    Vehicle : Mokka

    Trim : SE - Orange Rock 's !!

    Engine : 1.7CDTi

    Year : 2014

    Start with a K&N or Pipercross airfilter, and do the Air Box Mod, as found in the How2 section.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...n-1-8-vvti-mod

    I found that the spark plugs on mine were worn out at 28K. Vauxhall say they should last 40K miles, what rubbish.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...ugs-On-1-8-VVT

    Cleaning out the Throttle Body also helps if the car has a high mileage.
    This is for a 2.2, but its similar on the 1.8vvt-i, except the TB is at the rear of the engine.

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...2SE-2-2-petrol-)

    Get a 4 wheel alignment from a garage that has Hunter equipment, that makes the car feel so much better on the road.

    Some people have changed the exhaust system, but i have'nt yet.

    Lastly join your local area group, most people are very willing to help.

    It gives you an extra 7BHP, but it's the torque too.. I think it helped a fair bit, it's certainly more fun to drive!
