TP208 kit on a C20LET engine
Question: I have a Vauxhall Astra MK2 turbo, can I install a TP208 kit on my C20LET engine?

Answer: The TP208 kit could be used on an LET engine with our MBE9A4 ECU & an off the self LM9A4-FWD wiring harness with additional Boost sensor and Amal Valve with add in adaptor harness. It would then need to have rolling road time or dyno for mapping. The TP208 kit or throttle bodies included in the kit are only really worth fitting to the turbo engine once the engine has already been highly tuned. You would also require to have made a custom air box in order to contain the pressure before it is passed into the throttle bodies themselves

2.0L SBD Taper Throttle kit into a Astra GSI
Question: Is it possible to use one of your kits on a road car? I drive an Astra GSI 16v 2.0L with a 20xe engine in it and was wondering if your kits could be applied to my car with a Calibra turbo 6 speed box converted to front wheel drive?

Answer: There is no reason why most of the kits could not be fitted to your engine. The only problem that usually occurs as the output is increased, is that the gear ratios become unsuitable due to the fact that the engine will rev higher. For example, a 6 speed turbo box is normally designed for an engine that revs to 5,500 rpm where a 250 engine, could easily rev to 8,500 rpm.

New ECU for Multi-throttle Kit
Question: I have an Vauxhall Astra Mk 2 with a 20XE engine and a SBD 196 kit, I was told that the 912/v2a MBE system from the old kit is now outdated. Which system do I have to use now and can the custom loom be used with the new box?

Answer: The new type of ECU is the CAN based MBE9A4, if you look on the web site under Management systems, full details are shown there. You will need to change the wiring harness to accommodate this new ECU.
