    nothing really, as long as its in good condition, but advised to do a good service, change oil plug etc, if you want better results you can fit a TIP, Cone filter.
    but im not the best pearson to ask sure someone will pop along soon

    R-tech would be you closest and best bet I guess. About 40 miles each way.

    Biggest problems are leaks, vacuum and boost. Id get a smoke test if you can, or at least a visual test, and replace/renew boost, vac and pcv hoses.

    I'd go with RTec Sham, where in Brum are you? Depending on how far you want to go? I recommend you fir a 3" TIP with a cone filter, and it will see you around 260bhp on V-Power fuel.
