Greetings and Welcome to TorqueCars My Friend! :)

I believe that to turbocharge a N/A engine would involve many £££££'s :blink:
I am sure that somebody on here will have an idea as to the best way forward for your model car.

16 seconds :blink: hardly face distorting speed :lol: If more power can be squeezed from it then this is the best place to find out. Good luck

Hi and Welcome.

If the 0-60 time is 16 seconds, spending many ££££ time and effort would not bring the time down to below 8. You would be looking at a low pressure turbo, and even after adding this you would still be looking at 10-12 seconds. My first car was a 1.8 TD escort. She was about as fast as a sloth, and when the turbo went, she wasn't much slower. Id maybe think about a different vehicle if your after speed. If not, just enjoy your new car, and dont worry about the speed! :bigsmile:

Take it from someone who has went up the ayr shore in a clapped out Nova 5 before, your not going to turn heads driving a seat arosa diesel and your not going to be too chuffed with how quick it goes either!

Out of curiosity why were you looking at a seat arosa anyway if the intention was to get a quick car? If it's for cheaper insurance then you could still look to the realms of a 1.9 or even a 2.0 TDI that shouldn't put you too far out of place for your pound? You may just have to think a little latteraly about what you drive take for insance a VW Jetta which I think they have a PD170 engine although I'm not entirely sure. This is good for about 9 seconds standard and as it is less known than say my Leon for instance/ It for this reason that it shouldn't bite you as much for the insurance and your still getting a quick car with potential for more and relatively cheap insurance and relatively cheap to buy? If you have a look on auto trader there are about 19 on sale for less than £7k within 40 miles of Killie so not to far to go to find one either bud!

Worth looking at mate?
