    Vibration on idle and revving

    Yeah were goin with a dodgy solid flywheel that we used off the zafira gsi 🤔 got another used one on the way. Will have to out up with it untill after xmas now.. Life with a 5speed if proving to be better, the car pulls better and for longer and seems to be a bit better on fuel both round town and on motorway etc, ive got an issue woth either the turbo actuator or the recirc valve as the car sounds like a distressed turky when i lift off the gas

    Vectra 3.0 v6 cdti 2008

    Pretty straight forward.. What i do is remove the filter housing (fuel pipes need the coloured clips pushed in to release the pipes) Under filter housing and remove old filter, check for bits of crap and possibly metal particals.. (metal particals is a sure sign of the scv's breaking down) google 3.0cdti scv's for more info... Now fit the new filter and then fit the cap back on the housing. Do the bolt up tight by hind and then give it a tiny tweek with your rachet (dont over tighten it as it may crack the housing) Put the housing back in its slot and reconnect the fuel pipes.. Now you want to get someone in the car. while you crack of an injector pipe get the person to turn the car over for about 15 seconds while you have the injector cracked, after this time the air in the system should be released so do the injector back up and and it should fire up as your assistant will still be crankin the engine.. Goggle will have more info for you mate

    Vibration on idle and revving

    Hi gang! Ok so ove not got the f23 gearbox fitted to my z20ler sri 200 astra h.. When ibstart the car thw vibration through the cabin is really bad, and when i rev it its even worse.. Ive fitted the rear mount, the side mount, and the front mount for the gear for that from the f23 set up as the engine didnt sit straight in the bay.. Anyway the mk4 2.0 gsi turbo cars dont vibrate like this so why does mine 🤔 i know mine was dmf and now has a solid flywheel but ive done many dmf to smf conversions and ne er experienced anything like it before

    Got myself an Sri200 + with z20ler

    Hopefully this car will be back on the road tomorrow, just waiting on a new downpipe to cat clamp.. Got vibration goin on to so that needs investigating once i can drive it

    Yes you can get power out of them, its just the reliability goes out the window regarding the not so reliable fuel pump used.. You can run 19 inch astra/vectra vxr ronals or snowflakes on your current set uo with no issues. Straigt through pipe with twin rear back box deletes sound awesome Search ebay for hofman race pipes and back box deletes for the vectra

    Hi Andy welcome to the club.. I love a v6 cdti veccy or siggy 🙂 google tuning y30dt or z30dt. Options are very limited due to a crap oem fuel pump limiting you in evwry way possible.. Ive got a dtuk crd2 tuning box on mine. Throws it in limp mode occasionally but it goes with a flick of the key.. I looked in to maps and stuff but just didnt seem worth all the agro or expense dispite how much i love my signum, its running just over 200 hl now with a bucket load of torque to keep me smiling and annoy bmw and audi drivers 😄 this is why i set about on the handling was so i can corner faster 🙂

    Changedthe cars drive and handling dramatically.. Im quite anal when it comes to suspension and setups along with alignment, like my cara to be nice and sharp and responsive on the turn 🙂 the grip is amazing too. The spax i have has 28 settings which makes fine tuning it to my taste very easy

    Because i want too 😄 i like to drive my cars and have fun with them. For a massive bus my siggy feels like a smaller hatchback bootin it about the lanes etc. Sat in a set of 19" vxr ronals it looks the biz too

    Nice mate. Ive got a 3.0 v6 cdti elite signum :).. Had mine 3 years. Lucky for me im a mechanic so ive only got to worry about parts cost.. Car wise all parts are normal vectra parts and easy to find and fix. Engine parts become a but tricky to sorce but Lithuania has all sorts! Its the labour you need to keep an eye on, due to lack of room a lot has to be removed to access items like scv's cambelt etc.. The watwr pump has gone on mine. Luckily the pump does not run off the cambelt though, still a pig to change.. I may break mine for parts yet so keep an eye out, especially if you want a decent suspension set up for yours
