    Limited Engine??

    My car was previously owned by a disabled driver, just wondering if they would limit the performance or what not??? as it seemes rather sluggish for a 1.8

    its prob been driven without going over 3000rpm, good full service, and redline it in 1st - 4th should see the crap off the valves, let her hit the limiter a couple of times.

    Worked on my old 1.8 Sri
