Nice work done on this....specially the power boost is something to look out for. This car looks bad imo from the rear due to a few reasons....i personally hate big spoilers....the tyres jutting out gives a very shabby look, i guess putting mud flaps to cover the same would give a neater look....and lastly the number plate frame sux....One thing that could change the rear look greatly would be euro rear head lamps, the rear mondeo lamps are very dull...the new mondeo has livelyer ones.I like the alloys...any clue how much they cost?

hey i think its a neat ride...well as far as power is concerned we would only get to know at the next drag..and yes the wheels jutting out is simple..i mean broader tires better grip..better launch..how much boost is it running..has it got an lsd on it??..otherwise the wheel spins must be way out of control...need so more details...carbon fibre spoiler apprecciated...ractive exhausts...always sound sweet...hehe...specs need to be clearer...may be quarter mile timings and also how much boost is it running..which turbo..intercooler? and a lot of other things...do keep da info pouring in..till then happy revvin...cheers...!!

Not much mods on the exterior. A good paint job, nice wheels. The spoiler does look odd, would have been better if it was lower and at a much steeper angle. Anyways, the rear twin exhausts look great. Any more pics??!

Yup.They are OZ Superleggera wheels,and are super-light.Tires cost 6500rs apiece,which brings the total cost to 1.29 lacs exclusive tax.
The spoiler,mufflers,meters etc also cost a bomb.

Apart from that the car is running on 3-4psi boost as per now.But after the head gasket it should be doing anywhere around 8-9psi.Also the car is 45bhp over stock,and after nitrous its 75bhp over stock.
This car is F-A-S-T on road.Its so freaking amazing as far as driveability and engine response is concerned.

Erm...aren't the bottle's angled the wrong way? The rear end should be lower than the valve.

Any positive boost would effectively improve performance of any vehicle... @ 3-4 you would be running the stock fuel curves as it is hardly any boost at all.

However one thing I couldnt understand is what has the head gasket got to do with the boost upgrade to 8-9 PSI. If you are planning to get in a steel head gasket a forewarning DON'T a stock head gasket is the best as in case of any failure the head gasket will go and not the internal's.

what are the current 1/4 mile times on the car?

Rtech: that was a good point on the bottle angles... wish no one is behind the car if anything happens... also do the bottles have a overflow line to the bottom of the car?
