If I remember correctly, it helps but not that much(not much more than regapping the plugs did). Still doesn't beat the turbo in my Eco.

The 1.8 tune should adjust timing and fuel/air to help. A good intake and flowing exhaust would be good, too. Not much more you can do, from there.

Why I believe the 1.4 Goofie Balls are envious that we Don't need cruise control to keep our cruzens in a straight line .

111 things less to replace also ..

0.28 is recomended spark plugs Gap which is fine and dandy . which gives us the advantage over speculators .

We have a higher torque curve too . no waiting for that turbo to catch up .

What does cruise control have to do with keeping in a straight line? I use it to avoid speeding tickets as on a trip the car is so quiet you just don't notice the speed creeping up unless you constantly watch the speedo.

Get H U D .

It sounded good . Plus the Smurf stole the last remaining steering wheel with cruise control for under $100.00 .

Everything my car has is factory, including a sunglass holder above the drivers door where the grab handle would be. I use mine for a spare pair of regular glasses.

I am actually looking for a spare that matches my road wheels, the current spare is a 6.5 X 16 inch steel, while the road wheels are 17 X7 inch alloy.
