Default can i mod .. or redesign allway

first of all would like to salute all of you guys helping the numerous people out here.. was just going thru the threads..
no i also face a problem..
i own 3 cars.. a santro xing.... an esteem and a scorpio..
the thing is that i went in for a santro as i needed a compact car for day to day commuting which could be easy to manouvere.. the thing is that i love to do some stunts with my pals and i have noticed that the centre of gravity of the xing is not very much in the centre.. whenever i try to drift at speeds of 90 thats the highest i have tried to perform.. the car acts like its about to loose its balance.. the thing is that i would have opted for a palio had it not been for its companys fate.. so now i am thinking as to what should i do to make the car more stable.. should i get the car redesigned or fit in a new engine by making a mods to the chassis..
what would be the best option.. i have seen stuff done by guys here,. so i need yopu guys to help me ,make the xing faster.. stronger and more aerodynamically viable...
can the xings be turocharged.. or am i just asking too much.. ive seens the zens with the baleno engines.. so why not with the xing!!!
hoping for positive replies

Unfortunately the xing will not be a car to mod....the chassis is not built to take much power....and about the handling...its certainly top heavy...ofcourse you can stiffen up the suspension...but that would help matters only to a certain extent.

You can turbocharge any engine...but then turbocharging puts a lot of stress on engine components which were designed originally to be used without a turbo. So huge amounts of costs would be involved in modifying the engine for a turbo. Certainly not worth the effort.

You are better off modding the esteem which has got great potential. Others will be able to help you more in this matter.
