Hi Rehaan,
After readng ur response it seems that its a highly skilled job and needs to be handled very carefully.....if you
think this can be done, pls refer the person and his address.....any idea how much that would cost?

Hey Tarun,

It is a skilled job just like most tuning jobs are!
The thing is that there is no true judgement of how good some of these guys are at making free flows as there are no dynos around so no real way to test the actual HP gains other than just how it "feels". However, there are some guys who are definitely good at doing this job.

As i said earlier i have no clue about anyone from delhi, and as for the costs maybe Domnic will be able to give you a more accurate idea (as well as maybe suggest some1 in delhi.) I will PM him and ask him to have a look at this thread.

Hey Tarun,
Rehaan just Pm'd me. The usual price for an MS (Mild Steel) header and complete exhaust system with one muffler ranges from 4500 Rs to 5500Rs. If you want a complete SS header and exhaust system prices do go up depending on quality of the steel. about 10k-15k should be about the price for an SS header. which includes the pipe till the end and a ss box. I would suggest you go for a MS one in the beginning as you get the hang of the header and know the response etc. And you can experiment with sizing etc to pull the power band lower or higher. For more torque at lower revs etc. If you can get a capable tinker who has a good idea and nac to get things done, it will be gr8.
Now due to popular questions on Headers, Freeflows. Ill post a complete article and how to make your own header. Wait till tomorrow morning. I have some graphs to share with everyone which makes all the math easy!.

Cheers
Dom

the gain is definitely there.and if driven properly ,then there is also an improvement in fuel consumption figures.
but the problem is that once u get addicted to the sound ,there is no way u r going to car for economy.the exhaust above 3000rpm is music .seems like ur can car is in anger.
so one also tends to drive with windows rolled down only hear the sound.
the free flow with a filter is more than enough.
call AJAY on 9820092928 for the free flow and he can explain it better

total gain from these pipes (this i read somwhere) is just 2% max.. hmm.. i driven couple of cars with headers and what i felt was it changes ur power band, thats what makes the diffrence and yup helps easier breathing so a slightly better response from the accelerator..

had installed a last piece, the silencer part on the esteem (couldnt afford the whole header system at that time) it used to give a better response maybe just a lil.. but the acoustics were amazing.. design was a copy cat from combi rally guys

ikon am against removing the cat con, reason 1 obvious, pollution.. 2nd wont this affect the o2 censors and feed the cpu with wrong input??

I think they claim a power increase of around 8-12%. But depends on the cars see if you have a carb esteem of 65 bhp hows its just a increase of 7 bhp! so not phenomenol but a noticeable increase. it makes for a good driving experience and ofcourse the sound is a ego booster!
