    X16XEL... what mods?

    looking for mods for the X16XEL as found in the mk3 Sport models...

    now I aren't too clued up on mk3s so forgive me if I'm sounding stupid but is it possible to enlarge the intake & derestrict the airbox the same as the mk4s?

    also is the airbox the same as the 1.6 16v mk4's? meaning it will also be the same as the airbox on my 2.0Di estate, and thus my panel filter will fit?

    what other mods can I do?
    NOW - Sapphire Black 3dr Astra G

    THEN - Glacier White 2.0Di Estate - 136bhp 1.6 Pineapple Yellow Mk3 - Flame Red 2.0Di Van - Chianti Red 1.8 Coupe - Star Silver 2.2 Zafira - Flame Red 2.2 Linea Rossa Coupe - Titan Gold 1.8 Coupe

    9 Years, 7 Astras, 1 Zafira, No Regrets.
