Well as someone who is nearly completed a turbo conversion on a figo... and someone who knows the figo's very well...I can without a doubt say if u don't plan on keeping ur car for over 10 years and if you have no technical experience yourself... I'd say do nothing more than a drop and a nice set of takkies.... to get any real fun power out of a figo is going to cost you. You could easily spend R10k on free flow and re tune and u would still not be happy with its "performance" as I learned the hard way. Unless you plan on going forced induction and have R30k to play with I would honestly say don't bother..it's a lot of hassle...nice sound system and set of mags and nothing more... If you want power for a fair price... sell your figo and buy 2 litre fistST.... you could trade your car and get oke with decent km... and you will have better torque and power for basicly no cost.. just the trade in

Agreed. Any mod on a 1.4 car does not make much of a difference, especially up here at the reef. Forced induction would be the best but with my experience and not even done yet, it is really REALLY expensive.
