    Going by your previous threads, you've got an 03 plate - if so then it's a Z18XE

    The engine cover is Black and silver (black around the throttle body and the cam cover) then its a X18 XE1

    Also you can check to see if its got a throttle cable, if so then its a X18XE1

    If the engine cover is all silver then its a Z18XE.

    Thouhg the later 1800s had a all black cover and were a totaly different shape to older 1800s

    the engine cover is all silver so i take it it is the z18xe so what kinda things should i do to upgrade on speed and styling?? had a vectra and overdone it out without even noticing so wanna go down the subtle route with this one

    Vecy c pipe and filter mods.

    Decent free flowing exhaust and a remap should see around 130-135 bhp for around £600.

    cheers for that, are there any side effects to getting a remap done?
