And is it the same diameter as the regular steering wheel, Hellspawn? Or is it a little smaller? I am not sure if the stalks are sticking out a little more than they do in my stock steering wheel.

How does the horn work now, Hellspawn?

Also, is the distance of the steering wheel from your body now same or changed?
Thanks.the button in the centre with MOMO written on it is the horn.
The space has slightly increased.the whole steering/hub combo is thinner and a lighter than the stock steering wheel.

No,it is smaller in diameter than the stock steering wheel.the diameter of this wheel is 320mm.

The look like they are sticking out more since this steering wheel is smaller.

That is a really good looking set up you've got there, man.

Reaching the horn may be a bit of an issue. I drive with a swarm of auto rickshaws around most of the time, which makes the horn a car protection device.

But still, the steering wheel (particularly its large diameter) has been just about my only peeve with my Petra. And now you are tempting me with that pic. I have seen this steering wheel before, but never in a Petra. That view is so familiar, its that much more difficult to resist. Great addition.

By the way, do you think it is possible to set it up so that the steering wheel can be closer to the body?

Thank you.
Actually in my case,i like to drive with one hand on the spoke and it feels more comfortable to drive with an aftermarket steering wheel.In the stock wheel i had to hold it by the rim and reaching the horn was uncomfortable.
And ya,i find the stock wheel ugly IMO.

Go ahead,take the plunge.You can order the hub from MOMO.Its the same one that fits an alfa romeo 156.
And you cant adjust the steering wheel to be closer to your body.

Hi Hellspawn. I had never really considered the steering wheel ugly or otherwise, but I always felt it was too wide. And now your pic. :(

I shall check this out someplace. I am tempted to practice driving with minimal hooting.

And you enjoy...

Hellspawn,
Can you provide details like part numbers of the hub & steering wheel?
Where did you buy these from? Address, contact no?
I am really tempted to get this set up!
Thanks,

You can use any steering wheel as long as you have the right hub.
The part number of the hub from momo is 4035R.
I picked it up from the momo/isotta showroom in bangkok.

Lohit, I would advise you against that for a palio. I would suggests that you go for a CAI first.

Do read RedMM's thread on FFE for his 1.6 GTX.

Nothing wrong about the FFE for the palio, but it is the install that matters in the 1.6 and it's not as simple as in other cars.

just my 2 cents

And if I may ask why not,some logical reasoning is much appreciated. I know the engine compartment is cramped , but apart from that what makes you say that ?

A CAI/aftermarket filter alone wont make much of a difference IMO, mix it with the FFE and you could actually make out the real difference.

BTW Lohit why don't you PM fellow member Akbaree from bangy, he has gotten a FFE installed in his adventure(?).

arre riju sir...

If you read my post carefully, you would get the answer (my 2 cents) and in fact you yourself have also mentioned it.

Contradicting your own statements, 1st you advise against it and then the next sentence you say go for it .

My answer was purely based on problems faced during a FFE install on a palio owned by a colleague. I thought you had something new to share.

Both of us are essentially saying the same thing -- what's so complicated about the post buddy????
My advise for not going for the FFE is also based in the install issues (and NOT per se about the effectiveness of the FFE on the 1.6). I did also mention him to go though RedMM's experience of the FFE install process.

And yes, w.r.t to the contradicting my own words, if you read carefully, my advise is not to go and the second statement was a general/supporting statement about the install intricacies in the FFE and hence not suggesting. Where did i say go for it?

I hope it's clear to you now. . If not then lets discuss this when we meet.
