    you wanna get cdti box to if you havent got it allready. not gonna change the car much it be better pick up and bit smoother and will help when you go up the stages (lil more power).

    that will be straight swap but i cant comment if it comes with a reducer hose as i not bought one.
    this does tho. http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Astra-VXR-Zafi...item5888cc6616

      I can vouch for the JBI motorsport stuff. I have most on my car, i replaced all the regal stuff with this and the car runs way smoother and deffinitly quicker at mid to high revs. He also can get htese powder coated and wet painted in any colour you like at a little extra cost but think they may need to be bought in bulk to do so.

      Mite be an idea to do a group buy as i need a few more bits from him also. Lol

        i would be interested in a group buy if price is right. i think that top hat would have better flow than regals cuz the pipe is enlarged over more area cant really comment tho as i havent tried either of them

          Thats what i have found. I think going from a small pipe to large is ok but so close to the throttle body it causes a restriction aswell. JBI's one is allowed to flow from further back so has a chance to create less terbulance or something.

              Cheers mate. Considering the price of the parts from JBI aswell its a good bet to go with them. Regals stuff along with Courtney etc are good but i think because of thier name they now find it easy to sell parts for alot of money due to thier experience in creating some real powerful cars. Dont get me wrong they should charge alot as they have put alot of time into making them etc. But on the other hand places like JBI have aswell but dont demand lots of money due to being the under dog and as a result we can all reap the benefits and have good quality parts at lower prices.

              Heres some pics of my engine bay after visiting JBI. Note that the two lower charge pipes will be powder coated black but i didn't have time to ask him to send them off to be powder coated as i needed them pretty quick.

                        Just so you know the CDTI Box does make a nice difference in noise and power. The noise is cool and it tends to pull harder through the whole gear rather than giving up toward the higher revs, also you will notice when you open your bonnet there not piping hot air coming from the Cross over pipe.........Probably cause its not there anymore. Lol.
