finally ! When I broke this news on here some months ago, I was accused of spreading BS by a senior Bhpian !

It has come at a wrong timing though. I wanted to take my car for some servicing ( incl hydraulic fluids bleeding and re-filling ) that I dont trust the local work shops to do well ! Now, when do I go ? Electra was the closest!

Now that Krupesh is seldom available at Electra , if you had to go for mods like port and polish of cylinderhead, enlarged throttle body, piper cam fitting and tuning , where would you go ? Would like some feedback from guys who have had these done.

The Tuner database on tbhp has only 2 tuners for chennai .

Hey Prassanna ,

You can still go to hi-rev and dont know about speed works (After the terrible incident to madhan).
I dont think there are any more shops left !

I heard the place called Torque is good as well. Had a friend who recently did some mod jobs with second size pistons, turbo kit etc etc. Jst waiting for the car to run in for sometime to show its true colors, which will tell us if its a success or a flop job. The car is a SWIFT.

I hope they have upped their infrastructure now. As a start-up, I have seen them work with some bare minimums. I am not too sure if I would advise anyone to go there for mods, but for regular maintenance, a defnite yes !

A bunch of nice lads, eager to help.

I will probably see them (They are the closest garage to mine !) soon for my suspension overhaul work and I hope, the approach to their garage is fine now. Last time I went there, had a tough time negotiating all the ditches.
