    Default my engine rebuild (not vectra but still vauxhall)

    There is no chance in me tunning the vectra as its the everyday car and she would kill me,so i decided to put a fewpics up of my other vauxhalls engine, the engine is a astra gte engine c20xe that i have converted to a turbo.

    engine and block have both had alot of work done to them

    the block

    new mahle pistons 86.5mm, machined for lower compresion
    steelrods
    early gte crank (standard bearing size)
    all new bearings and pumps etc
    oil pump is fitted with sbd nylon release valve and steel pump gear
    under piston oil squirters
    cometic 1.9mm head gasket
    arp 2000 rod bolts
    arp head studs
    arp mains bolts
    arp flywheel bolts


    pistons fitted but before i painted the block silver



    block painted and arp mains fitted









    head

    ported and polished by gary poole
    chamber work to bring cc of head back to standard after skim
    xe inlet and exhuast cam
    vernier pullys
    double valve springs
    steel valve caps
    steel valve platforms
    1mm oversized wasted stem 1 piece inlet valves
    1mm oversized 1 piece exhaust valves
    bronze valve guides
    new valve seats

    only pic of the head




    and some of the random other bits

    ecu


    downpipe, external wastegate and manifold



    fitted




    the inlet on the turbo is 4'' just to give you an idea of size

    and here she is all fitted getting ready for a start up

    welllll on this engine pass lol

    last engine was 0-60 in low 5 high 4 , 0-100 in 9 1/2 mile 12.6 @121mph with a topspeed inside a mile from a standing start of around 160mph


    new engine should be faster bot much more thou as there aint a massive increase in power, just more power without nitrous and a stonger engine
