    Default Whatever happend to the 212bhp twin turbo

    Found a report earlier, A report on a motor show from 2003, Anyone know why this engine a 1.9cdti twin turbo producing 212bhp never made into production on a veccy?..


    http://digiads.com.au/car-news/lates...005_12_21.html

    Some of the report:-
    This year´s Essen Motor-Show (November 28 to December 7, 2003) will host a spectacular world premiere. The Opel Performance Center (OPC) is presenting an ultra-sporty concept car based on the Vectra GTS. Featuring innovative twin-turbochargers, the 1.9-liter diesel produces 156 kW (212 hp) and peak torque of more than 400 Nm from as low as 1400 rpm. With this engine the Vectra OPC needs no more than 6.5 seconds to sprint from zero to 100 km/h. Top speed is limited electronically to 250 km/h, while fuel consumption in the European test cycle is only six liters per 100 kilometers. With this powerful yet economical, high-performance common-rail injection engine, Opel demonstrates again its renewed diesel expertise.

    Although its 180ps in the saabs and going to be 190 in the vecs - so i believe. On the saabs its marked as the 1.9 ttid or something like that.

    Yes, it is the 1.9Ttid. Saab got the twin turbo first as it had to discontinue its 'flagship' 3.0 Tid (same as Vectra 3.0 V6 CDTi ?) due to overheating/cooling problems, I believe.
