Could have just been a standard Z20LET with a DV? As mine standard was faster than my 6...

When it was 270bhp it was beating my mates evo fq in straight lines LOL

Mine sounded like this standard with cone filter:



Loved that sound Cool

sounds mint, when you had the cone on it had you got rid of the crossover pipe or was it still there?

the 2.2 n/a coupes are 160 bhp but a fair lump of torque I believe.


thought it was about 147bhp? sure you don't mean 160lb/ft?

in europe they had the astra OPC before the 2.2 and the GSI turbo came out, that was a 2.0 NA with 160bhp, nearest thing vauxhall ever did to rival the 6/VTS.

i've always liked the mk4 astra, very similar shape to the xsara but more angular/chunky Smile don't like the VXR though, looks like a toy spaceship, as does anything made after 2000 Angry

The OPC was the european version of the GSI turbo and the current opel opc is the european version of the VXR

yeah OPC is basically what they call the GSI, but before the turbo, there was a period when the fastest mk4 astra on sale in the UK was the SRI, think that was the 134bhp 2.0, but on the continent at that time, they had the 2.0 NA OPC which we never got Wink
