Looks like you got the GLX?! That engine is a fantastic buy. The NVH levels are close to nothing when compared to the DI! Some more details on the jeep? I think you owe Jose!

thx torqy,ive been waiting for 4 years to join the "brotherhood"~makes us sound like priests of some sort.
there aren't many fans of the bolero in my hometown pune.but i love this car inspite of its manys flaws and eccentricities, i guess those are the qualities a car should have to develop a fan following.i have a few good plans to customize my bolero in the near future and look foward to tips and comments from "brothers" like you.

no its a 2004 sportz(no power windows,xd3p engine,rack and pinion steering,painfully uncomfortable bucket seats).
yes as i admitted earlier,Jose and his excellent car are the main reasons that inspired me to go on and buy this car again(its my third bolero. I sold the last one in 2005 to buy a ford ikon 1.6)...even though i had to pull hard on a couple of springs to buy it.
NVH levels are really peaceful in ths car and the engine sounds great and the top speed is around 115kmph-sad!

I love the XD3P Engine on the Bolero. You cant get better than that. That was my first choice - the problem was I could not find a good one in the used market. So I settled for a New Scorpio instead.

Enjoy your ride mate - this is one chugger you can take ANYWHERE!

Cheers

After driving nearly 4000 Ks with the Green Fliter; I feel that the FE has definitely not reduced; maybe a slight increase. On full power runs on the GQ ; i did get 12 Kmpl with max speed at an indicated 115K; it should be a realistic 120kmph since the wheel dia is more than stock ( according to carbibles).

On my way back from Salem last weekend I did a cautious run @ 80 Kmph ( the rains forced me to I must admit!) the trip meter showed 400 Kms at half tank; 30 litres. This hould equate to over 13 Kmpl. So the FE seems to have improved.

I plan to have the two rear speakers and their humongous enclosures removed; have to look for some compact components during ICE stage 2. This should liberate space for two more bags, not human a**)

the bolero is definitely rocking now.
The Truck has basic ICE.

1. Pioneer HU with USB/Aux port
2. JBL GTO (?) rear oval speakers with crap enclosures
3. JBL front speakers; real tiny ones - real crap
4. JBL BTX 250 powered sub

1,2 and 3 were brought brand new; cost me 12K including fitting.

4 cost me 7.5 K used. But I had the most amazing ICE experience of my life during the install; Suhaimy's Innova blew my brains away; should be one of the best SQ installs around!

Im definitely looking for an upgrade and plan to go exclusively for used gear. What i have in mind for Phase 2.

1. Alpine HU
2. Some good components front/rear with a small amp.

I know there is no point in going for phase 3 on a noisy truck like mine.

I guess the truck will pay you back many times; would love to see your Sportz transform into a beast!
