they are NOT at all legal...as per the law. resale value very good when sold to a like minded enthusiast...very bad in market to dealer

So it IS possible to re-register a Bzen or Ezen at the RTO and have it completely road legal?

i dont know abt putting e or b engines....cos it changes the c.c. of a car. i know that for fiat amby and the conti it was possible cos people shifted to diesel. whereas here you are putting a bigger petrol engine while the original is avble in the market...need to check on it

What are the brake mods that go into these cars, I reckon one would need anchors to stop them

hey guys as i had referred to my earlier posts my uncle owns a authorised maruti service station in bangalore..recently had been to his garage and saw this blue zen with a bodykit parked...but guess what it had no engine in it...on enquiring with my uncle he told me tht it was our very dominic who had got the car there..this car is supposed to have an esteme engine confirmed by the 1.3L badge on the car and doms plannin to put in a baleno engine in2 it or is planin to put an imported engine not tht i have heard any1 put in a zen(not aware of the name of this engine)..atleast thts wht my uncle told though he says he cant be 100% sure..wow thts great another bzen in bangalore or may be better..
btw this car is from mangalore..does any1 on the team have any ideas what else is going in2 this car...bcoz i really am eager to meet dom as i have great respect for him after reading the stuff he does with ecu's,the mods and have heard a lot from the workers and my uncle too..but he is busy and has not been to the garage for quite sometime now..so any of u got an idea about this car..
ps:if i bump in2 dom shortly will surely post the details asap...

zens are too light. If you put heavy engines in the front then the ratio may get disbalanced. Anything more than an esteem engine would be an insane thing to do as the rear part will then be too light.

I wonder if anyone can modify a palio with a bigger engine.the car is heavy,has the right tyres and suspension and also has a big engine bay. I find that to be intresting.
