    is it worth the expense for a temporary increase of 25bhp?

    what engine have you got?

    Cool mate, sounds good, fairly safe if you have it progressive. You shouldnt need to worry about uprated engine internals with 25bhp, even 50 wouldn't be out of the question IMO. What engine do you have?

    Love the look of your car by the way! Euro suits the MK4 to a T

    personally (ill probably be slated for this) i wouldnt bother, with the extra bhp you will still only have 125bhp, most other cars on the road will still be faster,
    you would still lose races with most other cars on the road so what is the point?
    im my mind, you either want more power to have fun in the odd race and beat people (where NOS would be useful as you only want it part of the time) but in your case, it wouldnt work,
    or you want more power to make the overall driving experience more fun/easier so would need to be a permenant increase,

    If you want NOS then get it, end of the day its your car and your choice, but in my opinion it isnt worth it except for 1/4 miles etc with a already powerful car and add the NOS to make it something special, on a 1.6 will just make it a 1.6 with NOS, which woudlnt be of any serious benefit,

    where do you plan to need/use it?
