Default exhaust throwing flames

Hi sumit,

In the second video the exhaust is throwing out flames, can you please shed some light on how this is done ? Does the setup throw flames when shifting gears too ?

VJ Mavrick, why is the exhaust tilted towards the centre? Was it too big for the alto?

hey,
this is just to find out all of you who have the end can fitted on an alto. do you still have the mid muffler which is behind the rear axle, or have you had that removed to get the endcan/muffler fitted. i have an automech ffe and i want a slightly deeper sound, so was planning to get a remus endcan fitted.i just required details on the fitment and weather the muffler behind the axle is retained or not. also is threr any place where i could get an over axle muffler.

This thread might be of some help.

@rg_chn: Gautam! I have the complete FFE (4x2x1 headers + Intermediate pipes+Muffler+end can) sourced from VIPER. Well! The end can can be of your choice and I don't think it is tilted as the shape of it is so and it is not big for the alto. My ride is the 1st alto in the Video's not the second one

@lilMonster: Is your header set up 3x2x1? as I think Autmech makes these for sure and some of our team bhpian alto rides do have them ("amit_mechengg" is one of them I think). In my ride the mid muffler is out for my 4x2x1 set up and I am not sure about Automech.

Sorry, my bad. Thought the 1st one was yours. But hey, the one in the 2nd video is tilted. I wonder why.

Default Smoked Tail Lights

I finally smoked the tail lights of my Alto yesterday. Used a can of VHT NightShades which someone had brought for me from the US. I'm sure you can find a can of it somewhere in India but I could'nt!

Here are some before and After pics:

BBS ! The ride looks neat and do you have a FFE? If not any plans? Certainly it will look more neat and mean.

Has anyone tried replacing the headlamps of an old Alto to the new clear headlamps?

I have a 2001 Alto VX 1.1 with the old head lamps (non-clear type). I would like to know whether fitting the clear headlamps is possible.

Any help here would be appreciated.
