Ok, well body effects is enough... concentrate on the motor now. Start with a cool air intake, and then get a new exhaust. And by exhaust i mean a real system, not just buying a fart can and thinking it did something, either buy a prebuilt cat-back system, or buy a high flow muffler from a good company like borla or flowmaster, and take it to a muffler shop and have them fit it with larger pipes from the cat, though a high flow cat will make a big difference. Then next would be a pretuned ecu or a dyno tune.

You say it's a turbo? I'm assuming it's an aftermarket turbo, as the only Metro's with a Turbo, was the MG version...Unless I'm missing something, lol. You're not one of those 'Boy Racers', are you? lol

For some real mods, maybe upgrade the intercooler, larger high flow intake, high flow exhaust with headers, Dyno tune after wards. Then if you have some serious cash, port and polished heads, new cams and lifters. Then larger turbo.
