    throttle body's

    Only thinking here out of curiosity, when i had my old escort the 1.8's would get more power from putting a 2ltr mondeo throttle body on it, is there any improvements on the astra 16v engines like this?

    no, it is the inlet manifold on the Astra that is restrictive and good gains can be had here by using a Dbilas manifold kit. only problem is that they ain't cheap
