Nope this is what I picked up from bangalore.
City as in Coimbatore - Race Course to the garage and back. About 50kms or so in a day on average.

Awesome ride dude! What you have under that hood is something that many of us Lancer owners dream of!
I hope you've removed the ad from the classifieds section

Wow awesome harrie. Brilliant looking car.

I got a real stupid query. Were the mivecs available in india or had to be shipped down? This has been pondering me for a while and what better place than here to ask the same.

They are imported. Either you import one yourself, or you buy the car/engine from the original importer.

The one you saw is a 2-door Mivec done by Arush, and was earlier grey.
Sorry for the confusion manveet.
I should have been more specefic.
I was talking about the engine alone.

Got it. I thought you jumped to that conclusion because both the cars were orange. My bad.

Hey Harrie congrats on that brilliant ride!!Guess its the right upgrade from the palio 1.6!!

But i am more interested in a comparison between the 1.6 palio and this!!I know it may sound stupid and is not a right comparison but still....

I would say MY palio and the mivec are similar in their power torque character. Only the mivec is like 50% more faster and more intense. Its also a lot more fun to drive bcas of the suspension and tires.

@kutlee the filter is mounted directly on the tb. Its like in the middle of the car. I have a sheet metal ducting to route the cold air to the filter. Have no problems during rains. But in case it pours as in kerela during the monsoon i have a cover for the intake.

since the air is chanelled, water will also be chanelled right? do you have a mesh inside somewhere to avoid getting bugs, bees, and small kids from getting sucked up into the engine bay? I am planning a pair of nostrils and a reverse scoop to throw hot air away. will have to with the repaint job. but recession!!
