Astra H Handling and Stopping

We recently had the job of improving the stopping and handling on an Astra H.

This included supplying and fitting a D2 6 Pot 356mm front brake kit, complemented by a rear 292mm brake upgrade with vented rear 8G discs and new calipers.

Additionally a Premium Suspension package was also supplied and fitted: B8 dampers and DAP Road spec springs along with poly bushed Whiteline front wishbones, Powerflex poly rear beam bushes and a Whiteline rear anti roll bar.

 

Astra J VXR Stage 1+

Another Astra J VXR in for our increasingly popular Stage 1+ tuning package, comprising of front pipe fitting, ecu remap and rolling road set up. This car made a respectable 320bhp and 339 lb ft torque.

Corsa E VXR Mapping and Full Exhaust

This Corsa E VXR came to us to have a full turbo back 3″ exhaust fitted, followed by map optimisation to suit the exhaust and full rolling road set up.

Once set up the results were an impressive 241bhp and 244 lb ft torque. We also carried out our own unique hardware fix and software recalibration to the air flow meter to allow it to read and fuel correctly above 222bhp, where it is known that the standard air flow meter maxes out.

We also have in development the CSR MaxAir Intake System for Corsa E VXR, which will feature an enlarged airflow meter housing and large AEM Dryflow cone filter.

Astra 1.9 CDTi Single Mass Flywheel

Astra H 888 CDTi

We recently had this lovely Astra H 888 CDTi (Z19DTH engine with M32 gearbox) in for a lighter single mass flywheel (removing the dual mass flywheel) and sprung clutch assembly due to slight clutch slip on the factory clutch. At the same time we also overhauled the gearbox fitting new bearings throughout and the later end case, which features larger diameter end case bearings and additional oil galleries in the end case for better end case bearing lubrication.

Insignia VXR Front Pipe and Mapping

This Insignia VXR came in to have our high flow front pipe (which removes the pre-cat or first cat) and Euro V compliant high flow sports cat fitted.

Once this was done in the workshop, the car was into the dyno cell for mapping and full rolling road set up.
