My cousin once went to this guy and he kept on pushing him to buy these cheap chinese air filters.........and said that K&N sucks in lesser air than those ??!!!
Seems like he just keeps these good brands for show and to attract customers..... but really wants to sell cheaper stuff with lower quality but these must be higher on margins for him.

Those chinese conical filters cost around 750 bucks!
The filters are so bad in quality that forget air, they might suck me in too!

The fault lies as much with them as with consumers who are willing to buy a shoddy product just because the price is a little lower

Man this guy really hates Arush like anything because i went to him once and i compared his work with arush's and this guy went crazy, He started saying all rubbish about him that he dont know how to work, he's just a kido in modifications and he makes fool of people around the town and so much that i got so much pissed of that I went of from there and never ever visited his workshop again because he was not trying to show himself superior by his work but by showing some other competitor inferior which screwed me..

I know I'm digging up an old thread here but I recently came across some new pics from a source which can show you the kind of stuff that is being done in Delhi under the name of "Tuning" a car. Will let the pictures do the talking:

The actual components being used and being passed off as new to customers. No idea how the customers are also so bright that they can't understand the diffference.


Note Insulation Tape, Zip Ties & condition of the pipe being used in the plumbing.


Note the bends in the plumbing and the condition of the piping being used.
Also not the length of the header runners.



Yup, that's an LPG-Turbo Baleno.




Reportedly after a few days of this setup the Baleno promptly blew it's engine. And the job was done by Mr. Nivit Bhasin. The purpose of these pictures is to show people what is actually being done & with the resultant discussion make them aware of the con-jobs currently being done by so many "Tuners" out there.

The intake plumbing, headers and the piping to the intercooler. Man, if I were this guy I would have shot that tuner in the *****. Isn't the owner of the LPG-Turboed baleno a tbhp member too?
