    Improving BHP, Help Please?

    I have recently bought a R reg Astra 1.6 8v, I have had two astras before both were the 16v versions and felt much quicker...

    What is best way to improve BHP of the 8V version or is it not worth it...In past have added new air filters, exhausts etc, this gave a little more poke but not sure what to do with this one...

    Any help is very much appreciated...

    as far as i know, what you suggested is about it without going OTT. sports cat exhaust system or something of the likes and improving the inlet system too with either a better panel filter and so on. See Geordiebandit, he mite respond here anyway, he had a good play with the X16SZR SPi and said it was quite nippy "in the right hands" as he put it
