Calibra 8V from Spain
« on: June 25, 2013, 15:16:56 PM »
Hello!, my name is Javier, I?m from Madrid, Spain, and I?m here to show you my calibra 8v from november 1991. This is my second calibra, first I had a c20xe year 1992 that breaks cam belt  :'(






Mods:
1-Leather from UK  ;D
2-Speedometer and oil-volt gauges, from UK too  ;D
3-Vectra b handles painted in white
4-Vogtland+bilstein
5-BBS RX 16" with 205/45/16 tires.
6-Fog lights in front with electric regulation.

And much more  ;)

PS: Sorry for my English  :D

No, it was done before bought it by the previous owner. But, that?s not problem in c20ne engine, if it breaks, valve don?t touch with piston.

It can do. There was a discussion about that recently.

In standard c20ne is not possible, it is non-interference. It could be, for example, with bad luck breaking cam belt and valve  spring at the same time, but in normal condition, it is theory and practically impossible  :D
