The car has run close to 3500 kms after the mods. I am not facing any issues with the clutch as the clutch has been upgraded to an Exedy Stage 2 clutch. The suspension is stock and no problems with that also.

alais man dont go dragging every day with so many cars. You might end up being sorry. Mate, enjoy the car and throwing it around but dont push it to redline on every gear, you are bound to invite trouble. But seriously Vikram_D, just for the sake of being inquisitive, why dont you guys have a friendly drag to see where the two cars feature against each other

Swift 1.3L Turbo v/s Baleno 1.6L Turbo both cars similar weight, if boost is same? Baleno is at advantage since its 1.6Ltr.
but result can vary depending upon Turbo used and state of tune on each car.

the turbo used are same and the state of tune should also be same since both are done by same person

only difference is the emanage on the baleno and the standalone ecu which the swift has not sure whether that makes any difference
and the boost is also same 6psi

The baleno will definitively be quicker as ford rocam has mentioned thanks to its bigger engine.

@alias - this weekend is a busy one maybe next weekend.

Well, bigger is not necessary always better, its how the torque curve these boosted engine will produce will matter.
Like i said baleno is already 300CC more than swift so its an advantage,but you never know.
