    To get any greater power of get more horses out of your 1.8 wont be cheap at all. A remap would cost at least "£350 i think?!?! and that only get 10 or so BHP

    Try the cheap mod, de-restrict air box, and put veccy C intake on engine and you might notice slight difference, HTH section on the forums for this.

    Getting any great power out of 1.8 will not be cheap at all!

    20% more on a Z16XE (117bhp/131ftlbs) from catback exhaust, Vectra intake pipe and panel filter - de-restrict the airbox if you want, but it can do more harm than good. I'd expect to see 10bhp+ and some extra torque from the same mods on a Z18XE.
