  1. Hello I'm 18 years old , I bought a pug 2051.4 this summer .. unfortunately I can't afford buying and upgrading to a new bigger engine like a 1.9 GTI can someone help me with some ideas to gain more power please ? because my friends are making fun of my car but I really love my 205 is swapping the carburetor would be a good move ? and is there any specific carb model ? and Thanks
  2. Hi guys. This is my first thread after buying an 8v 1.9 track day car. The current engine is a pretty well speced: rebuilt 1.9 engine which had the crank polished, standard size. balanced rods and 1.6 pistons. twin weber 45s honed bores and new standard piston rings. the cylinder head had its ports smoothed out and valves all relapped. new piper hot hatch race cam 292 deg new cam belt and tensioner. new engine mounts, rear one solid alloy. flywheel was lightened, new ap borg and beck clutch. 1600 gearbox The car was put on a rolling road and made 150bhp at the wheels so circa 175 at the fly. Is this about the limit for a fast road/tack car or is there any further tuning to extract a bit more power? I have thought of throttle bodies of course but cant really justify the price as I like the webers anyway. Further cylinder head work? Many thanks in advance
