    Thanks for the info guys.

    Once I've got some of the cosmetics out of the way I am gonna start thinking about performance mods although I don't know where to start with those. I've read a lot about derestricting the airbox and using a Vectra C air intake maybe this would be the best place to start?

    What kind of figures is it realistically possible to achieve from this engine?

    1.the airbox and using a Vectra C air intake is a good place to start
    2.exhaust system 5 to 10bhp more +sound nice and look nice £250ish to £300
    3.dbilas inlet manifold gives around 20 to 25bhp with out software just for that mod
    costs £460

    4.exhaust manifold £250 to £300
    but for now change the fuel filter no power but it will make if run better and costs £9 from vxl

    This shows the two pipe sets. You can see how much smaller the original one is.
