This is a GT wing. Looks too bad IMO but if you like it, go for it. I would prefer a car without a wing/spoiler unless it came fitted from the factory



More pictures

I love these rims and everything else about this car.

Absolutely buddy. Elf calls it a 'Q' car . But I wouldn't mind getting those OZ rims in Black. Hopefully they will look good on my Red car.

This makes it a pretty tedious task for the guys and they end up messing up a lot of things in return.
Seen it done, and seen it done well. 1.6 to make you Fiat boys wet your pants. Jappys will wet their too, out of fear.

The ride is called the Torqueinstein . Is it sold already?

I know it can be done well but its not everybody's piece of cake. Thats all I meant . It would be great help if you could list out the mods for us.

Default beware!!!

hello , engines are the systems... right from the intake snout.. to filter body,, to intake dimensions, cam phasing cam events cam durations valve overlaps , valve lifts, compression ratio, actual compression ratio, <brake mean effective pressure> ignition timing , knock sensors, injection timing, all the possible sensors..and ecu<some of which are smarter than the so called tinkerers!>then comes the car weight, the gear ratio the suspension setup and tyres!!!
and please dont forget that engines dont drink, they breathe!!!
just keep it in the front of ur mind that
1> engine should work most efficiently as a pump,
and
2>engine should work most efficiently as a heat exchanger!!
one change here most probably ruins something at the other end..
unless one does understand the engine one intends to upgrade in totallity <and why part of engineering too>... be sure he is heading to trouble...
very few people have the courage to stand up and accept that though he is considerded as an auto expert actually he $#^@ up the engines.. extracts louder noises from the silencer and convinces the poor owner that thats the 25 bhp gain he is paying 4..
there are more dupers in this line than the population of india..
check the tech. knoledge of the person.. ask the questions.. the right ones.. <i.e. if by fooling the air temp /pressure sensor<in a speed density type management ecu> how can he claims that the c.e.u.is as dumb as the tuner... isnt there a lambda sensor which will correct the mixdure strenght in the next cycle..+possibly a warning light flashing on ur face>>
how can it will increase the volumetric efficiency...<and if yes then whats the range of the sensor above and bellow the stock value..or will it lean out dangerously!!>
there are thousend and one ways of differenting between honest ,knoledgable and trustworthy experts and 15 minutes experts,, who read some superficial articles and claim to be an axpert.
there are one more species who is making the same fundamental mistakes ,every year for thirty years--- and calling an experience!!!
man its a bad world...
free advice is generelly ignored...
dont ignore it..
not ignoring it is good for ur wallet, ur darling and most importantly u dont feel ashamed when ull cal ursely an auto buff in front of a mirror!!!

could anyone suggest a spoiler for the palio adventure. I'm not sure what kind would look good on the vehicle...or even if it would look good at all. Has anyone tried??

Gemithomas, I feel it wouldn't look good on the Adventure. I wouldn't want a spoiler on a station wagon.

Default Will adding straight pipe increases power ?

I read your posts telling mods on 1.6 are not recommended owing to reliability issues. So i was thinking that just removing the cat will add more power, in addition to that we may go for a muffler also. So no need to touch headers nor any extensive mods.
