Im sure Delhi has its share of reputed tuners and persons specializing in such swaps but Bombay and Bangalore comes in to mind. You will find the bottom three most helpful for your query, although I will recommend any one of these - in no order of preference;

1) Karan Shah of K.S. Motorsport, Mumbai
2) Jignesh Goradia of Viper Performance, Mumbai
3) Keshav Aurora aka Psycho, Bangalore.

There re other reputed persons too but I do not know them personally so I have not mentioned their names. The above mentioned have carried out successful swaps in their own and other(their clients) cars with success. Karan, I know, specializes in Lancers even having done Evo swaps besides Mivecs. please P.M. them for details. as they are luckily our forum members.

Contact Autopsyche, he is by far the best in Delhi to tune/mod you car.

Mate you should not have even asked any question here having Autopsyche in your city. He is the best person for mods at any level. Let us know once you have met him, Iam sure you will have a very clear picture as to what you need after a discussion with him. So let the mods begin

I got my Lancer done by Autopsyche. I can assure you he's the best in teh business here in Delhi / Gurgaon.

As for the engine overhaul vs tranplant... they are completely 2 different things. In terms of cost as well performance.

Guess speaking to Arush @ Autopsyche will give you answers to all your querries.

Take a look at my thread on the NEWLY MODDED LANCER. It may help you get an insight


Cheers

Since Autopsyche can psyche an engine at any level please could you ask him for a set of Vitara pistons 75.5mm for raciong use with 9:1 ratio compression (ask him for which car this would be used? and whats the difference when running 9:1) Tuner info.

Lancer3, you can test drive a Mivec transplanted Lancer at our workshop anytime over the next week.

There are plenty of high mileage lancers running arund, ive seen cars putting over 1.5lac kms on the odo still running fine as long as theyre maintained regularly. Overhauling will bring you back to stock power, transplants can be done for more power development. Other engine options that are available for the lancer that can be done are 2.0 V6s and Evo 4/5 conversions tha armotorsport has mentioned in detail.

Cheers,

Arush

Why don't you ask him yourself? And depends on which engine you're using them Vitara/Baleno pistons on.

cheers:Thanks Guys for the quick replies...Thanks Arush for the help(and the invitation for the test drive). Have been an admirer of ur work since always....specially since i spotted a blue lancer done by u (since it had autopsyche written over it....and the other amazing part that i heard is...it was running on CNG with rally seats and FFE and all)..........
Arush would like to know wats the average cost for the engine overhaul for lancer or getting a MIVEC or EVO engine transplant (an approximate cost for both will do)...........also would love to know whether K&N or piper or any such air filter has to be fitted essentially along with the FFE fitting (coz i am just game about that heavy bass sound), or we can just put an FFE without the air filter replacement.
I essentially dont wanna go for a body kit change (i have a OEM kit fitted already) but want a FFE and a suitable engine option for my car
