    Same engine ad same running gear ss you say. There are a few options available as an upgrade, the limit is you bank balance.

    There's no 210 BHP version in the Vectra, just the 175 version, but the difference is mostly the ECU's map and the ancilliaries. There aren't any common problems with this engine, unless a previous owner has neglected oil changes, which could damage the turbo and/or the timing chain, but that's unlikely. A simple remap can take your BHP level to 245-ish, or you can start upgrading the components as well and get much more; but that might be a bit too much for the roofless body to take...

    £350 is a good starting point for a "stage 1".
