Hey all,

I was a lurker a few years back on FF so it's good to be back! I got a stonker of a Marea Weekender in lovely shape on a V plate.

I guess the 1.6 unit in a car the size of Wales isn't the best of ideas but is there a good aftermarket remap or upgrade available to make it all a little bit more lively?

I've seen a lovely M45 Eaton on Ebay. Plenty of these seem to be kicking about for very cheap, and they don't look to be too much trouble to fit on the grand scheme of things - I notice a few guys on here already have charged engines and it'd be wicked for something to do over a few winters nights..

I'd really like to stay away from changing the engine just yet.

Scott

Methinks you'll have to learn to live with what you have.

Not much use of remapping 1.6 engine. The cost is not adequate to the gain. You may try to look for info on turbo'ed units but imagine the cost!

Aye suppose. The price of them M45s is just so tempting though! I really liked the idea of supercharging just for the fun of it.

Are there any super charged 1.6s kicking about or would building a 2.0 on the bench and fitting it when alls said and done a better idea?
