    There is a good guide in the "how to section". Basically it is removing the 1/2 pipe from the bottom of the air box to allow more air in & the car to breath better.

    My car is still under warranty, so I'll be refitting the 1/2 pipe & the standard filter and remove the tuning box before I take it in for its service.

    Here is the link. http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=15122

    Should take you 20 - 30 minx max 1st time, and much less after that.

    Don't do what I did which was remove the screws in the airbox lid ( you only have to take then 1/2 way out until they go loose). I took mine out & lost one in the engine bay. Spent next hour under the car taking off the pannel under the engine to retrieve it!

    Beat me to it!

    Mine has been to the dealers a couple of times, the airbox has been removed by them but nothing has ever been said. My wiring loom on the common rail has been sliced open where the first wired in tuning box was fitted. Nothing said and all work covered under warranty.

    When you send payment (paypal) state what engine you have then otherwise you will wait until you receive an e-mail from them asking you for your engine details. If you do this it should be with you in 3 or 4 days. If you have already sent payment, e-mail them quoting the link to the auction and give them the details that way. HTH
