    cold air intake

    hi. just wondering what people would recomend for a cold air intake system for an astra mk4 1.6?
    i was thinking about the pipercross 1 with a veccy C intake at the front?

    im wanting to get my car too 120bhp as cheap and easy as pos!
    i already have a cat back system.
    just wondering if this would finish it off too 120?
    any1 else recomend any other intake any better than this for nothing more than £300.
    thanks

    U aint gunna 20bhp of a Viper sorry m8.There good but they aint that good,lol. U could proberly find a standard box for 20quid (ish) few cars breaking on here (1.6,1.8,2.0 are the same & maybe 1.4 but not 100% on that 1),K&N or PiperX pannels 30-40 quid on Ebay & a Vecci C intake is about 15quid from VH. .

    but would that gain as much as the piper box?
    thanks

    Well....117bhp/131ftlbs torque from derestricting airbox, Vectra intake pipe, K&N panel filter and Cybox catback exhaust....on a Z16XE (1.6 16v) so it is feasible. 120bhp may well be pushing it a little mind...
