Vivek, Thanks for the excellent write up and sharing the experience with us. If it is truly putting out 500 horses as you said it would, then it is one of the best engine mods ever.

It will be always better if you can get someone to put in some more data. More than supporting the claims, the thread will be enjoyable and useful to a much wider audience.

PS: Please ignore the immature comments that you got on your writing. Kids you know..

Thanks for sharing and converting the experience you had (with this tuned car) to words, so that we could also have that same experience as yours.That was a nice write up.

Anyway is there any new news from the customer who have this 500bhp(so claimed) car.
Just wondering what would have been his reaction after driving that car!!

Give the man some respect that he deserves.
Let me clarify whose pete?? I think hes not a tuner , he supplies parts and makes a sale. What ever you see is nothing but some one in UK sells and petes gets and resells here in india.

Tuner is some thing like Ks motorsports or Leela krishnan etc.. who knows what a turbo does or what a engine is about. Pete is just a business man. My stand stays there.

OK who created this 500 Dah bhp monster - its james from JBD AUTO DESIGNS UK. James is said to be one of the best vag specialist in UK. Gtrs 28 or 30 turbo kit was supplied and all the internals hardend by this guy. Pete just sold that complete package. So please dont mislead people by saying pete is a tuner and all credit goes to him. If and IF I had 2 crores I would be more famous with some x brand in india buying press and making false claims.

For 14 lks over skoda rs, I buy a 350z is my stand again. We do have intellectual laws in india from late 2000.

+1 to that. Except that other (so called) tuners he has mentioned, one of them does it with JDM engines, and do the mechanical parts imported, other a great driver in indian rally history. In defence of petes, he is a business man (a good one at it), get the press (hey, its a democratic country). Atleast he is selling quality products that are imported. unlike some other tuners who source turbos from Gujili and sells to unsuspecting kids.

Just for clarification - before you arrived at this conclusion did you make an effort to know/find out who Peter is or what he does? More importantly do you know HOW he does it? Do you know WHERE he does it? Do you know what resources/manpower/equipment/ or time he brings to bear on each or any of his builds? Have you seen his workshop, his equipment, witnessed both his dedication and his passion? Have you ever spoken to the man? I have done all of this!

I have also had the opportunity of doing all this with one of the above 'Tuners' you mentioned - and I don't think there is anything to even compare! Believe me when I tell you this gentleman has as much idea about turbo's as I do - and has a well established record of blowing up his builds ! I can give you scores of examples - and so can a few others on this forum.

We do? I'm trying to understand the relevance here.



DISCLAIMER: I am NOT associated with Peter or his company in ANY way other than being one of his many many happy customers. I am yet to see a single reliability problem arising out of any products or services rendered or sold by Peter. How many of the so called 'tuners' can make a similar claim I wonder!

This thread was someone's impression of a car - THATS IT!! No where did Peter ever claim anything anywhere - so I think we should all do him the favour of keeping him out of this!

Yes china is also a free country and so are their practices. Oh one more thing, he made all the remaps by himself and uses custom code franchise. I believe some one who copies 99.99% of some ones tuning setup is a business man . My stand, if leela or Ksmotorsport did the same they are the same to me. Till now I havent heard abt the guy who actually did this setup on this thread. Please do give credit to James not peter.

Since you know so much about engines, tuning, and how each tuner would have tuned the same car, could you also please tell the forum how the other tuners would have gone about doing the same job? Which of the parts Peter imported would have been made in the local workshops of the other tuners, if they had gotten a chance to do this job?

Precisely why the guys with $$ trust Peter. Instead of doing some half baked job, he gets the best guys from Europe to do it for you.

Yes, I am sure you would make a lot more false claims if you had another 2 crores. Is that good?

Vivek, as usual, another great write up on a one-of-a-kind car in India. I for one, do not care about the numbers (bhp), but go by the experience. Obviously, from your naration I can almost feel how good it would have been.

I think it is best if we keep Peter out of this.... It is not polite to comment on something unless he had made these claims here.

Also, more importantly, why are we even expecting the owner of the car to dyno it and proove to us that it is indeed 500 BHP?

I feel sorry for Vivek here who is trying to narate a real-life experience of sitting in the car while being driven hard, versus some one out there who talks crap based on knowledge gained from websites. Let's appreciate the lad for his good work, and by the way, I am sure he knows his narration if he can make a living out of it!

Was looking at your profile. You seem to be a student driving a Santro.

I can understand how it feels, it is pretty easy to get miffed at people blowing up enormous sums of money modding their cars to generate silly amounts of power. Once you get a job, and have enough money to buy a fast car, and maybe have a run in with a local tuner who would blow up your car, maybe you wont feel so bad about "James" coming down and helping somebody who can afford a powerful car?

Some people just fume with jealousy. No matter what happens in the world.
The tall claims of saying if I had money, I would also do this and that is always their way.. It's just blah blah and will not take these paper rockets anywhere.
Calling somebody a MacAnic ain't going to take them anywhere either.

I hope to see more similar cars in our country. Bring it on!

What West carefully chooses to ignore or overlook is that amongst the 'Tuners' that he's mentioned, one has had two serious builds of his go seriously wrong and both are known on the forum.

@west, your problem with this thread seems to be that James is not credited with the work. And you feel that Peter has been falsely praised. This is just the impression I get from reading your posts on this thread.

Well, I dont know about you, but for me, I would say the work has been done by Peter. In his workshop, with his mechanics. He may have used the expertise of the best guy in the business (props to him), but what matters to me is that I have someone to call, in India, if anything goes wrong.
