Dont think you should go just by whats written in paper, the MJD is very revv happy and any day better than the Honda. Reliability has also been proved. In the real world, the performance of MJD cars can be vastly different than what the figures say on paper. In fact in stock form 90 bhp is pretty good with less weight of the Zest.

So Amit how is the remap treating your car now after a year. Any changes noticed in terms of drivability or mileage?

First the projector lamp setup. And now this. You will just not give up on the Linea, is it??

Very good review. I am following your thread closely and will love to see the car in person when in Pune.

2 questions though -

1. How many KMS had the car done when you made the switch?
2. How many KMS has the car run on the remap?

This is truly, in the proverbial sense - A WOLF in a Sheep's clothing!!

Hey Amit, just went through this thread. I am planning to get my Swift ZDi remapped. The car is a 2013 one that's done 1.13L kms. Have a few questions for you:

How is the car doing?

How many kms done since the remap?!

Any reliability issues?

How is the support, just in case in you need them?!

Will do
From my side you will have to wait a bit
Weekdays are in city traffic and weekends are at home or with friends

I am on Map 4 as default as of now.
Unable to find a difference
I am told that in this map - once it settles - will do around 112 - 113 BHP & 240 NM Torque

And this is the stable map
I am told that anything more aggressive than this on the current MJD - in inexperienced hands - can lead to the turbo packing up.

So which led to the next thought - how do I rejuvenate an existing car - at hopefully a very very low price - and still have it be safe.

So here is the wishlist

1 Try and source a bigger more reliable turbo - (MGP has the 1.6 MJD Turbo at INR 52K) - this may not be a direct bolt on - some flange and pipe diameter changes may / would be required (labour I am told can come for easily 15K)! And even if done successfully, Rajiv feels that currently there is no map for this and it would take a lot of doing and even then it could have a flat or empty low end (~ 2500 RPM)


2. Assuming the fit and map come through for the above.
Then look for a larger IC - there is another thread for this - A DIY has been documented.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/diy-do...nea-t-jet.html (DIY: Bigger Intercooler Install for Fiat Linea T-Jet)

3. Reroute via ducting the air intake to a cooler part of the bay.


If the above 3 come through cleanly - maybe one can look at a 140 HP, 320 Nm out of the 1248 cc MJD.

4. If need be - try and see if the Linea Cruise control can be implemented on my early 2009 Emotion MJD ( Idea is to take the steering housing from the newer Lineas - and the Cruise Control lever can sit natively)
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/diy-do...iat-linea.html (DIY: Cruise Control for the Fiat Linea)

All in all - (Lots of ifs here) - one potentially could have a new driving experience for around or at a lakh of rupees on a stable platform.

Way cheaper than buying a new car !!
