Looks hot!!!! What you need is a subtle skirting at the sides and a equally small chin spoiler.

The Stile in Black looks awesome....very well taken picture.
However, I did notice that the airdam has come off on the right hand side.

Hav got a Palio S10. Got a K&N Extreme already. Was seriously thinking to go for the below mentioned mods and need your inputs/suggestions on the same:

1. Iridium Spark Plugs (Not for performance, but just coz they are better spark plugs ithan the stock ones if I aint wrong)
2. Competition Flywheel (suggested by Tuner)
3. Competition Main Pulley (suggested by Tuner)
4. Custom made exhausts & FFE

All the above are costing me around Rs. 25-30k.

Kindly suggest if the mods are ok and the price is reasonable. Suggest any other decent mods which can be done to a Palio 1.6

Love my car's performance in stock as its got decent power. But was looking to give the power a little boost.

Also, does installation of these bolt-on kit need to be done by an expert or shall a very good Palio mech do? Coz items 2, 3 and 4 shall be sent across to me as bolt-ons and need to get them installed by my Palio mech in Hyd.
forget the points 1,2 and 3.. 4 is not optional it is required...
also consider this :
How about getting more (a)aggressive cams ,(b)adjustable cam gears and a (c)ECU remap/standalone ?
u are not handicapped with a SOHC - U got a DOHC head, its got very serious potential if u get those 3 things done..
Im sure a little bit of tweaking to cam and ignition timing will go a long way with ur DOHC head..

Since its a DOHC,i will need to get an intake and exhaust cam ,right?So thats two cams or should i go for an aggressive intake cam and let the exhaust be stock.

u can get any standalone as long as it can be wired in reliably ..
go for something which the tuners in India are familiar with..

Check out the other manufacturer's websites if they support your car model..

nope .. doesn't work that way.. u will need both of them to be aggressive
U need to get the pair together intake+exhaust

Just getting the cams is not sufficent.. u will need to adjust them according to ur intake,headers etc etc so u will need "adjustable" cam gears .. u need to control the LSA (overlap between the 2 cams)
to do that u will need adjustable cam gears..

Im talking about aftermarket cams..
I've no idea abt the Fiat cams ...Im from the "Honda world" but u can talk to tuners who get their cams imported for other engines like suzuki, honda etc..they may point u in the right direction...
