    lowering the compression on a vaux v6 is the only key really to run a charger succesfuly or run a very low psi which would not be much noticable to be fair.
    yes i know the problems with the v6s, i was talking about bmws straigh 6, the 2l 4 pots are great for turbo's, chargers are more ilusive, as they cost more than the turbo, turbo on vauxhalls are easy. best ever cheap mod for the v6 was the 3l inlet cams, second hand best bang for buk! very lazy engines though, with very heavy flys, tend to use the red top flywheels, but then they are crap at town driving!

    Yeh 3.0l omega cams were the best for the vectra 2.5 v6's. taking you to GSI spec. just under 200 bhp. and some nifty torque.

    Other best method was the omega 3.0/3.2 lumps as they were the exect same block just bigger bores. Taken you over 200 for the price of about 300 quid!. Usable on the stock 2.5 ecu and gearbox!
