What are the 'best' mods?? i dont want to fork out $$$$$ to get some more power.. What are the best priced and best performance tuning goodies for a N/A engine...

Cams
headwork
pistons
inlet manifold
manifold
zorst
induction kit...


I know these engines are 150bhp standard, but what would i be looking at when i have tuned it a bit??? im getting one fitted pretty soon. (within the next 2 months) so what bits should i start buying in before the engine goes in?? I want LOADS of power

Cheers peeps

your not getting loads of power with out loads of im afraid..

new pistons will not increase power

just wap a basic TB kit on and your looking around 190bhp.

reliable - yes.
make - all pretty much do the same thing
BHP - depends on other factors. cc, cams, headwork, rpm

Very nice looking engine.

Is that some sort of plastic cover over the wings though? What car is it in?
