    When you say which will fit do you mean upgrade or because yours doesn't have one which engine code is it , is it the isuzu? As for the dump valve you souls need an electronicaly activated one as you don't have a throttle body for the vac needed you will also need a Burberry baseball cap lol ( sorry couldn't resist)

    these mods will get you about 120BHP+
    do you have aircon if not you will have quite alot of room in the front down low so just measure what room you have and have a look on ebay think you can get em for about £60 new from china good quality aswell

    a decat wont make the sightest bit of differnce on a 1.7, and if its got high miles even more reason to keep it on, will only over spin your turbo and slowly wreck it.

    A decat DOES make a difference it enables the turbo to spin up quicker and it Improves performance
    just out of interest what is turbo overspin??
