    Default My 2.0 Turbo project thread

    After only 6 - 8 months of ownership with my Mondeo ST220 i was not overly impressed with the mpg or in fact overall performance so i decided to start looking for another car this is when i stumbled upon the car i have now which is a late 2005 facelift Vectra 2.0 Turbo sri.

    I picked it up from Derby with only 44000 on the clock and impeccable service history.

    Ok so after 10 months of ownership i have done quite a bit of work and have decided to do a progress thread, a diary of all my work and also my aim of where i will be taking this car.

    Here is a few pictures of how my car was when i got it.

    here is a list of my future mods for the next 2 years.

    Bilstein B12 kit ( Hopefully i will get this done at the Demon tweeks meet )

    Fit Powerflex front/rear arb bushes and uprated Saab droplinks

    19" BBS CH high power silver alloys

    Full leather custom retrim ( or a full leather Vxr interior )

    Window tints

    Full Vxr brakes upgrade painted RS Green

    Gearbox overall New DMF, release bearing and clutch.

    This is for the rest of this year.

    Here is the start of the next.

    Engine bay detailing

    Lots of saving then.....

    Maptun 300 bhp remap work.

    Hopefully all will go to plan and i should have a very nice Vectra that i will care for until the day it dies some may say it would be cheaper to buy a Vxr your probably right but i have gone to far with my money and mods to just buy a vxr
