Obviously im going to get some twats that go "nos" or "turbo" but if i was going to be a twat and spend money on stuff like that i would clearly get a bigger engine! I want to know some little things i can get my mechanic to do that will add any sort of power to my car without fucking up my engine like knackering my pistons and stuff! Im crap with engines so any advice much appreciated boys :thumbs

de-cat, air filter, inlet, exhaust manifolds, cat back system, not really much you can get from a 1.2, better off saving your money and getting a 1.6 lump of maybe even bigger

You say not a turbo, If you can find the correct (T2 IIRC) turbo from the correct car, the turbo would bolt straight up to the manifold, custom make a downpipe, tap a oil return into the sump and use a adaptor on the oil pressure switch and your then just need to plumb it all up.. On standard compression, Wouldnt a right hoot.

Maybe not for you but heyho.

personally if you wanna go faster, get 2ltr brakes and maybe GSI suspension. it won't go faster but it'll handle it better.
