Congrats on your PiperCross Installation monty. Along with CAI do plan up FFE too in the future as you will really enjoy it revving it up. Again, is this 997CC alto you are having?

What specifically do you have in mind about getting performance mods on your ride. Assuming it is stock car, are you planning CAI and FFE installation? Contact inhouse member Psycho or V1P3R to get any pointers on your requirements.

monty i suggest that you rectify that sharp bend. i agree the pipe wont collapse or anything but the air it receives from a straighter pipe will be more than what it receives from this.

Go for a stage by stage modification even though you are not a modification buff. The general trend and infact i went along with a tyre and wheel upgrade and then CAI and FFE . In this way you can enjoy the ride and feel the difference and as suggested do contact them for your requirement.

Yea Techno oh my bad ... since i drive a 1.1 i notched down the CC thinking to be around 997CC. Forgive my ignorance and again the current alto's i think is around 800 CC (did not bother to check this specifically)

there is very little space in this litle car. so have to accomodate the pipe here only. but it can be done if i make a customised pipe comming from TB. but again i dont want to spend too much in modding this car, as i am waiting for dad's CEDIA to grab and install this in that, with many other performance parts.

Hi all,
Can anyone please tell me where in Bangalore I can get aesthetic mods done to my Alto? I already have Aura alloys and Goodyear tubeless tyres. I would like to get the following done:
  • Sports Steering Wheel + Gear knob
  • Neon Handbrakes and Pedals
  • Custom Made Decals
  • Under Body Neons
  • Side mirrors internally adjustable
  • Nice looking RPM Guage
Thank you
Drive safe.
F.
