Help Mods for 155 v6 ?

Hi chaps,

I have a 155v6 (sport kit and IBOC springs, stabilizer bar), looks nice and handles very well. Hell the wife doesn't want to drive anything else, not even the new GT Mjet. Thing is, I what a little more grunt from the 155. Any ideas what kind of GOOD mods I can do to the engine to get that little extra.

Appreciate the help.

NB! I'm from Cape Town South Africa, so things should be relatively easy to find if possible.

I guess a chip would be the next step unless you want to go for cams?

Try Squadra, you should get about 15bhp but have to use Super Unleaded (98ron).

Or, look for a chip that will run on 95ron...there are a few but I forget which companies!

Right, the chip comes first, as it provides the cheapest first "new" bhp. Then the engine airflow comes next, I think: air filter and exhaust line. If your 155 was made after June 96, like mine, your exhaust line is made of 3 mufflers after the catalytic muffler... if it's time to change it, an upgrade complementing the mod chip is supposed to be nice.

I'd do a filter upgrade with the SQUADRA. Heard mixed results about dropping just a squadra in by itself. TRy the BMC Carbon Air filters...much £££ but will give you a big
