Just got a new 1.8 (140bhp). Now this might be the smallest engine I've driven for a while but even my technical ineptitude knows itís not size that matters! Iím pretty sure Iím not imagining it but there appears to be markedly less engine braking in this car than anything else I have driven! If I am imagining it, then I am happy to be ridiculed! It just seems so obvious I had to ask. Can anyone shed any light on this please?
Thanks for for the interest guys! I drove the Ds too and they seemed fine! EcosseOz, look forward to your assessment! Fraser................ouch, but alas, it is feeling a little more sluggish than I hoped! Was a gamble! However Angel having a nose next week. Fingers crossed they can get a little more life outta the beast - without compromising too much of course!
MGN, I also have a 1.8 MPI and am a little disappointed at how sluggish it drives. Took a punt against the 1.9 JTD and it seems it was a poor bet !
Did Angel manage to get any more bhp out of your 159 or does anyone know of any quality mods that may increase torque ?
