    dont expect much from a 1600 unless you want to do an engine swap could try airbox box mods etc try the how to section http://www.astraownersclub.com/technical_guides.php

    I did the following to mine and it helped a lot:

    1) De-restricted airbox
    2) Veccy-C pipe. This was then followed by a similar mod to Ffoeg's dual Veccy-C pipe
    3) Performance exhaust system - cat back
    4) Shell V Power in the tank

    No idea what gains it got me, but the car definitely felt better. It pulled better and generally felt more responsive.
