outa your previous posts the leon is probably the best bet.
i had the 1.8 at 180bhp standard, according to diagnostics it was sitting just over 210bhp and 260ftlb 6 was around 6.3 when i was logging - few mods done but nothing major
a good couple of grand on the engine- turbo, intercooler, exhaust and injectors, then around another grand on the gearbox for the flywheel and clutch - OEM or uprated both cost around £1k over here in parts. a change to a single mass flywheel from the dual would be advisable
lose alot of the weight from the car, rear seats spare wheel etc
and youll need a good mapper and i dont think youll be that far off 5.

but are you sure its 4wd ? i didnt think the leons got the haldex in any shape or form - dont even think there was a v6 varient. and thats why they were normally a little quicker than their TT equivalents -being close to 200kgs lighter iirc and less drivetrain loss

now can i ask why the 5seconds is so important to you ? other than when i was playing about i never really took off hard instead used the extra power and torque for overtaking

Got to admit mate the Starlet's a bit of an underated car in amongst the rest of them as it can be good for whatever your budget wants it to be as it is easy to lighten and tighten! Anyway in terms of what you would need to do read the above quote as this is it in a nutshell! The only thing I would say is if this is going to be a daily driver then your going to suffer from lack of everything, comfort, low noise, ride height etc but other than that good luck!

I'm guessing you mean 100kph? 0-100kph in 5 seconds.

If so just buy an s-type r

We have been through this many times. If we all did that then most of the members of this site would disappear :) The fun is making a car that dosen't do something do it.
