Engine choices for my 1.8 155

Hey all. New to the forum. I've had my 155 for about a year now and have finally decided to turn it into a track day car. Its currently harbouring a 1.8 litre twinspark and I was wondering what my upgrade options were. Thanks in advance

Assuming your car is a 16v the easy upgrade is to a 2.0 16v, although there isn't a huge power increase, and some people reckon the 1.8 revs better.....

Beyond that, there are various possibilities such as transplanting the Fiat 16V or 20V turbo units, but it isn't a five-minute job.......

If you are just going to use it as a track-day toy, you are better spending your time stripping out weight - less weight to accelerate, brake and persuade to go round corners is just as effective, if not more so, than extra power in improving your lap times.....
