What are flared arches?

Is it possible to convert an OHC to AWD?

For the right amount of money, yes

But I think this would be the first OHC to have done this. Jitu will have to be a very rich brave man to try this.

Wow that's awesome man! Amazing work Jithu. I am just curious to know, how is the daily drive experience of the car? Excessive wheelspins are there?
Regards,
TG.

Wow now thats quite something. I am no technical expert but I know that taking out 350 Bhp from a 4 cylinder engine is quite a feat,
I have a question exactly how much portection did you provide the engine since it will be quite explosive while spilling out 350 bhp,
and have you tested this beast on open roads??
If so then how stable is this car?

Default Just a suggestion.

1)Loose the horn and put in something better( Louder).
Train Horn Videos! The Most Hilarious HornBlasters Videos Made! - HornBlasters.com

2)Change the size of the pulley that is attached to the shaft of the powersteering pump such that it spins slower at the given engine rpm. In other words increase the diameter of the pulley on the pump. I think your stock pump cannot take the higher rpm's the engine is likely to be driven at.

3)Three point seat belts, front and side air bags for all occupants and a suicide note would fit the bill.

Enjoy your fruit of desire, perseverence and presipiration responsibily.

Hey great job on the car. I know how difficult it is to build something like that. But hard work always pays off.

Do you have the brakes to slow that thing down? Get rear disks with a brake bias. It'll give u all the more confidence to drive that beast.

Dear Jitu,I remember you were doing something to your Honda city last year 2008 Nov ,when i was working with Sahil International (JBL Multimedia),and i met the members of Team BHP. Im really glad to say your probably the only owner of the fastest HOnda city on the road.I would love to take a drive in it though only till 5000 rpm,lol .A few days back i drove an A R moto sport Lancer which was also really wild and only after 3.5 rpm did she start to behave fast with turbo spooling in.i could actually feel the g-forces,but the thrill was amazing."With great power comes greater responsibility" you can change your engine but not your life,drive safe.

ps-by any chance if you ever want to modify a petrol contessa do let me know,I own 2.so i can spare you one.lol
