right just ordered my c20xe conv kit from cossvaux.

what i need to know is :-

1) what type of new wheel bearings do i need (astra/cav/calibra/corsa/special)?
2) can i get away with using an astra GTE header tank instead of spending 150 ish on a spec 1?

not getting the engine in until another 5 weeks, after we've moved and settled into our new house in stonehouse, any1 from near there?

what about a strut brace after the conversion?
i would presume a gsi model due to the bar being slightly bent to allow clearance for the inlet mani, what u ppl think?

pvd do an MTech one which is designed for it failing that an ETech one for the corsa B fits nice enough and i personally think it makes hell of a difference
