    Unhappy Performance issues on 1.8???

    Right then.....got the running issues sorted....fitted new ecu and it runs on 4 cylinders. Its a bit lumpy.....but it runs and goes.

    If you ask me its very slow for a 1.8. Its got the x18xe1 engine.
    Is this the 113bhp or the 123bhp?

    My mates 1.8 astra is much much quicker.....We have no fault codes either.

    Its had a new coil pack and spark plugs also.

    Any ideas?

    Check exhaust for restrictions/blow outs
    Yours will have the 113bhp

    10bhp! and 2 lbs/ft, It also has an egr valve where the 123 doesn't.

    113 goes ok though. Cat back exhaust and airbox mods should see an improvement too.
