    I'd go with vx or saab. Don't want to use a cheap little and it possible fail and that's a new engine.

    Hello Yaza01. Trust me on this don't go for aftermarket kits , the chain guides normally wear or snap .
    On my turboX went for genuine VX kit inc oil pump ( though on that model it was not necessary cos 2003-2006 suffered with that problem)
    Nick 150 knows his stuff and from the forum I work on they rate him very highly.
    Just to let you know the turboX is a Saab but uses the same engine as the Vauxhall 2.8 .

  6. Thanks Happypostie Thanked
