    much improved 2.2 :)

    fitted new air take, vectra c and de restricted airbox, k&n air filter on 2.2, what a unbelievable difference, any1 else experienced these gains, drives like a diff car, pulls at lower rev range.

    yup - why do u think most ppl do this mod!

    I havent done it but the majority of those who have say its a mod well worth doing. TBH its pretty obvious you're bound to get some gain whether it be a minor one or just an improvement in sound.

    good work fella! u got any more mods planned then
