Modding 147 GTA safely

Hello everyone,

I have another batch of questions to ask regarding my soon to be 147 GTA...

I'm considering some mods already, I modded all my cars before, but they were never new...I'd like to do things the proper way.

Am I taking any sort of risks if I fit a Strut brace, carbon air box and sports exhaust ? I'm also seriously considering removing my cat and replacing it by a straight through pipe...Could this damage the lambda gauge? How about chip tuning the car?

Thanks in advance for your feedback

One suggestion - speak to Autodelta before you start!

Another suggestion. Drive it for a while and enjoy it before wanting more. Isn't it enough to be going with?

I think a remap/chip, carbon airbox and a cat-back exhaust system should more than do the trick... so would a strut brace and some susspension mods....

But i wouldnt do the de-cat... It would become far too loud to be able to do anything

If you give it any more power, you will tear off the large rimming bodykit at the first corner.

OK, it needs more power in that case. wink

Lets have it de-frocked.
