Ok, I have read through all the posts and have come to know that the hike in power achieved is sufficient enough to be felt and experienced.
@Jkdas, you say the full kit for Santro costs 9.5K????

Yes could somebody provide information with installation for a Santro and tuners/installers in bangalore ??

Im only interested in a Filter & installing a free flow at the muffler. Dont plan to mod the entire engine, just the last piece for the silencer.

Any ideas ??

Thanks

Shibup's M800 MPFI kit cost him 5k. I drove teh car today, wow nice vroooomm vrooommm. I should get one for my car. I guess his car's exhaust note is tuned for medium sound.

Thumbs up Vroooom Vrrooooomm

Hi

Yesterday i went 2 Automech & installed a Full Free Flow Exhaust System.

It took few hours to setup on my Santro, but after the setup when i tested the ride it was a real vrrooom vrromm kinda i m driving a sports car.

It was nice to c the eyes turning around on my car.

Automech Guy (Vivek) did a good job.

I m Satisfied with the work.

I also installed a K&N Stock Replacement Filter for my car.

Now i m planning to go in for changing my Spark Plugs. (Suggestion Awaited)


Thanx. Enjoy Revving

Lightbulb word of caution

I personally dont know of anyone that does exhausts better in mumbai other than automech. although speaking strictly from experience i would recomend spending a little more on strapping on a stainless steel exhaust as opposed to the normal sheetmetal that they use.
I had my exhaust swapped out on my '96 esteem soemtime back in 03 i guess when automech was just about starting out. the result back then was simply phenomonal. although as time went by and considering i live a couple of blocks off the sea my pipes started to rust till eventually i had a big gaping hole in my muffler and my connecting pipe has fallen off and was draggin along . unfortunately i was way away from home on the highway close to gujrat and had to fix it with rope till i got back.
Now i just had it replaced before the speed run and shes doing fine again although vivek says itll last no more than a year and a half from now.
i would definately reccomend picking up a magnaflow muffler if u can get your hands on one and have automech do the rest of the piping in ss.
hope that helps ...
cheers

there is an accessory shop in Chennai - Dreams Auto and the contact person is Mr. Jesudas.... He also stocks K&N's, OZ racing wheels, Wurth products for various auto applications, and pete's products.... neat fancy shop...

I picked up my K&N from him... But for the Headers and freeflows i went to Psycho (blore) and got it custom made.... too bad i had only 2 days for the entire job... if i had a day or 2 more i cud have got the headers chrome plated ...

The dreams guy is a very very good salesman.... literally... he quoted 10.5k + 2.5k for installation.... prices are 3 months back and may have marginally risen or fallen....

honest advice.... PM psycho.... tell him what u want.... u may hav to give him an advance so he can keep the pipes and rest of the stuff ready.... only fitting will be required which will take a day.... so plan the entire operation and go to blore..... come on... it is only 4hrs away and best part.... u will enjoy the drive on the way back.. trust me.... and custom jobs are way better... tell him what u want and he will deliver... and yeah he is very reasonable on the price....
