    Default were to start modding?

    Right so I've got myself a 05 Sri 150 vectra, were do I start modding and what mods are worth doing? Air/exhaust or just a remap? What bhp and torque can things take before they start to fail?

    Airbox mod (remove plastic trumpet, situated in the bottom of the box).
    Panel filter (Pipercross are good).
    Exhaust (MIJ).
    De-cat (MIJ).
    Remap (any reputable tuning company).

    Should see around 200 bhp and 340 ft/lb torque reliably. You will want to uprate the clutch though.

    Welcome by the way.

    Mine were: Airbox mod first up. Then carbon wrapped nearly everything in sight! Blue LED internal lights and boot. Still to come are pedals, mats and footwell lights and if it ever stops raining I'll be painting the calipers soon. Also plan to have the LEDs in all the switches changed soon too. Probably spray up the engine covers (airbox, batt lid etc etc).

    For me, removing the dealer advertising sticker from rear window is the very first mod that should be done.... that, then add your own key ring. The rest will just come to you, in your dreams fella
