    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Sorry dude... there is nothing to be gained from 'tuning' a 1.6... any form of normally aspirated tuning is expensive for very little gain... assuming you have a 1.6 as you are young and can't afford to insure a 1.8t I'd stick some wheels on it and live with it until you can afford a 1.8t...

    There just isn't a market for tuning parts on these...

    Basically what these guys have said. There's no way to get much more power out of them without spending considerably more than it'd cost to upgrade to a 1.8t car to start with. The only reason to tune a 1.6 would be to meet competition regulations, and then you wouldn't do it in a mid-size car, you'd use something light. You also wouldn't start with an 8v engine designed for driveablilty.

    Personally, I'd just make you car look cool using transferable parts, then when your insurance drops, buy a 1.8t and swap over the nice wheels/suspension/brakes you've had on your 1.6.

    Also a tip, what you do to 'win' the traffic light grand prix in a 1.6 is to line up looking all serious, then when they gun it off as the light changes, you just don't do anything, and sit there giggling to yourself while they race off making an idiot of themselves, then pull away slowly. Feeling smug. In fact, that's quite fun even when you know your cars faster. Uses less fuel and you keep your licence longer too.

    I feel your pain bro, I'm with a 1.8 N/A which well isn't as bad as 1.6 but nothing special either. Definetly not worth trying to get more power out of it, just wait till you get enough money together like everyone said.

    K this is back to that other thread i made about having a run with a 1.6 golf and i still cant find that car i had a run with but this is a video of his he showed me before he left me, he told me it was a 1.6 and it hadthe cheap black rubstrips and looked like a 1.4 or 1.6 bottom range
    so can anyone tell me if this video is just a lie or if it is defenately a 1.6??

    I would seriously listen to advice the other people have said above...
    keep saving up for a 1.8t, then buy one at the right time.... Then you'll blow him away.

    You're wasting your time with a 1.6..
    As everyone is saying. Save for a 1.8T, fit a few tried and tested mods and he'll struggle to keep up with you.
