    you have quite a few choices, a remap will cost you about £300 and give you a max of 10% extra..

    for any more you'll be looking at a turbo conversion..budget around £3500 from Regal..

    really, there's not much you can economically do to a 1800 to give it a punchy performance.. but a decent airfilter and a performance exhaust sytem are all moves in the right direction..

    I don't expect to get much extra performance from the 1.8, so I don't go mad with it.
