just getting out of the car this morning after buying the mothers day stuff.. like im sure allot of you are. lol
and i was thinking. the new Giulietta we have (1.4 turbo - 170 bhp) how easy would it be to get it over 200bhp... i reckon it would be very easy and cheap to do so.
think about it. most other cars past and present of that kind of bhp (160 ish from new) Toyota Levin, Honda civic type R. etc etc etc. are all n/a cars and to get higher will usually mean alot of money on engine mods and/or exhaust mods and so on.
but this alfa. is already turbod, and it hase nothing you would class as performance parts.
so i was thinking, even putting a front mounted intercooler on it would make a massive difference (it doesnt have an intercooler that i can see)
and even if you take some of the cars that are already turbod that are about the same engine size (Toyota Galanza --- hate them) its still no where near that bhp from standard, so that means alot more money to get it higher.
so i was thinking the FMI + Filters + cold air feed would get you very very close to the 200bhp mark, and wouldn't cost much more than €300 there about.
and then if oyu go bigger turbo and re-map (should cost about the same as getting the levin's and civic's to 200) you will prob not be that far off 250..
thats just epic to think of
