Wow thats awesome. Can you elaborate a little bit more on that. Honda and the Civics are the top favs of tuners and turbo guys around the world. How come only few have got the tuning spot on?

What exactly did you mean, can you elaborate?

Yes, Honda and the Civics are the top favs of tuners and turbo guys around the world. But the R18 civic ie the one sold in our country, has very few people doing stuff to it.

This car is probably the first and only Turbo civic running in India, at this point of time.
There is one another in China and about 5 civics that turboed and running well.This is what i gather from other forums. There might be a some more cars in the world which are not represented on these forums.But still the numbers are really small.
Besides to have a car running the same state & level of tune as the guys in the US, in INDIA without sending the car abroad or having foreign tuner's fly down to tune the car is itself something.

Well, the people in question have a history of doing what no one else thought possible, so it's only a matter of finding some free time, for them.

The tune was complete, but with the never ending quest for performance ...there is no such thing as completed. The car is in the process of stepping up to the next level and we shall put up some posts when it gets there.

Great looking car with the right kind of mods.

Apart from the big ticket item of it being the 1st civic to be TC'ed, that too in B'lore.

Way to go chaps...
