Hey Buddy,

No Offense but a properly done "free flow" should give you at least 8-10% more power depending on your engine health and state of tune.

Hey Buddy,

They are referring to imported second hand Swift GT engines which are 1.3/1.6l 16V DOHC engines. You can get them for approx 60k. You will however have to overhaul them to get the best out of them.

Viper

,
so how much do u think my zen mpfi engine has gained.?????at 8%of 60bhp,has it gained abt 5bhp.
the reason i said its only 1-2 bhp is because ,i was told by someone who is into all this that even though its advertised as a 10-15%gain,in reality it isnt so.
please guide.

Hey Satya,

I cant comment on how much you have gained as I dont know what you have in your car , what the specs(lengths, diameter) of your exhaust system are. assuming you have a standard automech exhaust you should easily get 5 bhp more.

BTW the advertsied BHP of any car is different from what you actually get. Also no two cars are identical even of the same brand. I would suggest you follow some good tuners advice instead of believing anybody as clearly he doesnt know anything from what i gather.

There is no "correct length" as such. Most tuners however tune the exhaust(pipe diameter & lengths) as per their engine mods and power requirements. For eg some for good low wnd power the sizes would be different viz a viz for top end power.

Headers are tuned to variuos lengths to scavenge exhaust gasses from the cylinder and these lenghts can be tuned for a narrow band to allow an engine to rev faster (like when they say the headers kicked in). this RPM range is selected by the tuners to achieve the best power from the vehicle for a given type of driving style. You cannot have the header's working over a very wide band and hence a the terms lowend, midrange, topend etc. that specify the range in which the headers work.

The lengths and the dia of the pipe used varies from car to car and also for the rev range tuned for.
