I've been browsing this forum quite alot since my brother got an 156 1.6 TS.
Now it's my turn to ask a question.
Well a short backstory, I owe my brother alot, not just money, so I really want to help him get as much out of his beloved car as possible. I allready installed alod of mods to it so it looks great.
This time it's about the engine. It's a 1.6 TS, and what I am interested in is:
Can I, by any chance, do some tinkering, like stroking or cam-change it into having more power?
I thought like putting in cams from the 2.0 or 1.8 or putting in pistons and crank from any of these engines or anything like it, to make it run a bit smother/faster?
The car is glued to the road, it drives even better than my own, but it really lacks a bit of torque/hp. (my own is a 325i bmw E36 with 220bhp, it's faster but has worse handling)
The engine is standard, and due to the danish rules, I cannot put on a turbo.
I got some parts from the inside of both 1,8 and 2,0 engines so I don't have to buy those, same with the turbo :P but I can't remap it. that's about it.
Any good advices are welcome!
ps: I had been browsing the forum, searching around, but after some hours I decided to make a threat as much of the other threads go on "can I tune my 1,6 -> cheeper to buy new bigger car" which is not an option here.
