The increase in torque that i get is because both of the catcons have been removed and I have a straight through pine instead.

PS: Thanks psycho for educating me on this.
does the car pass emission tests?

what did this project cost and where can i locate psycho (contact no will be nice as well)?

It should pass the PUC tests fairly well.

My esteem has a FFE (4x1) made by psycho, the cat and center muffler was removed and it was running a straight pipe. Passed the emission tests with no issues.

Now the center muffler is back though purely for reducing the exhaust drone inside the cabin.

I really wouldnt mind doing something like that on the SX4. How much would it roughly set me back by?
Also, with regard to earlier posts of how someone would rather buy a RS for 7 lacs than buy a car for 5 and turbo it for 2 - turbocharging a car costs 2 lacs???????
Isnt there a simpler option? Or rather, cheaper?

The car passes emission tests without any issues. The filter is a K&N.

Yes, when I met Psycho on Monday after talking to him over the phone about installing headers into my Cedia, I instantly had feeling, this is gonna rock. Well when I picked up my car from the garage on Saturday , boy was i wrong!

It didn't just rock...It drove me insane!!!!!!! My car and me, well...we just got "Psychoed!". A neat a job was done on installation of the headers, I have gained phenomenal increase in torque and a very notable increase in power at about 4000 rpm upwards. Vasu's idea to chrome plate the headers with hard chrome, added the touch too.

I must admit, everything from the time the vehicle was left at the garage till the time it was delivered to me was so well taken care of(full marks to vasu and gang at the garage) and at the end of the day I am one very satisfied chap out here, because I got exactly what I wanted. A daily drivable car, thats made even more drivable, with a streak of the dark side, so when messed up with, boy am I game! Also I would like to add, I didnt want my muffler to roar but still gain good mid rage power...And thats exactly how my baby got "psychoed!"

Thank you so much Psycho. I definitely owe u one pal.

Sorry its S.drive. I mistyped it. Its just the Borla exhaust muffler, it note is very low bass till 2500rpm but when it is widely open its very loud, too good.
It had 'TI EN' suspension also, but he removed it since its too hard, not that good for the streets.

Ah, this car has made it here. Yeah, I heard he found the Tein too hard for street use. Importing stuff isn't too much of an issue for him.

Even those aren't much better to be honest. I assume you mean Tein suspension. Its a pretty well known fact that most hard core jap suspension upgrades are not streetable in India. Most of them them are very very hard.

Adjustable coilovers are the way to go in India - especially if the car is a daily driver.

Ya, that Tien wasnt adjustable one. We can convert into adjustable one right. One suspension spacialist in coimbatore do the process. He quoted 8k for my zen for the conversion.

Someone is converting regular dampers into adjustable ones? I'd love to see that.

Adjustable coilovers normally only adjust height and damper settings. A stiff ride is caused mainly by spring ratings, which are not adjustable.

Japs are about ok when it comes to suspension. Fine for street and a bit of racing, but nothing too serious.
