    remap + miltek


    and some decent sounds

    they are fast enough with a remap so no need for mega engine mods

    I probably wouldn't even remap, I would just get a miltek and a good sound system - basically Coo's car!

    For me it would be remap, precat replacement, Irmscher armrest and upgrade the hoses to silicon hoses or money towards a new sound system. The Exhaust I would do later when more funds are available (the full milltek is over 1K) and you have a choice of Milltek, Magnex or Scorpion. The Milltek is Vauxhall approved which TBH on an exhaust means diddly squat as most stainless steel exhaust are lifetime warrentied, so the playing field boils down to your personal preference.

    Although Regal have got a special on a remap phase1 and a Magenx exhaust for £1000, which could be just the ticket.

    Precat has to be a given imo. Best mod on any of these engines imo
    2.2 mod too ?? or TD airbox, small gain but cheap.

    Follow jam On Twitter
    Buy VXR go driving.

    Spend £1000 on redbull, hotels, petrol and maccys. Once money runs out return home having broken in your beloved car and come on astra sport telling stories of cars you beaten, corners you took just a little too fast and chavvy kids trying to burn you off at the lights in their 1.0 micras.
    Its a jam thing
