Not much. Think the import pokes out about 255 standard. So probably looking at a decat, decent exhaust, induction kit and boost controller. That should do it. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

upping the boost alone should see 300 bhp.

Hi mate, If your new to these cars, make sure you check out the front "super-strut" suspention!! It need sorting about 60-70miles and most import will be around that mileage, and If it needs doeing it will cost over a grant to fix!! which will put your money for modding out the window, for a bit!! that aside like been said, theyer great cars!!!!

ss suspension can be sorted out for less than 500 if you do it yourself.one of the parts hardly ever goes wrong , its the fig 8's and the lower arm it connects to , fig 8's cost 60 each and the lower arms can be bought for 185 each.

Thats a fair comment, but I was looking on the point of view of not haveing
to do it yourself (a-lot of people wouldnt like to take it on) and the over-all value
of the car, If it needs sorting, it should be taken into account, (maximum price allowed) also i wouldnt like to pay quite-a-lot for a car, and then have to start ripping the suspension apart!!
