Ford tuning guide, we take a look at the latest and greatest tuning mods for the Granada and report on the best trends and latest power tuning mods.
Available in standard form with power of upto 197bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Granada. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 216.7bhp to 334.9bhp 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.
If you have one of the lower powered Granadas you should think about an engine swap with the engine from the 197bhp Granada Hatchbacks. The already BHP endowed range of Granadas reward tuners with a satisfying power gain. Car Tuning Guide have been impressed with the addition of stainless steel exhaust systems on the Granadas , if you want to improve your top end go with an air induction filter. You should also get a better fuel pressure regulator such as those supplied by FSE
The Car Tuning Guide recommend that on the Granadas , you get a fast road cam. Getting better flow through the head of the engine would reward your Granada with more power. So get the engine head polished and ported.
The most powerful Granada Hatchback in our database offers 197 bhp. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 216.7 bhp to 334.9bhp with mods we have outlined above.
You will get even larger power gains for these tuning mods on a Granadas. A simple remap and better intercooler will almost double your power.The top Granada offers a base power level of 197 bhp. When setup for motorports we can expect to see almost mythical power figures approaching 256.1 bhp to 374.3 bhp! Many Granada owners improve the handling of their cars with slightly stiffer springs. A drop of 35mm will work well on most cars, any lower and you will hit other problems.
