cheers:
the wrc is probably an add on for the basic spoiler. thats why it probably costs less. if you want the wrc youll have to buy the basic spoiler and then the wrc add on. 4.9k

cheers:
@kaush666: FFE done on the ride does make a difference if not great, but noticeable and one can easily feel the difference between stock exhaust and FFE.
4x2x1 headers are designed for low and mid rpms where as 4x1 headers are for hig end revs. In a 4x2x1 headers the convergence of the header pipes happens from 4-->2-->1 where as in 4x1 headers the convergence of the header pipes directly happen from 4-->1 going into the intermediate pipes and the end can.

@VJ_MAVRICK
thanks for the info . Where did you get it (b'lore or somewhere else) and how much did it cost ?? Desperately looking for one . And since you have a K&N Conical Intake is there any difference and is the plumbing made in a way such that it does not suck in hot air from the engine bay ?? Same question again . Sorry but where did you get it (again b'lore or somewhere else) and how much is the cost ??

Thnx in advance
Cheers

@Kaush666: Please refer my post#62 in this thread itself for the details.

No plumbing work needed to accommodate the CAI filter and the headers but it was a bit tricky to install the headers as the alto engine bay is small and crampy. Nevertheless it can be done and i got it installed in Mumbai from Jiggy Bhai (VIPER)

Shouldn't be unless the offset varies a lot or the width is a problem.

And there is an Alto here in Moradabad belonging to a kid who keeps screwing around with it every week & the latest addition to that are alloys with 185/55 R14 S-Drives!

Of course, he got a jugaad done on the suspension to get it raised to accommodate the tyres!!

hi guys,
as promised here are the pictures of the pipercorss venom kit CAI installed in my ALTO.
it wasent that hard to fit it as most of the attachments were along with the kit.
we used the stock pipe which is attached to the T.B. and MAS. we drilled a hole in it for the breather pipe.

the steel pipe being cut is used for the the support to the both the rubber hoses . ( stock filter pipe and pipercross rubber attachment) .

no thing looks fishy or jughad. no modifications done on the car, no removal of the battry everything is in its place.
if i want to get the stock filter in then i just need to but the rubber hose which we modifed, thats it and you are done with your stock settings.
really impressive work done by my tuner.
the time taken to install was not more than an 1.5hr

performace :-
you feel it as soon as you pep down the accelator peddal. you fell it being lighter than before. what i noticed was i dint need to shift again and again in the city traffic, which gives easy city driving. if you cruise on 70 on 5th gear, its really smooth. but smooth all the wasy as well. works good on a/c and pretty easy on a/c as well.

Sound:
youll notice little groving sound inside when driven little harsh. but you a good grunt sound when you have acc. peddal on the ground.

kmpl:
will update when i get my tank full next time. as the work was done today only and i got my tank full recently, ( just an hour before the petrol price hike )

good stuff. you have found the best location to pick up air from had tried to observe coldest point in engine bay and had shortlisted the same.

can you post a close up pic of the stock pipe which you cut and modified.

@monty9991: try to reduce the sharp bend of the pipe immediately after the CAI's intake.

yes thats the coldest piontive found as well.
in pic 5 and 6 you can see the mod done to the stock pipe. click on the pic and zoom it for more details.

this is the best part in these types of kits. you can make sharp bends without vlocking the air. the pipe which came with the kit has metal wire in it and this wont aloow the pipe to bend like an other. so this will make the pipe all over round even at sharp bends.
but the major part for this bend is the lack of space in this little car . lol

@ MONTY,

congrats on getting the pipercross fitted on your alto. nice clean installation. but i think the bend is too sharp for the air to pass in freely. i think you should work out more to make it a bit straight. i will also try and look in my engine bay whether i get some ideas.

yes there is a sharp bend , but its perfectly round. it is bending in round shape so there should'nt be any problem as there is no restriction to air, as the hose itself wont collaps coz it has metal wire in it.
