    Default Who has the highest mileage modified car?

    Just wondering what mileage modded cars are running at present.

    I am talking engine mods such as, remaps, boxes, exhausts, turbo upgrades etc etc.

    Mine is an 05 Reg with 63.5K on the clock.

    Also a 2005MY 133K miles and I only fit OE parts, absolutely no modifications here
    Well, apart from changing from Goodyear NCT5 215/50R17 95W tyres to Goodyear 225/45R17 94Y
    I just replace parts as they wear out
    Most recently new front springs and shocks, what a difference

    My wifes old Astra 120 managed 80k miles before it all went wrong... DMF, Clutch, Turbo x4, intercooler, alternator etc all went within a few months... and so it was sold for a vxr...

    Oh and it was tuned to the hilt putting out 180 bhp from that engine on an EDS map..

    Come to think of it all Vauxhalls I have owned have gone bank one way or another arround the 80k mark... which is worrying considering the Vectra just turned 80k last week...

    Vehicle : 3.2 gsi

    Trim : gsi

    Engine : 3200

    Year : 2003

    Default

    My GSi has done a whopping 121k. It had done 114k when i had it remapped last year. The guy at Hi-Tech Motorsports said when he remapped it on the vec vs mondeo day, it sounded sweet as a nut and was nice to see a vec without a fault on it! Made my day did that lol. Think you had left by then hadn't you? As i was the last remap of the day.

    I've had trouble free running except a crank sensor and a couple of new tyres since i bought the car on 100k, everything else i have changed have been for modding purposes such as the springs etc
