Looking at getting a stage two head on, performance cams and possibly coilovers put on. I heard Angel was good but don't want to decide where to go until I'm absolutely sure where's reliable ??

Angel only do remapping, not head work. Give Mclennans a call.

You are better off ordering the coilovers yourself and getting them to fit.

Dastek in dalgety bay said they would supply and fit kw v2 coilovers for 1600 all in. To me that seems good as the cheapest kw v2 coilovers I have found cost 1200.

I bet we can find them cheaper somewhere and get them fitted for less too!

Hoff try motorsportworld...

V2's are 1,113.30 including VAT.

Then get Mclennans to fit.. will be cheaper than Dastek!

Cheers OperationAlfa I'll order them when the cheque clears from the tax man. only ever heard good reviews about the v2`s. I phoned mclennans about geting a quote today but the woman that answered didnt know what coilovers were so I'll try again tomorrow. Since I'm getting the coil-overs done anyway - is there any work that could be done to the suspension to improve the handling as well??

Wisbones top and bottom.

I have been hearing rave reviews about the Zeatek Z9 which you can order from Alfastumper in denmark..... Basically V2's with some other mods to make them better.. I'm ordering a set in the next few weeks. I would go for them if you can get them for the GTV.

Regarding Mclennans, talk to Stewart there..

They don't do the Z9 for a gtv but they do a Z10 kit which I'm thinking about getting. I know they're a bit dearer than the V2's but you get more height adjustment on the rear.
