    Post moved to the Naturally Aspirated section

    Check the sticky at the top of that section, it contains a good few suggestions for this engine.

    lol the turbo convertion is £4,000 are u really gna spend that much or are u one of those dreamers like some people i know, if i was u id get a cat back exhaust, panel filter, veccy c pipe, and a remap.

    then if ur rele serious get uprated cams, dblias flowtec manifold, or dblias throttle body kit, the 1.6 isnt designed for a turbo and u wont get much more power than what u wud get out of throttle bodies anyway,

    on regal it says +40% bhp increase from turbo kit and the throttle body kit says it gives you +30bhp (and that not +30% BTW)
