I have no clue why you guys are asking to change plugs.. This is a Diesel Engine right??

A gasoline engine intakes a mixture of gas and air, compresses it and ignites the mixture with a spark. A diesel engine takes in just air, compresses it and then injects fuel into the compressed air. The heat of the compressed air lights the fuel spontaneously.

Note that the diesel engine has no spark plug, that it intakes air and compresses it, and that it then injects the fuel directly into the combustion chamber (direct injection). It is the heat of the compressed air that lights the fuel in a diesel engine

Default Soup it UP !

[quote=balenopower;435745]Well now tht u've bought it just get a decent free flow system - 10k
K&N conical filter- 4k
Iridium plugs-3400(set of 4)
quote]

Hi All,
I have an iDSI 2004 model with 64k on the ODO and have enjoyed the sedated drive till now. However, the pangs of turning 30 soon are getting the better half of me and I want to do something that will still make me feel a whole lot younger what better than:- " the man & his machine". So guys, need all your help in -
A) Is a 77 BHP NHC a good bet for Mods ?
B) What are the Mods that i should get into to really soup it up (budget >= 1 lac )
C) Where in Delhi NCR would you suggest I get it done ?
D) Need the torque as much as possible - no more sedated drives.
E) NEED A RELIABLE CAR.

Look forward to your views and help
Cheers

well the best suggestion would be to sell it and buy another car. lol say a fiesta 1.6S.

but if thats not an option then try to get a vtec head for it (really dont know much about this engine but the gurus can say whether its possible or not). then get the normal free flow, air filter, port polish (dont if you planning on forced induction) and maybe a wilder cam.

spent the rest on good rims and tyres.

Better to sell the car and buy an OHC vtec then. Or something which can be stable at speeds over 120kph. NHC will never have the dynamics of a proper performance car.
