There is this place Madaparambil or so near Global Tyres. I dunno how their work is, but have heard a lot about them. I guess are more into bodymods but do small performance stuff as well.

They are good in bodymods not for performance.You want body mods or tuner or you want both?If you want to do port and polish better go to Coimbatore.

From what I've heard, Kurien Kurien of Kottayam also does pretty good work. If you want it subtle, you get a subtle body-kit. If you want it loud, you get a loud body-kit

They do good work with metal (if you want work done in metal) and they do a very good job of painting too. I've seen a Cielo done by him and though it was a bit OTT (as per the client's needs), the paint-work was great).

A bit further off, Kitup in Coimby are also good.

But if you want to keep to Cochin, Madamparambil maybe the best bet. I've seen a Swift they did, and it was done-up well.

Kurien (Road and Track) does stuff only in metal. There is a Swift in TVM that he did, and he took about 9months to finish it.

Pete's is a great company to get work done through. I think they do mostly Skodas, but they might be able to help you with performance mods for your OHC as well.

PM turboindia or visit petes.in, I'd say!

If you are willing to go down to Trichur, try central motor works. They do pretty good external modifications. I remember them doing an OHC from Palaghat last year which looked pretty decent. I also did my Ikon there and I have pasted a couple of pics and the contact info on another post here-ford ikon external modifications.more pics on cardomain as well.

But one thing to keep in mind before approaching Madaparambil is most of them there are too proud/having very heavy head weight !

No offence meant, but it's the reality !
