Hi

Welcome to FOC

An induction kit is always a good start. Then exhuast system... gives the car a chance to breath properly. You will squeeze a few BHP with that at first

Welcome,

As above induction kit and exhaust but a more important thing would be to keep it serviced. Change oil, plugs leads etc etc. You can really tell the difference between a serviced and unserviced car.

i know its only a 1.3 engine but if you are new to driving you should be looking at driving carefully NOT trying to make it go faster. SO TUCK IN YOUR SWOLLEN KNACKERS AND BE CAREFULL.

s/s exhaust, induction kit,a good carb cleaner. (instant difference)
