More low down Torque

I need to get more low down torque out a 1.6L 2000 Laser...

I'd like to know if there are any tricks. I don't want to swap motor to a 1.6 or 2.0 or bolt on a turbo. The car is still under warrenty so that leaves out cam changes :(

Any idea's?

Fit a vernier cam gear and advance the cam a few degrees.

Have a look at BSR's new Laser Performance Package, they claim a fair power increase!!

Seriously though, an exhaust & extractors would be about the only thing that would hold most of your warranty

Don't know about a laser - don't even know how to get low down torque in a V8 Falcon, but 525Nm at 1600rpm is hopefully what I'll end up with!
