    Hi guys and girls
    I have just got my first project in 20 years, last one was an MG metro turbo to give you an idea of how long!

    So, I have purchased an 03 Hyundai Coupe 1.6. Drove it once, loved it so bought it. Its only done 73k and everything is nice and tight but needs more power.

    Where I need a little help is making the following decision

    A: tune the hell out of the 1.6 (Air flow, exhaust, skim and port and fast rd cam, its already mapped and i have the facility to adjust.) then possibly add a small turbo

    B: Transplant a 2.5 v6

    In general what will be the overall best option considering cost, performance and irritation.

    Thanks Guys
    ps, im not to lazy to research, if we were talking Fords and Hondas I would be fine, i dont really want to go down the rabbit hole, i wont come back.

    Hello and welcome.

    A - adding a turbo is a big project. Huge.
    B - will it physically fit?

    Either option will be expensive, but you knew that, right? ;)

    I only paid £1000 for the car so got a bit of budget, do i want a revvy 1.6 or a grunty v6. the v6 should fit as there is a standard model with a v6 so was thinking it shoud be somewhat "simple" ( know I will regret thinking that)
