Really hot tuning tips and advice.
Available in standard form with power of upto 92bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Nexia. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 101.2bhp to 156.4bhp 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.
An engine swap with that from the 92bhp Nexia Hatchback will give a massive power gain and provide a better base to work from. The standard Nexias are positively crying out for more power. Car Tuning Guide have been impressed with the addition of stainless steel exhaust systems on the Nexias , if you want to improve your top end go with an panel air filter made from cotton or sponge. You should also get a better fuel pressure regulator such as those supplied by FSE
FASTROAD CAMS should be next up on your tuning list and will offer reasonable power gains on the Nexia. Turn your attention next to the Nexias engine head. With a good gas flowed ported engine you will see much better mid and peak range power and some owners have reported more economy.
The top Nexia offers a base power level of 92 bhp. The car tuning guide would expect you to see power gains from 101.2 bhp to 128.8 bhp!
The largest power gains for NASP engines usually involve the addition of forced induction. Superchargers are generally easier to add aftermarket to a car than a turbo. With a turbo the boost curve is related to the engine speed making it hard to map. It is easier to map a supercharger because the boost is proportional to engine speed on a linear curve. High on your list of mods for your Nexia should be handling improvements. To avoid other problems you should lower the car no more than 36mm.
We will have more detailed Nexia modification guides in the near future. Please check the site regularly for updates.
