was racing a vts in my astra last nite. standing start at the lights, he just kept pulling away, no way was i gonna catch him. was this saxo tuned? or is this normal.

eventually caught up with the little bugger on the motorway, and it was only past 90mph when i showed him up, but needless to say, i am still V. angry!! help b4 i fall into a mindless state of depression.

Yes the Saxo will be a fair bit faster. Your Astra is probably only marginally quicker than my Corsa.

I doubt 30bhp is possible from these mods

An Astra GSi Turbo would nail a VTS to the floor before making it eat dust. But then again, we are comparing a hot supermini to a hot hatch.

Sorry to have to say this but a saxo vts with exhaust manifold and induction kit would probably be near 150 bhp, they respond very well to such mods.

Youi doubt, but its true. The 16v lumps respond very well to a good air filter unit and full exhaust system. I've seen many a saxo on the Rollers with these mods or similar (different makes) make 145-155bhp.
