Hey,

I think you first need to concentrate on getting your car moving/working like a normal 1.5 then worry about the rest. You will just be wasting your money otherwise.

i suggest you go in for the plugs+wires and the k&n first.. after a few months down the line you can always save up and pic up the free flow..

If there is some issues i suggest you sort that out first.. It does not make sence to mod the 1.5L if its not moving..like what Viper says..
K&N - Stock replacement filter or the Universal set
plugs - Iridiums

Thumbs up

Hi,

Get the free flow done after you sort out your car issues first. I would not recommend Automech though. You will see more noticeable power gains from the exhaust than the filter.

Viper

PS - You could always go in for the power box

p.s. viper if not automech then?

automech is charging 9500 with ceramic coating + his rear muffler
8000 with ceramic coating + MY rear muffler (5zigen)

is that a decent rate guys?? cause i heard 8k with automechs muffler should be good.. (i.e. the entire free flow)

Hi,

I have personal reasons for not recommending Automech and I am not happy with his job.

He already has excellent tyres.

I dont think there is any one better than the automech for the exhaust job in mumbai i myself using it on my Honda & my earlier Ikon was also done through him, though i have imported 4-1 stainless steel headers rest thing was done up by automech only.

@ Buzzin H : you can do two things,
retain ur 5Zigen muffler and get 4-2-1 headers & free flow from automech or you can go in for stainless steel 4-2-1 headers similar like i have with free flow & your 5Zigen muffler, i am sure you will be very happy with the exhaust note after these mod
by the way is your ECM thing got sorted out ? do all mods after your car is back to normal.
