One of the most powerful tuning packages for the Opel Astra hatchback comes from EDS Fahrzeugtechnik. Based on the Astra J Turbo, the car produces 360 bhp instead of the standard 180!

360 hp and a maximum torque of 480 Nm is a huge power for such a little car. It is also generally known as a recipe for chaos! To make sure it remains in check if not all, but most of the times they’ve equipped it with perforated brake discs in dimension of 356 x 32 mm with 8-piston calipers, and Schmidt Revolution 20-inch rims with Pirelli P.Zero 235/35ZR20 the front and 275/30ZR20 on the rear axle. These rims also look quite awesome.

But those are mere details really because that engine sits in  the middle like a giant anchovy on a mini pizza! The modifications are so deep and include Pressure reducing high-performance needle valve – 980 Euro, high-quality steel connecting rod – 550 Euro, HG Motorsport turbo manifold – 1200 Euro, EDS high-performance charge air cooler – 600 Euro, Garret GT28 turbocharger – 1000 Euro, 100 mm air-flow meter – 300 Euro, 550 cm3 injectors – 500 Euro, 70 mm down pipe with HJS 200CPSI Sport catalyst – 800 Euro, Friedrich Motorsport 70 mm stainless steel exhaust system – 800 Euro, 240 mm EDS Sport clutch kit – 1100 Euro and Quaife differential lock – 900 Euro plus engine adjustment by EDS Fahrzeugtechnik for 1000 Euros.
