    Default 2.8T Elite Vectra

    As another option here keeping the faith spotted MadamVectra's post about an Elite 2.8T in.

    Isn't this the same engine as the VXR?

    Same power?

    Just a softer ride?

    Cheers in advance

    Well the VXR has a 2.8T V6 24v with 255bhp i think, so id assume so.

    The only thing with the elite is that they usually have an auto gear box, so maybe thet would slow it down. its round about the same price as a VXR hatch anyway though.

    Just had a look on the VX website and the 2.8T elite is only pushing out 230bhp @ 5500rpm. so a little less power.

    I wonder how long it would be before you stuck a VXR bodykit on it.

    good luck finding your new car matey!

    The VXR is a "tweaked" standard 2.8T V6 which is found in the Elite.

    It's in the same vain of the old GSi B's where they were sent to MSD for "Tweaking"! lol.

    As said the Elite has the same engine but de-tuned to 230ps (a quick remap would push power back up). Only thing with the Elite is that it only comes with an Auto (Easytronic) on the 2.8T, which isnt everyone cup of tea. Depends what your looking for really, theres not a lot of differance price wise between that and the VXR (£485) but there is a bit of spec differance.

    I saw a Green Vectra few days ago, it was an Elite 2.8T.
    It looked very nice, it had everything, the thing that i liked more was the Cream Leather Interior
