    Vehicle : Insignia CDTi SRi NAV 160

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : A20DTH

    Year : 2009

    Mileage : 88000

    Default What can I do with my 1.8?

    Hi all,

    I have an SXi1.8 petrol. I have already fitted a K and N Cone and twin exhaust system. Anything else worthwhile doing, engine remap? Or should I just go and a get a 1.9 Diesel?

    What have any of you done out there to your 1.8 to improve the peformance?

    Turbo conversion will set you back 4k, I've got a few things I'll be doing to my 1.8 but not too sure how they'll turn out yet but we'll see

    All I have done is fit ITG foam panel filter & full Powerflow stainless system from cat back

    Good enough for what I want, I don't expect much in the way of power gains with the 1.8 engine.
