This Astra H VXR Nürburgring is a well loved and enjoyed example having covered some 110,000 miles, but it always gets regular 5,000 mile oil changes. It shows the durability of the engines as this car has been tuned to several levels, originally starting at Stage 3.
More recently it has benefitted from the addition of a K06 hybrid turbo and Courtenay Klasen Inlet manifold, a set of steel rods and with mapping and set up is currently making 316 bhp on the 70mm Remus exhaust system.
It is due back soon for a full 76mm exhaust system to release the additional power available from the fitted components, which is being held back by the Remus system.
Excellent results showing that mileage is not detrimental to the Z20LEH engine making good power, providing regular maintenacne is carried out.
