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 […]

It returned to us to have some further enhancements which included a full 76mm Tullett […]
Another Astra J VXR in for a Stage1+ tuning package, which is proving to be a very popular option for many owners. The first stage is to benchmarck the power of the standard car. It had already had a generic flash map installed via a well known hand held tuning box, so we first ran […]
In our workshop today was this 7,000 mile Corsa E VXR with the latest version of the 1.6 Turbo engine, B16LES. The first job was to remove the restrictive pre cat (first cat) and fit one of our straight through downpipes (pre cat removal pipe). Once fitted it was round into the dyno cell for […]
Some pictures for reference, in gallery form and in no particular order, showing our braided rear brake hoses fitted on Astra H VXR. These should offer some help with installation of the rear braided brake lines. The brackets from the factory brake lines can be reused to accept the new braided brake lines. Remove the […]

This Astravan came to us for a gearbox overhaul and ecu remap and rolling road set up.
