    How to get the most out of 1.6 16v SXi

    Alright guys, I bought my second car the other week, a Astra G SXi 1.6 16v

    My other car was an Astra MK3 1.4i SPi.

    I donít know much about driving cars, as Iíve only just passed within a year.

    So just wondering what does the 16v like? to be driven at high revs, or does it like lower end revs?

    Anymore input would be good

    Thanks lads, Have a good Christmas

    i think the drop off point for power is around the 5600rpm mark

    first things first, de-restrict the air box and pop in a PVD pannel filter

    make it breath abit better and give it about 7bhp, all for £25

    there are loads of other mods out there for the 1.6 16v but they are more expensive

    what colour did you get? and any pics?

    It's just their own make of panel filter. they are made for them by pipercross i think but not sure

    if you give them a call they will know what panel filter you want

    Think I'll keep a keen eye on this topic and might do some work in the new year.

    How much noticable difference will 7bhp make?
