    Default Discreet Engine Mods

    Hi

    Being very new here and this only being my second Post (First was today asking for tyre advise)

    I have just got a 06 Face lifted Vectra 1.8 Life with the z18XE engine.

    What kind of little mods that are nice and discreet (ie: non visible but improve driveability) are there???

    I have a 1.8 VVT SRi and have done the air box mod. definately makes a difference. Seems to run a lot smoother.

    Also, as well as doing the airbox mod, get the K&N filter for it - makes a difference to smoothness and also economy!

    Cant believe the difference after the air box mod. Still need to diconnect the battery though so the readings reset.

    Have now done the airbox mod (standard filter though) and have noticed that there is a definately improved driveability and smoother throttle response.
