    Default Couple of mods done today . . .

    Fitted the VXR gear lever assembly (all on my own I might add!), it was pretty straight forward once I worked a few things out. Test drove the car and goes into all gears fine. Feels like it is a shorter shaft compared to standard SRI? Anyway I like it, just need to look into the best price for a new insert and new leather gator as they are both worn.

    Also fitted a brand new K&N panel filter that I picked up for a good price. Again, straight forward once you have worked it all out. Car feels better for it but could be the placebo affect, who knows. The old standard one was dirty though. There was a lot of bits in the bottom of the air box so hoovered all them out.

    So list of mods is now: -

    - 4 x Irmscher door pins
    - VXR diffuser (brand new, in the shed waiting to be painted)
    - 18" XP2 alloy wheels
    - VXR gear knob
    - K&N panel filter.
    - Genuine Vauxhall boot liner
    - Genuine Vauxhall velour floor mats

    This is to a 3.0 V6 CDTi SRi hatch by the way. Next thing I am seriously considering is the DTUK tuning box, either green or CRD2. The torque is great but needs better acceleration, recent RR run shows only 167bhp (before K&N) and as a bog std engine not tuned. Should be 181bhp (184PS) in mine. Torque was about 325 though so all good there.
