They are pretty nippy as standard and put a lot of 1.6's to shame.
indeed, im trieing to figure out what engine would work well in a ZR, reckon K20a V-TEC'd ZR would be awesome and would embarrass a FN02 Civic (Which the engine is from) in both power to weight and corneringWell to be honest i've asked around and most people don't recommend doing too much to the 1.4, they recommend either, buying a 1.6 or 1.8 zr or plonking another engine in.
i've uprated my exhaust, going to do the manifold next. that i think will be it as far as the power upgrades go, might stick in an induction kit, not too sure yet.
all im going to say is the 1.4 k series is already a tuned engine. if you do too much you risk doing damage and reducing the life of the engine.
Fair enough, yeah at 18 insurance will be silly! I owned a group 17 Rover 620ti at 19... paid £2,000 a year for insurance! It did do 0-60 in 7 seconds though lol.i getting powerflow exhaust, enclosed induction kit, and manifold too lol then i will be looking at a 2litre turbo conversion when i got the cash
i am 18 matty so the insurance will make it impossible, i am going to wait til im 19 to buy the ZR so i can afford insurance
I beleive you at that mate them cars are stupidly over rated 150 bhp at the flywheel...hmmm cheers adam, u guys may or maynot belieive me but been in a 1.4ZR and we kept up with a Fiesta ST til about 80, only had a powerflow exhaust on it
i cant wait til i get mine saving hard for it
yer il try to do that when i got a spare min, working all hours of the day to get this car and will be after toowhen you get the ZR, the first mod to look into should be a free one, take the exhaust manifold off and get the weld blobs taken out of it, they can seriously restrict it, i think i'll see about mine when i'm off work next week.
