    Nice Mark. Is this for grass track racing? What mods have you done to the engine? Looks like twin carbs under the air box?

    Hello, names Giles my first car is and was a Vectra B 2.0l turbo vectra aint bad on insurance and love driving it seing all the 17/18's in nova's :D

    Fitted 2 nice big dual 15" subs in the back 1200 watt each, declared my alloys and exhaust manifold mods already even though they are not fitted yet still fun fun fun.

    Looking for some advice on induction and replacing the turbo with an aftermarket one.

    Re: Introduce yourself here

    remap and a chip are the same thing done in a different way - 1 envolves pulling the ECU apart and soldering in the chip and the other is done by uploading a new map via the diagnostic port.
    induction kit, exhaust, new cams, fuel pressure reg and remap should see you a decent amount on the 2.6.
    throttle bodies work well on the smaller vaux engines not sure about the bigger ones tho.
    you could also try and hunt done the 2.8 turbo outo the vec vxr or drop it down abit and fit the 2.0 turbo outo the calibra or the saab HOT
