Rakesh, sucking im dust depends on where your driving.. I cleaned my filter after 20000 kms yesterday, and there was quite a bit of dirt.. The remap only feels much better now

Brake upgrade i would recommend. Just got a quote from tune up plus.. They make slotted and cross drilled rotors for the swift.. Approx Rs.12000/- for the upgrade.. Im now confused between brake pads and getting a rotor upgrade.. Any suggestions?

Actually I have started looking up options about the same. I was quite set on upgrading the rotors to grooved and cross drilled etc but then saw an article that mentioned that it wouldn't make much of a difference in daily driving - it was more of a race upgrade.

Another link mentioned that while upgrading to cross drilled would reduce the stopping distance from 100 kmph in a controlled smooth braking scenario, it wouldn't make much of a difference in a panic braking scenario.

This leaves me wondering what I must do.

Drive on,
Shibu.

shibu, it helps. I would recommend that you drive one and see. Peter might be able to help and/or visit Jerry's @ Thycad.

Costly though.

Even i actually want to drive one and see before taking the plunge.. Another option im considering is upgrading the master cylinder to the newer one, and getting uprated pads.. I have read and heard that a cross drilled and slotted rotor is usually noisier than usual, which im not ready to live with.

Congratulations on the mods. You are enjoying every momemnt of it for sure. The above par experience with Cosworth makes the package even better.

Cosworth's website mentions an increase in FE of 10-12%. What's your observation?

What's the impact of the remap on the turbolag?

FE has gone up. I dont drive that fast in the city and on my same commute route i can vouch for the increase in FE. Its has become even better because i dont use the AC now a days in the winters.
Lag is there.. but now it feels violent..

Are you calculating the FE? Can you mention the increase in a %?

So does that mean that the tubokick is more prominent now? Re-map should actually reduce the lag, or the turbo should kick in earlier no?

Sorry but i usually calculate FE over a long period of time, say 8000 kms, so can give u exact figures.. But i can safely say that a tankful usually lasts 10-15% more now, than it did before..
The turbo kicks in at the same rpm even now, and the turbo kick is more prominent.. Not sure if its supposed to be this way or not, but sure is fun!
