Smile How can I get more power out of my engine

Hey guys Innocent here I was wondering, how can I get more power out of my 2E engine, without doing major mods?

Engine specs:
Carb type
12 valves
1300cc

One more thing, what can you say about installing ground wires?
good
or
waste of money

Well, for the price their selling them, you could make 10 kits by yourself. If you seriously want to try it out, then I suggest you make your own, otherwise it definately is a waste of money. I'm not all that believing on the fact that they give you power... .

For a 2E, there really isnt much you can do, you can start by making your own parts for it, twin carbs (not big ones) and start from there. Or just get the EFI intake and slap on a turbo

There's got to be another way flash. An increase of 10-15 HP would be ok. That is, if its possible.

Well I think 10-15 might be far fetched without bigger investments :P

How much HP would I gain if I had a racing filter, 4-2-1 headers and muffler installed?

Id say between 0-15hp if you design the whole thing properly... But... keep in mind with a poorly designed system you might end up losing power.

without forced induction i'd say to keep the stock extractors, you'll keep the low end torque, but replace everything else with manderel bent 2 or 2.5 inch tubing

2.5 on a 1.3?! you gotta be joking ! 2.5 is too big on most 1.6's.. for 1.3 I'd say like 1.75-2" max.

I say get rid of the 2E and replace it with a more powerful engine.
You're in the Philippines, you should have easy access to surplus engines from Japan.

I would love to get rid of the 2E engine if not for the high price of gasoline here in our country. So i guess the best bet would be installing the 2" pipe 4-2-1 headers.

I'm not sure about the carbs I dont think the brands u mentioned are available here. But i'll ask someone to hunt around.
