    Astra/Kadett MK2 project - El Batallas

    Hi there, I thought I already opened a thread for the car, but seems obvious I didn't... Anyway, since an engine swap is intended for this car, and it would be most likely a z22 unit, I think you all guys might like something different. Car has been with me since 2009, and only gave me lots of...

    Building a throttle bodied unit - personal experiences

    I was looking yesterday to Dbilas site, and discovered they have plenty of material for Z22's, which was a good surprise. I had the car thread prepared on sunday and then laptop got stuck... I lost it, so I need to prepare again, let's see if I can manage tonight.

    Z22SE Intake Air Temperature value / MAP pressure

    Those are normal values. Being in the 26-28 kPa's is fine.

    Z22SE Intake Air Temperature value / MAP pressure

    It's a very dependant factor. It's not unusual to have higher temperatures when measured with stopped vehicle, as there's not air flow through engine bay and all intake components got hotter than running conditions, especially if you waited for engine to be warmed up. Also, air speed through...

    Building a throttle bodied unit - personal experiences

    You have a good combo here! It's really interesting, I have som friends with combinations like this in F16's/F20's, but not in newer gearbox, that's cool!

    I was playing a little bit with infos and ratios and gears and different variants... Just to have summarized what's going on and compare with current gearbox... Also, was thinking about the possibility to get machined the front of an F18 bellhouse. First shot, it seems feasible, but it's...

    Building a throttle bodied unit - personal experiences

    To be honest, the car will be intended to be road "legal". And I say "legal", because in Spain, doing the kind of mods I'm doing is almost impossible to get homologated/you are like a criminal. Anyway, I'll find out the way to do it, I've got a couple of ideas. 4-5 years ago I was looking to an...

    Building a throttle bodied unit - personal experiences

    Thanks mate, I found your post some time ago, and to be honest, it was the trigger to start considering the Z22SE. I wasn't aware about bellhousing pattern, which is a hassle, as I wanted to keep the old F20, as there are many gearing combinations you can do and lot of stuff for those...

    Building a throttle bodied unit - personal experiences

    Hello all, As a mentioned in my introduction, I'm considering a Z22SE to move my oldie (Astra MK2) project. I have not many premises in this build, but there are a couple of them. One, is to go NA, two is going throttle bodied. I know forced induction is "bang per buck" winner, but it isn't my...
