    Default MY 1.8 16v, 2002 needs just a bit more power.

    Hi guys, been driving this Veccy given to me by my dad. He's gone on to the 2.8T Vxr now.

    I want a bit more power from this, what's the best way about doing this??

    Dont bother, had the 1.8 sxi 2002 saloon and tried but unless u spend serious money £2k or more then you will not get very far. I put a K and N cone on and twin exhaust system on mine and it made very little difference. There are quite a few threads on this if u do a search. Most will end up saying get a 1.9 cdti

    Best trading it in for a 2.2 or a 2.0T.

    actually mate i looked further into it and it gives you an extra 40% more power so bhp plus 40% gives you 168 bhp im gonna get an engine conversion mate probably cheaper

    Hi guys, thanks for the advice. I do like these cars. As a 19yr old, not many people my age driving these. I will be trading in the 1.8LS and my Toyota Glanza V. I have shopped around and next week I will be getting Vectra 2.0T SRi Sat Nav Exterior Pack. In Ultra pearl white and sports springs. Wish me luck with INSURANCE.



    P.S I'm not allowed to try to get around the selling rules by adding things to this post!!!!!
