    Easiest Engine mod?.

    I have just brought a mk4 T reg 1.6 16v sxi. Due to the cash flow going in the wrong direction i was just wondering what the easiest mod would be to make the engine sound better or go a little bit faster without busting the bank or rasing the fuel consumption to much. Any ideas anyone or is there nothing that can be done

    Its gotta be an induction kit mate, only about £60 and will make the car sound much better. As for a power increase im not sure, boxes claim 6-8 BHP buts its probably only about 3.

    Even cheaper and possibly just as good - derestricted air box and PVD panel filter. Costs less than £30 and 30 minutes of your time

    Do a search, as it been discussed 1000's of times
