I think he meant both dampers and springs together. you get Pedders VRD dampers and spring for around 50k.

Research tells me that these shocks are non adjustable and the springs are stock height. How much did the shocks and springs cost?

Yeah looks like it. Is that a stage 2 clutch? How much is the sports tuff series retailing for?

Buy some good tyres also, if its gotta hold.

The clutch is not used, its a new one but its been fitted and then taken off so thats why it probably looks like that.

Bro no offense but I doubt that. Please cross-check with Sanjay and Tabrez, they are by far the best to advise you.

Disclaimer: I have had NO part to play in this build apart from driving down the car from Delhi. Karthik is solely responsible for the choice of equipment and the tuner.

Haven't been able to put up the travelogue yet, as I was busy with exams. Shall be driving the car in a few days to Trivandrum. Shall post a detailed review on it. Heard that the engine rebuild, P&P, intake, exhaust, suspension, clutch & gear ratios is completed. ECU should be fitted as we speak. Cam will come in soon too I think.

Baba, do you think it's a good idea to drive a newly rebuilt engine down to TVM? Running in should be done with varying loads, not a continuous highway run, atleast IMHO.

BTW, good choice of tuner!
