Opel Speedster Turbo K06 and Inlet Manifold

This car had previously been in for a full engine rebuild with forged pistons and steel rods, strengthening the factory Z20LET engine and was running a K04 Z20LEH VXR turbocharger, Milltek 63.5mm exhaust system, Pro Alloy chargecooler and VXR injectors.

It returned to us to have some further enhancements which included a full 76mm Tullett exhaust system, a K06 turbocharger, Courtenay Klasen inlet manifold, uprated clutch and 80mm air flow meter.

After mapping and a full rolling road set up it is now producing 334bhp and 340lb ft torque, and is very at home on the track where it spends most of its ‘working’ life.

VX220 Tuning

Recently in for some fairly extensive modifications were this brace of VX220s.

The 2.2 underwent a Stage 1 supercharger conversion, an uprated fuel pump with 48L alloy fuel tank and rolling road set up.

The turbo model had a chargecooler system fitted, along with uprated fuel pump and uprated clutch, 80mm air flow meter and 495cc injectors, followed by a full rolling road mapping session, to complement the already fitted VXR turbo and full exhaust system.

VX220 Turbo

One of last week’s jobs; After a CSR clutch upgrade and the addition of the Courtenay Pro Alloy charge cooler kit, a mapping session was carried out to boost the power and torque on this VX220 Turbo. The car was already fitted with a 63.5mm exhaust system and had a VXR turbo unit with OE actuator. Power was increased to a manageable and useable 280bhp.

Another big power turbo conversion using the new V Band Cast Manifold.

New V Band Cast Manifold VX220 Turbo Conversion

Following the introduction of our V Band Cast Manifold with external wastegate, here is an example of afinished conversions and graph on a VX220 Turbo.

The manifold has been flow tested to 600bhp and the Tial V Band flanges are much more secure and allow for easier turbo fitment.

2.0 16v Turbo (Z20LET) VX220 finished in Coral Blue Pearlescent with a blue soft top roof.

This car is a One Owner car from new, registered on 26 September 2003 (53) and has covered just over 25,000 miles, has a full service history and is in all but immaculate showroom condition throughout. You will struggle to find a better example of this car. Standard features include ABS, Driver’s Airbag and Alloy Wheels.

The car also benefits from the addition of Paintshield stone chip protection film which as the pictures show is all but invisible. It has been fitted across the front clam and nose area, edges of the turbo ‘ears’, the door mirrors and the headlights for protection from stone damage, from which these cars can suffer very badly.

The car has been garaged overnight for its entire life when not in use.  It has not spent any time outdoors over the winters, and has spent the last 12 months off road (SORNed) and garaged.

The car has been regularly detailed (washed, clayed, polished) and the paintwork has been regularly waxed, as the pictures show.

This car was specified with the following factory fitted options:
Coral Blue Pearlescent Paint
Blue Hood/Soft Top
Remote Central Locking
Leather Seats, Door Cards and Centre Console
Blaupunkt Los Angeles MP72 Stereo Radio/CD/MP3 Player – Security Coded
Additional Front Tweeter Speakers
Passenger Side Footrest
VX220 Branded Floor Mats
Rear Stowage Net

Additional modifications to the vehicle are as follows:

Courtenay Sport Bespoke ECU Remap to 293 bhp and 335 lb ft torque
Full Stainess Steel Milltek Sports Exhaust System
Pro Alloy Charge Cooler System
Pro Alloy Enlarged Alloy Water Radiator
VXR (Astra Z20LEH) Turbo Charger
Uprated Actuator
Lightweight 5.6kg Billet Steel Flywheel
Fast Road Clutch (drives like OE)
Enlarged Plenum and Enlarged Hose
Enlarged Pro Alloy Intake Pipe
16 Groove Brake Discs All Round
Mintex M1144 Brake Pads All Round
Uprated Polyurethane Engine Mounts Front and Rear
Carbon Fibre Dash Panels and Door Escutcheons
Genuine VXR220 Matt Black Petrol Filler Cap and Surround
Boost Gauge
Colour Coded Rocker Cover
Matt Black (Painted) Windscreen Surround
Matt Black Opel Blitz (removal of the V grille allows more cold air through to the water radiators)
Paintshield Stonechip Protection Film over the front clam, headlight and door mirrors

The cost of getting a standard VX220 Turbo to this specification would be in excess of £8,000

This has to be one of the best examples of a VX220 Turbo around. You will struggle to find a cleaner, better looked after example. The car will have a new 12 Month MOT Test prior to sale, will be serviced and have the cambelt changed.

Both keys and remote key fobs are present, as is the security code card for the car, the book pack with full service history and previous MOT Test certificates and Tax Discs, the stereo front case and the original stereo SD security card. Private Plate is to be transferred off the car at time of sale.

Clear on HPI, No Outstanding Finance.

VX220 Turbo Health Check

We had a VX220 Turbo booked in the other week as the customer had reported that the car seemed to be holding back on track. He thought it might be a fuelling issue and asked us to carry out a health check on the rolling road, datalog the ecu to see what the current map was doing and report back.

The car was running a ‘Stage 2’ ecu remap and has a full 2.5″ exhaust system. After our initial datalogging rolling road session we received a bit of a shock when we plotted the results ……..
