You will also be prone to damaging your alloys on a pothole at moderate to high speed in 16-17 inchers.
In addition to suspension problems, steering issues will also crop up.

Don't use K&N, i'd rather recommend green.. check it out here (Air Filters - K&N vs Greencotton vs Pipercross).

These are obsecenely high rates for what IMO is not a significant performance upgrade!

if u still need a "cold air intake", you can get it made at much less

a conical filter should be in the 5-6k range. u then need some custom piping on one side to the air intake and then u can enclose the filter in custom canister and have a flexi PVP piping leading to the wheel well or front bumper

but remember - all this makes sense if you can suck in MUCH colder air from outside than in the engine bay ( which is not the case in typical tropical climate )

I have a free flow exhaust from Raj Hingorani that's not yet even opened. SYJ had bought it and it doesn't have a taker so if you're interested do contact me. It costs INR 14,500, and Raj Hingorani is a respected guy - as are his FFEs.

If you're car has run a lot i'd suggest atleast a ecu reset, because it worked wonders on my car. The difference that it brought up on my OHC is astounding ! Even the exhaust note changed a bit, though i dunno why. Right now it's the sweetest thing i've heard !!And the engine runs heavenly smooth.. ...

Dude, read the whole thread. My mods (stage 1) are all done. My OHC front grill was one of the first one to be painted body colored. Check the pics in my garage.

Hi,

I have done a B16A swap in my OHC. As far as your other question goes yes you can install a B18C5 in the OHC as well and it has also been done already.

B18Cs produce upto 200 hp in stock form. Yes, they have been installed on OHCs in India. The first project was done about 3 years ago in Bangalore.
