Its not possible to increase power of Cedia from 115 to 185 BHP for the same capacity engine.Though the dimensions of rear seat can not be changed, the comfort level can be increased with use of good quality upholstery.Any car accessories dealer should be able to modify the seats as required.

Hi Alok,

You obviously cannot get such a substantial jump in power from the same powerplant, however there are few modifications you can make to the engine that will enhance the power by a few notches. The modifications can be as follows:

1. Changing the manifold and installing a free flow exhaust system - Approx 12k
2. Installing a K&N air filter with turbo suction - Approx 8k
3. ECU remapping - Approx 20k
4. Installing a turbo system - Approx 50k

While the first 2 are easily reversible procedures, the last 2 are more complicated.

Without altering the engine capacity, it is INDEED possible to get higher power output, but the modifications you will need to undertake are substantial. You cannot get all the answers in one simple response here, and you will have to do extensive research and legwork. Good luck.

Thanks for comments of BS Kumar and Shiv.
Good answers.People should understand,that it is not going to market and buying Brinjals.
Increase in Power is a RD job and unless it is done by Manufacturers of that Engine,it is not done properly by others.It will be better to study whether Cedia Engine can be turbocharged and how much will the increase be as per OEMs data.Contact CEDIA manuafactures or Engg Dept and I doubt they will answer to such individual questions.
If there is already a similar CEdia engine with turbo, and if the part number of The Block and Cylinder head are the same with both the models of Engine, you can do it.

I cannot believe how retarded the answers to this question are! yes of course it is possible to increase the power just fit a boost/fuelling computer and wind the boost up! if this is too heavy for you then fit a decent sized front mounted intercooler with good alloy piping, cold airbox with K&N filter and a 3" exhaust from turbo back. you people need to get a life and learn something about modifying engines before you reply with useless information!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can be done if done properly changing the intake and exhaust manifold and upgrading ur sparkplugs for higher heat resistance and of course adding a turbo

May this is a too late for a reply but cedia can have a turbo but you will have issues with the oiling Its a great car unless you fiddle with the engine
