thinking about being silly and doing some silly things

like selling the jordan and getting something like:

http://pistonheads.com/sales/500251.htm" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

and doing some engine stuff to it. like upping cc's and adding boost and wanting to blast around in something that originally was cheep as chips....

whats the underneath of that to be different to mine?
and the engine mounts? much different than mine?

Same car as mine that one year newer though.

Why would you though? It's only a 1.4, not a great colour and would be costly to get it up to standard. It's not VTEC either.

What's wrong with your Jordan?

nothing is wrong with it.

i just want something that is amazing......

as in i would ditch the fact it has wheeltrims and a 1.4 and make something amazing out of it.....

like big big power but with handling in mind....

and things like an exhaust flap so it can be quiet. and electronic boost and fuel delivery so that it can be economical....

let me draw up plans and see how stupid ive been

handling-low+grippy but some comfort
brakes-big+powerful but able to stop at 10mph (dont need too much heat to work)
interior-A/C, soft seats, space in boot, caged, easy to get into+thrash or drive far, creature comforts
looks-sleeper, slightly not special. doesnt stand out yet looks different
economy-can do at least 30-35 on a long run
isn't loud!!!!
can be fast when u want it to be (ecu power management)
engine-cc's? 2.4 max???
turbo-small boost
tuning-mid lairy power/internals
-exhaust flap(s) for quiet on journeys
-ecu management, driveanle everyday, easy to drive/softish clutch/PAS
weight-enough not to blow away in the wind.

i think that 250hp max in a fwd car isnt it? can i get 400 please?

Stu - zzzzz says:
at the end of the day when its scrapped/written off that car is worth what a jordan is worth
Stu - zzzzz says:
whereas that would be worth what a 1.4 is worth
Stu - zzzzz says:
unless its possible to get both?
Stu - zzzzz says:
a fully built civic and a jordan?

a 250 bhp fwd car is not really a day to day drive let alone a 400bhp one lol

you can either go full on racer and modify the engine, boost etc and it will be quick, but noisey, expensive to fuel and have no creature comforts (and possibly unreliable)

or you can stay subtle and keep all the things you love, like ac and soft seats

ive got a sun roof and a/c :)

cant u just bodge the wiring? as in power it straight from battery with the switch for up or down? surely it needs a relay and power to the chip that controls what the switch does and thats about it?

take the fuse out of the heating system
