hey guys how you all man i am rohan 18 year old have been checking out this site since a month
after reading about the meets i was a bit interested in joining you all sometimes
about my self - self = car Love it like crazy .!!lol!!!
i drive an opel sail 1.4 and an opel corsa 1.6
sail was bought for my sister and corsa was supposed to be mine but i dont know why somehow im more attatched to the sail
i like zipping through traffic and prefer racing with the sail so exchanged it with sister
drive feels almost the same but my corsa is 1.6 and sail 1.4 so the corsa is a bit faster. my sister loves drag races so we used to have small drag races on my lane or some dead end road...sometimes i used to win because of my shifting and sometimes she would smoke me because of her 1.6 engine.
two months back i went to automech. got freeflow and stock replacement filter for the car.now my car easily smoke a 1.6 corsa anyday
i wanted to ask all of you people what modifications can i do to my car now. i thought of turbocharge but then i do not know where to go for it and i also want to know the charges and the increase in power and effect on fuel efficiency as my corsa sail 1.4 has been giving only 7-8 kmpl.i would even like to do something to the body of the car.like a whole new bodykit.

total cars in the family are
opel vectra
2 opel corsa's 1.4 and 1.6royale
an old opel astra
2 opel corsa sails both 1.4
opel corsa swing 1.6
honda city v-tec

you guys must be knowing me because i go clubbing very often in my sail which is very loud and i feel the only sail with freeflow.
