the head gasket was called from England by Karan who owns K S MOTORSPORTS and is made by copper to reduce heat and the compression ratio is down by 9:1
The boost is increased to 8-9 psi now.

You can see the site www.defi-shop.com and check the bf2 gauges they are the worlds best and cost 95000 for a set of 6 gauges and a controller

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.
Yes it was.Though not anymore.Its running on 9-10psi after the head gasket job now.

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?
Not yet tested.

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?
Those are huge Red Bull cans with NOS decals.Additional energy to the driver as well as the car.
They're positioned the right way.Just a little tilted towards the front.It looks straight in the pic.

hey guys,
defi is the most overrated gauges and 95k is way toooo much the set is 65k.
mondeo comes with a STEEL gasket which is better than COPPER and can handle 12psi as it is

the TCS can be modified by Upgrading the ECU ..Motec is one brand which has built in traction and launch capability ..

if your going off road or driving under poor road conditions along with your AWD ..it is not required for daily running ...

Does the spoiler really provide more grip and stability on these cars. Well in F1 cars and touring cars, or supercars they do but on indian ones???

at speeds in the excess of 180k am sure it'll contribute to the aerodynamic downforce of the car ...below such speeds its just an expensive ornament ...

carbon fibre body parts are very costly and no dbout the spoiler compliments the mondeo ..i have seen a similar Spoiler (Jackson Racing) on a Modded RSX ...

so they're more show than purpose. So it wouldn't matter even if u have a CF part or not. I'm not saying its useless, but talking abt efficiency.
