Opel Omega 2.0i LS 1990 (turbo project)
« on: 01 April 2013, 17:02:54 »

Hello! Since my English is poor so I have chosen and use google translate as possible there are some typos, you need only regret it. I thought I could start a project thread of my Opel Omega. When I bought it it looked pretty ugly. Is not nothing nice car yet, but it comes with time :) Will also build C20NE turbo on it later, but first authenticate lowering and such in the registration document, and take a little rust on it so fun begins: D Here are a couple pictures of how it looked when I got it, and as it is now. Hope you understand what I have written hehe :) Will also replace interior, the interior from my old car, an Opel Omega 2.0i CLUB 1992, but there is chassi become so bad that I choose and use this chassis.




















Off with the old front and on with the new. Front of Omega A2














Set the original tinted taillights



Installed new exhaust  ;D



More coming soon :p

Haha I should have said it myself
Seats and everything will be switched to the slightly newer type of Omega (Carlton) Also have a new Omega maybe I should buy that car I will be using in while I fix this :) demonstrated I wonder and enable one of my old Opel . Here's a picture of it. Need some body work that well, but I have not the heart and throw the car. Some welding stations and wheel arches of this and a little paint work so it will be enough "good as new"


How it looked before. Have had this car for a while, has unfortunately been badly used.







And now it looks like this: (

Hehe :D thought and paint it up in the original color again. But it needs to be done with it is and straighten out some dents and welding rust, thought and welding new wheel arches in the morning, thought Opel Vectra A wheel arches, carved out some bows today on old vectraen to a buddy of mine today , need and patching them a little bit but I got that soon enough :) this car was the first car I had when I got the license, have had several cars before that too, but this car has left its mark on me so have not the heart and do something different one and fix it again. So bet this will be good, will come with the update tomorrow again, and can not wait and start :) really want and get it ready for summer again :p

Hello again! tonight we tried us some turbo construction and such in Omega, brand difference, but the car will not go as it should. Going cracked at 1 and 2 but 3 and above it seems that the vehicle cheating in a way. But not running more than 0.4 bar now because of the original engine and original nozzles and so on. Tonight we just tried us little. But anyone have any tips as to why it will not go as it should? Will and be completely honest, I have not much clue about turbo construction, has sovidt been away in it, but not much.
Here comes a film which hopefully explain some of the problem.

Hey, i had totally forgot about this post.
But long time no see. I did understand after i post this that this car dosen't goes under Omega in the UK, but i hope it's okey. I totally forgot to post and stuff  :-[
But yeah, the car did end up well, i was stupid enough to sell it for a good price, but not long after i sold it, it got crashed. Didn't finish up the turbo build in it, it got some problems when we tried it out, but i finished up the rest of the car, the car looked great at the end before i sold it. I also have 2 Omega's(Carlton) now, one project, a 1987, and a 1992 i use for my daily drive. Have tried some other cars after this post, have tried volvo v70, and have also owned a Omega 2.5 v6, but i sold that one becouse i had to many cars at that moment.
Both Carlton's i have now have i owned since summer 2015, but the 1987 haven't i got arround to start on yet, the plan was starting on it really soon when it's getting a bit hotter outside.
If it's okey, i will post updates on the cars i have now, if you guys are interested to follow my projects  ;D
My daily driver, i bought that for a cheap price, it had some rust, i welded it last winter, the most of it atleast, and the car was rolled with cheap paint, so it dosen't look so good. The plan for that is to take the rest of the rust, and paint it again, and the 1987(blue one), that im gonna fix up, and have it original. Here in norway, the prices on these cars have just gone up, and since it over 30 years old, it's cheap to have on the road, aatleast if it's original. The blue one is a look alike of my first Omega(carlton) that i owned, thats why i couldn't resist to buy it  :D

ut here is some pictures, here is also the last pictures of the orange one that i had that i took before i sold it., and some pictures of the cars i have now. The white, i rented it out to a TV show here in norway, thats why it has the stripes over it , since the paint is bad i let them do what they wanted with the car :P
