    Arrow Where to go next....

    I have a 1.8 16v (X18xe1) which has the following engine mods:
    • De-restricted airbox,
    • K&N pannel filter,
    • Vecci C air intake,
    • Lexmaul 4 branch manifold & De-cat,
    • BlueFlame S/S catback system.
    I was just wondering what would be the next things 2 do?I had thought about a Diblas inlet manifold but there abit pricey,lol.Im gutted i missed the 1's DaveCoupe sold earlier 2day,doubt i'll see another set 4 that price again!!

    Was thinking about some Piper fast road Cams & Venier pullys,followed by a remap.

    Cheers .

    Cams was my thoughtpath too..then remap...inlet manifold to me is giving you some top end bhp but perhaps at the loss of some lower down torque...if you don't lose torque then I think any gains might be negligible.

    I'm still keen to see a RR printout of an engine with the DBilas or similar intake manifold on with the engine remapped too if anyone knows of some?

    there will no doubt be an irmischer inlet available but its probably just as pricey if not more.

    i dont know if the 2 litre inlet would fit or even be any better if it did?

    My mind keeps changing bud .
    The thought of changing the whole engine..the hassle..the possible problems..the older engine etc,etc.. .

    My engines really good,no problems atall...EVER.Im only the third owner & the lad i had it off (my m8 ) had it 6 years with no probs.
    Plus i picked up a Lexmaul 4 branch S/S manifold for it CHEAP last week. .
