    What he says ^^^^ really. Start off by removing the pre-cat pipe with a de-cat pipe, nice little gain to be felt at around 4000 RPM.

    Enjoy the site

    Welcome to the site mate. Also de-restrict the airbox and add a performance filter.

    If you're after more power but without spending much at all, a remap will definately sort you out. Expect around 230-240bhp from a remap.

    Take the air box out the car and take the inner pipes out, be careful not to crack the box. Also you can put a larger front air intake on. I put the astra VXR on mine which didnt need any work done to it.
