I don't think there is a need to modify the head.

In this case wee need to slightly decrease the compression, not increase. So May be you can do with a double gasket.

If TC can be done go for it. You can think of head mods / gaskets later if the problem of over heating arises.

Enjoy...

First get the External Air Filter, Free Flow / Exhaust... Make sure its not only the noise that u get with the Exhaust leaving the power behind, get it done from a pro.. !! Then Just get the Turbo Intercooler for your Palio Diesel.. but make sure u get the whole complete set.. wich comes with the thing that suppies required amount of fuel to ur engine to avoide knocking of ur car !! Will try and get more info fout u on that !!
Cheers !!

To get more power
Dump the Palio D and buy a Palio 1.6

If you want to keep Palio D, take it to a highway and enjoy a long cruise...

That was a good suggestion Satish

Hey Guys,
presently i'm in TX, US. One of my friends wants to go for a K&N for his Palio 1.2. i'm going to buy one for him.
I own Palio 1.9D and wanted to check with you guys what wud be the best solution for Palio 1.9 D. I'm not looking for a big diff in Power and FE.
My pref. wud be a little push in power without any impact on current FE or a little improvement on current FE wud be welcome .

on K&N site, what I see is this part number for the most of the Palio model.

Replacement Air Filter - part # 33-2793.

what do u guys mean by the complete kit for K&N?? is there anything else that makes complete kit for K&N?
is the above filter is correct for Palio D and Palio 1.2?
if its not the complete K&N kit,, what else is required? and what is the diff between complete kit and just the above item I have mentioned.
thanks for your inputs in advance.
