Usual things panel filter or induction kit,throttle body,striaight through exhaust. To be honest none of these will hive you much if any bhp gains will sound louder/better but thats about it. For some real power increases you are looking at head skimming and re-mapping the ecu etc.

2 liter 138 bhp... how much more do you want? your car should be good for 140+:eek:
if the pull and speed is not enough i would suggest either a suzuki GSXR1000
or a honda fireblade. Then you'll find out what speed and power is all about :nod:

bhp increase again...

I'm the proud owner of a '51 plate 406 1.8 petrol... love the car, quite fast, but not fast enough mate... I really want to do smth about it... The backside of the car seems so high above the ground that I feel like I'm gonna fly and land upside down when taking 'some' curbes...

And it won't go more than 120 mph and I need to struggle to get that out of my car. it's embarrassing to drive on the m`way and go like 110 mph and see guys driving jags and beemers going past u, coz the engine will not give me more...
otherwise, it's good in the city... i just get creamed by Audi TT's and stuff..

cheers :)

If you can sell it in the US...you might get a better deal. Getting it here takes about 2500. Once here...you have to find the market to sell it. Otherwise...see if Carmax will take it. You may end up getting a better amount for what its worth.
Cheers
