Pushin a 1.4 is not a good use of money. You could spend 1000quid and u wont see much more than 30bhp extra but spend 1k on an engine transplant with a few twists and u could probably get a 180bhp(ish) motor

I wouldnt bother trying to get any more power from it. Save up for a while and get a new engine. Like scoop says, itd be a waste of money tuning a 1.4.

2.0 Prelude Enigine?

Aint worth the agro Stubzy b'cos all you can really do is bore it out, gas-flow the head, uprate cams and lifters etc and u will pay a lot for this with very little gain.

A suttle shot of Nitrous Oxide mate, a 50 shot maybe (25 BHP Gain) and you will be happy mate, trust me its well worth it.....

I will have to take you out in the scooby one day when i have re-filled my nitrous oxide and show you the differance it makes.... Its awesome, Just ask web-master (He cakes it everytime i use it)

Yeah i hear what you guys are sayin. I probably will just save up for a bigger engine.

Nitrous Oxide is a serious possibility at the moment, i'm so tempted.I'll pop down to autosafe sometime Scooby & ask you a bit more about it & also defo take you up on that offer sometime..thanks.

My advise is the Nos and also go for weight saving. At the end of the day, it's power-to-weight ratio that gets you to 60 quicker. It's far easier and cheaper taking non essential bits off your car.
Modifying any engine results in wear. If you do a weight saving program then this in theory will have less stress on your engine as it's shifting less weight.
The route of Nos is quite a good one as any bolt on mod can easily be taken off when you come to sell it and put on your new car or sell it on Ebay!
You can't do that with a new engine or at least wouldn't be easy. Insurance can also be a pain to get if changing engines as can selling it.

would be worth looking into getting bigger brakes as well if your looking at bigger power smile

Nos sounds good, as you could take it off and put it on your next car if you wanted, but make sure you got enough cash spare to refil the bottle when its empty!
