Default new tuner in town....almost a tuner...

a few days back a guy come to my workshop to buy some mechanicals..... he tries to argue about some head design... and then he gives me this.... "if you put the head of a 1.3 esteem to 1.0 zen your zen becomes a 1.3" ....... i go huh ..... he claims he tunes cars and stuff.... here people with so little knowledge of what changes the cc and stuff start tuning cars... ... after that i stopped arguing with him.. i go " you the best"

its a gud thing they try to do what they want... but atleast do your homework....

Is he changing the pistons, reboring etc? Or does he claim, increased CC by just replacing the head?

I don't see how that can be possible. Increase by 300 CC isn't a joke.

Hmmm... maybe he does that and tells his customers Viola! Here is your e-zen! complete with the 1.3 esteem head. And that'll be 60k please sir. Me thinks this is what that guy might be upto.

I remember Anand from Jayam automotives doing something to his esteem. He had a radical head a DOHC unit if i am right and lots of other goodies in it. He even had a LSD on it!
