Thumbs down Turbo Unit for a 2003 Tata Indica

Hi Everybody

I stay in Bangalore. I recently bought a used tata indica. I want to install a turbo unit in the car because there is a lot of power drain when you switch the A/C on.
I was wondering if anyone could help me here by directing me to the right place and also giving me an approximate cost for this conversion.

Thanks

Well the New indica comes with a Optional Turbo Intercooler, what you can do is purchase the entire thing from TATA on order and fit it with RAC in kormangla, they do a lot of modded cars and rally cars, so they will be able to fix it up for you.

Hi,

Now this is first for me. You want to fit a turbo because the AC saps a "lot of power". Buddy there are several things you can do to compensate the power loss which are far cheaper and simpler to do than fit a turbo. I am assuming you have a petrol car. A turbo conversion with the right electronics and recommended spares will cost you anything in the region of Rs1lac +++.

If you have a diesel car then ????????

it would be cheaper to go for an indica turbo rather than retro fit-

Time spent in fitting, rectifying etc + lower resale ain't worth it
