Hi to all, I'm Tibor Kertesz

I have a 206 1.6 16v and I want to upgrade it, but where to start?
I've done minor modifications: new intake made of 3" aluminium pipe and conic filter; I took out catalytic converter, middle muffler and the original last muffler was replaced by a Flowmaster 40 series; It has a Catchcan made with a 3" pipe; and it has a ProRacing performance chip. In the exterior it has original repainted (black and silver) rims and Sonar front lights.
My plan is to lower the car 40mm, by buying new front springs and lowering the back torsion bar ( don't know if I need to lower it). I wanted to buy new lowprofile tyres, but here are too expensive (if you find it) so it's inconvinient to get lowprofile tyres.
My budget in dollars now is low ( 400$) because our government doesn't let us buy more than 300$ per year ( but there are ways to obtain more dollars).
I'm looking for help and knowledge in this forum for tuning my 206, and what I've done and with the budget I have, what can be done?

Greetings and welcome to our TorqueCars forum :)

You have done quite well so far with your budget, unfortunately there is a good company here in the UK that specialise in Peugeot performance parts, but your available budget will not go very far once you factor in the shipping costs etc to your country.

yes , that's a problem. But i readed in some forums that for lowering the car you can buy new lowering springs and taking out the torsion bar and spinning it 2 "clics" its possible and safe to lower tthe back of the car. So what should I do? use meanwhile the original dampers ? . Also i'll make a coolcan , I have never readed about a coolcan in a 206 , it would work on it? the temperature sensor will read the cooler gasoline and the computer will inject more fuel? in some car it works , but in the 206 will work?
