Hey Buddy ,

If you dont already have a free flow exhaust K&N conical filter install one. Then you can go ahead and port/polish the head and intake manifold. You can also install a mild street cam(Ihave one for sale if you want) .

Hey
What gearbox and clutch are you using. Zen's or Esteems'.

A hot cam is the best bang for the buck, after the usual stuff like free flow and CAI.

BUT
remember that the carb'd version makes 65bhp compared to the mpfi 85bhp
whereas your mpfi zen makes 55bhp, so is it really worth it for just 10bhp, which u can easily get with excellent headers, freeflow,filter, plugs & ingnition..
Hey,

I have a Nov'2004 mpfi Zen. Tech specs say power output is 60 bhp@5500 rpm. Has Maruti upgraded the engine with the new Zen? Are the older mpfi Zens really 55 bhp?

Cheers!

Close to about 95+ bhp on the wheels if the car is done up right .... since it is carby you would need a good set of carbs to go with it... However with the estem carb could get up to about 85+ bhp...

Combustion chamber is mirror finished, even the valve heads are polished, exhaust tract modified and has a total smooth and mirror finish. This kinda port job should give you about 25hp on a 1.6 palio. Takes about 2 days for the complete work and probably add another day for assembling and dis-assembling. FE will improove actually, have seen a 15% gain(normal driving). But on WOT will drop to about 20% lesser.

haha thanx iceman....blv it or not but my next q was abt the tyres....as of now im runnin std bridgestone tyres with normal rim-no alloys that come stock..... will modding the brakes be more efective than buying wider tyres with a lower profile ? because with existing tyres the grip is seriiouly poor (even tho the tyres are pretty new) and even slightly aggressive braking locks em up.....cornering also leaves a lot to be desired.... how much wud a set of good tyres cost ? and brake work cost?....thanx

Was wondering if its possible to fit a Accent CRDI Engine to a Zen?

i have currently bagged a steal deal on a total loss accident Accent CRDI, and plan to use that engine in a Zen.

hey super, both go hand in hand....amazing brakes but bad tires will leave you locking up all the time.

speedfreak, well i dont know him might have seen him around. being the fastest zen i cannot say anything. well you can change the carb or modify the current carb. but that alone will not help. if you tell em your budget i acn work something out to tweek your car a bit.

insane devil, a crdi in a zen!!!!! man i am stumped...
