Just thought I'd let you know I ordered a K&N replacement air filter for my 113 yesterday :D, I'll let you all know if I see much improvement once I've installed it!

No disrespect but why would one want to 'boost' the performance of what is basically a functional van totally unsuited for high speed?
Performance 'mods' are beneficial on cars and smaller vans - has anyone tried to stop a 'vito' when travelling at 100mph by braking hard? heh, don't wanna stop 'cause the factory brakes are bl**dy useless! Ever tried to take a sweeping curve at around 70mph? heh, don't wanna turn 'cause the handling/suspension is cr*p!
Accept the fact that these vitos/vianno/**** are functional vehicles meant for transporting people and goods - want some excitment on the road, get yourself an Alfa/Saab/Impreza/Ferrari or the good ole Escort Mexico!
In answer to your question Punjabi, yes I have tried taking a sweeping curve at 70mph in my Vito and thanks to my Koni dampers and H&R lowering springs I came out the other side with nothing more than a huge smile on my face! You want to get yourself some decent suspension mate ;)
