new 172 owner...want more power!

  ph1 172 / r1 mini project
ive recently got a 2001 172 as part of a deal for my old pug 306, its already got a magnex exhaust and k and n but was wandering wot decat pipe is recommened for the 172 as this seems the next stage to get sum more gee gees out of her! ive also been looking at the k tec group n ecu, has anyone got any thoughts on these if it was fitted along side the mods that are done now and a decat pipe???


speak to pmurray about a remap, and maybe fred at yozzasport for a decat.. just my 2p worth! :D oh and welcome to CS
  Vectra :(
Dont expect to much in the way of power increases unless you have 3-4k spare tho mate as thats what it costs realistically.

As said for a decat see fred ( i can recommend :D

Remap if you can afford it or if money is tight consider a group N ecu. BBPT are doing them for about £150 at the mo i think.

Oh and hello :D
