d 13? thats a itty bitty guy


i would swap it, even another d would be an upgrade


depending on where you live and what year it is there is prob a drop in without too much hassle that will be a much better starting platform

the cheapest way to get better acceleration and the cheapest is weight reduction. make sure to keep it tuned up and unless you wana spend money i say a ebay header and a custom cold air intake. but your going turbo later on the header is a waste lol :td:

sorry thought you said d15. im not sure if they make a header for the d13.

IF your trying to SAVE money....dont spend a dime on the 1.3 and Gutt the bitch, pull the sound deadening, the tar, A/C...p/s...spare tyre...all of it...and just save for a bigger setup.

if your tryin to save for a d16, dont buy anything for the d13. but if you want to; intake header exhaust SHOULD net a little more power/make it sound "cool"...

this a great site with tons of info, search around in the N/A forums like what was said. check out the general tech and noob forums as well and research what you need until you got the money saved up. enjoy your stay :)
