Ok Guys, I TEST DROVE IT TODAY!!!!!!!
The car has much much more torque and is very very rev happy. I was keeping it below 2000rpm and zipping through traffic.
The suspension feels good..nice and sharp. I like it.
Need new rubber thinking to get TOYO or maybe stick to yokos and spend the extra money on a nice cam.
The compression is pretty high..higher than expected so am happy there too
Now I need to run it in..so unfortunatel no baleno to goa but definitely to pondy if all goes well.

Yes it has a 4-2-1 but its a new one. different specs.
the clutch is butter smooth but amazing clamping..cant say for sure cos i had only one burst to 3500rpm..4000 more to go !!

congrats amit and thought of meeting you and checking the ride on saturday @ the meet anyways there is always another time and i think you will be cruising to goa in this ride itself if am not wrong. Once again congrats and how about a pondy meet on the month end ? I know it will be too much for you after the goa meet. anyways have fun and a safe drive.
