    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Time to give the engine bay some loving...

    Well, as I am now on "garden leave" (being made redundant at the end of the month), I have a lot of spare time on my hands and am sitting around bored silly at home, so as I'm about to get a nice fat redundancy cheque, I thought I'd pre-empt a little bit of it and treat the car to some new hoses.

    I'm due to get my car rolling roaded again shortly to see if the replacement stage 3 map that Maptun have sent me has sorted out the issues I was having with the original one (it feels good) but figured before I did, I should get it as sorted as possible and make sure I had no boost leaks etc.

    So, a quick spin down to Neo Brothers this morning and I came back with this little lot.



    A full set of silicon hoses for water, turbo, intercooler, vacuum etc etc.

    Amy's got a hospital appointment this afternoon, so I have to go pick her up shortly and take her there so wont have time to do this today (probably), so this job starts tomorow. I plan to clean everything thoroughly under the bonnet including the throttle body and MAF. While I've got the water hoses out I also plan to flush the whole cooling system, looks like a fun day ahead tomorrow

    No, nothing to go to and it is worrying me a bit at the moment, but I have been there ten and a half years so leaving with a fair chunk that should keep us going for a few months after paying the credit cards off

    It's the kit for the 2.0T Saab which uses the same engine. The only difference is the black pipe which is an extra one required to extend one of the main hoses on the Vec variant of the engine.

    Did Neo Bros charge you for that black pipe or throw it in free as a goodwill gesture?
