    I would say just full exhaust, fillter would be a start. Depends how much you want to spend as I don't know what's available for the 1800. High lift cams if you want to go a bit further.

    There isn't whole lot you can do for the 1.8 without spending lots of cash on engine hardware and remaps to suit.

    Not really worth the time, effort and money that 'may' make your 1.8 go like a 1.8 VVT. Spend your money on an X-Box and some driving games.

    N/A modern engines just aren't worth bothering with really. I wouldn't even waste my time on a K&N filter.

    I have the same engine.

    Will a remap make any difference? How much should you expect to pay for a remap on a 1.8?

    I'm pretty sure that up to 20bhp has been seen on the vvt engine, definatly worth looking into. However a panel filter and exhaust would be a good place to start and also help when you decide to get a remap
