Khaadu, if you are planning to visit your hometown in this car, I suggest you forget low profile dreams.

check the bushings on the mid pipe and the brackets on the end pipe. Most often than not, that's where the problem lies.

Guys, went back to Arushs workshop to sort out the noise ... it was the 1st pipe after the headers that was touching the body and thus the racket . Had it sorted out in half hour and now no sound so did get to push her .

Firstly I need to change the rear muffler ... teh sound kicks in at about 2k and then stays the same almost till the red line , so that needs to be looked into as I had wanted one that increases with the revs and maxes out near teh red line . This one is bound to give me a head ache as the sopund inside the car is more than its outside ...... thank god i had the audio installed before the free flow ...

Coming to what matters most ..... IS SHE MOVING or IS SHE MOVING -- I never seen the needle go that quick to 100 , hit 100 in 2nd -- and thats when the rev limiter hits in . Never got to push her up in 3rd ... but hit the 140 mark before I had to ease of and I was still languishing in 3rd !!! Will need to find a stretch devoid of any men in white uniforms for me to do a few time runs .

But Im sure its faster .. and the air filter still needs to go in -- so as of now shes only breathing out better !!! Imagine how she wud move when she breathes in also better air ... I can dream of the turbo and what that wud do .

But yeah .. I need to get the soudn sorted out real quick !!!!!

Cheers

"teh sound kicks in at about 2k and then stays the same almost till the red line"

This is going to be painful, couple of weeks back i got FFE fitted to my OHC and the sound kicks in by 3500rpm, till then its mild hmmmm. love it since it doesnt attract traffic cops attention and i hate slow moving vehicles making noise(Only noise no power types heheh)

Thanks Viper

Vbox Racelogic. Thats what they are called. I am sure you have heard of a cam (not the one in your head or the cars) how about some nice pictures and some sound clips?

Who is that nitwit holding the cam? Ek video bhi cant take properly or what? So what are the end results regarding the performance from the headers.

Stock tyres that come with the Vxi model ... and they almost at the BALD stage . Im thinking of upgrading to 205/50 16 , just thinking as of now . Also its only gotten the headers+ exhaust . No filter as I still can't figure out where to place the filter as there is no place in the bay where I feel it will get cold air .... thus no filter .

the nitwit holding the camera is the delivery guy , the one who goes house to house delivering the milk ........ and he lost focus coz at launch all the stuff from the dash board came tumbling down , and if you notice carefully I shifted to 2nd way too soon .

Will get a proppa run soon ...
