Thread: The Need For Speed!

  1. #1

    Default The Need For Speed!

    ....or there lack of. i need more POWER!! had a drive of my mini the other day for 1st time in years and realised how flat the c2 really is.

    iv not heard much about anyone performance modding a 1.1 b4 so does anyone know where i can get cams for my 53plate 1.1 or have an idea where i could start? had remap in mind anyway. need new back box cos mine dead so cat back on way after crimbo. and apart from induction kit i dont know anythin else that would be worth doin to it.

    i know i wont get mega gains and itll never be as fast as the vt*'s and gts but i dont want that, i just want to liven it up abit.

    any ideas guys and gals?

    Well I have a 1.1 myself... And personally I think you are better just doing an engine conversion my friend.
    That is what I am planning to do, a 1.6 VTS engine which you can pick up brand new for about 450... Then possibly a Turbo

    Mainly because I feel tuning a 1.1 is pointless, that is just me though.
    I just tend to look at the bigger picture.

    The first major thing you need to do is GET RID of the 17" alloys, put some 15" back on with a lower profile radius, this will give you alot better accelleration than those over weight 17's.

    I know this because when I went back from the GT alloys to my standard 15" steels it made a dramatic improvement to my 1.4i Senso Furio, also my MPG increased by 7mpg

    i agree wif teddy, u shud just swap the engine wif a 1.6 cos the hp gain in a 1.1 wud be miniscule and u wud spend shit loads doin it when u cud spend the money on a faster engine in the first place
