Im with Boostist, get a chip or re-map and then i'd get it set up properly on a rolling road, chips are good but they are mass produced so defo worth getting it tweaked properly to get the best out of the filter and exhaust and also to keep MPG decent, where are you based???
Also which K&N have you fitted??? Did it come with a cold air feed pipe or is it just sat on the end of the air flow meter???
I see you are in Isle of Wight so would have to take a trip to the mainland, unless you have competant fitters/mechanics that you trust and also someone who is able to map the engine once throttle bodies/supercharger are fitted, if you do have trusted fitters etc. then just get in touch with Dblias, I think they only do vauxhalls through Regal Auto Sport, but speak with them and see if they can help, you will most likely be able to use the throttle bodies, also try Jenvey, in my opinion these are the best, they also won the 2007 WTCC in a BMW running their throttle bodies so good chance they will have stuff off the shelf, they do manifolds and management too so a one stop shop!!!
If you want to go down the supercharger route I would contact Jackson Racing, these guys mainly deal in Honda and Fords but again should be able to help you.
You could always use one for a different car and make up the mounting brackets, belts, air feeds etc.
As for turbo power, IMO i wouldn't bother unless you were to go for anti-lag, but this massively reduces the longivity of the turbo, and is also quite an expensive route to go down as it uses much more fuel and then add to that the cost of the turbo maintainance etc.
As for the tuner, try Torque Of The Devil, they are getting some really good press!!
Hope this helps a bit
Hi Black Rat
Forgot to say that if you do want to go down the turbo route the try Torque Developments, these guys specialise in turbo conversions!!
OOOOPs, I have been posting to the wrong thread!!!
