Default My Corsa, what say?

Finally managed to click some snaps of my ride. The pics are not so clear tho, clicked with my mobile cam. Need some suggestions from you guys. I wanna get some body graphics in red maybe. Should I do it? Please suggest.

Unhappy

Aren't you the same person who had come near Mahesh Turning Works near Shivaji Park a few days before the Mumbai Speed Run to fix a fibre hood on your ride and to remove the front headlamp for ventilation???

Hi Payam, here's a list of all the mods.

Under the hood: K&N cold air intake kit, 4x2x1 free flow exhausts, FSE fuel pressure regulator, Iridium plugs and 2mm throttle body expansion.

Exterior: 195/50 R15 Yokohama AVS wheels with 5 spoke KH racing alloys. N1 GT wing aluminium spoilers. Red underbody neons.

Interiors: MOMO replica three spoke red and black steering wheel. Auto gauge Tacho with shift light, Auto gauge vaccuum, air fuel ratio and fuel pressure gauges. Sports pedals and custom handbrakes with backlight. Red seats and door panels.

Work underway: 285* Top fast road cam from Piper. Head polishing and porting. (also looking for a Greddy emanage. If anyone has any info, please help.) and a borla exhaust system.

I clocked 17.8 sec with a reaction time of 0.8 sec at the speedrun 2007 in mumbai (I know that's not great but I short shifted ).

Thanx dude. Btw, the spoiler's not that big. Looks big cause of the angle from which it's shot. It comes way within the frame of the car. Got it custom made so that it stays within the frame. About the bodykit, still looking for a good one. Complete fibre one. Will let you know as soon as I get one.

Have only put stickers of what I've got under the hood. Nothing more. Spoilers custom made and completely my choice. So I'll stick to it.

My humble advice....Get a body kit as soon as possible...

I stay close by so I frequent there quite often. No, you didn't see me because u were too busy with your ride...

It's surprising that you joined here so late since many BHPians frequent near Mahesh's workshop... Anyway, better late than never...

Hello adman77. Didn't you post here, http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...tml#post391427 (Opel sail 1.6 mods) that you have 4x2x2 free flow exhausts..?

a) did you install the under the hood mods at one go? I just wanted to know which mod gave you the most boost in low end torque.

b) When I got my 1.6 Sail they (National Garage) that 15" would not be advisable as it would interfere when the car was making hard turns. I assume you have not had any such problems and NG was probably mis informed or was erring on the safe side. BTW I'm told the Standard 1.4 Corsa/Sail come with 13" Steel rims and only the 1.6 version of these cars come with Alloys.
