My first car was a Deawoo Matiz. I have a real fondness for the little car and always thought if it just had a bit more power it would be great. My question is how would you go about doing this? You would probably have to build the car up from scratch. You probably only keeping the shell and upgrading virtually everything else. I have seen minis with these engines, so I don't think it is impossible.
I would strip out the back seats and have a mini van type of effect in the back. I would also like a bit of gentleman's wood in the dash (like old jags). I would put two bucket seats and a killer sound system. Twin exhausts like a M3. It would be painted matte black with green flame decals on the sides.
If I do one day do this I would just like to go to the autoshop and not sound like a total dork. So what kind of upgrades would this car exactly need for such a engine.
