    What is the year and mileage on the car.

    Making the car breathing more cool air is your best bet.

    De Restrict the air box and add a performance filter.
    Change the inlet pipe for a Vectra C one as it is bigger.
    Give the car a good service.
    Clean the throttle body and Ecovalue.
    Get the car remapped, wont add that much power or torque but will make the car a smoother driver.

    GO faster strips seem to give its drivers around where I live the belief that they can hit 0-60 in 2 secs in their 1L Micra's.

    TBH mate i wouldnt be throwing too much cash at it, maybe an induction kit n back box to make it sound faster at the most.

    Concentrate on havin it maintained well, and practice on your starting off the line if you wanna 'smoke' your friends. Cant beat a good start.

    An AOC sticker will give 5 bhp and 10 lbs/ft torque easy
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    Not much you can do really mate, ive got the 1.6 16v sxi on a 53 plate and all ive done is Vectra c intake, de-restrict airbox, k&n panel filter, remus center section, magnex back box, uprated spark plugs and decent oil. Tiny bit of a change, prob end up getting some cams and a remap then leave it as that!

    First thing to do is check whether your insurance will allow you to do anything to your car, and it they do how much will it cost you.
