  6. IF SUCH A GOOD CAR

    I was wondering if such a great car? and it hasnt been around for a long time where do you get the second-hand engines? every person that does up a nova, astra or cavalier all stick in the same calibra turbo lump, you might say crashs but usally the engine gets wanked when you crash. also my next door neighbour has got one on a k plate (1993) and where he parks there is large oil stains on the road also rust on wheel archs and ive yet to hear a sweet engine there probably is nice examples out there. But for the same money and insurance there is plenty of better ones

    GREAT CAR!! I have one from 93, like you say, no problems with it. Probably your friend bought one in second hand, or doesnt take good care of the car. This car kicks ass of other that cost alot more, it was the first 4 seat car that had a 0,26 aerodinamique. There is alot of places where you can buy new and used parts for the Turbo Caly, and even specialized car dealears.

    not really the car bites looks like any other family car.
    what the hell is it doing on here.
     
  11. Re: Great car!

    This is not a family car, it's the best coupé ever produced by a European country. It really rocks, and it looks great, even after ten years. So shut you trap!!<!-- Signature -->

    Hi!

    Take a look at my car at www.calibradtm.myip.org

    ItŽs a Opel Calibra T 4x4 -96, I tuned and styled it myself, I think its the coolest Calibra T in Sweden.

    The server will be up and running to night.(I forget to start the server this morning)

    Wel i had never that much troubles at all with the car. And why in heavens name do you post such a thread in here? You really think i wil sell it cuz you say its crap? i think youre a bit jalous at youre neighbour...
     
  17. Re: IF SUCH A GOOD CAR

    This car is excellent. It's a cheap blend of performance, looks and comfort. i think it can be likend to the current 200SX/SILVIA
     
  18. Re: Great car!

    This car extremly sucks.
    Every Opel is only a small warm piece of shit.
    Just like VW's
     
  19. Re: Great car!

    I have a Calibra Turbo since november 92 and it rocks. It barely has 50.000 kilometers, since I want to keep it.

    I was wondering: do you know how big can the wheels be on this car? It comes with 16" ones, but I was wondering if I can reach 18".

    Also, I'd like to know if you have some advice on how to increase the engine power w/o making it weaker and less durable.

    Thanks in advance.

  22. Re: IF SUCH A GOOD CAR

    ive got a J plate astra GSi and i recently had a race with a caly turbo with a "quoted 230bhp" and if it did have that much then i feel sorry for him, my cars rated at 172bhp and there was less than a cars length in it upto 120mph, they are quick but the brakes are shockin and the handling isnt a lot better. easy to tune though and with bigger brakes and a set of lowering springs they can be pretty good cars, and if you are wondering, i lost the race after backing out at 142mph, he kept going.
     
  23. Re: IF SUCH A GOOD CAR

    For its time this car rocked and can still out drag many modern day cool cars that are all visual and nothing more
     
  24. Re: IF SUCH A GOOD CAR

    The read differential is a frail one, and so is the whole drivetrain. Other than that, it's a good car(allthough a car with these looks should be RWD).

    my father had a Chevy Calibra 2.0 16V, it's was the family's car that I most like....
