    Fit a Vectra C inlet pipe (£12)

    Then look at getting a FOAM performance air filter.

    Lets it all breathe more easily.

    It's got to make a difference, if air can get into your engine easier/faster it will have a quicker pick-up.

    It may only be a 5bhp incease but for the sum of £12 it's probably the cheapest power gain per £.

    lol, not a problem.

    The title does say
    CHEAP
    It'll still be worth adding the Veccy intake.
