Also with the free flow mod, etc, will the catalytic convertor be removed? If so, will it affect the PUC? Will the readings go haywire and then the PUC guy will tamper with my car tuning to get his readings right and then my performance will go haywire???!!!
you can use higher octane petrol. though you wont find any difference. if at all you might find it a bit smoother.

the cat-con is removed with the free flow. it shouldnt affect your puc. there are enough cars on tbhp without a cat con that have passed puc.

Tejas, start with a Cold Air Intake from Green/K&N. Get a FFE with custom headers in 4x2x1 tuned for low and mid performance. Get a big mid-muffler for sound control and tune your end can.

Else, get a resonator (expansion chamber) in place of mid-muffler - for more torque but prepare for a loud exhaust.

You can continue using regular fuel since these mods do not require it. But I always feel that the car runs smoother with higher Octane.

Your Cat Con will have to go when you get an FFE to get the restrictions out of your way. The PUC readings will not be affected, my OHC's pollution readings are lesser than normal cars.

With the OHC meet coming up next Saturday, i now quite keen to get this work done before that.
I just got a brand new set of HL assemblies, boy AM I IMPRESSED with the way my 100/90 Philips Rally perform! Splendid light and throw.
Avoid projectors, most people complain of the intensity of light going down, and the OHC does not have a very impressive HL performance anyway.
To add to this, the projectors will be retro-fitted, with custom jobs, you never know what you land up with.

Oh and 50 profile is correct for 205 size tyres in 15". Guess you got that right already

Update:

Free flow exhaust with custom headers fitted. Used a quiet system, didn't want the loud exhaust note and be harassed by cops.

The throttle body enlargement being done as i type...

Next up conical filter...

Then carbon clean, spark plug checks, etc.

Next step...ECU.

Hey Tejas,

How much did all this cost [can yuo please provide a break up], and where did you get it done from?

I've heard some ridiculous prices being bandied around [not on Team BHP] for an FFE with Custom Headers.


Regards,
Shekhar

Tejas, I want PM too

I was surprised and very happy to see that you have started getting work done so quick!

Post pictures of the headers and pipes and give the details of the FFE, porting polishing etc.

there is a separate thread on FFE prices - i think its called "how much did u pay for your ffe"

search over there. typically for OHC - 10-12k including headers



Tejas:
there was thread on CAI - how effective is it ? - you may want to check that before going for conical-CAI combo..

i think a nice intake extension of the stock filter box with a stock replacement K&N itself would suffice and would save you 3-4k

Shekhar, i got a good and honest price. I'll post all breakups once the entire project is finished. We can discuss during the OHC meet this saturday.

I had a lot of discussions with my modifier and other people who have used both filter options before i decided on my option. However, i will go through the thread as you suggested. Thanks.


OT: another funny thing that i have come across while searching threads and making inquiries is that when you talk to a bombay or bangalore based tuner, once you go for a ffe, it generally is taken for granted that headers would be custom and included in the quote. But when i had discussions with the delhi side based guys, it's always mentioned freeflow and headers extra. Any reasons?

No no.. what i meant is that the total quote remains the same if added up... bombay guys just quote together and look at you weirdly if you ask "is the headers included?"
Delhi side guys will always say so much for FFe and so much for headers...

I just wonder kyon?

Anyways, let's not drag this OT more and concentrate on my car...

Any OHC owner who has been able to get rid of the annoying squeak of the door panels please tell me how.

Thanks for the PM!

I don't know if it's a Delhi thing or not but headers are sometimes mentioned separate since a free flow could also mean just removing the cat con and/or getting bigger diameter mid pipes. And so has this been discussed on the forum as an option as well, if someone does not want to change headers. Guess it's just added to make sure you get the full thing.

IMHO - Tuning scene in Bombay and down south is hotter than Delhi, so the full opinion/option is given in parts

What squeaks are you talking about? Elaborate please.

Edit: I'm sorry I mentioned porting polishing in my last post. I meant throttle body enlargement.

Dude,

A friend of mine in bombay also considers an FFE and Headers as separate and thats where i got the "ridiculous prices being bandied around".

In his defence though he's got a Suzuki GSX 1000, so maybe thats why the high price.

It's an annoying sound of plastic rubbing against plastic and metal. It seems as if the front door panel is loose and rubbing against the side of the dash. I say seems, cause i cannot exactly localize the sound nor can i find loose parts. But this happens after speeds of 40kmph and if the car goes over a bad patch of road.
