Chevrolet Omega 2.0
« on: 13 March 2021, 18:45:32 »

Hello. Some days ago I signed up here and made a post on the Newbie Area. Now I'm presenting you all my Omega.
Just a reminder that a lot of Opels/Vauxhall were rebadged to Chevrolet here in south america (i belive because it was already a known and trusted brand and both were part of General Motors).  ???
About the car, I bought it about 1 month ago. It is a 1994 Omega GLS, the engine is the C20NE. With the stock engine it's not a fast car, but it runs pretty good. The car is not bad at all, just needs some love. :y











I already bought some parts for the car but not have installed yet. In special new headlights, new blinkers and new taillights. I bought a lot of engine parts as well to assure it's reliable, but I still have not intalled anything because I'm having some issues about the car documents. The issue is more about the pandemia than the document itself. Because of it a lot of departments are closed and that's why it's taking so long. Would be easy to solve it in normal times. :P













My goals with this car is to mount forged internals and turbocharge it, maybe swap to a 16v. These engines have a lot of potential to get good results with a turbo on it.

It's really good bodily and that was one of the biggest reason for me to get this car. It have never been crashed and the paint is still the original. I'm actually the third owner of this car, but the previous owner kept the car still for a long time in a open garage without the proper care and that's why the paint is burned on some spots.

It's working fine! All buttons are working. I will probably maintain it only for visual purposes because I plan on using a Pioneer with bluetooth device.

Looks like Spectral Blue Paint colour code: L270 / 24L  8)  8)
I had one (Vauxhall Carlton) that colour but with the NON cat 20SE engine .
I see you have the higher spec  "pencil beam" headlamps to fit  :)
very common for the glue to fail on the "blinker" lenses and loose them.
even new old stock lenses require extra fresh glue to retain the lens  ;)

Very nice car you have  :y

Thank you!
This car already has the higher specs headlights. I'm just going to change it because it's a little burned inside and it got some infiltration when it's rainy.
And thanks again for the tip for the "blinker" lenses. Mine are a pair of new old stock carellos that i have bought for the car. I'm going to do what you said to assure it will not fall. The "blinkers" that came in the car are from a parallel brand with poor quality as well the taillights are.
