    Default What would happen if

    I widened my GSI shortened intake at the front (trumpet looking bit) to allow a tad more air in?

    A bit more roar & a bit more throttle response? - Your comments are appreciated before I give it a go!!!

    Oh, and i have a k&n panel filter on its way, it will be replacing my Courtenay sport one....reckon the k&n will be better?

    Have you done the "air box mod". That might help with more air getting in.

    Try it, why not Although i very much doubt you will notice any difference changing the filter, probably a waste of cash imo.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thing is with the 3.2 V6 unless you want to spend a lot of money there is not much you can do as a "quick fix" I am afraid, even a "remap" will at best only give you about 25-35 bhp more.
    There are members on here who have improved their "perfomance" but it did not come cheap.

    How do you mean widened? if its how i think a guy did this on his MK4 astra on another forum when all the lads where fitting Veccy c intakes...

    He took 2 intakes, cut the back of 1, the front off the other - plastic welded it together and effectively made it twice as wide on the opening (will try find a pic)

    IIRC it made no difference...
