When i first bought my GSi (european version of the SRi)
i didnt think at all of getting more performance out of my engine.
but now the tables have turned:lol:

last december i had a friend fit me with the inletmanifold from dbilas aka 'flowtec'.
it resulted in more fun and higher hp at high rev range and more sport sound coming from the engine.

standard my 1.4 16v had 89Hp and 121Nm torque (90ft-lbs i think)
0-60mph was in 12sec:eek: => according to factory it did it in only 11.5sec

now with the flowtec mounted and my rev range put from 6500rpm to 7500rpm
i have 107Hp and 121Nm torque
0-60mph is in 9.8sec:D (tested with g-tech)

some pics of the RR result and of the mounting of the flowtec

the red line is the original setting from the factory
the black line is with the flowtec mounted without a remap



the original engine with twinport inlet still mounted





this is the twinportinletmanifold



within these pipes, there's a little valve wich makes the car not so thirsty to fuel


a wire need to be made longer(everything is delivered with the flowtec set


pic whithout any inletmanifold


my ecu mounted on the flowtec


flowtec bolted into its place(perfect fit!!)






the end result



next monday i will be going back to dbilas for a remap and a flowmaster
estimated HP= 120 Torque= 135Nm(100ft-lbs)

2nd gear: goes up to 100km/h (62.5mph)
3rd gear: goes up to 140km/h (87.5mph)
4th gear: goes up to 180km/h (112.5mph)
5th gear: goes up to 210km/h (132mph)

next tuesday i'm gonna meet a guy who has the 1.8 16GSi(SRi) 125hp
