Just wondering where you get the power box or power cap for a x16xe, I've heard forum posts were making them but surely there is a company that does them? And are there any real benefits from one?

I'll definitely have a look, or try and buy one from here. I need that little bit more power at the higher revs, what about exhaust manifolds, and recommendations or if a 4-2-1 is better than a 4-1?? Clearance din the ground isn't an issue because my car scraps everywhere anyway!

It made 108 BHP at the wheels.

Beardy's inlet is a copy of a copy, but it should do the job. I know first hand the VX inlets are a nice solid kit of kit.

Don't buy the cheap stainless exhaust manifolds, the one in the link above is pretty good.

It should still be alright though right? I just want a bit more power because it always feel like it need just that little bit more!

and the manifold in the link is a Sportex and ive heard nothing but good things coming from them, in a few weeks might have to make a purchase. thanks for the help guys
