    The silly HP race

    The current trend (in Europe at least) are smaller engines, reinforced by either a supercharger or turbo or both. Check out Audi, VW or Seat, 1.4 litre engines (TFSI) with a nice turbo on top.

    Air intake swap info needed

    I agree, buy cheap, buy twice. Currently im running with a Pipercross Venom, but before I came to that conclusion I've walked this path: OEM paper filter > K&N Replacement Filter > K&N open powerfilter > Raid HP Powerfilter > Pipercross Venom The Venom works very well for me and is a good...

    Hello from a Renault Megane Coupe MK1 owner

    Cat Cam experiences

    I wanted to ask if any Megane Coupe MK1 1.6e owners have any experience with swapping their stock camshafts with a catcam or so.
