Thats fine..!
But the thread title says performance upgrade.
You are right If u get softer suspension to tackle the bad roads it will improve the ride comfort but will spoil the handling of the vehicle...
Anyways i'm not sure if anythin can be done to a M800 suspension.Rather it will be a DIY job...

thats true the title is perfomance but he also ask about alloys and tyre which i dont think are performance upgrade either.
i said suspension because as he has done some mods on his engine,o his current tyres and suspension may not be able to handle the power given out by engine.
are you sure about the spoiling of handling.it might not impove the handling alot but i dont think it spoils it.

BTW i think if someone is upgrading the brakes he must upgrade the tyres and suspension as well.
experts plz correct me if i am wrong.

this is increasing the diameter of throttle body that makes more air into engine.

its not like his 800 is producing 100 bhp more....
max it will be producing 5-10bhp more and i really dont think he needs to upgrade his suspension for such a small increase in power.
on the contrary alloys and tyres are better performance upgrades right now at the state of tune that his car is in.
better tyres with low rolling friction and higher grip means better acceleration,better economy,faster through corners because of the grip.
not to forget,what suspension upgrades are possible in a maruti 800.

dude,he is planning to upgrade his power and nobody know what is he up to,so i suggest him if he is gonna make his car a beast dont forget that option.
about throttle body enlargement i just said what is the process and what would be done to throttle body,if it is not increasing the diameter of throttle body let me know.
cheers

he has a carburetted m800 so he will also need to upjet his carb if he is going to increase the throttle body.
the suspenion upgrades are necessary if you take the car on a track.
the kind of prformance upgrades he is looking for is probably beating another 800 at a drag or quick launches at a traffic light.
