Default Re: Awesome acceleration of a modded Palio 1.6

What's the power like? And isn't 200+ horses in a front-wheel-drive car a little much? I guess this Palio isn't meant for cornering. Half that power wouldn't be translated into performance around a bend.

That said, it's pretty impressive that your car manages such quick times. The 1.6 Palio is quite quick as it is, and yours is quite the pocket-rocket. I'm sure the 'box has been reworked as well. Could you share with us, all the modification details?

Great video!

Thats about to change.
I am in contact with someone who specializes in tuning Fiats and other European cars and is trying to get those products into India.
A few of his products are running on Indian roads.
I won't be able to share any more info as it may be against the forum's rules.

That said, whats the top speed of the stock 1.6 in India?
I don't know if it's just me, but me thinks i heard the blowoff valve whenever the guy shifts a gear The car could be turbo'd right?
