    Default 1.8 power gains

    Iv'e got a 08 1.8 SRi and was wondering what the best and most cost effective ways to increase the power?

    I'm currently awaiting an email back from PDTuning regarding their sale on remaps

    any other ideas?

    cheers

    Awrite mate, I've got a 1.8 Sri too and as far as I know, there's not much you can do with our cars to give any real increase in hp, short of fitting a turbo or something daft like that! Not even sure a remap is gonna add that much either but for £199, it looks quite tempting... Air box mod, K&N filter, shorter VXR air intake and stainless sports exhaust seems like the only viable options for the 1.8!

    save your money on the K&N mate, when i had my 1.8 there was no noticible difference between the stock filter and the K&N, all that changed was a little bit more noise from the K&N
