Paul Robinson’s Vauxhall Astra Pickup has not one but two Saab 2.3L engines making 500hp+ per engine! The engines are both stock internals with tubular manifolds, HX40/HX35 11cm Turbos, a twin charge cooler system and X3 AEM Fuel Pumps.
Both engines are bolted up to stock F23 gearboxes with open diffs and a 6 paddle clutch with uprated pressure plates. The rear engine does have nitrous but it hasn’t been switched on yet!! The current 1/4 mile PB is 10.2 at 148mph.
