    Re: hi to all

    hey and welcome mate.
    to be honest nope, best idea would be to get a panel filter as this would give you a gain throught the whole rev range whereas the induction kit will move the power up the range.

    I'd get the head gas flowed and ported and a good exhaust system if i were you. A fast road cam will also help.

    Are you happy with the handling? Which interior does yours have? The leather?

    its amazing what a block of ice on the inlet manifold can do

    With an exhaust system you should see a change with a cold air induction as i did on my astra.

    I have a Vectra 2.2 Auto (53/C model - pre facelift) and it goes like a rocket. 8.8 to 62 (rolling road test) 158bhp. Doesn't look like there are any mods to anything other than the shocks and there is a Pipercross air filter. I got it second hand like this. Not bad for a car that has nearly 89k on the clock. I think that maybe the gearbox has been tuned, but I have no way of telling.

    I would stick with a better air filter and maybe get uprated shocks and springs at a later time. Mine is the elegance model and doesn't seem to be lowered but it holds the road better than my old modified MG-ZS which is also excellent.

    Don't go mad modifying alloys. Standard 17" are great but bigger increases mass, reduces performance. Unless you go for super light versions.

    A better air filter is a cheap option and may improve MPG too. I get 28.5 average, 48 on motorways.
