I have a 2001 5 speed M800, I belive it comes with the booster circuit of the Alto (Am I right?) but I feel not more than 5% difference compared to any other M800 without boosters. Even the mechanics say that the boosters are not really helpful.

What tyres are you using? Make sure you have suitable rubber and fix up your suspension.

Your engine got bored ? What pistons ?

A well designed FFE and a filter will definately improve driveability of the car. Depends on the way its made!

The alto's brakes are very good... cant even be compared to the 800 which asks you to stand on the pedal before they start to respond.

Try pipercross conical filters. If you want, you can go in for mild throttle body expansion. That should surely help. God luck man.

I would suggest u to get a good Free flow setup n K&N stock replacement filter.
Also get good set of tyres 165/60-12 Potenza GIII with 5j alloys

If thats the case then it turns out to be a monsoon upgrade rather than a performance upgrade.
