    Mk4 Mods...

    Are there any Cheap performance mods that can be done?

    Just to gain the odd BHP here and there really, all cheap stuff - Can't afford the better stuff yet!

    Cheers

    veccy c pipe - about £12
    de-restrict airbox - £0
    uprated sparks - about £25

    would also help if we knew the engine size as well

    Sorry mate, its the 1.6 16v - X16XEL job..

    By De-restrict, you mean remove the pipes out from the inside?
    Or Drill it too?

    Where's a Veccy C pipe £12 also?

    and What Sparks are recommended?

    Cheers

    Suppose you'd need plugs and leads - They must do something..

    I wish mine was more Torquey tbh, its not very... Fast feeling, but then its petrol and slow..

    What i meant by derestricting the airbox is removing the pipes. I know and have heard of people drilling the box too, but that really doesn't make much of a difference.

    I put iridium sparks into my car, and saw my mpg going up (more efficient) and a bit more power. I ordered them from Opie oils.

    A vectra c (veccy c) intake pipe can be had from any Vauxhall garage, just remember to get an adaptor pipe

    Ah awesome - I didn't realise I needed an adapter pipe for it either?

    It'd be a right bogde if you left me to it! lol..

    Really your MPG went up with Iridium Plugs?
    Was the Performance any better, and the MPG noticable?

    Yeah was thinking eventually a Panel Filter with Veccy C Pipe - I already have De-restricted.

    Would a De-Cat do much too?

    I don't even know where the Cat is on this tbh..

    it felt smoother but at the same time more aggressive in the acceleration. I can't remember what my mpg was like before, but from a full tank, I see about 400miles (at quite aggressive driving)
