Hi Gurpreet,
Its been a while that i updated my thread. Before i came back to canada i gave my gypsy to Mandeep to fix all the issues that were still there. So updates on the gypsy are :

1) The right front door was replaced with new one as there were alignment issues.
2) Mandeep found shattered glass pieces and paint chips in the carb and it was cleaned and re-tuned.
3) Free wheeling hubs are being installed to improve the performance when in 2WD.
4) Booster Brakes will be installed in a day or two.

All thanks to Mandeep as he is doing me a favour.

Regarding my trip to leh, i was stranded for 4 days in manali as snowfall blocked the road and after the road got cleared i was out of vacation days to continue with the trip. But on the good side, i had always plannned my Leh trip on a gypsy but since Gypsy was not 100% reliable at that time i had to take endeavour but anyways god wants me to go there on Gypsy so may be next year.

I am attaching few pics of Gypsy that were clicked by Mandeep.

Aha! nice! from what i have heard and read I think with Mandeep your Gypsy in the great hands.

Did you try the weber carb that you had bought? or it is still running on the esteem or is it the standard equip carb?

In one of the pics isnt it GotzUk's Gypsy? (and ofcourse yours in the background with the hood open)

Hi Gurpreet,
Yeah Mandeep is a great guy, we normally chat every next day and he is in ludhiana these days so he will pick up the weber from my home and will try to make it work to its best.

Right now gypsy is running on esteem carb with modifications to jets and reaches 115km/hr.

Yes, that's Vaibhav's(Gotzuk) Gypsy and mine with hood open as usual.

Hi Amar
Thanks buddy & you've exactly read my mind!!!
I am just in a delima whether to sell one of my jeeps and buy a Gypsy or alternatively wait for sometime and then buy a Gypsy!!!
I would love to immediately buy a Gypsy, but with the pain and hardwork that I have built my Ranger & Rover I am not sure whether to let them go or keep it!!!
I am slightly inclined with the 2nd option but this thing is certain that my 4th 4x4 will definitely be a 1.3 MPFI!!!

Harjeev,
You drove my Gypsy other day, Mandeep told me. Anyways, i have finally planned for an engine swap to mpfi. I just contacted Raj Kapoor and got a quote for it. Though it is bit expensive but transplant would be reliable.
Any feedbacks that you felt about the gypsy or any modifications needed.

No buddy!!! i drove Ashish's gypsy and sat in Vaibhav's while Mandeep was driving it!!!

We will get together soon and this time will drive your's!!! Love the color looks fabulous!!!

BTW why do you wanna change from 1.3 carb to a 1.3 mpfi!!! If you wanna spend money on the engine swap wouldn't it be better to straight away jump from 1.3 Carb to a 1.6 (Baleno)! Maybe that would cost a little more but that is what majority of the rally vehicles are running these days!!!
BTW I am still a novice when it comes to Gypsy's, so the experts will be able to recommend better!!!

I have a small sugestion, you can go for a baleno head and retain the carb bottom. Its a bolt on fit. If you do not wanna get in to the troubles of converting a carb to mpfi you can run the baleno head with twin webber carbs, it would better than the 1.3 MPFI engine.

Hi Harjeev,
The reason i am going with 1.3 MPFI is reliability, i don't know anyone who has successfully transplanted 1.6 MPFI and have reviews about the reliability factor.
If people are using that in Rally, it must be Raj Kapoor installing them.

Hi Pramod,
The reason why i prefer MPFi is high altitude self tuning, i already have a webber carb for my gypsy but the issue is fuel overflow and is only good for low end torque, i tried twice with the help of Mandeep but we switched back to Esteem carb with different jet settings.

You can buy a head, intake manifold and exhaust manifold with all the necessary wiring and ECU from a baleno and use your existing bottom. This way the engine would be legal and more powerful than a 1.3 mpfi. Since nowadays its easy to find totaled balenos as donors, the cost factor will also not be of big concern. In short its a complete win win choice.

Please ignore my ignorance, but does the Gypsy not use a divorced transfer case? If yes, then why limit yourself to Maruti engines, why not be a daredevil and give it some serious power (assuming the chassis etc can handle it).

I have heard this many times over and would like some more info here for my own knowledge and learning.

What are the advantages that we are looking at if we use JUST the baleno HEAD?

How much cost and what all would be required if the gypsy is already a 1.3 mpfi?

What about reliability? legality?

So, do you mean that you are NOT using the webber? If you are not, then I know someone who is looking for a webber carb for his 1.3 Gypsy. Let me know if you wana sell it to a fellow gypsy owner?
