Try putting them on the inside of the window, less drag, reckon you'll get another 3bhp (per sticker)

Damn, you right! Every days a school day.

But in all seriousness I dont think the 3.2 engine was prime for massive gains to be honest. General consensus seems to be buy something faster in the first place than waste money trying to make it faster?

I don't agree with that when we give the Government 5 tonne a year for nothing. We don't even get a peice of paper to stick in the window anymore with the expiry date on it.

You will get a few claims, but I dont think Ive ever seen anyone on here with an actual big power dyno showing anything above standard.

Have you read squadrone Rossos thread? Thats really interesting.

159 Q4

About 360 hp i believe, the engine is similar to the GM v6 (block) so you can use the pistons rods etc from the LY7 i think version, to get 3.6 litres, the block needs a bit of work of course and i don't think it's quite as straight forward as it sounds but a guy in SA i believe has had it done to a Brera as an alternative to going down the Autodelta S/C route

Mine did 245 Bhp on the rollers with a wizard cat back & pipercross inbox filter.

I later found out that the calibration was a bit out & it was under reporting but it would have been standard.

As already posted some have done the 3.6 covertion to their engines, the best and easiest way to get more power is to change the intake manifold and throttle body for a larger one also the exhaust manifolds could be changed too
