    Default VXR goes in for more power tomorrow.



    By the end of this 'busy' week, should have around 315 BHP and 400 - 410 Lb/ft torque....

    Will be interesting to see if it all works as its not quite VXR enough yet.... needs to simmer for a little bit longer....

    Oh trust me... I'm nowhere near the limits on this baby... (except the gearbox )

    This is a beast for sure....

    EDIT: ...and I'm talking with a lot of people (cross referencing) and these little modifications have the green light... Cool...

    good luck you must be made of money what you having done and do you know what the limits are on these engines before you need to start changing bigger parts i.e intercooler,internals,turbo etc
    i seen one on youtube with a claimed 400bhp(did look very quick though) but no mention of what mods was needed for the claimed 400bhp.

    I've spoken with Vauxhall and the VXR gearbox is rated to 400 NM.

    Not 400NM Peak... but 400NM constant.

    Other tuners are running the same gearbox with 670 NM and its fine. So, I'm not going anywhere near those figures.

    Treat it with respect and I should be fine...

    However, if the VXR gearbox blows up.... I'm gonna stick a 2.0 Turbo gearbox in instead.... even more POWER

    Mwwwaaaaahhhhaaaaaaaa
