Smile Hi all

This is karthik from bangalore..i'm 23 years old, crazy about all things cars and motorsports ,with a neverending thirst for performance, typical of every member here.... Feels great to be among like minded souls..

I am into developing aftermarket engine management systems. I (and my dad) own a carb esteem, a grpN mpfi esteem, a 63 VW type 3 variant and an RD350.

Wow, that's good tech. You're going to make some friends here, since you're another BangyBoy!!!

Welcome aboard! Do tell us about your Group N ride, and the VW (mod details) and the other rides too.

Thanks for the warm reception guys...

My carb esteem has a modded head. I have done the porting and polishing. It is shaved by 1mm too.

The other car is a rally prepped mpfi esteem, i bought from a rallying friend of mine. I am still a rally virgin. Hopefully will enter the next year.

The VW as of now has a stripped engine, waiting to be rebuilt. It has a 1.6L twin carb air-cooled flat four. You need a LOT of time and patience with the older rides. Somehow always felt the air cooled VWs have an emotional side you fall in love with... I have the original owners manual and a couple of workshop manuals, in case anyone needs copies of them.

And coming to our EMS, the follwing will summarise the types-
1. Fuel only-standalone(for carb to efi conversion) and piggy back(alter existing).
2. Fuel,Ignition,and other features (i'll reveal them later) - standalone and piggyback.

The systems are in final road testing stage, and have already been raced in a couple of events.


How often and where do the bangalore meets happen???
