Wimwian - I meant to say on Picasa there is a option download original pic, just enable it like Razor has done.

Small update:
Got the intake pipe and assorted paraphernalia.
Looks nice and sleek. Gonna fit it once I have the aluminium heat shield in place.

Here's a pic (courtesy Viper):

@desigNation: Thanks man!

@lancer_maniac: Not measuring FE until the run-in period is over for the overhauled engine. But, according to Viper, there should not be any appreciable drop. Let's see...

IMO the fuel efficiancy goes down MAINLY because of the change in driving style. The high revs are the main culprit - shifting gears @ 6k RPM is bound to bring down fuel efficiancy. Coz we love to hear the sound of the free flow & the VVRRROOOOOMMMMMMM.

If you maintain the driving style that you have been used to - the drop in FE would not be much.

Cheers

Hey Abhishek,

Must say that the car does look really stunning. Very nicely executed job and would like to offer a suggestion. Please look after the car carefully and do polish her once every 3-4 months.

Dont think I need to tell you how difficult it is to maintain a black car. Either keep it sparkling else no point.

Viper

@moral, redsfx: thanks!

@viper: thanks buddy, and yes, i am well aware of the challenges of maintaining a black car, especially in a city like calcutta. here, people take sadistic pleasure in scratching/harming good looking, well maintained cars. don't ask me why! will be a tough task, but as i mentioned before, this is my labour of love!!
