    My Insignia 2015 The Reaper

    Forum Key Rings
    So here is a new thread about my car. This is to be my diary of what I do.

    I’ve had it since November 2015 it was 11 months old. I’ve never modded a car in my life. My oldest friend has Unilateral aka Karl. He actively tried to get me to but never did. Until I got this girl.

    It’s a 2.0 cdti Sri in Carbon flash. Looks amazing clean turn around and it’s dirty already FFS.

    First thing I did HIDs 5500K made a huge difference.

    Second thing I did was a flat bottomed steering wheel love it !

    Third thing I did was the boot lights



    Forth thing I did was a remap.



    Fifth thing private plate courtesy of Mrs Sri for my 40th.

    I stopped there for a while, I was looking at a Focus ST3 tdci but I could justify the cost of a new car.

    Karl got a new car so I was a bit hmmm what to do he suggested I lower it. So after a year he suggested it again and I did.

    Sixth thing I did was lower my car an extra 15mm on some * vogland springs. These transformed the cars handling with no issues with curbs or speed bumps.

    Seventh thing I did was a Pipercross performance air filter.

    Now I joked with Karl about a hybrid turbo I actually had no intention of doing it just a dream. Then a friend of a friend had one. Never fitted. I told Karl he said do it, i don’t think he thought I would. But I did !

    Eighth thing I did was install a hybrid turbo and have a full custom map done this was a complex job but easier as my car had a map already and the turbo performed well before it’s map it was actually faster before the map but it was insane and the car would have blown up. Currently at 233bhp and 477nm but this is slightly low due a boost control is to be remedied.

    Ninth thing I did was install my custom footrest.

    Tenth thing I did was get a custom exhaust OEM look with GM valance

    My mate came in the car today and said when the new grill gets installed it’ll be black like the grim reaper so the car is now officially called the Reaper.

    I have the 321mm brake set up to install. I’m also looking at the rear setup 315mm I think. I also have the black facelift grill to go on also. I want a custom intercooler! Or need. I also want wheel spacers 20mm I think.

    This car is now the fastest thing I’ve owned. The map is tailored to me. 1st gear is pointless 2nd gear pulls now, its power delivery is great smooth for daily driving but revs to the red line in every gear. The torque on the motor way is awesome. It’s a true sleeper. I don’t need to go fast but oh boy can I ! The mpg is up also !

    Good mods you have done so far. Karl is a really good guy. He has done quite a few bits to my car for me and awaiting another visit so he can look at some lights I have.

    I also had his old 20ís of the insignia st he had.

    Yeah. Just goes to show how useless garages are. Had Pentas on first with 15 mm spacers. Had to have nuts cut back a bit. Changes to Karlís and bad wobble. Took to garage they blamed it on wheels buckled.

    I then counted the threads on each but after a while of racking my brains and asking karl and and noticed the wheel was slightly out. Nuts needed to be cut back just that little
    Bit more. Sorted!
