    Sell it and get a gsi! On a serious note unless you want to spend a small fortune on it, you are pretty much stuck with air filter, exhaust, cams and chip, but all that will be least £500.

    go for the small modifications like mentioned but realistically you should save the money you would spend towards a higher engine astra!
    Not something you really wanna hear, but im in the same boat (1.6 twinport), done a few mods but also saving at the same time for a gsi

    These engines are actually pretty good once a bit of money is thrown at them

    A small thread I put up on another site...

    id do what im doing, get all you can out the 1.6, and when you have the doh, get a gsi or something similar
    ive done air filter/intake, exhaust etc, and its not much different, different engine or different car tbh!

    Yeah same, i have the 1.6 16v sxi twinport, all ive done is put a K & N filter in, bigger air intake, derestricted airbox, and im saving for a 1.8 sri

    The above seems to give it a bit more response on the throttle, and less flat in the low revs, nothing major though
