It is pretty easy to touch 200 (speedo reading), and maybe do a little bit more also. It hits the rev limiter in 5th at that point, and unless I want to take out the rev limit, no getting around that maximum. And for now, I dont think it is safe to take out the rev limit. And neither do I know how to take it out, it is just that I know it is possible...

It would be nice if you could post some pics of your car in front , back and profile view. By the way quality of picture is great , which camera are you using ? Am planning to buy a used Elantra , the only thing keeping me away is the front end of the car . I have seen a couple of neat front end make overs , just waiting to see your car's grille .

Some pictures of my Elantra CRDi
Quite some time I wrote about my Elantra. It is still my black stallion, but now with more enthu now that I have got him a Pete's Tuning Box (Stage 1) and a Green Cotton Filter so that he can breathe better. The lower end has certainly improved, but I am not sure if I am stressing him too much. I used to be driving the Lancer Petrol much famed for its Flat Torque, so good that it turns you a lazy pig. I think I should remind myself quite often that I am driving a CRDi with a boon in the form a Tuning Box.
I saw quite a few raised eyebrows with regard to the front looks of the Elantra. I had changed to the old horizontal grille and had body color paint. Looks much better since my car is Ebony Black; doubtful if this suits other colors. Yet to come across one.
Changed the tuning box and the filter from Peter's office at Cochin. Since then it has been quite smooth at all rpm ranges. Touched 185 en route Coorg. Checked the driveability by overtaking in the 5th gear and in that process "climbing" from 50-180 with jaw dropping ease.
Will wait for tadu to write his detailed report. Mine has crossed 47K and planning to take my car to MGF for service. Any comments? I am fed up of Popular in Trivandrum; they are poor workers and wicked too. They cheat you to no ends. Will write a detailed "satisfaction report" soon.
