I bet it can be done and you can be pretty sure someone is working on it as we speak

I cant see the point. Why would someone buy a brand new car with a just released economically designed engine and want to change it. If it wasn't powerful enough I would have bought a different model.

I could understand it on an older car or one ive owned for a couple of years.

Amazing what they can do with that engine , but i agree with the posts further up. Why buy it in the first place if you think its not fast enough ,they may have got 200 bhp out of it but i bet it would not last very long at all , and if that tuned engine was placed in a normal car it would not have the same outcome.
