Default Help Swift Mods

Hi Guys,
I am planning for all these mods on my swift vxi abs and I definitely want help from all you guys as I am new to Bangalore and new to all these stuff, pls help me with the approximate cost of all these mods as well and the best place to get all these mods done in Bangalore,

1) Upsize the tyre to 195-60-R15, should I go for tubeless or with tube tyres once? Which is the best tyre?
Pirelli P6000 Powergy,
Michelin Energy XM1,
Yokohama AVS ES100

2) Alloys to match with the above tyres as well as 205-55-R15 size of tyres (may upgrade to these in future)
Which is the best set of budget alloys available in Bangalore? What size should I look for? What should be the offset?

3) Side skirts, bumper extensions and spoiler.
Asked the Maruti authorized dealers they are charging Rs.50,000 for the same but I came to know that it can be done for Rs.10,000 to Rs.15,000 is that true?

4) K&N filter.
Which kind of K&N filter should I go for? Should I go for stock replacement ones or conical types? What is the model number of the filter?

5) Headers.
I want it to be done from a person who knows what he is doing, not the kind of persons who tells that “the headers he designs will increase the power to around 100bhp” I am telling this because I have heard a mechanic tell this to me.

6) Free flow exhaust.
Where can I get these done? Are these readily available by some manufacturer?

Waiting for suggestions,

Vijay.

PM Viper (viper performance) , he makes custom ceramic coated headers and custom exausts.!

I would recommend you choose between the Michelin & the Yokohama depending on what you like.

Considering your plans for a 205 upgrade in the future I would suggest you get a 6.5J width alloy.

Not sure whether skirts are a good idea given the roads in bangalore. See if you can get the swift sport bumper (or get it made) somehow though

All tubeless of course. Go for any of the above 2 - they're equally good.

Dont go for budget alloys - you're licensing the guy to peddle inferior quality items. The recognized foreign brands are HR, Plati, BSA, League. Indian brands: Aura, Neo, Traxx. There's another thread here abt various alloy manufacturers for further details. 5.5J and 100 PCD for Swift.

3) Side skirts, bumper extensions and spoiler.
While SGA is expensive, their quality also is way above the after-market replica kits. If you can afford it, go in for the SGA kit itself.

4) K&N filter.
Conical - if you can stand the initially-sweet sound many months down the line.

5) Headers. and 6) Free flow exhaust
Get them from the same vendor. Amongst brands there are Remus and Automech. There's info abt these here too. The other option is custom-made. In Bangalore there's Psycho or Viper from Mumbai
