Hi all, Newbie here.

Was not easy to say the least - but all on now and looking
I know now that I can leave my car in torrential rain over night without a shower cap/car cover in the knowledge that the engine bay is completely dry!
My VX will have no water/damp related problems in the engine bay as ALL electrical components inc the ECU, Throttle Sensor, Coilpacks, Sparks, etc etc are protected from water.
Here are some pics

Can you see those rubber/plastic things between the cover and the lid? that I used fro spacers??
Believe it or not they are door stops from B&Q!!!!
I cut them so that they filled the gap between the plate and the lid - I then used long screws to attach.
The other thing you need to do to make it fit differently from the VXT is for the end barrier to be fitted inside the lip - you can see in the pics.
Oh and you may have to reshape/bend the plate where it goes along the top of the engine, as space is very tight between the lid and the engine unlike the VXT. I had to roll out the edges as my Badass cover fouled it so I was unable to close the lid!!!! All sorted in a vice!
The part number from VXL you need is:-
Hope this help you guys as I know a few of you have corroded plugs/water soaked coilpacks - or may want to avoid those very problems.
It makes me laugh that VXL say that the 2.2 NA doesnt suffer with water ingress when obviously it does
Shame they couldnt modify the design of the VXT cover for the NA
Well at least there is an option now!
Any Q's just ask.

Got the ingress kit done under warranty from Saab/Vauxhall City after minimal persuasion for my N/a (bloke said it's not a problem on N/A until I showed him the spark plugs...) Shame they aren't as good with fixing the ongoing alarm problem...
I thought the kit only fitted the turbo?
