The Car Tuning Guide look at the Scorpio tuning options. Which are the best modifications for the Scorpio.
Available in standard form with power of upto 206bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Scorpio. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 226.6bhp to 350.2bhp which seems almost too good to be true but is possible if you have deep pockets.
To go over the 100bhp per 1000cc limit you would need to be running a pretty serious forced induction setup. If you head for a maximum power figure you need to expect a lot of unreliability. See this link for more details on Engine Tuning
The more powerful Scorpio Saloons provide a suitable donor engine for the lower powered models in the range. There are some star performers in the Scorpio line up. With a few mods you will make yours a road scortcher rather than just a hot hatch.Your first engine modifications for your Scorpio should be an induction kit, sports exhaust and fuel boost valve.
The Car Tuning Guide recommend that on the Scorpios , you get a fast road cam. Internal engine modifications that should be high up on your list would be polishing and porting the head.

Ford put together a nice package but the turbo Scorpio owners have a real tuners dream. A remap and Intercooler will add a lot of power to the engine and in some cases you can double your power. The top Scorpio offers a base power level of 206 bhp. When setup for motorports we can expect to see almost mythical power figures approaching 267.8 bhp to 391.4 bhp! Suspension upgrades are next on every Scorpio owners priority list. The Car Tuning Guide do not recommend lowering more than 35mm.
