improve performance

Post by ahmed-abrar » Sat Oct 09, 2010 1:02 pm

i would welcome any advice/ideas on how to improve performance of my 24v, auto! without pouring too much petrol from the exhaust!!!
apart from a k&n replacement air filter insert, my car is standard, my main gripe is the lack of 'traffic light' pick up power esp compared to my old 12v manual

If you have a standard 24 V, the QV intakerunners will give about 20 BHP extra.

You can read that story here:

You can buy the ones from a Lancia Kappa, only thing is they are black.
And another solution is to take the ones from a 156 Gta, not 100% sure, but they could fit too.
