My sister has a 2.0. Are there any worth while mods i could do to it? I dont know if its worth the effort, its pretty slow, but it would be cool to get my sister more interested in modding cars.

BTW its auto.
no one in my family consulted me before they bought the car, even though i am a big car enthusiast. It would be a fun car if it had more power and was manual.

An automatic 2.0?
I have a 5 speed TDI with 90 hp.
Ask your sister if she wants to race for pink slips... hahaha
I wouldn't modify that car. No offense but $3,000 later it is still going to get it's ass handed to it by stock Japanese economy cars.
The 2.0 is not a performance engine no matter how many thousands of dollars you waste trying to convince yourself it is.

a chipped/exhaust/cammed 2.0 will NOT outrun a stock 1.8l/2.0l 16v thats running in good tune.

ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
you need to come out of the little world you live in and find someone to give you a ride in their 2.0 turbo, auto or stick, it will SMOKE a stock Japanese car, aside from a WRX, but even those can be beaten by a properly tuned Dub

it is better to be an idiot and not say anything rather then open your mouth and prove it

You can get a chip and a K&N filter for the car for around $150. Fairly cheap and a noticable improvement.
Might be enough of a 'power increase' to whet her appitite for more mods. But, if she doesn't want to tune it further, you're not out too much cash.

Agreed! http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Funniest part is that the WRX uses a 2.0l turbocharged engine
... 'course it's not a VW 2.0 but I still think that's funny

Yeah, that is a horiz. opposed 2.0 at that... I wish more manufacturers made horiz. opp. engines... they are really smooth

I got a ride in a wrx once... really cool... the power on those are so smooth that during a 0-60 you can't believe your actually accelerating that fast.
