    There are How To's on the forum for removing the center console.

    To be honest mate, Don't remap the 1.6 8v engine, especially with the limited mods that you have done, for the money it REALLY will not be worth it.

    hey cheers for that mate..
    does changing the exhaust make much of a difference? also is there any other perf mod that i could do on it?
    i think u should get some big modded wheels on urs like.. they would really stand out ..
    im getting dials, doorcards and door sills changed to the same colour..
    got a body kit so saving up for that..
    cheers

    Yeah im hoping to get some alloys going on soon, its just money lol!

    Exhaust would give you a bit more freeflow , you'd notice it rev easier and a change in sound (obviously), not sure how much perf gains you'd see, but every little helps!

    The 1.6 8v engines arn't really worth the time and effort to modify, you'd have to spend LOTS to see any amazing gains. Just stick with exterior/ interior mods, your body kit sounds good, doorcards too!

    have a searcg on here mate for the how to guides, de-restrict your airbox, take the cone filter off, get a remus centre pipe and a backbox and itl breath better. thats bout it really. remaps are pants on our 8 valves!

    The cone filter was the biggest mistake I'd made on my car, drive like a sack of potatoes in the summer!
