric sunroof conversion, central locking, steering wheel swap, and eventually spray it all matt black with coloured wheel's.

    We cant go too mad as going to be laddo's daily driver and it's his first car...

    so there you go, thats me and our car's

    cheer's for looking

    Chilli orange is one of my favourite colours, if not my favourite colour for the D. I like the subtle changes you've made to it.

        My girlfriend has the yellow 3 door LE. They're great inside and I'm impressed with the build quality, especially considering it's a Vauxhall.

        The engine's are a bit lacking but they're fine around town and the diesel cruises along very happily on the motorway.

          yeah not a bad car overall, built on an sxi platform so pretty good to start off with, plastics are a bit plasticy but guess thats down to comparing them to the feel of the vectra's,

          we opted for the 1.2 petrol as my mum has a 1.3 cdti and although it's a decent lump i dont want any dpf problems with the shorter stop start trips my wife does.

          she is getting about 38mpg and tbh thats not bad for a 5 door car with a tiny lump lol, i would have it remaped tomorrow as it will take it from 84 to 105 bhp so drivability would improve no end, warranty says no though so i just pootle in it and enjoy the 350ft lb the vec has.....

            Nice cars for all the family there. That's a lot of torque from the Vectra. What engine mods does it have?

                      it has a K&N panel filter, airbox mod, decat, straight through exhaust with irmscher back boxes, remap by promap tuning, figures at last RR were165 bhp and 350ft lb torque, it's the 120 cdti 8v and tbh it was running no back boxes then just a straight through system with quad tailpipes..

                        Are you sure it wasn't 350nm of torque? 350ft lb usually needs custom injectors, hybrid turbo, fmic ect as they're they're 206ft lb of torque standard and 280nm

                            sorry guys just re-read the graph and it is indeed 350nm, well 348nm to be precise, so thats around 250ft lb, when you just said that it's 475nm i thought no way cant be that as the gearbox is only good for 400 NM lol
