More power to Idea

Hi Fiat Forum

I have a Fiat Idea 1,4 16V 95 Hp and i am very happy with the cars overall funcktion. But im tired of it beeing so slow
Does anyone have som sugestions, how to get more pover out of the engine, within a reasonable budget.
Im a DIY mecanic and can manage a lot of mecanical changes, but i can not programme the computer myself.
Im not planning to make it a formel one racer, but just give it enough power to be able to pull four peoble over a normal incline on the highway without having to gear down. So a litle more torque would do a lot of difference.
Any sugestions would be welcome

Im living in Denmark, so tuning companies in UK is not an option

Not much of an increase in the petrol version from tuning unfortuantely, 'might' get a little more with a free flowing air filter fitted before the tune (i.e. BMC etc).

Hi Zeewulf

Not the answer I wished for, but it was not a surprise.
Thank You for the answer

Janidea ...Have you looked at re mapping the ECU? ....I bet there are folk doing it in Denmark ...worth a look ..and let us know how you get on ...I just did a 5 hour drive to Iraklion and back ,two up and was pleased with the power of our Idea ...but then I'm comparing it with my other vehicle a 2500 cc diesel truck .....
