You guys should also consider Pipercross! I am gettin the cold air intake kit for my swift! its got a unique "bendable" tube thats gonna be attached to a workin hood scoop! i think it would definitely give better performance than the regular replacement or conical k&n's.

Cheers

Can you post pic's of the same? How much it costs?

Also please clarify me whether installation of Conical filters result in increase of engine sound?

Won't hood scoops allow water inside in rainy conditions?? Some people put the filter all the way down near the bumper and have same probs. If the car ain't ur daily ride then nothing to worry about.

We took that into consideration, the angle at which the scoop is made wont allow water to travel in! The pics are gonna be posted soon! the car is still in the makin!

I got back to my car after driving my friends stock swift for a week's time. I was very much happy with the performance difference that was showed by my car. Great Stuff.

Installation of conical filters does make a huge difference in peformance. Seems to deliver marginal better FE figures.

The engine does get a bit noiser at idle, but thats ok when u get the awesome sound when u redline it.

PS - No one has still mentioned the BEST position for the filter in the Swift.

Every morning I need to take the car reverse & push the steering to full right or left based on the direction I need to take the car out of the compound.

Once I turn the steering to the straight position, the RPM shoots upto 2200 with loud noise. It settles down between 900-1100 after 20-30 seconds. Is it normal?

PS:

I have installed ractive conical filter & I face this only after the installation of the same.

This shoot in RPM happens at only cold starts when the steering is cut to the exterme

This phenomenon is very normal and I face it in my MPFI esteem too which is completely stock. I do not have complete information on this one but the increase in RPM is due to the power steering. Maybe, the experts can throw more light on this one. But you can rest assured that it is definitely not due to the new filter installed.

This can happen due to the filter also. I have noticed it after installation og KnN in another vehicle(not a Swift) the RPM shoots to 2000RPM on start and settles to 900RPM

I think I got it. Its 33-2826. But the part number belongs to WagonR. Can someone confirm whether Alto and WagonR has the same filter size?

I heard u should not use metal (iron) pipes for the filter cuz it'll rust. Is it true?? Just in case u use it, cant u just paint it?
