Hi,
I previously had a stock replacement K&N but got greedy for more sound and power.The moment i had the conical fitted i could find a certain eagerness in the car ,the drivability of the car improved in the higher gears.It was like i constantly felt the need to upshift asap while driving.
However the bottom end torque suffered and pickup in lower gears has somewhat been affected especially in slow moving traffic.And yes love the intake roar.Can't really comment on the mileage as i have just recently started filling the car by tankfulls and had just got the carb overhauled.As of now i get 13-14 in the city w/o a/c which i presume is more or less as per a regular stock 800.

Here's link to some more modded 800's.

13 - 14 kmpl, what are you guys talking about.

A well tuned M-800 must and should deliver 18-19 Kmpl under standard driving conditions.

My 1997 M-800, with all those 'n' number and many numerous modification's delivers 17 kmpl without A/C and 15 kmpl with A/C.

And this very car has clocked 2.30 lac kms as on date, with one engine overhaul at 1.37 lac kms.

Well i have had the misfortune of having my car tuned by a lousy garage for several years.In those days i used to get 9-10 kmpl.Imagine that.I found myslef a better garage whose mechanic was able to push that figure to 12-13.I had the carb o/h just this mid jan and till that it was around 13-14.

I have done my 1st tank full after that and am expecting a increase in FE.Besides most of my driving is for 5-10 Kms with a occassional trip to my office which is around 60 kms to and fro.So am keeping my fingers crossed till the next tank full.I think you are lucky to have a good tuner for your car to get such a good mileage though i really think that getting 18-19 kmpl in mumbai traffic conditions is pretty difficult.

I don't think people around would know about something like FFE. I'm sure he can put it the straight way as i had recommended one of my colleauge to him who drives a santro and he was able to place it in a straight way ( All the Santros that ive seen with FFE have been fitted the way it's been fitted on your car which makes me think that he can do the same for 800 too )

Silencer house in cp? kaka?

Anyways i dont think even he can fit it straight because it will touch your rear suspension or come out more than half out of bumper, To get a straight fit you need to buy a smaller end can.

Yes Kaka, now i remember the name of the guy from where i got it done. Last time when i went there for some welding job i asked him if i can the FFE cut a little bit to push it inside a bit ( for my alto ) but he suggested me to go for a smaller pipe which connects to the End can which would push the end can inside the bumper by about 2 inches ( he quoted Rs 700 for this alteration ).

I might get it done soon.
