Induction kits are rubbish and i'd never read such a stupid teenage pornographic magazine as Max Power. their reader base are mindless teenage idiots. You clearly have no idea about car mechanics and induction kits, so please don't tell me. what's your top speed now then 37mph?

Thank you dam

The only way to make a nova go faster is roll it down a hill. Induction kits don't increase top speeds. And i'm not too sure about the person who mentioned about nos, whether or not it's:

a)true
b) If it's very dangerous if the car is not set up correctly.

I don't even know what an induction kit is, I just know that people who drive modified novas and actually think they are good cars are morons. Same goes for all crap modified cars.

If you want a nice car it is gonna cost you a helluva lot of money. You can't but an astra for £400 and stick bits of plastic on it.

They're cocky max power idiots. Too over-confident and don't have the skill to drive the cars the way they do. They hang around in shopping car parks pulling handbrake turns and burning their tyres out (why?? it only costs them money to replace them). Then they speed through built up 30mph limits at about 60mph. And don't get me started on their stupid ICE.

No-one wants to buy a car that's been modified because it's been driven around by a nutter, who's most likely smashed it up and repaired it himself. Not to mention they'd be too embarassed to be sen in it. I guess that's why they have tinted windows so they can't be seen

What's the worth tuning up your car if it's illegal to drive faster than 70mph on the roads anyways? I think most people do it to impress the girls.....

I was sceptical of induction kits before I had ago of my brothers calibra, and when i saw what it did for his car i decided to get one and i'm glad i did. Say what you like about boy racers and induction kits, some people have their car as their pride and joy, I for 1 am 1 of those people. Nobody wants to drive round in a rusty skip so thats why people modify them and to get more performance out of their cars, nothing wrong with that. And as for 70mph speed limits, have you ever been on a motorway? I was in a convoy of cars the other day who i didn't know and they were all doing about 95 - 100 mph and they weren't boy racers, they were probably something like business men and house wives. Before i passed me test i thought i'm not gonna do anything to my car but you then realise that the manufacturer don't put the top of the range gear in the car like seats so thats why i got some buckets, more comfortable and more aesthetic.

You bought a car without any seats??

Speeding on the motorway is a different thing to speeding in built-up areas. The motorway is fine, i've been 100+ and it was perfectly safe. Doing 50 is ridiculuous in built-up areas though.

Speed doesn't kill, it's the idiots behind the wheel that have sub-standard driving ability, and don't have any car control or any comprehension of the rules of the road. They kill.
