done the same with mine,4 branch manifold and de cat pipe, part longlife exhaust(swansea branch very helpful),and part powerflow exhaust,but it is tad noisy inside car but sounds lovely from outside,but i am toying with putting decibel killers in back box just to quieten things a little
were u one of the 3 zaffy boys from this site that i met on the migweb meeting/runout @ sarn sunday 6th ?

New interior(Cost and Availibility permitting
Fix Rear O/S door electrics and retro fit electric windows

Alloys and 16" wheels
Drop the suspension approx 30mm if possible

i tinted my old zaffy ones myself it was soooooo easy, as long as you get a decent quality film and have a little patience, depending how money goes for me i may have a very tidy set of snowflakes up for sale in the next few month, also sold a set of used springs on ebay a couple of weeks ago for £20 they had been sat in my garage for a year since i sold my last bus, typical eh

Im new to turbos had plenty performance cars but always beenworried about the reliability of turbos so stayed clear, is the vxr turbo much better than the gsi, i heard you need a fitting kit and the actuator needs setting up???????????????????? im pretty good with cars but wouldnt have a clue about setting up a turbo.

I got a vxr turbo from a mate who works at vauxhall reading, yes u do need a new reculator i got mine from tx autosport and they gone the hard work and i just paid,you notice a huge boost difference with the turbo, if u dont want a new turbo go to a breakers yard or turbotechnics for a reconditioned low compressoin turbo. Cheers ray

When you do theVXR turbo conversion you should do the cdt airbox conversion aswell ,VXR mass airflow and VXR injectors .As for my own mods so far I have put a debadged grill on ,Team Heko wind deflectors, uprated the droplinks to metal ones and put some nice 6 piece mats in . On the to do list is a Oil Catch tank, get my front and rear brakes done, rear spoiler , smaller aerialand some sill protectors.
