    K&N as said above it was around 1500rpm mark for me. Plus they can be re-used and save some money in the long run.

    That's a standard feature on that engine. Used to pi** me right off on mine.

    Foot down, nothing, then whoar, here we go, 2 secs after you've pressed the throttle! Should have sued Vauxhall for whiplash!!!!

    Snowman, you got your ears on?
