I have owned 2 Fiat Spiders and enjoyed driving them on twisties; I've never taken them to a track or felt the desire to max them out, performance-wise. Just loved the top down vibe. I kind of knew not to take them more than 50-75 miles from home just in case.... Fell in love 2 years ago with the Sol and can't wait to get it, probably by 9/16 if all goes right. The thing is, I've started being aware that perhaps 177 hp for this car may not feel like enough. Coming from me, someone who never really cared about this power issue, seems odd. Am I falling prey to the hype of possibilities? That said, here is my question; If I were to consider performance enhancing mods which are the least cost/ most bang for the $, and is there a HP # that anyone could state is "enough" that would make the general public say "GM should have made that the base HP" ? I know different folks like different amounts of speed and power but for the general enthusiast does the # I am asking for exist for a car of this weight and size? I'll open the bidding at 195 hp. How do I get there without major engine mods?
