    Have you changed the exhaust and filter yet? That's what people tend to do first. Also, take a look in the technical section for the "how to" on de-ristricting the airbox.

    Other than that, you'll have to wait for people with more knowledge to reply!

    it all depends on how much your willing to throw at an engine, TBH it just isnt worth all the cash for the gains you get, i had an inlet plenum fitted to my old astra !.6 16v, i paid £1200 for the plenum (inlet manifold) and a superchip for an increase of 10bhp i also had a piper x viper kit and a cat back exhaust, standard the car ran 100bhp with all that kit on there it ran 115Bhp see what i mean just aint worth it at all

    Could do that, good luck finding one though, the Z20LETs are a bit hard to come by.
