Mm Pontypridd, not far from me👍
Car was from Hutchins Vauxhall Centre, which used to be a main dealer. There were quite a few Welsh voices heard around the cars at the auction, and I already knew the owner having supplied him 2 service kits for his Lotus Carlton the week before that was auctioned off last year.

Thanks, although an estate would have been more practical for the family, I couldn't resist this.

I had a little run out in the MV6 this evening, and we're starting to bond already. My son describes it as a sleeper, and that's the way I like it. It has a powerflow stainless exhaust fitted by Welsh Coast Customs, which I was a bit worried about, but it's not too intrusive and quite a nice fit.  It's a little embarrassing not having my own company's product on my car, but I'll have to live with it for now, and it will stay until I have enough time to develop something a little better myself. We did make some very nice tubular headers years ago for one of the V6 Vectra challenge cars that ran on LPG, and the inline engine makes it much easier to fit something nice than the transverse Vectra. I remember that car had a reputation as the nicest sounding car on the grid and it was much quicker than the standard petrol cars too. ;)

If you get to be in need of a trusted independent to work on it,then I'd say Serek[S.O.S.automotive]would be worth getting in contact with.He's a member on here and has many recommendations from forum members :y

Thanks, second recommendation for Serek, and I've already asked him for prices to service the MV6.

Nice looking barge,, first port of call for air-conditioning is the condenser. Then check the pipes that run under battery box, then compressor. 

Keep an eye on the for sale section. :y

Thanks BigGriffin, actually an MV6 estate would have been a more useful purchase ;) But at least now you all know who started the upward trend in Omega prices :)
as seen in last week's Autocar magazine no less!!

Welcome to OOF!

I have a pair of cylinder heads from one of the Vectra V6 Challenge cars (apparently) was that a bit of a one off or are/were you involved regularly in Vauxhall Motorsport/888/Swindon?

Msd in MK did the vectra challenge cars,..

Chuck 4g cams in them, and put em on yours, if you have the ECU, try changing the chips over too.

We did exhausts for 6 special 3 litre Vectra road cars that MSD built, and then made tubular manifolds for one of the Challenge cars that ran on LPG that Swindon were involvedin. I'd love to build some for the Omega if I get time. It will much easier than on the transverse engined Vectra.

think it was mentioned on another thread

Beautiful Omega, seen it on the Autobhanstormers website. What was the story on the MK2 SRi 130 in the back ground in one of those photos of your car?
