Hi guys and girls,
I'm new here. I am a final year Automotive Engineering student, looking for some information.
I don't actually have a VX220, but it is a car that I've had a thing for since the 2002 game Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2, in which the VX220 Turbo is one of the first cars you can drive. As a result of this childhood fondness, I was super excited whene my university assigned me the task of working on one for my final year project.
We are a racing team using a Vauxhall VX220 Turbo as our car. I have two questions:
1). Our engine blew up last year and needs a rebuild. I am trying to find forged racing pistons and con rods. Would anyone be able to recommend a good and relatively well priced place to look for them? Any product suggestions would come in handy.
2). I am also planning to make some custom channels inside the side vents. Would anyone be able to provide accurate dimensions for the vents, as I cannot find them anywhere online? The unfortunate problem is that the car is actually in another location having a backup engine mapped. As a result of this, obtaining accurate dimensions is exceedingly difficult.
Thank you for your help.
