    $1500 would bring you more than UK spec

    Depending on how much of a gain you want you could go for a fairly mild reground cam and change the filter and inlet piping. I'd try to make the inlet plumbing as short as possible with something like a pod filter on the end of it.

    With the cam swap it should give it some more go.

    Pugsly,

    this is the correct one..?
    .....
    Exactly my point Cant_get_enough. Leave it basically stock, get it just above UK 1.9 GTi spec., and be happy. Remember that 130hp with a long diff., is good for sub 8 sec. 0-100 times. With the shorter Aussie diff., low-mid. sevens should be easy. I'm going to puit mine on the dyno soon. Let's wait and see how good $400 worth of mods. are.

    The post was called "Cheap 205 kW". Dyno is booked for next Friday. Should be interesting to see the results.
