Really hot tuning tips and advice.
Available in standard form with power of upto 212bhp (depending on the year), so this goes to show the tuning potential of the Laguna. From this you can increase the power from anywhere between 233.2bhp to 360.4bhp 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 212bhp Laguna Hatchback will give a massive power gain and provide a better base to work from. There are some star performers in the Laguna line up. With a few mods you will make yours a road scortcher rather than just a hot hatch.Laguna tuning projects should generally start with some improvement to the intake/exhaust of the engine. So get a stainless steel exhaust and good quality induction kit. A good fuel pressure regulator will up the throttle response.
The next level of modifications involve taking more aggressive action. The Laguna responds well to a fast road cam which is one of the best value mods out there. Turn your attention next to the Lagunas engine head. With a good gas flowed ported engine you will see much better mid and peak range power.
The top Laguna Hatchback offers a base power level of 212 bhp. The car tuning guide would expect you to see power gains from 233.2 bhp to 360.4 bhp!
The forced induction Lagunas are around with some impressive Turbo and supercharger conversions being done. These give impressive power gains over standard but require a lot of effort to get working properly. If you have a turbo or supercharger get the intercooler uprated for even more power. The Lagunas come in various power levels right up to 212bhp. On a motorsport prepared Laguna it is possible to achieve power figures of anywhere approaching 275.6bhp to 402.8bhp. But this sort of power requires some pretty heavy investment and a hell of a lot of engine work. Suspension upgrades are next on every Laguna owners priority list. To avoid other problems you should lower the car no more than 36mm.
