    Default C2: extra performance

    I ask this more out of idle curiosity rather than the desire to actually do something, but...
    Are there any performance enhancing mods available for the C2, like a plug-in chip or something?
    I was trawling though eBay recently and saw (in the UK as I recall) a plug-in resistor gadget that connected in the ECU circuit and added some HP through 'fooling' the ECU into delivering more fuel...I've forgotten the other details. It wasn't very expensive either.
    I reckon the C2 engine is pretty perky anyway, but I often wonder what power is lost through anti-pollution tuning etc etc?
    I s'pose I should add the obligatory senso-drive comment too? Since having my clutch changed a few months back (warranty job) the senso has been much easier to live with.....in fact I frequently just leave it in auto nowadays.
    It came back with a totally different feel to it.....smoother engagement and changes particularly. I think I may have had another software download with the change as well, making that about the third one?
    Just over 35K on the clock now....still holding together very well, although a just few small rattles here and there....thanks to that sh.tty piece of goat-track called the Princes Highway that I have to travel on every day!!!!
    Anyway...still love the car!

    Proper Air filter, exhaust...

    I guess they're the only viable options and would most probably void your warranty.

    Yeah UB, I think you're right about that!
    Anyway, as I said, I'm not that moved about it - more curious than anything.
