in the next few months,when i get a new job sorted the car modding is going to start with more enthusiasm. The exhaust is knackered on my G 1.6 sxi, so i'm going to be replacing that with a full system for a start, then maybe look at a panel filter and doing some mods to improve the somewhat roly-poly handling.
i'll be looking at keeping this car around 3 yrs so i'm just curious, beyond exhaust/panel filter, is there much more that can be done to give my 1.6 some extra beans? or is it a fairly futile excersise and a waste?
obviously there is a cost to benefit ratio i need to consider, my main concern would be doing a load of perfomrance mods but still find the car lacking. but given the recent tax hikes, keeping the 1.6 and modding it seems like a more economical option than upgrading to larger engined car in a cpl years.
