    you'd be better getting rid of the induction kit and just change the air filter to a performance panel filter, induction kits are shyte on Astra's, especially in the cold weather!

    Then you'd be better getting the exhaust and any other engine mods you plan on doing before you get the chip!

    I've just derestriced mine and put a Pipercross Performance Panel Filter in it and it's totally changed the throttle response!! try that first!!

    would be better of putting a 2.0 litre in it for the money you would spend trying to get the same performance

    tbh I cant see you gaining any noticable performance without spending alot of cash ... IE: £1000+

    panel filters and derestricting doesnt do as much as some make out.
