Hello from the UK!

I am soon to become the proud owner of a mint, 45000 mile, one lady owner, full service history 2001 Suzuki Swift 1.0 GLS.

Its already a perky little thing but I'm looking to re live my teenage years of country lane terrorism (downsizing from a Volvo 740 Turbo) and I would love to do some simple, inexpensive and easily reversible mods to make it a bit faster and better through the corners.

So far I'm thinking 40mm lowering springs with gti speck shocks, de cat abd big ass cone filter. I've also bought an OEM GSXR750 end can to replace the back box :)

Suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

Cheers.

If you really want some performance, you should look into 3tech's cams and advanced cam gears.

I've emailed them enquiring about those cams and shipping to England but got no reply. they sound well tasty!

What's the best air filter set up? I've read about the heated throttle body so surely I wouldn't need a cold air feed, I would love to just sit a huge cone filter on the throttle body :)

I've got IPD sways on my 740 and they totally transformed it so I know where you're coming from! What sway bars are available for the swift, OEM GTI ones? Or aftermarket?
