    From what I understand there's not alot to be had out of these withou tmaking them very unreliable. Rather than power why not look at improving handling and brakes. It wil make your vec faster and alot more fun! I'd look at springs/shocks and brakes depending on wat budget you're on. Other than that just bits like K&N panel filter, air box mod and maybe tart the styling up if that's your thing.

    If yours is a none direct then there's plenty that can be done, if its the direct however then not much, purely because the inlet manifold cant be removed and know one has done any work on the YH. Keep in mind though that its not worth tuning any of them in a vec C. To get 200bhp out of the SE (none direct) you need...... Cat back system (2.25), sports cat (300 cell for reliability, 200 can be a bit problematic on the 2.2) sports exhaust manifold (dbialis or piper), Cams (piper regrinds or US Comp Cams), 2.4 intake manifold (direct import from US or Courtenay Sport), derestricted air box with sports filter and at the very tail a good map to make it all work.

    thanks to all that replied. going to start off with the airbox mod and also the front pads need replacing as the light keeps coming on. so i'm going to look at an upgrade on the brakes also.
