Default Modded Logan 1.4: FFE, Green Wind & Ported n Polished Head

Finally, I did it. For months, I was thinking and thinking, whether or not to go for it. And finally got it done from Arush aka Autopsyche.

Had to be apart from my love for eight days! But finally, she is back with me now. It took time longer than expected, because no one had got an FFE made for the Logan yet

Her tone has changed.. but obviously because she has two mouths to chat now! I wanted the lowest of sound, almost similar to the stock. But Arush said this is the minimum we can get. So below 2k rpm, the sound is non-existant. But after that she makes everyone know that she has arrived.

Air intake was done from Performance Zone earlier, just got some adjustment done at Autopsyche. Before the FFE, there was used to be a growl, but now due to obvious reasons it can not be heard.

Can not say how much difference has the head porting and polishing job made, since both this and FFE were done at one go.

The overall difference in performance, although its only been a few days and i haven't got time to really test it, there is a significant increase in pickup in low and mid range. Especially when the ac is on, earlier her knees started to bend the minute that button was pressed, but now she is always ready for the sprint!

Logan looks good with dual exhaust pipes . What was the cost of porting and polish?? Also can we have a video of the exhaust note please?

OT : Debadging (lengthy badges) will complete the look.

The best done Logan I have ever seen. Good to know that people can really love a logan like you do.

De-badging, if you are into it, is certainly in order. A good sleeper, it would be.

And what is that open-ended pipe / turn in the third picture?
