Opportune time for posting the review with the Ameo around in the 1.2 avatar. With sensible pricing, decent fuel economy and relaibility it might take off although refinement is not a match.

I know that a 1.2/1.4 turbo charged engine can easily compete with a 1.8 NA and the 1.2 inherently delivers better FE, but all I am saying is that one can extract more FE from a turbo charged engine because of its early peak torque delivery. This is a reason that the turbo charged engines have a smaller RPM band to play with.
I think this point is valid only for Highways . My Audi 1.8 TSI gives me 16 kms to a litre on my Mumbai Pune drives while it drops to 8 within city .

I was wondering if there's scope for extracting even more power from this Engine. I would love to have my Fabia 1.2HTP in a higher state of tune. What could be the pros and cons of modifying for more power? I was hoping if this 3cyl can be turbo charged
