    For the money, not really, a turbo will only boost as much as you tell it to. if your going to get a custom map on it them maybe if your going to run really high boost but be careful you dont over do it. if your willing to spend the money for a vxr turbo you might as well get yours upgraded or a hybrid unit, will function much better as dont forget the vxr turbo is much bigger and may create to much lag

    why not just get a bsr stage 1-3 done will still prob be cheaper than a new turbo and you will love the power gain's

    I would have thought he's on about the 2.0T VXR unit on the Astra for a straight swap for his 2.0T Net unit.

    Like a twin-turbo setup but in one unit. Spools up as quickly as a small turbo, and has the bigger output of a large one.

    I think...
