    Default FAO: 3.2's

    I wonder if some of you guys should look into the i35 project. Apparently it produced 308ps from the V6 lump -

    I don't know what exactly was done to it, but 308ps would be tempting surely.

    I've seen a blown V6 from VVOC, but on a 3.2??

    Interesting air intake path, but I wonder where they drive the blower from.. There's not a lot of space downstairs.

    Any other photo's alex??

    I found that pic via a general search in Google, but I'm sure there's others. I'll keep a look out.

    steve@irmscher.co.uk

    i suspect it will be like the i500 though and will only be avalable in left hand drive. I have article on it in a total vauxhall as the prototype was at PV a couple of years ago. I'll psot up what it says later on for you guys.

    Someone told me before that the Irmscher supercharger only available for left hand drive as the steering bits get in the way. That was about 12 months ago though and so may have changed.

    Just had a look at the article in TV on the supercharged 3.2 from irmscher. The rotrex is located where the steering column would go on a right hand drive car
    but pics are different to the ones alex has. i'm not going to post full article but a few stats for now.
    - Power 296 bhp(super unleaded) 304bhp (high octane)
    - Torque 272lbf.ft @ 400rpm
    - 0-60 6.5 secs (approx)
    - Top Speed 177 mph (approx)

    Transmission - standard factory F35i 5SR gearbox
    Brakes - front 355 x 32mm vented discs irmscher brembo callipers and gm pads rear 314 x 28mm discs with ATE calipers and gm pads

    This was an August 03 issue though as the i35 was thought up to celebrate irmschers 35th birthday so things may have moved on

    Irmscher did underrate these cars, as all of them had ~350PS. The German magazine "Autobild Test & Tuning" clocked the i35 in the Vectra C1 CC @ 283km/h (=176mph).

    Accerleration to 200km/h (~125mph) was improved by 13s over the standard 3.2 V6!!!!

    Btw: The car uses the stock engine software! However, it has a second PCM, that deals with the charger. So it is completely serviceable at an GM-dealer!
