I know it's silly and wish I had a Type- R but can it be done? and what performance improvements am I looking at? or any other mods which will improve the performance?

Cheers,

Tom
Anything can be done with enough money but your looking at big money!!!! Different Ecu flash pro exhaust clutch maybe gearbox not sure in ratios etc custom manifolds exhausts lots lots lots

Unless you can fit yourself at a bare minimum to save cash ad have friends in the trade of fabrication I wouldn't wouldn't be cost effective!

Maybe pm some of the Greeks who have 1.8 turbos.


Modding standard 1.4 tbh you'll get no gains if 1 or 2hp if you want nice noise get a Custom exhaust

Go to power flow they'll sort you for a few hundred :)

Yes even with a turbo the pace of the 1.4 from stock is mighty slow and unless you have it some serious boost and serious money it's barely going to warm your feet let alone blow your socks off :(

I have had a power flow exhaust made and I'm extatic.i took it all way to Southampton one as they had good reviews and wasn't disappointed spent all day loitering with them doing it watching. Having a good crack!

Go Southampton if your not a million miles away well worth it for customer service I picked those over one that's about 15 miles away!

When you turn up you'll think what a s&*t hole.

But they are proper mechanics ones who aren't scared to jack a car up to do the pads if ramps are busy.

Serve you the customer tea in a filthy cup and toilet is nasty as all they care about if fixing the cars and doing it well
