not really .....

a cam costs a fair bit as does a chip

better off just putting on filter/cat bax exhaust and saving up for 2litre

I do not believe a viper will give you 10bhp on this engine. Is that what it said on the box or do you have RR proof?

No reasonably priced mods are going to noticably improve performance.

it doesnt matter how expensive or how big the claims are for a airfilter, all it can do it release the potential of an engine, not increase on bhp which isnt already there.

An airfilter doesnt force air into the engine so how can i do anything but be less restrictive?

Way to many people believe the hype of these products its unbelievable, they think they can get 10bhp outa a 1.4 engine with just an airfilter, why would a company fit an airfilter which is that restrictive on the engine? Dont ya think they would wanna release its potential?

Hi,

I had a 1.4 8v and I put a K&N and full Powerflow system on it, but there was no increase in performance.

It sounded good tho.

I just accepted my 1.4 for what it was and enjoyed it!
