You are right. It will just make the car peppy enough, not that need for speed kind of. How abt a Tri-Phase in Honda City?

Probably around 2 lakhs [Mostly more] HKS parts command a higher price than say a custom turbo build using a Garrett...

Well the duties charged are so full of crap...Then there's the shipping charges, and let's not forget that all the dealers/tuners need to make some sort of a margin

As for the roads, well true, but that still doesn't deter those who want more...you always want more

hey about the prices i guess it would be better if you get in touch with karthik himself,its a brilliant kit and as already mentioned to you duties,freight and distributor comission's do add up,as of now are import policies are not so liberal in our country so i guess we have to make do with it,cheers,happy revving..!
