    what about one of these?

    i've read they do fit the vectra c, and you can get some massive power gains when modded.

    there's no way you'll get gains like that spending this little money with the c20let engine.

    Honestly mate, the cheapest option in these situations is simply to sell your current car and buy one with a bigger engine to start with. The 2.0T is a great place to start, and there are huge modding options available for it to go up to silly power figures...

    It'll save hastle with the engine looms, mounting points, problems, computer/ECU issues, insurance etc etc...
