Gogibhai, what was your car doing at Shivaji Park? Are u participating @ the Speed Run?

The mods are very "secular". You've kept all tuners happy viz.
Automech
KS Motorsport
Viper Peformance
Mahesh Turning Works
(any more?)

Elemantary my dear SalilPawar, the car was at Shivaji Park to get some tuning issues sorted out. Also was discussing reverting back to a stock, i.e. unported and unpolished head just for the participation in the Speed Run. Why reverting back, well because i believe porting and polishing is not allowed in the Street Stock category. If I have a porting and polishing caried out I might have to take part in the Pro Stock category i.e. along with the Turboed and No2-ed variety of Swifts, Esteems and Corsas.... not happening and not a chance to come, even last in that category, so was there.
I was told, no porting and polishing allowed in the street stock category.
So now will watch me getting smoked by Swifts, Esteems and Corsas.

Re the mods, KS and Viper are friends and also tuners of repute so I do go to them for advice and being the friends they are, they always help me out with things, sometimes getting it done by their own people but the ones metioned above have been responsible for getting some work done on my car.

After the Speed Run, will revert back to my modified head and get some extreme mods done....keep watching detective Pawar!!

Thanks. Just go to the painter and tell him you want a Matt black finish. He will do it for you. It should not cost much I guess within 1000-1200 bucks (im guessing) for the bonnet, i dont know how much fo rthe whole car but a team mate had done that from Delhi and the car looked absolutely fab.
I dont have an idea of Hyderabad painters, maybe Stanher would be able to help you on this one.

Ok am back. Have been enjoying the car and getting used to it. Also have been noting where she lacks in the fun department. The clutch was the first area to get fixed. But you guys already know that.
Another area was the way the torque was being delivered. Dipping and jumping up and down. A little bit of tweaking and tuning didi the trick. In consultation with a lot of team mates and over a few brain storming sessions with the more knowledgeable, we did get around to fixing the torque issue.
Now the car has better bottom end punch than before and the mid is wow!! The top also has become better considerably. What a bit of tweaking can do, especially if one can hit the nail on the head. I have had some good advise.
And I maintain..its always an ongoing process....Enjoy.
Got it Dynoed again to learn the difference.
Watch out for more
sheesh somehow cant upload the pic....trying

Thanks guys for all the trouble you guys have taken to educate me re posting the pics. I hope i learn.

Was out of town and as soon as I got back, I went fro a spin in the Swift.
The cars running ok. It needs a little tuning though. So in traffic, i switch the RD ecu off, only till i attend to some tuning issues.
Im now itching to get further mods, taking it one step at a time. Was nearly there on my next echelon till someone beat me to it and got the stuff I was hoping to have. No problem. Maybe later.

I do consult and take guidance from friends regularly about what should or should not be done and the best way of doing it. When I set my mind on it I do a lot of research on the proposed mod and try to understand whats going on, only then I venture into it.
Thanks all you guys who have been helping me out for any small thing I needed to clarify.
Thanks to (not in any particular order);
Viper, Psycho, KS Motorsports, Ford Rocam...to name a few.
No special reason, just felt like it.

Ok moving away from this, did anyone see my new Dyno graph? What?? No Comments??!!

Hmmmmm?? Where to from here??!!
