Welcome to TBHP!!
Dude.. i guess everyone is gonna tell u that same thing..
with that kind of a budget.. just the basic mods..
1) External K&N Air Filter
2) Free Flow Exhaust
3) Spark Plugs / Wires

Guess this should fit into your budget. Contact K.S. Motorsports to get this job done for you.

Cheers !!

P.S: There are many threads posted on only basic performance mods. Check it out!!

sell your 1.2, put in the 20k you have (some cases even lesser) and exchange you car for a palio 1.6, you cannot possibly get more bang for the buck.
all your freeflow, plugs, wires, filter bla bla bla that you can get in 20 k will not even get you close to the 1.6 feel.

why not, it will give you much more bang for the buck, and it is surely a much more reliable option. if you're lucky you could even manage a gtx model, so nice wheels, and the other goodies as well.

Viper's tri-phase worked well on an optra, getz and lancer. ohh yea add a corolla to that as well. pm viper and see if you can manage a try and buy for yourself.
good thing is that you can always take it off a car and install it on another, unlike most other engine mods.
too bad it didnt show any significant gains on my ohc

Hey Manson,

To set the record straight it did not work on your car only. You did not have enough time to identify why and hence it was removed. It is working very well in other cars and have so far installed the same in over 20 cars with each customer having no complaints.

Giving below a list of cars it is currently running on with no complaints in India.

Hyundai Getz
Hyundai Santro
Hyundai Acent
Optra 1.6
Lancer
Maruti Zen
Maruti Baleno
Maruti Esteem
Old Honda City 1.3
Old Honda City 1.5
New Honda City
Toyota Corolla
Ford Ikon 1.3l
Ford Ikon 1.6
Opel Corsa Swing 1.6

All the above car owners are very happy with the product. May have missed few cars.

do you plan to stick to 13" or do you want to upgrade to 14" .either way you can look at bridgestone potenza's g3 or michelin's or even bridgestone turanza er60.i guess palio 1.2 has tube type tyres so its recommended that you shift to tubeless.in 20000 bucks you cant have tyres+alloys+performance mods.since u want performance mods,get ur tyres changed and get a k&n and a free flow.
