I think the question has to be why !
Why not? No different to modding any car, but more interesting and fun to do it with something most people wouldn’t suspect. As someone on Pistonheads said, ‘a real sleeper’. Not a bad looking little car, but with the suspension, exhaust and engine mods, it ought to be a bundle of laffs to drive.Posted 4 years ago
If I had the money, I’d love to get a Jimny, get the drivetrain and suspension uprated, and shove a VAG 1.4TSi engine in it. Seeing as how those come with up to 180bhp as standard, and there are Stage 2 twin-turbo versions dyno’d at 250bhp, it would be… Lively! 😀
Also utter madness, but a torquey TSi would be great in a Jimny. I’ve read of 1.9 TDi engines in Jimnies, but that’s a big ol’ lump in a ikkle car!somafunkSubscriber
A perfect little pocket rocket of a car in my opinion, i’d be more than happy to have it for the tight n’ twisty Galloway roads up here and having driven a standard Aygo i can see why he choose to supercharge it, it handles surprisingly well for such a car with skinny tyres as standard but always felt underpowered to drive so this little beast with wide tyres, uprated brakes and suspension along with a stainless exhaust is a winner.Posted 4 years ago
My mates used to turbocharged Toyota Starlet in the 80s.
Well, few years later Starlet from Japan actually came with turbo.
I remember all my mates turbo charging Toyota Corolla Levin and all Toyota 4AGE engines then started to add ABS later on.
The favourite of all was to get a 4AGE engine into 80s Toyota Corolla E70 as this model has a very light chassis.
… those were the days.
p/s: now in UK I get screwed by car insurance company … 🙄 I mean I dare not even stiffen the suspension coil unless I want to pay a lot …Posted 4 years agoretro83Member

chewkw : Insurance premiums aren’t always that bad on modified hatches, I have declared all my mods on my 30yr old golf and pay £375 for protected fully comp with value of £5k, 1.9 Abt 16v engine (194bhp)/bilstein B12 shocks/eibach springs/uprated brakes/fully polybushed+vibratechnics engine mounts/quickrack/eibach roll bars front+rear/4-1 stainless manifold into jetex stainless exhaust/quaife diff onto short ratio gearbox/oz racing alloys etc…etc.
I’ve never had a claim, points nor accident in 20+ years of driving though and i do stay in one of the safest parts of the country, the car is fitted with a tracker so i guess that will reduce the premium somewhat.Posted 4 years ago
