Hey Sanjay!

Due to a damaged cam-gear I could not take the car for the mentioned test drive to Bangalore. The cam-gear has now been ordered and should be replaced in the car today.

Hopefully this should be the last hurdle before I can fully experience the benefits of the mod.

@ Sivam - Sorry, don't have the pics of the heads grooved.

@ Mpower - Yes, new piston rings were also replaced.

1 Set of Piston Rings INR 2,450.00
1 Timing Belt INR 750.00
1 Head Gasket INR 1,050.00
1 Tensioner Bearing INR 575.00
4 Spark Plugs INR 680.00
1 Camshaft Seal INR 160.00
1 Oil Filter INR 225.00
4 Engine Oil (ltrs.) INR 800.00

Hey guys,

Sorry was a bit busy with some work so was not able to pen down the mysore-bangalore experience that I undertook last saturday.

The car is handling exactly the way predicted. The ease with which it throttles is really amazing. In no time I was touching a 100kmhr and it was still pulling effortlessly

I also drove with the A/C on in Bangalore traffic and as of now I really have no complaints. The car pulls without any problems from traffic red light stops even with the A/C on. Now with the A/C on it handles like without A/C stock(before the grooving).

Frequent shifting is reduced and the average consumption has not changed. I got around 14.5 kmpl full tank to full tank with 300 odd kilometers of city driving and 150 odd kilometers of highways. Assuming around 40% A/C usage.

That's all I have. Any clarifications I shall be glad to pitch in

Default Grooving the Honda City

HI

Has anybody grooved the Honday City? Any opinions?

Does anybody have the contacts of the person who grooves in Mysore?

PS: I did search for the topic but only found some 2007 articles on a Fiat Uno grooving.

Hi Sridhu,

Can you please be a little specific about what you are looking for?
Which model of the Honda city do you own.

Regards.

Hi

Looking to see if what I would gain by grooving a 2004 Honda City. Also to see what are the risks & the possible downsides.

Is your City VTEC or I-dsi.

The Mysore guy has a website up, you can take a look. I concluded that most of the benefit comes from the compression bump and not the groove.
