hi turboindia

could you shed some light on daily driveability?
being a one off special, i'm sure a lot of RnD has been done to know what works n what doesnt
would you say after doing your car, tthe team can do another one, which could be used on a daily basis? does it give you any problems?

as u can see i'm basically concerned about reliability issues, me staying in bombay cannot rum down south for every small thing if i choose to do something like this here, i also dont think there's anyone here in mumbai who can do a clean turbo install

very nice work TI.
Q1: I could only see 2 amps on the rear car seat. where is the 3rd?
Just lookproperly it is there.
Q2: How did you build those sub boxes. they look small for a 12".
Yes Boston uses very small enclosures. They are just 0.5cft and i made them with marine grade plywood and ffilled with glasswool
Q3: did you upgrade the alternator to supply power to all those amps? NO
Q4: I notice that the you built some pods in the door for the 6.53's woofer. How was this done?I just made a hole and fixed it on the side pad. No pods
Q5: how is the image in the front? the 6.53's woofer is partially blocked by the front seat.
Image is great

tks TI i might use some of these ideas for my car. I am using 1 alpine MVRF 340 for my front and rear and 1 Altec 4 x 35rms bridged to run 2 bass tubes. BTW did you buy the Boston's locally (in India) and if so what do they cost? MY HU is a alpine 9833.

The drivaebility of this car is fantastic.

does not feel any different from stock in slow speeds.

Maintainence there hardly is any but if you do have a prob you need to go to someone who knows what he is doing
