Exactly.

Jerish - I was just trying to tell you that nothing of that sort existed. That is all. Maybe the way I put it sounded a little harsh. Sorry about that.

Drove it last week

1) Its not loud nor boomy just right for being stealth yet be heard at close range.
2)Its hugs road far better than when it was stock. It should take curves at more higher speeds easily now. I did some curves but didnt want to give its owner goosebumps and hence was easy on the pedal.
3) The fun after 3k is a thing to be felt. Remember seeing 140 during a burst.

Hope I get to drive it again on a road I have in mind just right for this setup soon.

I never tested the top speed when it was on stock and i dont think there will be change in top speed.

Jeez, did he get a high listening to the exhaust note ?

On another note, did he manage to keep up with Jerish and his 1.6 ?

Jerry

I think I came across your car twice while in TVM and on both occassions I flashed my lights and honked in the hope that you might turn around either to look at at least to abuse what you may have thought was a bully. The first was opposite some kind of exhibition that was going on at the Women's College (opposite the Taj Residency) and the second near the police stadium.

Next time, perhaps.

Oh yes he did. It was not that loud, but he was able hear the low burble pretty well. You were near the Police Stadium at that time.

Nope, he didn't. Jerish was going at a decent pace, so cousin could tail him

Yours must be the most entertaining car to drive this side of a vRS. If a stock Fiesta 1.6S could whip a cedia and a civic on a race track, I can only imagine what it can do now with all these mods.
