    FAO : - all those with 16v g's

    on page 46 / 47 of the july edition of revs, issue 84.

    model: DBilas inlet manifold

    Vital Stats: cast alloy construction, full fitting instruction kit for vauxhall c*rsa, tigra and astra 16v engines.

    Price: £460

    revs reckons: imagine this totally sexy piece of metal sat in your engine bay. how stunning is that !!!( sorry lads you will have to look in revs for the pic) The 1.4 and 1.6 engines designed by vaux were so powerfull on their first release that they were outperforming their higher-spec engines, which meant that they had to be de-tuned. so, to get back a bit of that power that was lost in de-tuning, DBilas in conjunction with Regal Auto sport, have developed this gorgeous inlet manifold. it uses pipes that are sherter than the standard unit, and have textured internals to improve air/fuel mixture. Regal reckon that this unit will help you get maximum BHP from your engine. this tricky bit of kit comes with a full fitting kit and a super slick cast alloy cam cover to match.

    altered a little so it made sense, ( you know what revs are like, cant speak english an all that lol )


    so your views lads ???? is it worth the 460 sheets ?????????
    If at first you don't succeed . . . . . . CHEAT !!!!!

    Yeah, I reckon they are worth it. Can give up to 20bhp

    But, I'd check whether or not you need to pay extra to get the ecu set up.

    PVD sell the Lexmaul similar principle unit.
    Courtenay sell the Mantzel unit :


    I think for the bhp 'per buck' argument they're well worth it.
    Especially if combined with full exhaust, maybe next year :? .[/img]

    Apparently the Mantzel unit is shit hot. I'd definately go for one if I had the cash.

    You're talking 20 bhp straight off and it improves the power gains you'll get from other mod's aswell. Talk about value for money!
