Nothing

Easiest way for more power is to drop a 1.6 in

Not very much tbh, just looked at the Bluefin chips and on my mk6.5 zetec s it'd only increase by 9bhp for £250, pointless in my opinion.

or you could just upgrade to a 1.4 or zetec s.... :rolleyes: :D

Agreed 9bhp is over 10% gain.

Been looking at bluefin for a while and even though standard with map is only 9bhp a lot of people are saying with just a K&N air filter it'd be 12-15bhp.. And with that, 4-2-1 branched manifold, sport cat and sporty exhaust you'll be looking at 20-25bhp increase depending on how good the manifold etc was.. So an extra possible 25% increase for only 250? Seems good 😃 :)

K&N filter will probably do nothing, as much as people love to go on about these gains, they do relatively little. Yeah a complete exhaust system may see a decent boost and again a remap on top, but honestly it's all a bit pointless.

The exhaust system I'd imagine would cost a grand if you could find someone to make you the manifold; unless you turbo-charge you'll get very little and have spent a lot. Let's face it by the time you've done all that, you're as powerful as a 1.25, you're noisy and you're going to have to tell Mr. Insurance that you've modified your car a good deal; may as well just buy a 1.4 or 1.6 in that case, probably lower in insurance too that way.

If you have the lower power 1.25, I heard of a company that managed to put on the other 1.25 map, but then again you're still not really gaining much.

Aw sorry! My bad, I totally forgot he had a 1.25 I was meaning those power gains for my 1.6 zetec S haha! And all those things I said are already done to my car when I bought it.. Actually ignore me I'm being totally usuless lmao!
