    Silver 03 Astra SRi Turbo (SA)

    Hi all,

    New to the forums. Got an 03 Astra SRi Turbo. In good nick for its age.

    Already put a custom catback 2.5" system on it, otherwise all stock.

    Has an intermittent low boost issue, which I'm hoping a rbcs bypass will fix. Also has a knock somewhere on take off and stop, which I'm hoping is just a broken engine/gearbox mount. Yet to inspect...

    Future plans are a pod filter intake with crossover delete, rbcs bypass and alpine stereo with steering wheel controls. If I can iron out all the bugs, I will also grab a boost gauge and badgeless grill to make it stand out a bit more. Will upload pics if I do.

    It's a really fun car to drive, despite the above issues.

    Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to the forum mate.

    re your low boost issue, no light up on the dash indicating an error ? Check the actuator if its still wound up correctly and both nuts are secure.

    Welcome to yet another SA member.

    With the crossover delete, you'd probably be better off using a CDTI airbox instead of a pod filter. Pod filters usually suffer from bad heatsoaking, which kind of defeats the purpose of a cold air intake.

    BAHAHAHAHAHA! South is where its at!

    Also agree with chris, go with a cdti airbox, its a crossover delete box and avoids all the heatsoak which kills all the power in these engines.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    No dash lights coming up. I have no idea about the actuator. Sadly, I'm about as mechanically-minded as a pelican.
