V Band Cast Manifold Z20LEx
|For significant gains in performance above the OE Z20LEH K04 exhaust manifold, this new cast manifold offers an ideal solution. Developed in conjuncton with our German Tuning partner Klasen Motors, this manifold offers the OE durability of a cast manifold, unlike stainless steel tubular manifolds which are prone to cracking, has a high quality finish, is manufactured from high quality materials and has been flow tested to 600bhp, although Stephan has produced a 689PS conversion with the manifold. Features a Tial V-Band mounting flange for any suitable turbocharger plus external wastegate, again on a Tial V-Band flange. This can be capped if an internal wastegate option is required.
The V-Band flange provides better security of the turbocharger to the manifold, and is less prone to backing off unlike traditional 4 bolt garrett flanges, and also allows for the retention of the air conditioning system.
Prices - TBC
- D5S material with high nickel content
- Turbocharger and waste gate have V-band flanges
- Tial 44mm external wastegate (water cooling possible)

Courtenay Astra VXR Sport Maxx 2010
Courtenay Sport had a fantastic season last year in the Dunlop Sport Maxx Production Cup, where Adrian Churchill scooped the championship in his Courtenay tuned Astra VXR.
We are keen to build upon this success and promote an event with a track and motorsport theme to it and Total Vauxhall Live is the ideal platform.
Additionally with our continued support in the Dunlop Production Touring Car Trophy during 2011, we will be unable to attend Performance Vauxhall Show 2011 as this event clashes with the rounds being held at Thruxton. We will however, be offering special deals via our website, in the week leading up to PVS in order that customers can benefit even though we will not be in attendance.
We’re sure you’ll all agree that this is great news for Total Vauxhall Live. We’ll be updating you with all the latest event news via our website, our blog, Facebook and in Total Vauxhall magazine.
