    Default Ry's Arden Blue Astra VXR

    Following on from my dear old Power Red thread I thought it would best to knock a new thread up.

    This is VXRTricky's old motor.

    Car is a 60 plate with 37k

    Spec is very good.

    CD70 with Nav, cruise control, full heated leather, AFLs, Auto lights, Climate control, parking sensors, folding mirrors.

    Current Mods

    RARB painted yellow
    Full Remus turbo back system
    Forge Front mount Intercooler and Top hat.
    Turbosmart Actuator
    JS Performance Orange Direct Route and Breather Hoses
    AEM Cone Filter
    Klasen Inlet Manifold
    Ford ST Electric Orange Rocker Cover
    Rabbid Remap to Stage 3.5 297bhp (Capped due to Valve Float)
    MTEC short shifter
    Yellow stuff pads and braided lines
    TD 1.2 in Antracite
    SMD conversion in Blue and modded dial cards
    Kuro Design "DAP" Style Splitter
    Powerflex, front, right and gearbox engine mount inserts
    Bilstein B14 Coilovers

    Thanks to Mike aka VXRTricky this car is already pretty far along in terms of mods meaning future stuff to make it any faster will be expensive!

    Although I have a few plans for it in the not too distant future as I plan on keeping this one for a long time.

    Firstly I'm changing a fair few of the hoses in the engine bay and will be whipping the rocker cover off to be replaced with another painted or dipped one. Still deciding on colour schemes but near enough there.

    I will be adding a new turbo smart recirc I have in the garage soon

    Then it will be Coilovers

    APs or Bilstein B14 kit, choice will depend on availability of funds.

    I would also like to add a diff to this one.

    Stage 4 is a nice dream of mine. If I could make the funds available I would but that won't be before a set of K Sports!

    Any ways pics thought I'd take a few this morning whilst I was taking the Foam Ram air cone off and swapping for the trusty AEM!! The difference in the noise!!!

    Looks good with the Aem Ry

    Some good plans there. I did always want k sports but had to draw the line somewhere.

    You forgot Parking sensors, climate and folding mirrors

    That's a smashing car fella and looks in pretty good condition as well, love the colour as well, they should be all Arden Blue.

    It's in ridiculously good condition. Unsure about them all though. I'll miss the red one

    Had a day off today and with the wonders of the new DVLA web services I can finally feel like the car is mine. Private plate on!





    Still trying to get used to it. So strange after seeing it on a Red car all this time
