This car is immaculate. 91000 miles. Not a spot of rust on the arches or sills, obviously garaged all its life, few touch ups on the paint from little scrapes but these will be blown over properly soon.

Found out I can get 130BHP+ from the 1.6 with a little bit of work. The 1.8 I have will get fitted to this and I'll have that running 150+ easy in a year I think

Yeah sorry meesh but ur engine would need an awful lot of work just to reach 90BHP(my figure already)This is gonna be done properly with lots of advice from the experts such as burton power. I think it will eventually involve the 1.8 bein overbored to 1950CC with forged pistons,rods,and crank, lightened flywheel,race clutch and maybe even a low pressure turbo. AM I MAD? maybe.all depends on costItd be great to have an ST170 beating escort

Painted in Hammerite? Be careful with that, if the hotwire on the MAF is touched it gives a false reading

You do know that the chances are your fueling will be messed up and you'll have idle problems by fitting these parts?

Before you tell me some jibberish and say that am wrong look into it, the 1.6 doesnt take to the 2.0 parts - some models can support the 2.0 TB but thats it

and not a chance you'll get 130BHP from a 1.6 with 'simple' mods - Id do what iv always told you can stop messin round and get a bigger engine

Never heard of specialised engines,or burton power?? 2K would get me a stage 3 1.8 ZETEC mate and thats bound to be punchin 200 BHP and indestructable components. And im not even after half that. I only want a 40BHP gain. Although i am thinin about nitrous now to give those 200+ boys a scare at the lights

thats 128 tho and will be at the fly, i love when people lie bout figures, you cant polish a turd, stop living the the clouds with snoopy the more power you got to start with in the first place the bigger the gains you can expect to see. so start with a bigger engine and stop raving on like you doing this next week, you know you wont do this

Unlike a lot of people i dont chat balls. What i say i want i get. Remember im one of the people hu actually does stuff to cars. I dont have a 300 pound car with a massive sub in. I spunked 7 grand on my last one and this next one will be a GTI/XR3i beating car in all departments. Not goin nuts on the ICE tho. May even leave the sub out and just get a small one in a tiny box. My current sub weighs 25-30KG in its box. Thats like a 8 year old kid in the boot all the time

Guy has emailed me sayin the wire was removed for painting and he advises me to stick my own wire in there anyway just to be sure. Ive emailed a proper tuning company aswell to get their opinion on what is the best way to get 150+. Also u have to remember the insurance will jump when i get a transplant. Great thing is my insurance dont need to know about some of my mods as they are uber subtle, GTI kit wont get questioned as it dont look aftermarket.Same with the wheels. I think they wudda even been options on the Si
