what mods can be done to get nice even hp/torque distribution through out the rpm range.
I want to build an engine that screams at high rpm range, but still has plenty of bottm end grunt.
I'll be starting off with a bone stock 16v 1.8, and aiming for 200 hp.
whats the answer? cams? exhaust? turbo? higher compression ratio?

You can adjust your distributor to get more bottom end response. ANd I heard there are a few other things that can help even out the torque/hp range especially on our 1.8's who lack the torque!
that's a good question though...anyone?
