Neville poonawala has a turbo city, its supposed to be one fast ride dude.

its a dark green city parked generally at the petrol pump at siddhivinayak. Looks completely stock (almost).

Neville poonawala's Turbo City is bloody Awesome! He has done the prefect job to it ...kept it simple on the outside with neat set of 15inch mags. No fancy mods on the outside but lil do u know whats hiding under the hood, his beast breaks the 8 second barrier to 100kmph. Perfect mod to do to a city. How much do u think a turbo charger cost for the city guys?

Oops sorry about the large picture/ I'll just resize and post somemore pics.

Garett turbo
Honda city 1.5 ( NOT VTEC)
0-100 in around 8.0secs( we just used a stop watch) dont know of any speedo error etc cause i use 205/50-R15 tyres on BBS Alloy wheels,
Fuel management using a VORTECH FMU and a MSD 6BTM Ignition
Flying through Cochin right now. Have had it completed for the last 4 months and am getting a milaege of around 10 in city.

OK so who did the works.
Fabrication was done by my dear friend RAJ HINGORANI in bangalore and fine tuning with all fuel management was done by LEELA KRISHNAN of MRF fame in Coimbatore and i studied from top to bottom this great site www.homemadeturbo.com for months before i got this up right.Got all the stuff from US one by one and here I am with the first TURBO CITY in Cochin

OOH and guys I am running 8psi now.

That is one SERIOUSLY MEAN machine. Wow!! The plumbing and electrical work look really clean (what do you expect from Raj Hingorani). The BBS alloys are to die for...and your black paintjob with the body kit is spot on. Except for the stereo, the Momo steering wheel and shift knob interiors tempt me.

Team-BHPs best Honda City yet? For sure....

Thanks much for sharing your photos with us. What you need is a good Gtech-Pro to start timing your accelerations and 1/4 mile runs.

Thanks guys this is my daily driver and i have never taken it for a quater mile. Think i am too old for that kind of stuff.

Anyway the stereo is something I left out.

Tha blaupunkt you see is the one with a mobile phone (ANTERES) and i have 3 Alpines pumping out to the high end Boston acoustics 6.53 at the front and rear and 2 Boston 12.5LF subs in closed enclosures at the rear. they really kick.

I'll put in a few photos soon ok
