im wanting to get some extra horsies out of my car, ive blanked the egr valve off, ive gutted the air box and put a k&n pannal filter in there, the engine is the x16xe (100hp) with the egr valve at the back of engine, im putting a de-cat pipe on today but is there any other cheap ways to gain power without turbocharging?? any help would be great, cheers ppl

You can get loads of tuning parts for the 1.6 as it came in the Corsa GSi. You can get cheap V6 engines (200 quid), I wouldn't imagine the 1.6 would be fast in a Vectra, they're quite heavy, I'd really think about putting something like that in it.

It's the Intake on the 1.6 which hold these engines back, change that and they free up quite a few bhp.

An after market one, like these.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/astra-corsa-dbilas...=item3caa7c5ccc

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/corsa-tigra-perfor...=item3caace4601

You will also need a chip/remap.

For the outlay of doing it you may aswell sell the 1.6 vectra.

Not sure what the X16XE is standard (or if it's identical to the Corsa one, which it probably is), but they're quite capable of 150 bhp with the inlet changed. Head was 'Designed by Lotus' and all that.
