has anyone else heard some outrageous claims about bhp and engine mods?

was chatting the other day and a guy claims he bored out this 1.4 to a V6

and have been laughing about it ever since.

:laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Was he being serious?

For outrageous claims see ebay where it is claimed a computer fan can boost your bhp by upto 200bhp.
That's just one of the fine examples.

this ****** thinks he is correct.

stolen off another site

he wrote

''I agree with your point, but the car is a little quicker than the standard SXi and so I felt the SRi badges were appropriate. It only carries 1 person, Me. It has no extra weight in the car, all glove compartments, cubby holes and the boot is empty. The rear exhaust may or may not add power. It has only ever run on Optimax, I know you get more boost out if this fuel on bigger engined cars but every little helps. The tyres are always inflated to 38 PSI to give extra grip and less tyre slouch. Often I put the rear seats flat, this reduces weight. (Like why you crawl flat across a frozen pond so as not to break the ice). I regularly drive with around £10 of fuel, again weight saving, and often I use engine cleaner in the fuel load to remove debris from the fuel injectors. The car is always clean improving aerodynamic progress. I have timed the 0 - 60 at 9.3 seconds, and this shaves a couple of seconds off the standard time. Hope this answers your question.''

doesnt reduce the weight on ice, just spreads it out because there's more surface area in contact with the ice. with cars, there's 4 tyres on the ground and that doesnt change. as for the tyres @ 38psi... he's f****d if the police stop him, 3points per tyre! :laugh: :laugh:

can i have a link to this please???

i think a tyre with 20 psi would have more grip.:shocked:
