Power

Hi

I have a mk6 fiesta flame with a completely standard 1.4 engine

What would be the best way of getting more power out of it?

Cheers

Re: Power

Well, I thought it was standard these days for someone to just slap a Turbocharger or Supercharger on it. Really depends how much power you want. I'm not sure, but I'm guessing that it's got about 70-80kW, therefore, if you fit the right turbo you should be getting about 150kW (40kW less than new Falcons), but, if you went all the way, turned the boost up to the max, and got a massive inter cooler, you might be able to get a maximum of maybe 170kW. To be honest though, from my experience and others' it's not worth it to modify such a small engine. If you do, you will lose 1-Your warranty, 2-Insurance goes up, 3- Fuel economy goes down, 4- Not as reliable as before, 5- When you go to sell it, you will never get that money that you spent back. So, if you want a powerful car, get a DIFFERENT car.
