I feel your pain, located in Trinidad in the Caribbean, all we got here is 1.6Hi all,
Poor little old me lives in China, so alas I am stuck with the 1.6 Litre engine (unless you buy the flagship model, which in some morons infinite wisdom only sells in auto transmission here, in which case its the 2.0L). Its a 1.6 manual for me then.
Obviously this means I am desparate for whatever I can get my hands on for bolt-on performance gains. I am sure CAI and exhaust will give a nice improvement. The exhaust I can probably get fabricated locally after the exhaust manifold and back. For a CAI I am going to struggle to find a kit here locally.
SO, the question is, anyone know of where I can go for this kind of stuff? A new exhaust manifold and a CAI would do nicely, and I am sure a remapped ECU would also provide something too. Unfortunately there is no 1.6L channel open in this forum, just 2.0 and 2.4 so i am not too sure where else to make this post.
The 1.6 puts out 124 HP so if I can just squeeze out an extra 20 to 25 HP or so that would be a great gain. Not sure if this is wishful thinking or not?
Anyway, all advice welcome.
Looking forward to the replys in this thread.
