Will the engine take 200 BHP without increasing its displacement or its bore size.

Hi,
The indian B15 engine stock may take the 200 but isnt very reliable. I am not increasing the displacement at the moment. I will be installing stronger parts in the engine. Anyway please find me a car 1st rather than changing this topic into a technical one.

Cheers
Dom

Hi Guys,
Picked up a 1999 Red 1.5 ExiS yesterday. In excellent condition. Colour is amazing. Got the company spoiler and the company mags along with it.

Thanks
Cheers
