Hey what makes you think I am changing the paint just yet ? It looks great & I am sticking to it for now !!

I am inclined to get the engine sorted out more than anything else.


Cheers

Hi

I think your car ought to get sorted out first, simply because the damaged parts of my engine have not been recieved yet.

Arush was to give me a final call on this yesterday, should be hearing the final "verdict" today. In which case the engine has to be sourced all over again. (on which I have been doing some little "research")

Hope for the best !!



Cheers

UPDATE :

Unfortunately my car shall have to live with the current engine for the time being.
The broken part replacement is not happening so the advance paid will come back & then shall begin the hunt for a new engine all over again.

Cool

Dude, Ricky, this thing, it's absolutely fabsolutely drool maal! To quote a dialogue from 'Gone In 60 Seconds', "Baby don't be so mean!"

Personally, I am drooooooling over the 'all-black'. Looks a mean missile, i tell you. (BBS, a salute to your PS skills)

Best of luck with the MIVEC. And Godspeed for the EVO.

Thanks - glad you like the car.


@Ford Rocam

Well so far I am still sticking with the MIVEC 1.6, BUT may consider the 6a12 as well. Depends which one I get in a "working" condition.


@BBS

So I am not the only one praising your skills !! You are in the IT field or advertising - right ?



Cheers

So whats the latest update on the project Ricky.

have you found another Mivec.Last i had a chat with Krupesh Patel of Electra performance about a 2 months back and he was going abroad to inspect and get some Mivec half cuts down to india.i have no idea whether he has got them in or not.
so you can ask them if they have a kit.

@blur, jitu & ricky: thanks guys, the photoshop chops are just a hobby for now. But, i would be more than happy to take a career in that field if i find one.
