    Default Anyone got any ideas?

    Wanting to up the power of my 1.8 club, anyone got any ideas. Already got an induction kit on and a powerflow exhaust which has made a bit of difference, but not enough. was going to put a regal turbo on but they are nearly £4000 and i dont really want to spend that much. So any ideas anyone?

    Honestly? i'd trade it in for something with more poke. It sound cynical but ive dont it myself. Spend ££££ trying to get my car as fast as the performance version and by the time ive finished, im left with an unreliable car that cost more than the target model and twice as much to insure as its heavily modified.

    Yep, I'd agree with that. I think it's complete madness to spend £4k on a turbo conversion when you could trade the car in and put that £4k towards a better specced/larger engined model.

    With the 1.8 I don't think you're ever going to get any substantial increases in oomph without throwing silly money at it.
