have been busy releasing the potential of the Honda 2.2 CDTi turbo diesel lump, and the result is a remap that gives the car is8bhp and a massive 287 lb ft of torque. That's a whopping 14s lb ft more torque than the range-topping Civic Type-R Costing just over 200, this is a must-have upgrade for diesel Civic owners. Check out www.tdi-plc.com for full details. There really is no replacement for displacement, and while small-capacity turbocharged engines can produce huge power, big-capacity N A...

Fancy becoming a professional racing driver Read on any of us who have spent hours hacking around racetracks on Gran Turismo would dearly love to be doing it for real all the time. The trouble is, though, entering professional motorsport costs a damn sight more than a PS3 and a widescreen telly. And just because you've beaten your mates on the PlayStation, that doesn't necessarily mean you're going to be good behind the wheel. Or does it Nissan and Sony have just announced that they will be...

How They Work

Above Screw-type superchargers are more efficient than Roots C Roots superchargers move a fixed amount of air Superchargers are known as air pumps and a Roots simply shifts air quickly from one side to the other - it has no compressing action and is known as a positive displacement supercharger because it moves a fixed amount of air. We'll see the difference when we come to discuss centrifugal blowers later. Traditionally, this type of supercharger is relatively inefficient - the air is...

They're cheap to buy and simple to fit, but can a strut brace actually improve your handling You can rarely improve your car's performance for under 100. and the few cheap performance upgrades that do exist (uprated bushes, for example) are often very expensive to fit. Thankfully, there is one notable exception to this rule the strut brace. A suspension strut brace simply bolts to your suspension turrets and prevents them from flexing under hard cornering. It therefore potentially improves both...

Info

This Colt started life as a bog-standard 1.6'ltr with barely lOObhp to its name, but when current owner George 1 lokin purchased the car, it had already been been treated to a 2.0ltr V6 Mivec engine conversion from Mitsubishi's ITO coupe. At the time, George had been led to believe that it was merely a shell with an engine, so he was surprised to find that it was only one headlight away from being complete, as well as finding over iflOk in receipts for work already done. The fun wasn't to hist,...

Canards sit at the front corners, and they don't just look tough - they act it, too. Michael laughs, I've tripped over them a few times when walking around the garage or washing the car - that's pretty sore Michael is especially keen on the rare HID headlamps, which he spotted on eBay one night. I had to have them, he beams. They're secondhand, but bidding was up to 2HO and I made a mad offer of 450.

However, this would eventually lead to the Colt's downfall. The ST orange is impossible to panel match, so a full respray is required if any one panel is damaged, George explains. A minor incident in a car park left the Coll with just such damage, and due to the cost of a full respray, it was essentially a write-off. George eventually decided that, rather than repairing the Colt to its previous configuration, it was time to go all-out and fit the Evo engine he had always...

For anyone who thought the engine bay looked pretty menacing, what's in the boot area will blow you away. A custom surge tank connected up to a one-off cooler takes centre stage, while an extractor fan keeps the air flowing to drastically lower the temperature of the fuel, which is an easy way to boost power. Pressure is maintained by a pair of Power Enterprise pumps fed by a third Nismo pump inside the tank. Everything is neatly arranged, with custom cut and bent aluminium piping joined by...
