    New to modifying!

    Hi all, I am new to this, so here it goes. I have an Astra H Turbo SRI and im looking to start modifying it, I have a Green Cotton panel filter and a VXR intake pipe installed recently but where do i go next before an eventual remap? Was thinking Courtaney silicone Hose pipe kit and either Eibach Pro-Kit or Sportline Springs, but which do i go for!!!???

    Help appreciated and thanks!!!

    firstly welcome to the site m8. and to the scottish region.

    if ur looking for power gains best would be precat and exhaust mods before a map.

    as for the springs im not to sure as i have coilovers so unsure on other types.. i tend to go with cheaper but not the cheapest! lol

    As far as I'm aware it's not too difficult. The best person to ask would be Glasgow_Stu as he's done his.
