We look at the latest Daewoo Lanos tuning parts and recommend the best mods. Read our complete Lanos tuning guide.
Available in standard form with power of upto 104bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Lanos. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 114.4bhp to 176.8bhp with modifications varying from a few DIY mods to some pretty major engine work. The higher you go the more unreliable the car will be and you should expect to have to rebuild the engine regularly if you want to extract silly power. A big forced induction upgrade would be needed to push beyond the 100bhp per 1000cc limit.
Daewoo mods should include an engine swap to provide a better base to work from. The ‘104bhp Lanos Hatchbacks’ is a real gem in terms of power. It would seem that Daewoo were not overly interested in producing a powerful version of the Lanos. Your first engine modifications for your Lanos should be a panel air filter, sports exhaust and fuel boost valve.
The modification that gives the best power gain on your car would be a fast road cam. Internal engine modifications that should be high up on your list would be polishing and porting the head. Some Lanos owners report increased MPG with a flowed head.
The top Lanos offers a base power level of 104 bhp. The car tuning guide would expect you to see power gains from 114.4 bhp to 145.6 bhp!
Adding forced induction will see big power gains but this is usually too expensive to be cost effective. Superchargers are generally easier to add aftermarket to a car than a turbo. Turbos give boost in proportion to increasing engine speed and this can make mapping difficult. The nice steady boost to rpm characteristics of the supercharger make them easier to mapSuspension improvements can dramatically increase the road holding and cornering of your Lanos. Although lowering improves handling you should stick to a drop of 35mm.
We will be covering Lanos modifications in more detail in the future so plase bookmark this site and check back for regular updates.
