was just kidding i know no matter how much powerfull the car becomes

there will be some one or the other who can bring me down

although i am pretty satisfied with the car and the power

the best part is looking at the expression on the faces of people when they see a mdi size car going so fast.

Nice stuff there alias!! How abt some latest pics from under the hood?
I dont think any thing will go wrong if you drive your car in shallow water.. say up to the bumper..but be care ful about submerged rocks pot holes.. they must not damage your intercooler..

Why? This is an open forum saar, you can say how much you paid for the setup right here. So, let the cat out of the bag will you. No, PM business and all.

Congrats. It looks good.

I see that the piping is going over the air filter.
1. Will you be able to remove the filter without removing the piping?
2. Does the filter obstruct some air flow into the filter?

Alias, I sincerely feel this deserves better pics. Pics from a cell phone dont do justice man. Just my opinion. Glad you are taking it slow and learning the pace of the car day by day.

I like the guages which are neatly fitted into the "A" pillar pods and the tacho is simple and nice too. Nice BOV. Is it HKS by any chance?

Dont you think the air filter might suck in hot air? I'd suggest a heat sink or relocate the filter. Do check with psycho though. All the best and treat her well. Drive safe.

Do i get to take a peek at her over the weekend?

Apart from my better half and a few team bhp members no one had the guts to sit with me driving the car

I feel like a devil in the devils ride ...
Not to dampen the joy and fun spirit that you are having now, but as others have mentioned, do be safe.

More details and pictures please! What is the approximate increase in power? Which turbo, intercooler and standalone are you using? Can you use regular unleaded or do you need the high octane stuff? Stock brakes and suspension? Come on man! Don't keep us in suspense Mr. Turbo!
Absolutely; can understand the thing about pricing, but the other details, of what all went in can be shared! This suspense it not good!

The pictures does show that it might be difficult to remove the filter without taking off the pipe. And also trying to protect it with a plastic cover when giving for a water wash might not work out.

@ Psycho

So you have now TC'd Vikram's Swift & this Baleno & others which I may not be aware of.

Which of the two would be a better daily drive & which of the two would handle better ?? Curious to know details. What is the power gain in BHP & torque ?

Would either of these be compareable in performance & reliability with a Mivec Lancer 1.6L Straight 4 or a V6.

Nice to see people happy with the performance !!!!!

Cheers
