hey buddy sicne your in bangalore ...so then dom's the guy you should call anyways...ive installed a 4670 universal filter on an astra..well the performance is amazing on low rev's and as far as the headers are concerened well dom can get you custom made one's according to your driving needs and then you can go in for a HKS power exhaust..that should do the trick well besides that all i can think of is port the head...polish the pistons...and yea iridium or plaitnum plugs with high intensity ignition wires...so if you do need any more info or any of the performance parts please feel free to pm me...cheers...!!

i have recently put a universal filter on my 97 astra. the car has become awesome at low revs. if you have fuel efficiency in mind then go for the stock replacement filter. but since you would be going for more mods after this i guess you should put the universal filter. or you could go for the typhoon or fipk kits. however i dont know much about them.
