Auto Forte AU2, worth the trouble?
I love my car, and this is a curiousity question.
It's a stock 2000 AU2, Forte. Auto. I love it, being 20 it's alot nicer than my mates 90 pulsar's :)
Anyway. Is it worth putting money into it for extra power? I typically don't drive it hard, and what I had planned was the following.
extractors, 2.5" exhaust
cold air intake
Other than that, the next things you can really do is start the phase 3 kits which I saw on a site linked from here.
Being an Auto. Will I ever see this power?
The reason I would like to make this car into my baby, and play with it, as opposed to 'keeping it' for resale, is because until i'm 25, insurance wise, I really can't drive anything faster...If I go turbo, no one will touch me.
So yeh, Will I even see this power? Specially being a turbo. Hope you can understand me, I'm still kinda unsure exactly what I'm asking. I spose what I'm saying is, if I had the exact same car in manual, I wouldn't hesitate moddingit for performance because I'm able to drive it to feel the extra power. Is it the same even though it's auto? :/
ps. anyone got the link to that site which has the gen 1,2,3 upgrade kits for the AU falcons :)
