Default Mods for Chevrolet Optra 1.8 LT

Hi Guys,

Once again here with some more tips and suggestions needed...
buying a chevrolet optra from my cousin brother, its done 60000km, well maintained, was wondering if i can do some basic performance mods, i am no ways looking for anything noisy like the free flow exhaust.. so is there any mods i can do to the car to improve its performance... all i can think of at the moment is just a external air filter, not so sure of the plugs/wires.
I want to keep the car silent as possible..!!
No no to a turbo!!
No to cosmetic looks aswell !!

So guys please pour your suggestions and tips...

Regards,
Ollie (Allwyn)

hey ollie,

Go for a KnN Conical Filter, makes quite alot of difference, followed by porting and polishing along with 15 inchers and better rubber.

Do post the pics.

P.S what is the colour?

Ollie, contact Viper, hes done some Boom Shiva's Optra job. You may also contact Boom for reports on how his car is performing and maybe get to see the car too.

Read about that here.

Do not have any Tri-phase discussion in this thread and mix up topic.
