    Throttle Response

    I know everyone may have a different suggestion but it jus maybe worth having them all in the same place!

    What does everyone think about how to improve throttle response? Really don't think mine is as good as it should or could be.

    Any ideas guys!?

    the best way to improve throttle response is to either do the panel filter+de-restrict airbox+veccy c mod or induction kit, coupled with exhaust mods. (straight through centre section, decat or sports cat, and less restrictive back box) that should help throttle response. Also make sure the throttle cable itself has the minimum amount of play in it. all contributes to quicker throttle response

    correct me if im wrong but didnt most astras after 2000 have the electronic throttle with no cable? my 2000 1.7dti had it and my 02 sri 1.8 has it. maybe your clutch riding a bit or is your filter clean? good luck

    yup as above....all Z designated engines - ie post 2000 or so have an electronic throttle control unlike the earlier x designated cable versions.

    so cable cant be a problem here - sorry cant think of any more things to consider at the mo. but good luck in getting it sorted
