they dont spin as fast as the air thats coming in, if anything they restrict the air flow, unless of course its a supercharger.

I'm ****ed up with my Corsa 1.0 acceleration. I'm ready to do anything that will increase power, even slightly.

strip out the back seats and lose some weight is the only way to make it a little quicker.

Lol, I'm seriously thinking of losing 10 kg myself on that purpose. :D

Do I have the right to remove 3 seats, seatbelts? I do not care about MOT, cuz will mount everything back before. Just for a road control, they won't have arguments to fine me?

If you didn't want a slow car why did you buy a 1litre Corsa?
Apart from adding a Turbo or changing the intake manifold and chipping the ecu (both mega expensive) nothing will increase the power enough for you to notice.
Because mainly, it was urgent need (friday I knew I will need a car for monday). Afterall, I have 2x difference on assurance price between 1.0 and 1.4.

strip it out, rear polycarbonate windows. just take all shit out. leave steelies on.

I'll have a spare 1.0 soon (scrapper) so I'm thinking of taking everything off it (going crazy and grinding all rear off so its like a pickup) just to see what difference it will actually make in 0-60 times as this engine despite 118K is very nippy!

Airbox fan will do nothing, I've tried it lol. Didn't notice much difference.

Nice :thumbs_up: I plan to strip it like a pickup also. Just found out that I need to declare that change to local prefecture - conversion to a commercial car (shitty France). But I don't give a ****, if police *******s stop me, I will tell 'em that I just bought a washing machine so need to transport it. France sucks.

Surely the price to making all this changes will increase your insurance premium anyway? I bet a 1.4-1.6 will be cheaper on insurance than a modded 1.0.

The 1.0 gets laughed at, it was never meant for speed and will never be...
