Gearbox Mount Insert Astra G/H VXR & CDTi
22 Feb 2013, 13:12
||We identified a weakness in the gearbox mount (left hand side mount) on Astra H VXR and CDTi models, whereby these are prone to failure caused by splitting. Additionally for fast road and trackday use the ability to strengthen this factory mount will reduce its movement.
With Powerflex we have now produced an insert which compliments other uprated engine mounts and polyurethane inserts.
Inserts are an effective way of reducing engine movement, aiding power delivery and reducing damage to exhaust downpipes and other hoses and improving handling with less engine movement to unsettle a car during braking and cornering.
The gearbox insert fits Astra H 2.0 petrol turbo engines (Z20LEL, Z20LER), Astra H VXR (Z20LEH), Astra H 1.9 CDTi Models (Z19DTx) and Zafira B 2.0 Petrol Turbo (Z20LER), VXR (Z20LEH) and 1.9 CDTi (Z19DTx). Also suitable for Astra G Z20LET SRi.GSi Turbo and Zafira A Z20LET GSi Turbo
This mount is available in Yellow Material with a shore hardness of 70 for fast road use and light track use and in the new Black Material with a shore hardness of 95 (recommended only for race and dedicated trackday use)
£27.00 £24.00 (Yellow) and £30 £27 (Black Series)

Courtenay Sport Stage 1 ECU Remap
Exclusive Courtenay Sport Stage 1 Software Upgrade. Software customising whilst on our rolling road optimising fuelling, full boost and ignition maps, Full Power and Torque Graph Print Outs.
Our Stage 1 upgrade gives much better low end response combined with a smother and flatter torque curve, whilst at the top end we have managed to increase and sustain the power for longer. Alongside this you will also benefit from improved cruise fuel economy. We saw a peak power figure of 342.65 lb ft torque with power rising to 300.07 bhp. Our development car still has quite low miles so we would expect to see a few more bhp as the engine loosens further.
Like all our ECU upgrades the software is installed on your car whilst on our rolling road optimising fuelling, boost and Ignition maps. This enables us to see and rectify any underlying faults or problems and to ensure that the calibration is 100% accurate and safe for your car before handing it back over to you, along with the full power and torque print outs.
£565.00 including full map optimisation, datalogging and Rolling Road Set Up.

Focus RS Takes Maiden Win
5 Sep 2012, 17:20
Courtenay Sport Focus RS
The Production Touring Car Trophy championship held at Rockingham Motor Speedway over the weekend of September 1st and 2nd saw the race debut of the Courtenay Sport backed Focus RS, driven by 2010 and 2011 champion Adrian Churchill.
Built to a high standard by Mardi Gras Motorsport, the car features fully adjustable KW suspension, Alcon brakes and a bespoke race exhaust system from Milltek Sport, with final prep work and pre-season mapping carried out by Courtenay Sport.
After getting the car competitive during summer testing, but with no race data to draw upon, the Courtenay Sport backed car qualified in fourth place for its first race, in a highly competitive field. The race results for the weekend were a respectable fourth place in the first race, a non finish after contact from a competitor caused suspension damage and the car had to retire in the second race, and in the third and final race starting from the back of the grid (due to the non finish in race two) Adrian battled hard and came through the field to take the car to its maiden win.
Additional testing and development will be carried out over the coming months, with focus particularly on the chassis and set up.
A fantastic weekend all round and massive congratulations to the whole team, Adrian and to the team backers and sponsors.
