    Default We should consider ourselves lucky....

    I was at the 'Ford Mondeo Mania' show last Sunday (with my mate, as he owns a Mondeo ) and I got chatting to some Focus ST owners. Very Very nice cars.

    Anyways, one chap had a 330 BHP conversion with 536 NM torque and was explaining that it was a tricky proceedure due to potential bolt sheering etc... but anyways, without going into detail.... he then told me how much it costs for a 330 BHP conversion.....







    £5,700 !!



    Even if you want the lesser 315 BHP and 521 NM kit... that still costs £3,500 !!



    So I just felt that Vauxhall did us a favour with remaps costing around £550 to get 305 BHP and 560 NM out of the VXR Vectra.... nice one ..... its a bargain

    EDIT: and another chap told me that a couple of the 330 BHP conversions had 'failed' !! - as it stressed the engine too far !!

    and the ST uses sooooooo much fuel whilst doing it it makes the VXR look like it doesn't have a drinking problem (the one I had as as hire managed a whole 18mpg!!!!)
