You guys are kidding right?? That is supposed to be the way you over take on a single carriage way. You are supposed to pull out on the other side and overtake. Otherwise you will be stuck behind a truck or something forever. Please do drive a bit more on older Indian Roads guys. There is nothing risky about it if it is pulled off with enough distance spared.

Well Cyrus I somewhat agree with your comment.
But some one who drives around with Family like me and tries such risky overtakes, should definately be foolish.
BTW the video is edit just to get hold of exhaust node, after the overtake scene, believe me my Father bursted on me. The tempo coming was too near.

How would a 16v Baleno or 16v Esteem head over Esteem Carbbed Block help?
No reply yet, come on guys, if the head swap realy makes a difference I wouldnot mind trying, as these heads would cost dirt cheap in Saudi or even at chor bazar or CST.
As it is the head has to be open as we have finaly found that the oil seals of the valves are busted, so why not try something which gives a better drivability.

In that case why dont you try swapping to a SWIFT GTI block alltogether and make it a much more peppier car.

All i did was remove the company wheel caps and put a chrome trim
The rims were given black from the company

Costed rs 800 for the chrome trim.

Bro for the GTI setup i would need the Gti Block and the Twin Cam Head, which woould be expensive, more over finding just the block and head would be difficult. Sourcing the complete Gti Engine would be easy, but again if running it on carbs , and the engine including ECM and Wiring will raise the money factor.

Nothing much mate.

4x2x1 FFE
Custom made Air filter (Shall we call it the "Saaki Intake")
Momo kin of sports steering
Low profile wide tyres (Wide compared to stock tyres on stock rims)

All others are more apparel than performance mods.

May be a ECM upgrade to get rid of the stupid clutch issue due to the lack of power at initial.

The black esteem looks very cool. The smoking of the lamps is pretty good. Guessing that it has got mods under the hood too.

The one on the boot is certainly custom made. The car looks hot.
