Default Indica mod?

Hi people,
Just wanted to know anyone modded an indica for performance
I know its a stricktly value for money car, but after 40000+ kms i could do with more power, provided it does not hurt reliability and engine life. FE is not a concern at all.

Tie a rocket to the back. It's the only thing that will help. I have an Indigo so I know...

i would suggest u to save the cash and no do anything to it. most of the indicas in my group and there are about 10 of them dont seem to last in one piece after 2 years. mods not advisable

Its a diesel, and i guess even if 5HP more is possible, it should be good. Most probably i will go for a CRDi by this year end, and will keep the indica for experiments

since its diesel best is to turbo it!!

Oops...sorry my bad. Therewas talk about an intercooler before it was launched and somehow it was stuck in my head.

Redarding the piston, just buy the Indigo piston from a TATA dealership. TATA engineers have done all the homework for you.
You just have to figure out how to lower the compression.
