Thumbs up

Automech are one of the most experienced and trusted names when it comes to exhaust. I have had first hand experience and they are one of the best exhausts available here in Mumbai. I have had it fitted on both my cars and have 5 other friends who have fitted on their cars and are more than happy with it. It is noise as well as performance.
Cat gets removed since it is a restriction. In reality even a muffler if not designed properly is a restriction to the exhaust gases but serves the purpose of dampening the noise but automech are well versed how to balance the two and give optimum performance. go ahead with automech. They are trustworthy.

Guessed as much ... 8K sounds so much better .. !! And is that the cost right from the manifold onwards or just the rear muffler ? Also is it wise to remove the cat con coz that will definitely go if I modify it from the manifold onwards ... SUGGEST PLS !!

Thnx killjoy ..nice of u to offer help. Anyways I spoke to the automech guy in mumbai and he spoke to the dealer here in delhi and he arranged for it 2 b given to me at 11.5 !! I guess thats fine as automech is guaranteeing the product .. i was worried that the delhi delaer mite just give me one of his products as earlier he was quoting 18K for the same..... MIND BLOWING MARGIN ---- !!!

Has anyone gotten a automech exhaust done on their palio 1.6 ? If yes, wat sound did you get .. I ordered for the medium grunt .. hope its what i want.

Getting it installed on monday ... !!
