  • 2nd Vxr, loving it, next mods??

    Picked up my new Vxr last night having sold my 1st one for a focus st3, biggest mistake ever, but really happy with the new one, it currently has:
    Fmic
    Uprated actuator
    Bigger plenum
    K&n filter
    Full Remus
    Quaife LSD
    Hoses
    Courtney stage 3
    I am happy with it at the mo but am just curious if there is anything I cam do to help support what I have etc, or that I need, I am already planning dap r's.. Any help appreciated..

          Part of me wishes I got an ST over the VXR after seeing my mate's ST-2. Curious to know why you don't like the ST.

                The st just felt as if it wasn't built very well, I had an st3 with dreamscience, not the best car I've driven, had problems with the dual mass.. Nothing else major though, back to the Vxr I only bought it last weekend, it is claimed Courtney stage 3, Only produces 273bhp with 327ftlb, in vauxhalls mag courtneys advert claims stage 3, 300-315 bhp? Am I missing anything? It's just I'm not over mechanically minded..

                  have you had it checked since you had it for BHP?

                  If so and it less i would take to CS to find out why it is low,

                      No havnt had it on the rollers yet, I will do soon, Courtney done all the work on the car, I have a reciept for stage 3 so cant see why it's so low? Dont get me wrong the printout is impressive and no flat spots..

                          Lol really I will try and get it back on the rollers ASAP then, it would make sense as my st was 270bhp and the astra feels quicker, the power is so kuche better in the Vxr aswell..
