Default My modded Santro

Would like to share my santro with all of you.

It is a silver santro xing (aug '05),my 18th birthday gift and my most prized possession.
I love my car more than anything, as is the case with most of the guys on this forum.

So here goes a list of mods I have on this car.

First of all performance:
K&N conical filter with custom made cold air intake with a velocity stack in it.


Free flow exhaust setup with tuned headers(4x2x1) for low and mid end power designed by Viper Performance(Jignesh).

This the "best bang for the buck" performance upgrade you can do to your santro.
I did test drive a santro with automech freeflow setup (with headers) but didnt find a considerable difference and found the exhaust note to be very buzzzy. Then I asked the automech dealer that I want the exhaust setup
for low and mid end power and with a very mild yet sporty sound that too when I cross the 3k mark. So I ask him how long is it going to take to get it made and he tells that he has it in stock and I can get it installed right now. I wondered how did they have such a spec in stock or was it one spec fits all policy so I left the place.
Then I contacted Viper(he has very good reputation on the forum) and had him send the setup over to delhi.
I was amazed by the quality of the stuff I recieved especially the headers with the white ceramic coating.
The car has amazing low and mid end torque and is absolutely silent below 3000 rpm.

The car also has a Sunpro 5" tachometer with shiftlight


ICE:
Sony GTX 550 HU
Hertz ECX130 - Rear fill
JBL 4" - Frontstage ( upgrade still being planned, to be executed very soon )
2 pioneer 306dvc
Alpine amp running the subs ( being upgraded to audison soon )
No damping as of now.


Some taiwanese made 13" alloys with 165/65 R13 rubber

Exterior mods:

Smoked out tail lamps


A few stickers here and there


Last but not the least

4300K dual beam H4 HID xenon headlamps (damn these are bright)

Xinome there is a serious difference i think you should go for Headers...

Harsh's santro with these stage1 mods is easily around 1.5 to 2 secs faster (roughly) than stock cars and we have tested this a lot many times.
