Rover 416SI saloon
Hi I'm new here, I've got a Rover 416SI, and wondered if anyone could give me some tips on how to get a little more BHP out of it without having to spend any money as I'm a bit tight at the moment, thanks. :D

Couple of fast road cams, sports exhaust (Scorpion is my Rover Fave) and an induction kit (with a cold air feed) will do quite a bit for you. Those engines are pretty solid although can be a little Torque Shy low down - I guess thats the Honda heritage though. See what Moto-build have to offer in the way of cams.

For budget tuning get a panel air filter and cut 4 inch wide holes in the bottom of the air filter housing (use a spare from a breakers yard). If you are planning to change the engine then I would concentrate on suspension and handling mods for now.
