    Some mods for the new car....

    Looking at getting the following possibly:

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FITS-ASTRA-H-1...QQcmdZViewItem

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/FITS-ASTRA-H-M...QQcmdZViewItem

    Along with a tuning box or remap and some induction mods.

    What I be likely to see from these mods on a 1.9 (150) diesel?

    be hard to say what gains you could get, some people have only had about 15bhp from a tuning box others have had nearly 50bhp so with the other mods could vary even more, would make a nice gain though,
    with adding the exhaust mods i would say a remap would be a better bet over a tuning box though to make the most from all the mods

    * I dont want this to turn into a remap V's tuning box thread though, i have a box and think they are great, just with other mods a remap would be a better idea.

    I have thinking of a tuning box, but I have heard mixed reviews some people say its great and others say it damages the engine.

    tailpipe can be cleaned and its shiney because its stainless steel so will last for a very long time,
