    i have carried on with the mods

    fitted a brand new insignia VXR turbo ,

    new insignia set of injectors

    new front mounted intercooler

    new sparkplugs

    then when to MW Performance and had a Superchip stage 4 remap

    very please with the remap , but the clucth has started to slip

    so now need to put a new up rated clutch in it ,

    then it will be back to MWP for fine tuning , looking at about 350 bhp

    She will be an absolute beast when the new clutch is in place, and that's what I call an intercooler [emoji15]

    thanks guys ,
    hope to fit a new clutch on Saturday , and yes that's only 4 days before we go to Germany ,
    as for the rad even if I get the rad and that's a BIG IF , I will not fit it as its untested , but will fit it when we get back

    I am starting to take names for going down the strip at PVS lol
