Evo's Astra coupe 2.2 star silver

#81
I have to top the water up on a weekly basis on the corsa, oil allways stays the same and no mayo under the filler cap n no gunk in the expansion bottle

so im hopeing its just a leak but iv never seen any puddles.

but I am only talking a mug full a week so its got to be a small leak

Looks good, whens the spare charger going on?

It would be a shame to waste the map on your ecu. U could send the stars ecu for a base for the monster and fit the monsters ecu to the star.

makes total sence to me.
