Can you post a pic of your filter position?
I too have the same setup, as i couldn't find any other place to fit it.

The filter is too large to fit behind the headlight and would hit the block or the power steering oil box.

Well, I doubt on having any problem to the engine as yet. Infact after installing the filter, the temperature has decreased, and is very evident on the heat temperature range (on speedo).
I also noticed a rise in my mileage, after installing.

Well but would definetly be interested to know how you have installed. Post a snap of your install.
Also could you mention what problem were you facing ?

The solution

1. A tachometer with 2 Cylinder setting, Very easy to connect and takes the rpm from 1 coil only.

2. Autometer/sunpro RPM Adapter, Using this the 4 cylinder setting will show the correct RPM


Harsh and i, both have SUNPRO tacho fitted onto our Xing's and it rocks


For more info check out Sunpro®

cheers

Hey tacho gurus, please enlighten me.

I wanted to fit a tacho in a WagonR which I believe has a DIS system, so I am getting a Sunpro CP7905 which can be set to two cylinders. Can the wiring be done DIY way ? This is the picture of a wagonR engine bay with the ignition coil. Where should the connection be made ?

There will not be any temperature decrease on the guage after installation of the filter. Once the engine reaches its optimum runnning temp the needle stays there.

There are a couple of dots on the temperature guage in between which the needle stays once the engine warms up.

Here is the way its installed in my car. Earlier it was installed the way as shown in your pic. Sometimes after long running i used to literally feel the engine running out of breadth and the air filter choking. After a halt it ll be back to normal.
After the change have not encountered such problems.

Mine is a non PS model and i think the position of my filter is the same place where the PS oil reservoir would have been. Not sure.

I am yet to feel any difference in the performance when the car heats up on long runs. haven't faced this problem.

Yup, there is a oil can in place where your filter is fitted, that too with metal pipes, so cannot be moved easily.

plus i am not in favor of any mods which i cannot remove before the car goes for service as it is under warranty.

the reason i got this installation done in this way, is coz there is no other place to fit the filter.

two changes i made is that the horn and the plastic plate that come in front of the filter is removed, to allow maximum fresh air flow in to the filter form the front grill.

also a flexible shroud that covers the bottom (between the filter and exhaust headers) and right side (between filter and radiator fan), to block hot air from both.

@jassi

Are you running an FFE? How good is it after the cold air intake kit?

yes I am running an FFE also and it was done by Raj Hingorani and Shabbir in bangy

Combined the CAI and FFE are the best you can do on a santro. Anything more is just a waste of time as hyundai cars are engineered very close to the limits unlike the hondas

now that i think of it, I do have one issue - the CAI pipe going towards grill has a wire going over it and that is rubbing against it. Anyone knows how that can be fixed. The damage can be seen in pic above, where the black color is fading at the point of contact

Dude, check out the difference between PS and NON PS..
theres no space for a set up like yours. Also somehow, my AC pipe, seems to be at a height that yours..

Yes i noticed that the AC pipe on yours is at a comparatively higher level. Also due to the PS oil reservoir you cannot place the filter there.

For me i do not have any issues like that.

How is the performance of the car with the raj headers? I have heard that he is supposed to be really good. I am running an FFE fabricated by Leela Auto House, Coimbatore.

it is pretty torqy with the often wheel spin going from 1st to 2nd. Acceleration have significantly improved and so have 0-100 times. Also my top speed went up to 155 (i think 160kmph) on GQ highway and i got to that speed much faster than my earlier trips.

Edit - Or maybe i am traveling a lot in the direction of wind these days :-)

Good to hear that. I have also observed the same just like you did and the car's hitting 170 on the speedo without any constraints.

Would a fuel pressure regulator be of any help to this car?

even with the 185 section tires, i would not be comfy hitting 170 on a santro but i did have plenty of throttle left at 160, i think i chickened out

as for fuel pressure regulator, i don't think i plan to squeeze any more performance out of this baby !! Let me know if it works out for you.
