    Tuning a Z18XER

    Hi all, new to AOC and new to an Astra (previously had a Nova, 2 Corsas) and have just brought a Astra H 1.8 VVT. I was wondering what tuning options I have? And if anyone has attempted this engine?

    Cheers

    Its not really worth it, you can do the simple breathing mods, exhaust system then get a remap. Or you could go the cams/intake manifold route but that is pretty costly. I've heard a decent panel filter, different air intake pipe if its like my vectra 1.8 VVT. I know on the vectra-c club people are getting an extra 12-20hp increase with the breather mods and exhaust/remap. It just makes the engine feel a bit 'perkier' in my opinion.
    Kind Regards,

    Dean
