Gogi bhai,

Am happy you are liking the car. As discussed I think the very first thing you need to do is change the clutch, trust me you will enjoy the car even better, and remember to get the alignment done.

Any suggestions on which clutch would be ideal for the Swift?

v-16 I stand corrected mate . Un-fortunately when I picked up my S-drives I never found the 55 profiles.

Once again good luck.

Fantastic Stuff Gogi. The car looks wicked in that Red black Combo. Hope to know the list of mods too. What a difference a set of wheels can make to the looks

Akshay Beta....Thanks..with what the carbon fire sticker costs i can happily add a few extra horses to the Swift, but i agree itll look hot, then again im more about it performing hot than looking hot.

Thank guys for the comments on the rims...Yes i loved the rims too (right from the time they were on Jiggys car)
Jiggy Bhai please check the various above comments on the rims...Bola that na mat nikal

Robeeen, Anytime buddy.

Thanks guys for all the comments. Thanks Jiggy for all the help and assistance and the long chats regarding what needed and needs to be done and most of all for letting me whack your rims.
Jitu, thanks for your sms and help too.
You know even when one is sure what one needs to be done one always looks for advice from colleagues and fellow enthusiasts. Thanks everyone

Now for the exhaust note. Please dont expect anything dramatic coz i wanted it this way. The softer the better. I had to get up close to the pipe end to get a really loud sound. Its new and the sound will dampen further and change with the formation of carbon.
The following exhaust note videos are dedicated to NikiBusa the exhaust crazy team mate.

Some more pics.

Ceramic coated custom headers



Ractive conical filter





Tyre specs




Profiles





Hope no ones having problems in viewing the pics...one thing is a pain with the imageshack multi uploader.... only allows thumbnails... or maybe i dont know how to upload full pics......please guide me if someone knows.

Looks hot Gogi! Let us know how much of a difference the mods made to the performance.
Is the exhaust note louder than on Phoenix, or softer?
