Re: Upgrades

should come over to the cinq/sei section for info as the 55 engine is used in the sportings.
put up a budget as its a wide range

Re: Upgrades

just thinking of things like, induction kit, back box would that make any noticable difference?

Re: Upgrades

yes maybe 5-10 BHP if lucky and depending on combo. Not enough to worry the 1242cc people though

you really need to post how much you want to spend

If I was you I would save your money and put it towards a more powerful car you want.

Re: Upgrades

defanatly, I've spent soo much money and time changing my 60s into a 75ELX 5dr that its not funny, really isn't, inc stereo I've spent about 450 and for that money I could have bought a 85ELX or a sporting in good nick at the time.
and mine isn't worth as much now as it would be if it were a 85ELX or a sporting
