Is the exhaust note louder than on Phoenix, or softer?
Its softer than the phoenix Razor but even this bugs me. I will do something about it in a few days. I dont like attracting attention through the car....My looks are enough for that ....
I will get it quietened or changed. Lets see in a few days.

Thanks and yes im sure he does. You have seen his own car and the side winder, amongst other things. Jiggy has been a true friend. He has throughout helped me source out stuff whenever i needed anything for this job and has been available to help out always.

No You're not wrong, Viper would have charged me money, I got it done for free....
Seriously, the job is done from Automech because i get all my exhaust job done from them since ages but i know that Viper's exhaust guy is brilliant. I can vouch for that seeing the jobs on his Vtech and the Sidewinder

Thanks Suri Saab!! You can chalo anytime Bro. Next, well i dont know. Looks like I'll have to sit with you guys once again and let you convince me... but this is not the end i promise you.
The Yokos are great tyres and good value for money. Maybe our Tyre expert Ishan will be able to comment on that.

I had posted earlier that the headers are ceramic coated..well i presumed they were but the fact is that they are coated with a Metal Aluminium alloy. Before I went to them for exhaust sound issues yesterday, i happened to touch the headers only to get a rough feel it which is quite the opposite of ceramic coating. Thought id let you guys know.

S-Drives are fantastic tyres & given Yoko India's pricing policy, they are also very good VFM. If someone wants Performance tyres for daily use (Please note Jitu bhai!!) these come very highly recommended.

Good choice paaji!

Well I dont know much about tyres except not to use Chinese and Korean ones. The choice was left to the tyre dealer and then after consultation with Jigness bhai we decided to plonk these on. im glad coz they hold the road very well and there is no tyre noise, a big problem i had with most Pirellis

Wow Gogi I didnt expect a New project so soon(after the fiat)

Great pics, the car looks great.

One Koshun though, Shouldnt the air filter be put some where far from engine & I am saying this as you have used good plumbbing for the Air Filter, I mean wouldnt placing it some where behind the fog lamps be better.

Am no expert just correct me if I am wrong

You are right but im not an advocate to putting the intake behind the fogs or anywhere lower than this because during the rains, the damn thing will also suck in water being sprayed from the vehicles tyres in front and a bigger problem will be during slight floods...oh my gosh i dont even want to think about this.
This is the best place one can plonk the filter in or then moving the battery a few inches closer to the firewall and extending the filter to where the battery is presently is another good option.
I am getting a metal (probably Aluminum) shield fabricated to be put under the filter to stop the heat from getting to the filter

Simple option: Get a K&N stock replacement(aka panel) filter.
K&N benefit with stock CAI
