You may go for bigger alloys with low profile wider tyres if not already. The Body kit will also add value to the looks. Your car will get a sporty look. You may also look at sunroof.

Hi,

Since you are not concerned about warranty and want to remain NA here's what I would suggest:

1> Free Flow Exhaust
2> Throttle Body Enlargement
3> Porting/Polishing
4> Head Shaving( Only if you are going to use 97 Octane)
5> High Lift Camshafts with adjustable vernier pulley
6> Stand Alone Engine Management System or Piggy Back

If you want something more wicked then engine swap with either a 1.6 twin cam or SOHC(Baleno) engine.

Have not suggested Turbo since you do not want it.

Gemballa,

Hope you have upgraded the plug wires, if not then have them upgrade to MSD or Spitfire to squeeze the best out of the plugs. In addition to this, get a FreeFlow Exhaust. If you need anything from Chennai PM me. I can give you better deals.

Hi Viper,
I was also planning to do porting and shaving for my 1.6 palio. Why were you specific on 97 octane back there? Could you explain?

Well 97 octane is required after you shave a head because the compression ratio increases and with 91 octane fuel you will experience knocking in the engine.

Viper ... i have got free flow exhaust in my 1.8 Optra with a K&N performance filter (replacing the stock intake air box) .. somehow i feel car have more vibrations now .. is it possible that more air going in might be messing it up ? i am planning to go back to stock exhaust and putting back the stock air intake box and just replace the filter with K&N .. any suggestions.

Hey, the car doesn't knock really, but the difference between 91 and 97 becomes much more noticable. I guess a lot depends on how much the head has been shaved/ compression ratio increased.

Hi,

The OWS twin tips cost Rs750/- each. There are different plugs for different car manufacturers. Some plugs can be used with other makes, nothing to do with engine size.
