    Remapping a 1.8 will give you an extra 15bhp max. Stainless steel you may see a 1-2bhp if there are any actual gains m8 imho.

    as mine started as an elite ,so you could not see the tailpipe , this was why i had the rear bumper replaced witha sri one then put the vxr insert and had the exhaust done . was more for looks than power . though the car has been remaped now . as for the 1.8 regal do a remap for this .(John) wolfin on here had his done there and had a good result in the end .. khalid

    the vectra has gone , but not far away so ill still see it form time to time
