you could do some basic mods to increase the pick up of the car
1) you could get a K&N filter its about 4500(rough cost)
2) a complete exhaust job header and a ffe (10 k)
3) tri phase 9k+
4) try to get the rev limiter removed

these mod should do the job for you but if you are still not happy get a 1.1 l engine from a wagon R

If the car is well maintained and serviced it should be normal. A 800cc engine will never feel as powerful and torquey as a large engine. You could plonk in a performance air filter and FFE and take it from there. You feel the car to be more responsive.

@ Manikjeet- The tri-phase costs just 9k? Thought it was 21k. Also how does one move up the rev limiter?

i guess when natasha talks about pick up she means low-mid range and in no way would removing the rev limiter help that ! that would help in really pushoing the car all the time much like dragging(shifting as late as possible) and that would definately reduce the life of a stock engine ! so thats one mod i would'nt suggest unless you're into drag racing or don't care about the life of your engine!

i think a complete ffe should do it coupled with a k&n or similar filter! get the car breathing better and i think thats good enough !

Guys,

The Tri-Phase costs Rs13500/-(MRP) and not the other rates that are mentioned here.

Dont know where you guys get these figures from.

you should get headers done for low-mid range and get your self a good filter and free flow exhaust.

You can keep ractive as an option as well. They are a lot cheaper. However not avalaible in Goa. Try to pm pjspeed to get a quote. I think the sf100 costs 1300.

@manikjeet- hoping abhibh. gets here quick to help us with the revlimiter. I am hoping that it is not set at the software level on the ecu.
