Thumbs up Punto mk1 1.2 sporting mods

Hi all, im new to Fiatforum, names Tom from North Wales. just bought my first punto after a move from mk1 clios, recently had a 1.8 16v clio, and onwards to a punto sporting, which is a huge step backwards but fun none the less. Broom Yellow FTW
Anyway hopefully you can contribute to this thread by answering my many questions?

Best induction kit for 1.2 16v mk1? (performance over noise really)
Best Suspension kit/ best drop? (anything but coilies)
Best Exhaust system? (full, stainless prefered)
Styling ideas?

many thanks.. much appreciated in advance and hopefully ill get to know you and attend meets once i get my punto looking just the way i want!
cheers

Re: Punto mk1 1.2 sporting mods

hi welcome to FF, nice to see a felow north wales guy...

have a search thorugh the forum fo any styling ideas there are a few..

the best induction kit would be a GSR one http://www.gsr-uk.co.uk/...

as for lowering, it depends on 1) how much you want to spend and 2) handling.. going lower then 40mm causes the suspension to ware out faster but does make the car look better ( especially with bigger alloys).. andthing up to 40mm is all good. (the handling is better but the suspension in not under strain).

i have mine dropped at 40 and i have no problems with the suspension.. any pics of your car would really help...
