Akeemking had a 1.7TD box and got his to 130mph, but that's with a 5200 rev limit

thats the plan, but i dont know if any one does an lsd for the diesel box, or if it will fit!! but im not too hot on the idea of a 150mph corsa!!

might be good, would limit the top end cos it's closer ratio but would accelerate faster




I think

Can you remove the sump plug for me and drain all the oil out of the engine? If not I can just drive over a big kerb at speed and remove the sump altogether, probably easier that way! :thumbs::lol:


Sump already leaks :lol:

you need an f28 with a 2l turb or it will rip the others to shreads.
