    Hi there

    Hi guys im new to the forum I bought an 99 astra 2.0 sri yesterday and so far im very impressed apart from the doddy temperature gauge and the car constantly blows in hot air, its still under warranty so no worries there. Ive heard alot of people talk about derestricting the airbox what does this mean?
    Thanks in advance

    hey and welcome to AOC mate, de-restrict the air box is basically making it let in more air, so that you will have a better performance and acceleration

    heres the guide on how to do it...

    you can also add a "vectra c" intake pipe which helps the air filter get more air....

    oh and adding a different air filter is better aswel, eg pipercross or k&n panel filter, these are cheap
    i hope this helps
