Just curious how this engine takes to mods. My old car a ford probe with a 2.0L 4 cyl dohc engine didn't take well to mods and everyone who modded one knew it. With cat back exhaust, headers, and a CAI one would be lucky to get 10 whp. How does this engine compare? I am sure it is better however

The Tib handles mods very well. You may not get much more Hp then you would with a Probe but the car is so light that with every little bit you will notice it.
I can tell a difference with just an intake on my car.

ok, from what i have read it takes very much better to mods, with the probe engine which was 120 hp at start one could add 2k of stuff and only be around 160, only turbo would push 200 hp if it was well supported with other mods

This car kicks ass! do the hedder, cat back, cold air intake, and you'll be alot faster than stock.Put it this way I raced my friend last night he has a 93 ford taurus SHO and I killed him off the line and beat him by 3 car lengths in the 1/4 mile it was an automatic but still the come with 225 HP! not bad for a four banger!<img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>
