I have a Rover 25 1.8 auto, the engine seems really decent for a 1.8, obviously the auto box slows it down, so I wondered what mods I could do to get the power up a bit.

I noticed that a company turns the 1.4 into a 1.8, that has 140 bhp (non-VVC). It seems the only mods in it that would differ from my 1.8 were a 52mm throttle body and alloy inlet manifold from the ZR160, and some higher lifting long-duration cams.

So would it be quite possible for me to take my engine from 115bhp to 140bhp with these mods, plus perhaps induction kit and sports back-box?

Thanks
