*(The MSD coil and controller were bought from america for a total of approx.$220)

If anyone knows if its possible to remap ecu for santro,please let me know..thanks guys..
and what other mods ? if these are the only mods then I think you did some mods which are a waste of money.
You are simply spreading these myths to other Bhpians also...
Why are you upgrading your ignition system so much ? whats the point unless you have some other hardcore mods...

forget abt this mod, on a stock engine there is not much to gain by just only fooling the IAT sensor.

No use, spark wires is the last mod you should be thinking of considering the level of tune of your stock car.
Its just a marketting gimmick.

strut braces on a soft stock suspension designed for Indian potholes, stock shock absorbers and stock tires designed for durability and mileage is an overkill.
You will never feel the difference unless you do some real heavy cornering on a track, im doubtful whether you will be able to push your car to such a level in order to feel the effect of strut braces or even encounter such conditions on the road.. unless you ae preparing a track day car

hi chetanhanda,i dont mean to spread false rumours or anything, but after after installing the MSD ignition system, there really was a drastic change in performance, the high end was extremely different..it pulled a lot harder. and after i removed the system, the change was clearly noticeable.. as for the plug wires, what i noticed was that the power delivery was slightly smoother in high end again..i dont know if that was just with my car in particular ,but its definitely what i noticed since i'm the only one driving my car daily..i'm sure the effect of the ignition system would have been more with other hardcore mods, but even with the mentioned mods it did make a noticeable difference..sorry if you guys felt that i was spreading rumours, but in all honesty i just wrote what i observed..thanks guys..

Woow sparks plugs = Turbocharger.

Jokes apart. I really dont think upgrading plugs are any use except maybe if your drving your car for say more then 10 hours at a strech then they will give you constant power throughout same at the 10th hour as it was at the 1st hour, i.e there wont be loss of power anytime since these plugs have higher heat rating.
