    They prob wont fit it because they dont supply the part n all that, But they should be able to do it just depends if they will mate,

    You get intercooler on then?? regal tell you anymore about what maps to use and stuff??

            Cool might try it for few hours on mine because am defo going to get the cooler in the summer, am going to put the 70mm map on tho see what the diff is to the one am running the now, only about 5 bhp so unless map is totally different shouldnt be much in it.

                  Depends how long it takes to time it up, dont know how easy it is to slacken the cambelts on the vxr. Maybe 2 hours ish

                    I would be very tempted to go to a tuner who is well used to fitting hot cams.

                      I agree Vauxhall will not fit it as it is not a vauxhall part and as far as they are concerned they dont know anything about what its profile etc is.
                      go to Regal who sell the things and get it done right with the map adjustment that they have developed. Otherwise you will not get the car running correctly.

                        Personally I struggle to feel comfortable letting vauxhall change the oil on mine, let alone anything mechanical.

                        However, I've got no choice being as it needs a new gearbox under warranty!!

                        Ordered - Pure White Golf GTI on 18's (couldn't stomach paying for 19" tyres any more!)

                          Any mechanic could fit it, but as said I doubt vauxhall dealership would do it However I'd be sure that you have the correct map on once it's fitted otherwise the car could run lean due to increase in inlet opening at high RPM.
