690 rings a bell for standard iirc... Mv6 is - 15(675) and Eibachs - 30(660)... Also should be the same both ends :y

So front is pretty much where it will be with the Eibachs fitted. Thicker spring pads don't exist for the fronts.

They're potentially the same, but your link doesn't give spring dimensions.

Save the six quid and buy the ones I linked to :y Decent seller, have used for several items over the years  :y
looking at both, the £65 ones are "Coil Spring With Constant Wire Diameter" the cheaper are wit pigtail ends ,as per carlton (which snap ,and is a fail mot wise)

the same problem with astra G estate , the newer "Coil Spring With Constant Wire Diameter"  don't loose the pigtails

plus the postage is quicker on the £65 ones  ;D

But thanks for your input DG  :)

She is a survivor, but when the commons kills her agreement its hard to see how she can cling on after that.  ???

5786cc......not 6 litres.

Not a capacity I'm familiar with. :)
The AMG fettling gives it another 100cc per cylinder along with a 50bhp increase over the stock 326 bhp. Same engine as the SL60 ;)

Don't give up on that astra just yet Terry   ;)
finding a corsa that has not been neglected could be a task
(women and learner driver cars)
with the sump off and cleaned ,you will see what your looking at  :y
If it where me , i'd just continue till the astra was sorted ,even if that was a head off,new rings rebuild (rings can be done engine in car ) parts are cheap ,rest of the car is sorted now anyway  :-\

Sorry for being simple 😂😂😂

So the car was MOTd in October of this year? Presumably failed on something/ some things. Youíve subsequently done said work. New MOT test this week and emissions fail plus the engine rattling?

When you do emissions it is then down to you as the tester to manually enter that failure on to the list of defects; the results arenít auto-uploaded. So irrespective of the lack of an emissions sheet it either passed on emissions or the tester omitted to input them as failure items on the refusal certificate 👍
Failed in October for horn ,eml on and rear disc condition.
had a fail sheet ,so test completed , no mention of emissions on the fail that Terry has said ,though the MOT station should have kept a copy of emission pass on record for 3 months ,even if it was not passed on with the Fail sheet :-\
 Looks like the 5w30 synthetic oil has stripped the sludge out the engine .causing problems  :P

what was it failing on emission wise this test Terry ? C0 or hydrocarbons ? did the tester abandon the test ? i.e no paperwork ?
CO. Occasionally the CO came within limits, but as tester kept trying to get all 3 parameters within bounds, the car got hot and began to rattle.End of test, end of car. On each attempt all the parameters went 'all over the shop', occasionally came near passing, but never made it.

This week or next I was planning to change the standard cams on my X25XE for four X30XE G cams that I've had in the garage for ages.

While I'm* under the bonnet and elbow-deep, would it be worth changing the exhaust manifolds for those from a Y26SE or Y32SE?
I've read here that they flow a little more freely and I can probably get some for this weekend/next. I'll be changing the cambelt, water pump and tensioner anyway

Opinions are gratefully received  :)

(and if anyone has any other pro tips for getting a little more power from an X25XE which is currently standard, I'm all ears :) )







*This may be someone with more mechanic skills than I have. We will see how it goes
