You could gut you catalytic convertor.

Or lighten the car out.

Or use richer fuel like optimax.

urm...

Could make yourself a cold air feed as well as make a hole in the air box for it to go into.

I know its not free but try 10k boost, seemed to work wonders on my 98 GT.

really wouldnt recommend drilling the air box...

if he wants the beefy noise get a K&N there only about 50 quid. cheap as chips on ebay actually.

no disrespect, but at the end of the day its a 1.2 its never going to be fast. and the grunting noise gets annoying after a while, and it does nothing noticable for performance. and with a hole in his airbox he'd have to get a new one. so id say go for some sort of pod filter...

you can't make a 1.2 fast without a turbo or something daft like that

all a hole in the airbox/K&N will do is make a loud noise, thus attracting attention from other boyracers resulting in humiliation being beaten off at the lights from a 1.0 yaris

Yea, that's right.

corollasr: If you want more power from nothing, U need hands work, i.e. custom Ram Air inlet, a gooood tuning and maintenance, good Oil, clean fuel, "Reduce Fat Fast", the correct tyre air preassure, clean the exhaust of dust and dirt, polish the manifolds, new or clean air filter, good spark plug wiring (not the ones with the filter for interference, you loose power with those)etc.

These things won't give you more power, You will stop wasting it.

it has to work out.

Hope this helps ;)

Corolla SR, try to convince your mate to get used to driving and being in different motoring situations before trying to go faster.

He should try and be patient and then enjoy a more powerful car in a few years (and it keeps his insurance down).

The old saying of 'don't run before you can walk' springs to mind

p.s. I am not an old woman
