    Default Upgrades?!

    I've had an Arden Blue corsa vxr for 3 months now and I love it but I'm starting to look at modifications to put on it (performance & visual) and very tempted to get a dump valve put on any ideas? Thanks

    Welcome along, I'm not to sure about the corsa but dump valves don't work well on the astra.
    Have a look in the corsa section they will give you plenty of ideas on what you can do with your car.

    Welcome buddy, me personally i,d go for a forged recirc valve. If u do go for a dump valve make sure its a twin piston one, Courtney or Regal should keep u right. bmx4life

    I just got mine today, de-badged it already looks great! Got the wind deflectors too which don't look too shabby.

    bit late to this but dump valve should be ok with twin piston and don't block the recirc valve

    I would say exhaust is probably one of the best mods to get. Imo dump valves are not worth the hassle, you can get a dump style noise from a cone filter. If your after a bit more power then look into remapping the car, various stages are available depending on your budget, obviosuly the more you spend, more power you get. Stage 3 is usually where a lot of people stop since after stage 3 you will require forged pistons, turbo etc which can cost thousands
