    18's on a MK4 cabby no worries. I know of one running 20's with no arch work.

    As for GG's, your next steps can be any of these...
    Lexmaul 4-2-1 manifold and sports CAT
    Throttle bodies (dblias, SBD, ect)
    Remap
    Cams
    Head work

    Personally I'd be going in this order...
    Lexmaul manifold & sports cat
    Cams
    remap
    Throttle bodies
    Head work

    O' forgot to say IMO the ecotech valve stalls the air by creating drag. Those valves are useful on VW's if setup correctly but on Vauxhalls they do diddly.
    Its a jam thing
