Thank you very much for your feedback on that. Gives me confidence to go ahead ! Have a 2003 MPFI Zen and has been thinking of going for a Header/FFE combo for low-end ! Would love the deep sound but not really loud ! Any tips ?

Makes sense for you to get the FFE designed for low end torque. The end can by itself can be designed to suit your needs for sound. Just stick around when they are making one and ensure that the way it sounds is close to what you want. While fabricating one ask Shabbir or Jaleel to make one which opens up after a certain rpm, the growl I meant.

Ideally a growl above 2500 is good enough, so that while driving in the city you don't attract the cops attention with a loud car.

Raj is out of the country, thats the reason you are not able to reach him. Contact Shabbir @9886234838.

Recently got my carb zen a FEE with headers. It sounds awesome..

I have been planning for the same but wanted to check with folks who have already done it. How are your FFE's fairing in the long term ? does it still sound well ? Any performance drop ? are you seeing rusting along the exhaust/headers ?
It was fitted in my OHC (which I sold to my friend), it's been more than an year since the FFE has been fitted.
No issues whatsoever.
Yep as Riju mentioned the glasswool strength will decrease on a long run ( probably after 2-3yrs) one will notice d differene in the sound in muffler.

Hi guys,

One of my friend who is also a Team BHP fan but not a member has got a FFE installed on his swift. The FFE was fabricated by Raj and he got the installion done at a garage on Bannerghatta Road.

He has a few questions post installion of FFE and I know he will get answers for his questions on this forum. So here come a couple of questions.

1. Is it normal for a FFE'd car to idle at high RPM (~1800) at cold start only?

2. He is neither a sedate driver nor a hard revving one. So will the FFE have a negative effect of FE assuming his driving style does not change post FFE installation.

3. The high beam failed the very same day the FFE was installed. Is it just a coincidence? Does the FFE have any effects on the electricals of the car?

Hoping to get answers at the earliest.

Will answer to the best of my knowledge as I own a FFE car,

1-With or without FFE, fuel injected cars idle high on a cold engine. If there is a higher than normal idle at start, I suggest you check after running the car atleast 100 kms if it persists .

2-Fuel efficeny did not take a hit on my car and I dont think it would either in this case. It would depend on the design of the FFE also.

3-FFE will not have any effect on electricals. My guess was the wiring would have been affected when fitting the exhaust.

1. All fuel injected engines idle at a high RPM when cold and as the engine reaches the optimal operating temperature, the RPM reduces.

2. If driven sedately, then your friend can expect the same FE as he was getting with the stock setup (if not more). I recollect my esteem delivered 19kmpl with a/c, on a highway run. It was running a K&N OE replacement type air filter and a 4x1 header with straight pipe all the way ending up with a custom SS muffler. Of course, when driven aggressively (on the track) i got 8kmpl.

Otherwise on a normal run i got around 15kmpl on the highway with some spirited driving on open stretches and otherwise mostly restricted to 100-120kays.

3. Maybe a coincidence. Ask him to get it checked. No connection between the two or maybe the wire got cut while installation of the exhaust.

Thanks Aditya.

The low beam is working fine. Its only the high beam which is not working. Is there a separate wiring for the high beam and low beam?

Generally no. The wiring to the socket / holder is one thick bunch which is insulated with tape. Maybe the high beam filament fused on its own.

He had installed Philips 90/100 bulbs which has a cut outer. What you have mentioned above, does it still hold good in this case?


Tharian and Aditya - Before installing the FFE his car used to idle at ~1450 RPM at cold start. Post FFE installation, it idles ~1800 RPM.

The only reason I can think of is the higher rate of flow of the exhaust gases. Let the engine/ECU adapt to the new set up for a while and then check, it should reduce if not to the original rpm idle, but lower than now.
