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 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.

Another M32 gearbox from an Astra H in for bearing replacement and upgrade to the later endcase with larger endcase bearings.

This gearbox had covered some 90,000 miles before need to have the bearings replaced, and whilst the box was off the car for overhaul the later endcase which features additional oil galleries and larger endcase bearings was fitted.

The box was refitted and filled with 3 litres of very high quality fully synthetic Amsoil MTG 75w-90 gearbox oil, and also the dual mass flywheel, clutch (cover and disc) and hydraulic slave cylinder were also replaced using genuine OE components.

We do not just work on performance cars!

During routine servicing a knocking noise was identified on this Vectra C 1.9 CDTi which was only evident when the clutch was released. The noise was diagnosed as play within the dual mass flywheel assembly. Before it got too bad the customer asked for the appropriate repairs to be undertaken.

Once the engine bed and gearbox were removed, a replacement OEM dual mass flywheel and clutch assembly with new hydraulic slave cylinder were fitted.

At our request, Powerflex have added a couple of new polyurethane engine mount inserts to their Astra H range.

Courtenay Sport supplied the relevant OE engine mounts and asked if a lower front engine mount insert for Astra H 1.9 CDTi models and an insert for the Right Hand Side Mount for Astra H VXR and 1.9 CDTi could be produced.

These engine mount inserts fit into and fill the voids in the original bushes and are recommended as a labour saving method of limiting engine movement to improve vehicle performance and reduce the likelihood of engine mount and downpipe failure caused by excessive movement. Some additional NVH may be experienced.

These mounts are now available in both road spec material to reduce engine movement but limit increased Noise, Vibrationand Harshness (NVH) and Black 95 Shore Track spec material, which due to its nature is much stiffer and will lead to significantly more NVH being transmitted.
