EDS Motorsport has unveiled a new tuning package for the redesigned Opel Astra (J).
Designed to blow away the competition, the 1.6-liter turbo has been outfitted with a high-performance needle valve (�980), higher-quality connecting rods (�550), larger fuel injectors (�500), and an HG Motorsport turbo manifold (�1,200). Furthermore, the company installs a Garret GT28 turbocharger (�1,000), a custom intercooler (�600), a 100mm air-flow meter (�300), a 7mm downpipe (�800), and a stainless steel sport exhaust system (�800).
Thanks to all these tweaks, the engine produces 360 PS (265 kW / 355 hp) and 480 Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque - an increase of 180 PS (132 kW / 178 hp) and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft).
To help keep things in check, the car has also been equipped with a sport clutch (�1,100), a Quaife locking differential (�900) and a high-performance braking system with 356mm discs being clamped by eight-piston calipers (�2,000).
Last but not least, the Astra rides on 20-inch Schmidt Revolution wheels with Pirelli P.Zero tires (�3,200).
