Default FFE on Getz 1.3 GLS...?

Hello Bhpians,as most of you know i have a ICE'd Getz 1.3GLS,its done about 4k on the ODO,now i am planning to get a little boost for my ride as well as very good smooth sounding car,I know the monsoon's are here and can start pouring in 2-3weeks in Mumbai,so this will suerly be done after the monsoons till then i have time to discuss upon getting a complete Stage 1 mods for my ride,I am also in plans to get a body skirt-kit 4sides as mentioned in one of the DIY threads.

As this is my first all experience doing a complete engine mods on my personal car,I would like to know about the pro's and cons of getting it done over a Getz 1.3,my car is still under warranty and it will over by November 2008.

cheers

Ramie

warranty all depends on how well you know the service people. even after getting the ffe and air filter we managed to get one of the shocks changed under warranty.

lol. i dunno. the getz never gave really high mileage to me. when always being floored its gives around 8-8.5 or so. otherwise ive never really got around to calculating but around 9-10 only. this is with the mods.

AFAIK Ramie, you are probably the ONLY ONE getting such a high mileage on Getz 1.3! Kudos to you man!

In fact, most of my friends and many TBHP users have reported FE in the range of 8-10 in Getz 1.3 (including me).

I always top-up the tank,and fill only when the low fuel indication glows by that time its shows about 430-437km on the odo,my driving style is kewl i use 50-50 a/c and i am mostly below 60kmph,hardly like i pull the car,and most of the time my car is used by my bro or is just parked at the same place which you saw

But now i am getting a little serious to get a performance boost for it,as since my civic came i feel this car is too too too slow in pick up hehehehe earlier it was very good

I have a Getz Prime 1.3 GLX and I am also not very happy with the pickup of the car, especially in 3rd gear. Waiting for the warranty period to be over to go for a complete Free Flow exhaust. The only modification I have now is a stock K&N filter.

I am getting 10.5 to 12 kmpl in city with atleast 60% usage of AC. My highway mileage has been the same with almost 100% AC at high speeds. I always fill full tank and use the top up to empty method to compute mileage.

In city I usually do not get to drive fast as the car is primarily driven in M.G Road/ Old Airport Road with bumper to bumper traffic. I take it to high speeds when I get chance. I always use premium fuel (IOC or Speed). Stopped using Shell Premium after the series of price hikes.

The getz is pretty decent in pick-up and fast too in notime it reached 100kmph without any extra efforts,but i have heavily loaded with ICE which makes my ride look lowered from the back.there is a small lag period in the 1st gear thats what i am planning to get rid off,though my driving conditions are pretty slow and average speed,I use normal unleaded fuel,the car suerly gives good decent average and feels tough on the body line

Ramie, pls don'y go for automech on the getz. A 1.3 getz has one installed here, and it sounds horrible!! Get something custom made by Viper. that would be much better.
