Re: AO...bad influence...tech advice needed!
i had similar questions when debating what modifications to put my car through and was concerned and whether the chassis could handle these
i suppose it depends how mad you want to go, there's pat who has a 147 1.6 turbo which i think on last reading developed 280 bhp, i think the only standard element of the original is the gearbox
im not a 156 owner but im sure those he who are would comment on the chassis limits, whether the 1.6 would have the same suspension, gearbox etc... as say the 2.5v6, in which case a reasonable amount of power increase would be handled quite easily by current set up
