go for 4X4 anytime, it will definitely help you out, if you plan to take it offroad. Also the endeavour is a machine which hardly requires any mods as such. May be u can think abt the K&N, and may be ICE....

why would you say "it hardly requires mods".
it is pretty low on power for its size.

Neo - The turbo mods are easier said than done since the Endeavour engine is an old generation & not really conducive to modifications. I suggest you confer with one of the modification Guru's before deciding on anything. Also I don't think Pete's has a tuning box for the Endeavour, you can PM him to get exact details.

About the 4x4 or 4x2 question well it all depends on your usage. If you don't plan to go off-roading & stick to tarmac runs then I would suggest going in for 4x2 to save on cost & also lower maintainance costs in the longer term.

Endeavour is an underpowered vehicle and there is scope for mods on it ...
If in case you dont do much offroading then i suggest you go for 4x2...

You're right Hellspawn the car was done for Sameer Dada & had only visual mods done to it. No Performance mods were done on it.

Hi,

You can install a larger turbo and intercooler with a BOV in between. Will be good for around 25-30 BHP more.

The only mod the Endeavor needs is a caterpillar track. That should make it a formidable competitor to the Arjun Main Battle Tank for the Indian Army.

Hi,

We can fabricate a new intake manifold bigger size with a new larger turbo , 19" intercooler and bov, larger throttle body. There is not much we can do with the electronics and would not suggest fiddling around as spares/performances parts are not easily available in India or abroad.
