    the remap on a 1.6 is just not worth the money. it gives improved and smoother driving but only a 5/6 bhp increase at best. if you have not already done so then you would be better using the money to do the air inlet modification with the vectra'c' pipe and couple this with a decent cat back exhaust system

    all depends on whether you want stainless or mild steel. quite a few people on here go for cybox or GT3 etc, which are around £200. custom made systems to your own spec can be done for £250 - £300. you have to decide how loud you want to go (unresonated etc) and what tail design you want, then this will decide your final price

    Regal quote +10bhp on a remap for a standard Z16XE. Sounds a little high to me but never seen any evidence of the map myself.

    Catback and Vectra intake pipe should see you hit ~115bhp, a remap may push this above 120bhp if you're lucky.
