    Performance Mods Advice needed

    I have a 2000 Astra 1.8 SXI that is currently standard. I have about £500 to spend on performance mods and was wondering what would be the best options to go for? and what kind of gains I am likely to get? Cheers

    Not a lot for the 1.8 tbh as a chip is a waste of time. Try a cat back exhaust 7 de-restrict the airbox & put a decent panel filter in. from those bits you will get roughly 5-10 bhp max & still spend less than £400
