Thumbs up Tuner Scene in India

Hello Brothers,
I am glad I could post and let my brothers know my feelings towards fourwheeled beasts. Like most of them, I started my passion when I was young or ever since I remember. Born abroad and Dad owning an Garage that brings in everything from a Toyota Corolla to Rolls Royce, I had my time when I could touch and feel those beasts.
Been in India for the past 14 years I truly love my country. Only sad part is, I cant get my hands on, Skylines, Supra or 350Zs.
Cutting the long story short, Right now the Owner of a Santro Xing, a car i hated to the core. But mom owns a Palio 1.2, tat is much better. But I havent spared my xing, shez got attitude and if anyone has seen her in action, you would agree to that.
Now All I want to understand is the tuner Scene in my country. Well Americans are following the Japs and we need to catch up. As I mentioned earlier, we dont have access to those wonderfull machines like Skyline, Supra, Civic, 350z, Lexus, Rx8, Mx5, Mustang etc... We need to satisfy ourself with wat we got here... So I would like to know, whoz got wat and wat are they planning for their beasts/Babes.
I am closely following Tuner scene is U/S and I have few good friends who keep me posted. I am also planning to work out something so that things improve here.
Tuner culture is not a secret anymore, its risky but fun to evade cops on saturday nites. <<--- just a start
I intend no harm or pass the wrong information. However I would like to understand where we stand. And together we can improve our own rides.
Too much for now.... I guess

With Luv
Neo

Yes Bro U got that one correct. Its the same car... But Me aint telling you what I got under my hood. hehehe!!! Buddies!!! We definitely are. I am kinda isolated from the happenings out there. I just come with a bunch of buddies and go back home after having my own dose of adrenaline.
I know that guys out there got some cars tuned up and all ready for action. But what I am trying to find out it, to what extend the modds are.
Is it just The intake, Header and Exhaust thats been worked on... Or do they work all the way down to ECU flashing, Turbo Charging, CAMS, Piston, Injectors, Piggybacking Fuel Management, Nitrous, Engine Swap etc.
I am planning to get myself into the Neon and Show car business. I can get these things for real Cheap and I understand you are paying a hefty sum for similar stuff out here. Lets see how things work out and Hope to catch up and have some fun.

Bangalore Rocks....

Welcome to the board, Neo. With a signature like that you're either a lawyer or an auditor...

ECU remapping, mill swaps, forced induction methods, it's all happening in Bangalore. Welcome aboard.

So, is your car nitrous-ed or not?
