the NA esteem v/s the TC esteem run was an official 1/8th mile run held at the mmst track, so I don't think the tc did even kick in by 3/4th the distance of the 1/8th mile. NO offences to any one but that was an expected run even before the cars left Bangalore.

Its a very fair comparo, but they will be engines at different levels though.
FYI the current F1 engines are NA.

A well set-up NA engine can always stand a better chance than a shoddy turbo build. People in india plonk a turbo into any given engine without knowing what level the stock is at. First bring the engine to better than stock specs in NA and then turbo it, is the right approach. You can get a good 20-30% with NA (without even a big-bore) if the right job is done and still maintain very good reliability. Then do the forced induction. be it SC or TC.

As for RDs NA car beating Physco's TC esteem, guess who was driving the Physco's car? [/quote]


you may call me stupid but there is no way psyco's car can be beaten by any na car for that matters and i dont thing any one else is allowed to drive the esteem either.

even if it was true (which is hard to believe) must be because of the es 100s which kept the car wheel spining.


and well coming back to the topic this car "THE 91" is famous since a long time , i knew about it even before knowing about the t bhp.com

amit saar if i m not wrong did you had a sticker on ur car near the boot which said iceman and a 1.3 zen with body kit no ending 945 or some hting similar.

Hey guys I am very new to the modification terms, please can anyone explain me what does NA stands for?

Iceman, then you should know Ajay who had Zen with GT under hood. I think we have met some time back.

NA stands for naturally aspirated or normally aspirated whereas FI stands for forced induction.
