Well there are two 1.4 16v engines in the lupo, one is a 75BHP and the other is a 100BHP plant. The fox comes with the 75BHP, which does 0-60 in 13secs and is the quickest fox we get.

Personally i wouldnt be changing engines over on such a new car as it will have limited appeal when selling as most will prefer to buy a standard spec.

Also your warranty would be no longer.

Have a read through some of the tuning threads Kyle, I'm sure the 8 valve has potential for improvement.

You can come down and have some if you want Al, but it'd be a trek wink.gif style="vertical-align:middle" emoid=";)" border="0" alt="wink.gif" />
