Reports:

Could be psychological, but the engine is a bit silent and pick-up has
increased. Dunno yet about the FE but will report later. It has been
claimed that there is an increase of about 3 to 4 BHP and more torque.
The same has been corroborated by those who have got it done.

More information shall be provided after more driving experience over
a period of time.

Cost:

Air Filter Green Storm: Rs. 6000/-
Green dynamisation kit, inlet flexi pipe,
& brackets: Rs. 3200/-
Install charges: Rs. 300/-

TOTAL: Rs. 9500/-

Can you please elaborate more on this? I'm a bit intrigued by the clogging bit every 2 months. Mumbai is not as dusty as Delhi/NCR is.

Thank you. Am particularly not too happy with the plumbing. Don't like that many bends. I'm considering drilling a hole on the right arch and give a straight hose to the filter.

Also in the back of mind have a snorkel in thought, though a friend discourages it. And bloody expensive too.

i know. but this is the 2nd time its happened in two months. even rippergeo seems to have it on his swift. the signs to look out for is when the car suddenly cuts fuel to the engine at say 3k rpm in 2nd or 3rd gear. then you know what the problem is and can get it cleaned. of course thats a minor setback for the amount this filter makes the engine free revving.

Akshay,

You might want to try and change the location of the Intake pipe. Having a CAI has its advantages and disadvantages as well. By routing the pipe to the bumper grill you end up sucking in a lot more dirt & maybe water during the monsoons which can have catastrophic effects.

Would make more sense to leave it where we originally had and accept the growl.

akshay, its not that bad for me. immediately after installation, i was able to rev the swift to 110kmph in 3rd with ease. by which time it was doing 4000rpm, and screaming. now at 100 in 3rd gear, i have to upshift to keep the acceleration exciting. its not the way you described. so obviously, my problem is different and probably minor.

Default Plumbing

Remember me talking about being unhappy about the plumbing a few threads back? Well, continuing on this, I have to admit I was not too very happy with the plumbing that Autopsyche guys did while fixing this filter. What they did was to remove the thick rubber air hose bolted next to the radiator and then just directed this flexible pipe near that gaping hole.

This bit was nagging me ever since and yesterday I decided to take
things in my own hand and carried my tool set to office. That's where I
can work peacefully without any interference from anyone...!!

I started with removing the front bull bar and bumper and then removed
the RHS HL assembly. That gave me ample working space. I refixed the
original rubber hose back to where it belonged and then cut the
flexible pipe of the filter and inserted the rubber hose inside it. Of
course took some effort, that included the removal of the soft spring
inside that rubber hose. Then reclamped everything. This also reduced
the number of bends amde me quite happy too. Refitted everything back
and now a contented 'filtered' Scorper..

Good work, but move that screw (clamp that joins ol and new pipes) away from the AC tubes, though covered in rubber, they are aluminum and will eventually get damaged with the impact due to engine vibration as well as the start and shut down shunts.

This is what I dreaded. Was hoping against hope that you would not see this thread. But you did. And thanks for appreciating.

It does go through the same route but the second bend of the flexible pipe got eliminated as the rubber hose took care of it..
