New to the forums and new Vauxhall owner.
I got myself a Mk4 1.7DTI Sportive van recently, really like the feel of the car and am glad i got the nice seats. I've been thinking about a list of things i want to do to it and wanted to run it by some people in the know. Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Firstly, tyres. Was thinking Eagle F1's, the car came with 15" 195 wheels but i was thinking about upgradeing. What size wheels would the car handle best on without lowering it?
If i did lower it, what is the best ride height and wheel match to achieve maximum grip?
Will be carrying out the list in order unless i change my mind about something.

Does anyone know if a Dti will pass its MOT with a De-cat? Also will a Backbox just make it sound tinny and nasty or would it sound nice with the decat. Anyone know of any good intercoolers that i could get from a scrappy and bolt on in the old ones place? Is there anything else i'm missing, like fuel pumps, uprated glow plugs etc.
Celtc tuning qoutes the car to be at 115 with a remap so i'm hoping with all this to reach around 140-150BHP mark with this setup.
