But how often do you seen those people carriers and such like carrying people!!! Nine times out of ten there is only one person in there!! No weight to the things....

.... At least, that is what I'm trying to convince myself of :rolleyes:

The Zafira VXR is one quick bit of kit. Looks sh1te tho. :lol:
Guess you'll just have to get a remap, air induction kit and rev the balls off the 1.8..... :) You should have a handy 165bhp if you do the above...might help when you see one of those fugly people carriers looming....;)

well......they are extremely powerful engines, built for tuning too. the 1.8 shifts the big heavy passat like a rocket, thats without any tuning...they can be modded up to 400 plus, but its then going into twin turbos etc, point being the engine was made for it.

although granted, the figures he has been quoted may be inflated....
