Hey Rush,

Just returned from Goa and saw this thread. Congrats on the restoration. Am sure the car must be moving very well.

Neat! The mag is just the right choice and goes very well with the paint and curves of the city. But what attract me most are those headers, it 'looks' amazing, i'd love to get something like that for my palio... good job GTO

GTO,
Which make are those alloys? If you are planning to sell the old ones kindly tell me. I am in looking for OE Enkei alloys.

GTO Congrats on the restoration. Car looks cool, a clear example of understatement. Had chance once to drive a vtec and i could clearly feel the lack of low end. Your car should be rocket now with the mods.

Nice choice of alloys and tyres.. Well.. I have the same combo on my car
Well, you sure do. And I thought mine were a first. I was lucky since they match the body colour of my Vtec very well.

Sorry kutlee. Sold them to the tyre dealer at the time of installation itself.

Yes, the low to mid have surged forward and contribute to a great improvement in daily driveability.

The car looks neat. The headers are a class of its own. I like the alloys and car paint, simple and elegant.

Hey GTO,
First of all i hope you are enjoying your car to the hilt till date
Secondly, i have a question.
i dont want to cause any inconvenience but do you remember the break up of all the costs?

You see, im a sucker for service and hate the services in India where 2 days means 10.
Just came across your thread and saw that the modification providers were all prompt.
So was wondering if you remember the prices. If they are good value, then ill know where to go whenever i want to get anything done, as im also not going to go in for any higher mods than the ones you have done.

Thanks AR. Though it is working fine now (10K+ km up), I will surely have it checked over the next major service.

Yup, they were pretty time efficient and I haven't had to go back with any installation issues. Period.

I don't recollect the exact breakup, but a safe guesstimate would be:

1. 22K for the paint job (including some other work too)
2. 17K for the Greddy headers
3. 8 - 9K for the exhaust from AutoMech
4. 7K for the headunit. And 1K for the excellent install by Bharat Audio.
5. Alloys + Tyres came up to 40K (set of 5).
6. 5 - 6K for the K&N with install.

Psycho had imported two sets. The other set of headers went in Ajmats car.
