    Most restrictive thing on the 1.8 is the intake manifold you can pick up a replica dbilas off ebay for about £300 but youll need a remap after fitting it cos your car wont run without it (20-30bhp for this mod+remap alone) regal do the real dbilas manifold and remap for about £1,100.

    I have a 1.8 coupe atm and all i have done so far is Vectra C mod with a k&N panel filter. Think im just gonna stick a catback on it and get a remap.

    The intake and exhauste manifolds are so exspensive, i'll prolly by a 2.0 T coupe before i get them done.

    not sure about spending that much cash on a 1.8, so the car wouldnt run at all with a replica inlet? think decat hi flow intake and a remap may be my limit, thanks for the advice

    The car will run, but it will idle like shit and occationally stall, cos the 1.8s use a variable length intake manifold the ECU cant compensate.

    A remap will sort it tho.
