Seems the Goa effect is still very much hanging over Iceman's head.
It's time to spill the beans, dude! Don't keep us at bay.

So whats this stock thing I have been hearing? First I thought it was a joke, but now am not too sure. Whats the latest on the car? How are the mods holding up?

and more importantly what has gone into it recently?

It's really stock! Why does no one believe us?

And no, not 'forged internals' stock. Factory stock!

post 57, by Iceman says, 1.78.5 2.overbored 3. new one costs upwards of 10k 4.200 5.stock baleno pre euroIII = 200 new baleno euroIII= 185 Stand alone coming up..need the moolah. deciding which one to go for. maybe RD dont know yet. __________________ Post 63 by Iceman: Yes it has a 4-2-1 but its a new one. different specs. post 104; unning stock exhaust at the moment. Wil soon need new suspension though, since this one is not 100% to my taste. Also next I need new rubber, this one does not hold unless heated up ,rain and sand lets just not even mention it There was also mention of imported liners etc, which I couldn't fine, (were deleted in the post/ may be?) After all the mention abt overbored, Standalone ECU, 4-2-1 exhaust (probably changed back to stock) etc etc, you are telling it is stock??? Or he got tired of mods, and went back to stock engine? hard to believe. I will wait for the owner's comments. Cant believe some one who has experienced all these, going back to Stock. !!!!

oh, I am NOT doubting V1p3r saying its stock. My question was WHY going back to stock after these extensive mods? Any specific reasons ? Where is iceman?

Oh boy, I thought guys were pulling Amits legs saying its stock but it flies. I remember last year talking to Amit and being excited about the build. I was excited because I was also building the car at the same time, and I was searching for plugs at that time. So now I realize the car is actually back to stock. But the question is why?

I thought 91 is back and back for good!

91 is back and is back for good. But it had to go back to stock for it's future plans. The old engine would not hold up the insanity that is being planned for the new build. That is all I can say for now.

Hey Amit, what suspension are you running? Did you upgrade your tyres and wheels?
