    How do i get more power

    Title kinda speaks for its self, astra coupe 1.8 16v, i got a k and n typhoon but as suggested by other members It may not have not been the best idea, regardless of whether it goes or not i was wondering what else would give me bang for my buck

    the k&n is not a bad filter, got a good smooth flow to the throttle body, just need to make sure there is a good air delivery to it. try it with no front air inlet pipe behind the grille.it may get more cold air into the engine bay that way, and as above, a good exhaust system
