    Newbie here,just bought a Sport.

    Hi guys and gals.
    Just bought myself a wee little runaround on Wednesday,to keep me busy whilst building my project car.

    Thought you might like to see it,
    its a Black 97 1.6 16v Sport 3dr.

    http://www.pistonheads.com/sales/191620.htm

    Im very happy with the car, but after having quite a few GTE's, Vtec's, V8's, etc it does seem a little sluggish.

    So after giving it a service and cam belt change,
    My plans are,

    De-cat pipe,
    K&N panel filter,
    Fuel pressure regulator,
    and some Magnecor leads.

    I think that will do for now as i dont really want to mod it much,like i say, its my little family runabout.

    Anyone had much experience trying to get a little more 'go' from this engine??
    What worked best for you??

    Thanks everyone,
    Rich.

    Hi and welcome to AOC, I'm surprised nobody had responded to this - most unusual!
