I dont care as much about the looks, as I do for the performance.

My votes would go to

1. Petes Honda City Vtec - Now sold, but was the cleanest turbo job on a Vtec. It sure has left an impression

2. Sideways awesome EVO Lancer.

3. Mad Monkeys Skoda RS : Black car, black wheels and black tints. Upgraded rubber + suspension. Chip upgrade. A clean car which has power and daily useability. And a truck load of ATTITUDE!

Hi,

For cosmetic mods its Arush all the way. And for performance mods my vote would also go to Ford Rocam's Honda followed by Turbo India'a Skoda RS.

Read this list...

Quote:
Engine had to be changed from the existing 1.5 one to 1.8 ISZ.
Front suspension had to be modified to accommodate disk brake.
Pre-historic dynamo should go and alternator should come.
Reinforce the chassis/sub frame to house the Isuzu 5 speed gearbox.
Reinforce the middle floor area to mount the two piece prop shaft joint.
Replace the rear axle/differential housing to an Isuzu one.
To accommodate that extra 6 inches length of rear axle/differential, tap the body out.
Change the location of clutch/brake/accelerator pedal. Instead of mushrooming out from the floor they should be suspended from the top.
Work out a linkage to position the gear lever close to the driving position.
Change the entire dashboard assembly.
Make bucket seats (During that time it was not available in the market as option).
More lumbar support on all the seats.
Put vacuum booster to supercharge the brakes.
Make enough room for stereo system controls.
Bring the hand brake lever in between the front seat (this was one big let down for overall Ambassador design).
Change the wheels to 13inches from 15inches.
Tap the bonnetís sharp curve to a rounded smooth one.
Re-position the rear number plate down and have plate lights from Maruti 800. (When SUMO can use it blatantly then why not me?)
Put anti-roll bar in front.
Add tachometer. Simple one though.
Add rear wiper.
Add windshield washer. Front and back.
Remove that ugly fuel cap. Hide it inside. Give me a flick lever next to my seat.
Have air conditioner. After all this, you need one.
If this is not a mod, what is?

BTW, Arush is a professional unlike rest of the modders under consideration. Not sure whether putting him in the same category as others is fair. Therefore my vote goes to Rudra, followed by Edmund.

please read carefully ..."it hasnt been modded for power"--this is what i told ...

none of the mods that you quoted will increase performance....

BTW just got to know that rudra's amby does have a few mods which does improve performance which i was not aware of ,and i dont think you have also mentioned any of those
