Tip Submitted by Richard Raynor Tip: is great place for bargain spares and even complete engines / gearboxes
Extreme auto acessories also have some great value performance & styling parts. Question: I've added a sports exhaust and Air filter what should I do next to boost the power without spending too much money?
Answer: Fit a fuel pressure boost valve - about £100 for more top end power and driveability with a faster throttle response or go for fast road profile cams £200 + Fitting .
when tuning, leave changing the camshaft as long as possible, because you will not be able to account each parts added performance, due to the higher idle revs an valve overlap.
Can you fit a Ram injection unit, a powercap and a turbo conversion together in a vauxhall calibra 2.0 16v pre ecotec (or ecotec)
