Just to add check Corsa-C. I've heard good things about the John Ashley manifolds, good price and will be built to your spec

The eBay one? I had one on my car, they are shit. Probably more restrictive than the standard item and they crack very easily.

I've seen the copies on eBay, but for the money I'd rather get a decent set of cams. Suppose you could always get both

Was talking to Warren G at the beginning of the year and he said this should get about 165-170bhp.

Performance Inlet Manifold
Ashley 4 Branch Manifold
Cat, Lexmual/Bastuck 2.5" System
AutoSprint 256Degree Camshafts
EDS Remapped ECU to suit Mods with raised Rev limiter

Or you could go full on and get the Dbilas turbo conversion (costs about 4 or 5k iirc) which is striaght away 230bhp and you don't need to play with internals.
