Thinking off getting somethings to make the car have a little bit more bhp....

What can I get and what will they give me?? IE will I get anything for upgrading the air filter etc??

Also I want to upgrade the breaks on my Corsa C, as they just dont stop me as good as I want them too, what should I get, just need brake pads or a full upgrade of discs also??..... if just pads which ones??

Cheers

best bet for brakes would be a V6 conversion (288mm) disks pads and calipers, get em at V-tuning for 200. a cheaper option is 2 go for 2ltr 256mm disks, u can use disks pads n calipers from an astra GTE 16v etc

200.... can afford that just yet

Might just have to upgrade the break pads..... would that help??
If so, which ones should I get, and how much they cost do you reckon?

Cheers I will have a look about for some.

What about the engine,

What will a Air filter do for me, and what will I get from an induction kit?

like AK said, best brake pads for bauxhall discs are vauxhall pads. You need a new engine if you are after any performance at all. If you wanted performance, you should have got the SRi.

agree with this, noonster you defo need some kinda heat protection for the filter. i had a kn induction kit on mine but took it off becoz of the flat spots from the heat. ive drilled my airbox and im getting a kn panel filter for it. dunno about the sounds though.
