    Default Bored...

    Dont think selling my gsi is an option as they appear to be worthless now probably due to the fuel prices so want to see if there is anything I can do give it a noticeable performance change for not too much cash?
    So far it just has a panel filter. I have done nothing with the exhaust due to not wanting more noise. Is there a performance exhaust with no extra noise? Is exhaust the way to go? Is a remap a waste of money?
    any ideas!?!

    gs13.2 has de-cated his, and gives a bit more poke but with not much extra noise, plus you will gain alot from a remap

    You need to spent a load of money to get good gains and then other things need doing like brakes. Best to get a VXR, yours has dropped but not as much as VXR.

    OK...

    Regal Autosport Remap +35BHP about 350 quid
    VXR intake from vx to shorten the intake distance +2 or 3 bhp 8 quid
    Iridium spark plugs from carsparkplugs.com +2 to +5 bhp about 7 each
    MIJ performance "quiet" stainless steel exhaust cat-back around +12bhp for about 350
    Set of High-Rise fast-road cams +15bhp £600+
    Nitrous Oxide kit from Wizards of NoS up to 150bhp £500 to £800
    Always use Shell V-Power Super Unleaded +~2bhp for a couple of quid a tank

    ... should be something for everyone in that lot, I just have the cams and Nos to go and currently get around 250bhp from my GSI :-)

    Mine did exactly +35bhp from the regal map (which is exactly what they said it would do).. depends on the age & mileage I guess.
