    Default VXR 2.8T v. Vectra 2.0T BSR stage 1.....

    ....am I right in thinking that a BSR stage 1 2.0 petrol turbo will do 95% of what a VXR 2.8T will do, performance-wise, use 25% less fuel and cost about 50% less?

    Not sure you would save 25% on fuel.

    To be honest with the cost of the various stages in the first place you might as well just buy the VXR...

    About 220 bhp with stage1 2.0T, against 280 bhp VXR....
    Probably not a hell of a lot in it 0-60 or so, but the VXR should leave 2.0T behind at 100 mph+.
    Not sure if anyone here has raced them (on a track), please enlighten if you have

    Your talking stage 4 to keep with a VXR in the 2.0T, stage 3 will maybe hold on for a while, but it'll soon be kicked to the weeds. Handling wise IMO the 2.0T is gonna be better if you spend a bit of cash sorting out the suspension, all ally engine is much lighter than a big V6 so cornering ability will be better IMO of course

    BTW I own a stage 3 2.0T.

    However, a 2.0T Stage 1 would happily keep up with my 2.8T Elite... For now...

    OK. Here's the new equation:

    A BSR Stage 1 Vectra (4500 + 500 for the box):
    will do 90% of what a 10000 quid VXR will do;
    minus the V6 rumble;
    may well handle better because of the reduced nose weight;
    and will use 20% less fuel....

    Am I getting nearer?

    The purchase prices are of approx. equivalent age and mileage (a bit rule of thumb but that's what's my research has thrown up!)
