Antara Gets A Make Over

Sticking with the Antara theme, now halfway through its initial life cycle, the Antara has had a makeover for 2011. The major, and most important changes, are mechanical rather than cosmetic. The first major change to be introduced is the introduction of a front-wheel drive model, sold in Exclusiv trim, you now no longer need to opt for a full four-wheel drive version. The next change is something the Antara has been crying out for in m opinion, and that is the introduction of a six-speed...

Total Vauxh

Donor engines can be fitted on the driveway between you and a couple of mates thanks to vast accumulated knowledge on...

Evolution

The Z20LET remained uncharged throughout its lifespan, with the only difference being the power outputs. The debate rages on the forums as to the exact figures, but the Coupe and SRi Turbo were reputed to have 190 bhp while the Astra GSi, Zafira GSi and VX o were nearer on hhp, although this was only due to revised engine management software. The standard turbo on the Z20LET is prone to failure on abused and higher mileage engines and it's not uncommon to find many examples with the later...

Nova 1816v

A cheap Nova Star and C18XE has allowed Ryan Fowler to build himself an affordable and fun track toy. Having always waited a Nova, Ryan Fowlpr bought this 1.2 'Star' model back in Ju.y 2009 with the intention of turning it into a track car. 'It was listed as spares or repair, and looked a bit rough around the edges, although it's solid 111 all the right places,' says Ryan. then set about stripping the car out as a hndgpt track toy, with the main aim being to have some fun in it. I already had...

Rawlins Vectra

Simon's Vectra made it into Total Vauxhall a few years ago, racing'm the LMA Championship at Cadwetl Park. Since then it's been radically improved, with Swindon-built 3.2 powerplant, Swindon cams, Jenvey throttle bodies, Omex ECU, ceramic-coated BTB equal-length manifolds, Quaife ATB and uprated clutch. Simon says, 'Swindon made the original 2.5 Challenge engines, so it was the natural place to take it. Originally it made 330 bhp but now it's running a bit richer and producing 305 bhp. The 3.2...

Opel Astra 200ts

Seeing as we're talking about engine swaps a lot this month, we thought it'd be good to look at the South Africa-only Opel Kadett and Astra 200tS. The pictures you see here are of ihe only example we know of to make it to the UK and we featured the car almost five ears ago hark in issup 55. Of course, hprp in the UK, there have seen a great deal of Mk3 Astras converted to run C20LET engines, but this is the only factory-built car to receive the powerplant aside from the Cavalier and Calibra...

Astravai

Dan's made good use of the interior of the broken Astra GSi. much but the Red Dot map is so progressive and drivable which means that sort of power is no problem. The most remarkable thing is the way it just keeps pulling right to the line, there's no massive hit of boost then nothing, it's just smooth power all the way and it sounds great too.' With the resultant power being the icing on the cake, you would assume that Dan is happy to sit back, polish the van and announce it as a job well...
