hey im no genius..but from what i know..the universal conical filter on any diesel vehicle is an absolute NO NO...diesel engine's have a very high air intake level..which in turn makes the universal conical filter produce a very high induction note..and after sometime the filter tends to give up..so a pipercross box replacement filter is recomended...as the air permissable value of a pipercross filter is higer than K&N...also as far as your exhaust system goes..exhaust manufacturer's like magnaflow have developed cat-back exhaust system for many foreign heavy duty diesel cars..im not too sure if one is developed for the swift diesel..and the tyre size..well we are running 205/50/r15 on a petrol swift..and the tyres dont touch the inner wall at any point...but since this is a diesel..and you dont want to compromise on the profile due to the extra weight..205/55/r15 sounds very nice and grippy...but then again 195/60/r15 is very ideal..so the last call is obviously yours...well i do know that 205/50/r15,205/55/r15 are available in the bridgestone g3 potenza brand...they are by far the best tyres ive seen in the price range...and i do have those tail lights..the cost is approximately as much as jignesh mentioned earlier...hope this helped you a little bit...cheers..happy revvin...!

check out the following page, which is a link to tuning box for diesel swift, it can be considered over a PSI tuning box, as it gives 7 more ps!!!!!

Ohh thats sad i was looking forward to putting a Conical filter.

Also its giving the same out of 90bhp, 92ps, but more torque. The most important thing about Petes box is that support is available here.

yes that is true. but if i get a swift ddis, i would go for it. and did you notice one more thing? the swift ddis in uk, produces only 70ps, which means the spider tuning box gives a 22ps gain, unlike the PSI tuning box, which gives a 15bhp increase.

i know the gain is not a lot but i would not miss the opportuninty to squeese out a couple of more horses from my car.

Well the pete's tuning box can be tweaked to go even more than 22bhp, but it will have to be in combination with a high flow air filter. It is a common practice with us to tweak the tuning boxes (totally approved by petes) to deliver 7-10bhp more especially in skodas and hyundais where more grunt is required, the only drawback being more diesel smoke, which is corrected by more air intake. So close your eyes and go for it, you wont get more performance per rupee than that combo!

That made no sense. An induction note hardly means that the filter will give up. Also, if the Pipercross is more permeable to air, it will also produce a higher induction note, logically. And thirdly, a lack of fullstops makes all this very hard to read.

That's the wrong upsize. I'm surprised you are recommending such sizes to people. The stock size on a Swift is 165/80 R14 or 185/70 R14. The recommended R15 upsize is 195/60 or 205/55.

Thanks C3PO for clearing that up. I was wondering the same about the filter part.

Also i am keep on going for 195/60/15 only with Black Finish Alloys.

hey buddy viper im just trying to help out here ye...also when i mentioned the tyre size "205/50/r15" i didn't recommend it..i just said that we were using it on a swift for different reason's..also about the conical filter on the diesel car's..we've tried it and it gave us a devastating result..im guessing you've got a good result..so you can go ahead and advise it...and if you find the post too hard to read..you can just ignore it...cheers...!
