    Question Whats my BHP

    Just wondering if anyone knows what BHP my car may be running roughly?
    Its a 1.8 16v (X18xe1) & has the following mods:
    • De-restricted airbox,
    • K&N pannel filter,
    • Vecci C air intake,
    • Lexmaul 4 branch manifold & De-cat,
    • BlueFlame S/S catback system.
    Only asking as iv been offered a 2.0 16v Eco engine (134bhp..factory) & was wondering weather its worth bothering or not,if i'll really be gaining much??

    Thanks in advance

    the xev is a rather shit engine mate so dont even waste ur time

    sounds like a nice healthy list of mods u got there (well not so healthy with regards the decat and the noctious fumes emitted) but get it on the rollers and find out if ur bothered with bullshit and bravado that comes with pubtalk and bhp figures
