Engine swaps will have to be done in Mumbai or Bangalore. No one in Delhi has the expertise, AFAIK. You're looking at around 2 lakhs for the job.

Actually, yes. TC'ing a VTEC is VERY complicated. Quite unlike the MIVEC's. There was a orange VTEC in Mumbai, and the owner was in splits (not the good kind) most of the time, trying to get the mapping right. The problem is with the VTEC actuation itself. Can't handle boost loads properly, apparently..very twitchy. Details are very lengthy..

As for the engine swaps; be it Honda or Mitsu; you're looking at 3L, for a proper job. The engine itself will cost about 1.5, plus O/H, labour, mods, fitting, etc...& then there's wiring and the niggling hassles.

One thing is for sure. Be it swapping or boosting; you have to be VERY determined, open-minded, and prepared for nurturing the car for long periods of time at a stretch....all for a weekend drive...

On second thoughts, the vRS is a great idea...

i dont think any tuner should laugh, provided if the interested person is very ambitious. I once happen to see a car in history channel or discovery(i think the program was known as super cars), there was one european car which has 1.5L engine tuned to participate in drag race(though it runs on top-fuel) I dont exactly remember the bhp figure, but definitly it was xxx bhp. OH!!!, btw the car was similar to fiat 1100.

Sorry, didn't know. All you fellows keep meeting to eat meat, and you can't start one puny thread for a Mivec?!

Hey, not bad. Except for that GT spoiler, mirrors, and the rear overhangs. The coupe conversion's quite okay..although I'd prefer frameless doors...and are those rims 17 inchers?

Now, what's under the hood...? Specs, puh-lease...like people said..a thread is the need of the hour..

BTW, couldn't help but notice; if it's running a MIVEC, why are the rear brakes still drum...?

Yes planet rocker, it is the same car.

I would have posted details about the car and the swap and the entire story, but then again, i cant... coz it would be termed as marketing! It would get deleted the minute id post it heheh

veyron, it has bigger front rotors and calipers swapped from the mivec mitsu, the rear are stock drums, even then the braking is more than sufficient. Those are 17" wheels.

Why JUN??? Yes they may know the works but can one afford them. Lets get real here.

There are risks to be taken once you look at going beyond 20% of the max capacity of the engine anyway.

It was a JOKE Keshav!

Nitroxxx prolly took JUN's example because they are one of the most wellknown international tuners around.

Considering the CEDIA or even the RS alongwith all the other options - what say ?? I am told that there may be interesting options available for the CEDIA, trying to find out the numbers right now. If anyone has done up a CEDIA or knows of one that has been done up - please post. Appreciate the help.

Cheers

Dude and you should be coz everyone here is claiming they can do it.Although if you really want to get one done trust Keshav. I mean that literally.
