running on a carb and custom cam


Its easer and cheaper as the are running over a thousand RPM past were the electronic brain runs out of map



For a road car there's no regulations.You can do the same with a third party ECU larger injectors and some time on the rolling Road



here in the UK your talking 450 for the rolling Road 350 for the cam by the time you've add ECU , injectors, inlet, exhaust its easy over 2K far more than price of a 04 car and will not dive as well as the standard diesel version.



the whole exercise is pointless in my opinion. But each to there own.

Mozart, I can guarantee you that tuning your 1.2 will cost you more then 2000 Euros and you'll end with a peaky undrivable engine.

Just sell the 1.2 and buy a 100HP or a diesel and have it remapped. But on the latter, keep some budget for the clutch and gearbox as the added torque quickly finds their limits.
