My insurance is 1065 FC and i can do any mods i like as long as i dont put a bigger engine in and that with being 18 and 1 years no claim.

And no a peco will not but it up by 10 more like 2 if u are lucky, so dont think that i am stupied.

i need to get a new cam belt anyway so i might as will do the cam and it has now got 130000 miles on the clock and even more when i change it.



furry muff, but i stil dont believe it will increase your power output

i know u said about ure insurance and all but a 1.4 16v who prolly cost ya about 250 off the right person and that would barely affect your premium

massive difference to the 1.2 i would think as the 1.2 has to be the most slugish engine ever made.

waste of 270 fella, i seriously doubt you will notice any power gains if there are any.

what kind of cams are there for a 1.2 8valve anyway :boggle:


MJ

posted on 21st Jan 04 at 14:14

i no it wont increase it that much but i will be nicer to drive and i will be doin all the work myself so it will only cost me about 270 anyway for the cam kit.

Also i dont want a bigger engine as i want to keep the insurance to a min.

u'd be waisting your money there

the only way to increase the BHP from this engine is to tie about 10 horses to the front of your car:lol:

standard vaux stuff is best, unless you have other serious engine modifications you will see no gains from having decent plugs etc.
