yeah but many of these smaller engined modded cars (like mine!) are like that because of stupid insurance prices. So many of us get our cars looking mint over 2 or 3 years then bang a bigger engine in when we can afford to insure it. Also that way people know you to have a slow car but get anally raped at the traffic lights when the engines in.

the 2ltr 16v turbo engine currently goes for around the 1000 mark. thats with 70k+ miles on it. They come with +/-200bhp standard. 250bhp is still a couple of quid off from a grand mate. not taking into account the 300-400 needed for custom drive shafts

700 fitting kit, plus brakes, plus strengthening, plus suspension, plus fitting= not a small job. 204bhp standard.

Best for bhp is the 2.0litre Conversion. 400 engine, suspension, 2.0litre brakes, fitting, bought 500 fitting kit.

Best for fun, sound, and just sheer bollox is the 1.6 16v on TB. Just as much power nearly can be gained from them as a 2.0litre, but weighs less and is meant to be in the engine bay.

a 220bhp 1.6 16v
