    Disappointing!!!!

    I've only just found out (I'm a bit slow!!) that my Astra has only got 136bhp. I thought it was the 150 model but now, after closer inspection, I realise I've got the X20 XEV and not the C20.

    Gutted

    Mind you she holds her own against my mates french crap, 306 GTi-6

    So I want more power, how can I best get it?? Induction kit? Exhaust?

    You'll need cams then for that power increase. An exta 30-40bhp is gonna cost a fair bit aswell.

    Thought that

    So would it be Kent or Piper cams?? Would they make that much difference?? The std cams have pretty large nodes anyway, maybe not as light but not far off.
    But I'm no expert so could someone explain

    Phone someone like Courtenay or Regals. They will be able to advise better. They will also be able to give you a rough cost aswell

    nope

    very easy to install, done it my self and i aint a mechanic

    all you need to do is drill a hole on the inlet tube/hose fir the nozle to go into

    go to here and down load the fitting instructions and ask as many questions as you like on the bboard

    enjoy


    oh and you can run 50bhp on your car without up grading any other parts
