    if it was me, i'd naff that vec C intake pipe off and get either a dbilas one from regal or a promotasport one which is even bigger. as for outright power, i'd change your manifold to the Lexmaul manifol/manicat/catifold as it gives you about 22bhp straight away, then you wont have to worry about your exhaust at all as it will all have been changed. thats my next mod anyways. As for oil, i'd recommend Silkolene Pro S 5W-40, and get some iridium plugs. I've just had mine remapped and if all goes to plan i should be looking at 148-152 once its been run in, and thats just with exhaust and induction kit

    You know the one
