Lovely exhaust note! That sound will improve further after you run in about 500-1000 km cause muffler is new.

By the way, does the removal of the catalytic convertor have any adverse impact on the PUC? I am not very comfortable with that bit of the whole idea. Loved the sound of the FFE though, Shrivz. Will the sound and the power change with addition of the Catcon? Also, nice alloys. I have driven a Baleno with stock 13" and skinny tyres. My stock shod Petra does turn better than that. I do not have enough experience on fat Yokos, but extrapolating from what I have experienced, I am sure these feel like rail tracks on corners.

My car passed the PUC test. No worries on that front, though Riju told me that if I remove the stock Auxillary muffler, it won't pass the PUC.

Hi Shrivz -

Please post some more of your mods and pictures of your baleno.

Also it has been long since you have changed the FFE. Hence can we have a long term review of your FFE

Regards,
Kailash

I had the honor of riding in this wonderful car during my Pune trip. The suspension is stiffened and the exhaust note is not just for listening pleasure alone. The car is actually quick and am actually toying with the idea of getting a street spec header since then. Nice clean interiors too. Maintained very well i must say. I had no idea the car was 98k KMS run and Shrivz was the third owner. I assumed it was bought brand new.

I have a straight pipe from the headers till the end can. No center muffler or cat con. I was worried when you mentioned the above during my Pune visit. Last week, i had left my car for service and they did a PUC test post servicing. It passed... with flying colors.

Aditya, correct me if I'm wrong, but you're currently running drag spec headers (4000+ RPM) in your car right ? In your opinion, in what way are the street spec headers better than the drag spec ones ?

I'm asking because I'm contemplating a switch to drag spec stainless-steel headers (my current one was made for street use, i.e. 2000+ RPM).

Ohh, that's great!! Unfortunately, I can't tolerate a louder exhaust, so no straight through for me!

Hey, wait a min, its possible to fabricate another bolt on straight through pipe which can be used occassionally!

Srini, i am running headers (4x1) which kick in at around 4k RPM. Dunno what the correct term is - Race spec or drag spec.

Driving with this header design (4x1) is enjoyable on the highways and on city roads with free flowing or very less traffic. In stop and go conditions and bumper to bumper traffic, it is very painful to drive... you have to ride the clutch constantly in first gear.

This type of header promises more mid range and top end power.... fun to drive on track and on highways but a curse on city roads in chock a block traffic. Street spec is designed for city driving and street usage, where low end torue is high. Hope this helps.

P.S. If you are still keen on going for a drag/race spec header do send me a PM.

No way bro. Its a fact. I thoroughly enjoyed the ride. And yes, you could get a straight pipe fabricated which can be bolted on. Not a major job at all.

Hi Shirvz.. nice pics of your Headers+end can. I have not read many reviews of the 4x2x1. Could you explain more on why you chose this spec, and if you see any negatives in your current set up.
