I couldn't answer that question myself. I can vouch that the RS is definitely very much faster and the torque is tremendous.

Also I did not touch any of the internals in the engine of the City either. The City's engine is good upto around 150bhp I heard.

Well, if your TC city can't beat the RS, then it surely isn't producing enuf power or the power produced, isn't reaching the wheels, the way it should.

Poonawala's TC City 1.5 which maynot even have 140 bhp smokes the RS in every performance test. 0-100 in 7.9 secs, 0-150 in 17 secs (that's 2 secs faster than the Accord V6 and 4 secs faster than the RS).

Do get your City checked on a dyno.

Hi Heavy foot,

I will put up the pics as soon as the car is ready. All the installtion, plumbing and electronics are in place. just need to fine tune the car. Had all the work done in madras at kamlesh patel's work shop. The electronics lone cost about 70K. These include a wide band AFR, SAFC-II, EGT, fuel pressure, Boost gauges, MSD ignition controller etc. which are all mandatory and will help with tuning. I will start a new thread with all details.

He should be able to help,
Thanx for your reply. I am from Madras. I have already spoken with Leela. Also the MSD techsupport sent me a fax so we have sorted it out. Did you go oversize on your injectors or are you running the stock injectors. An idea what the cc/min for the stock injectors on your city are?

Would love to get it checked on a dyno but we dont have any i know of here in Cochin.

Actually unless you actually dyno test the car you really wont know what the cars are capable of but the RS definitely feels faster. And mine does have a free flow system with a cold air induction kit and a upgraded turbo intake pipe. the total package claims incresae of around 10 to 15% power but i actually dont know. I can feel the extra push but dont ask me how much. THKS

Hey TI,

was looking at your Rs pics and couldn't help thinking that it would look way better with some dark tints!
