Vauxhall 2.0L XE TP208bhp Kit
For 2.0 Litre 16V XE & LN Engine

Our 2.0L taper throttle kit was originally developed by Steve in 1994 for a customer running a privately funded Touring car, being very pleased with the results obtained, he decided to run the kit on a standard engine. The kit proved extremely efficient & as a direct replacement of the standard induction system gives an incredible 39% increase in power, provided a suitable exhaust system is used. It gives an almost road car like driving characteristics, very smooth & progressive and good all round driveability. It is extremely popular in the sprint, hillclimb, circuit & rally scene, selling in large numbers all around the world. Trevor Willis used this kit on his Westfield when he become the overall winner of 1996 & 1997 CCC Speed Championship.

This, our most popular kit, is the basis for all the other kits 2.0L XE taper range, so it's simple to increase the power of your engine output by upgrading this kit if you want to at a later date. It comes with a MBE ECU ready programmed & ready to use.

Fuel Injection Options

If you are anticipating upgrading the kit to 230bhp in the future, you may wish to choose to use the smaller high flow peco injectors, these require a different fuel rail which can be substituted as part of the kit instead of the standard rail. Alternatively if you wish to upgrade later, the fuel rail can be purchased separately.
