this will include.....

drivers side mount bracket.
gearbox mount spacer plate.
bolts to suit gear box mount.
modified hubs (so you can use astra gte shafts).
and throttle adaptor plate (like power cap) so you can use ecotech pipe to get rid of the bulky sfi box.

no mods are needed to the chassis mounts or bulk head with this kit, and all other bits you need can be sourced cheap from a scrap yard.

100 quid delivered!!!!!!


then you need a set of astra GTE shafts 50 max from a brakers

Dubious way of doing it as the short astra shaft is a tad too long and will bust bearuings in no time

you get what you pay for and the cheap wayy alwasy ends up more expensive

i ran the shafts for 8 months and where fine on the 2lt 16v
i am running standard Cav shafts on the V6 there fine
VauxGirl has been running them for 5 years and i think shes only had to do the barings once.
J100RSA has run standard shafts for ages
and iu bet alot of people on here are running standard shafts
again i know people who have had the proper 6 million pound shafts and have had Barings go in no time.
if you start with a good baring (proper GM one) then will last ya.

kits are off Mig

yeah i seen them kits, i wouldnt feel too confident fitting re drilled hubs on my conversion plus i know of ppl doing bearings regularly with the above set up so it all depends who you talk to. But mines been running around for nearly 3 yeas and i am happy with the reliability of the kit. Just engine reliability is a curretm issue
