    Diesel Pipe Mod?

    Does anybody know if it is possible for me to do the diesel mod to a 1.8 astra where you use the vectra diesel intake pipe?

    yes it is possible, this is know as the air intake, with large scoop behind the grill.
    You want Vectra 1.9cdti air intake. Pretty much straight swap from your original air intake.

    There is also a How to guide on here for installation (iirc)
