Karthik the baleno is already pretty low. If you lower it any further you cannot drive over speed breakers anymore.

what size pistons were you guys using for the big bore build? someone here said 76mm Honda? What mods are done on the head to get better gains?

We're not doing a big bore.. would be doing a turbocharge on it.

Joel (I guess), I was using 76mm Honda pistons. I had a word with the man who has perfected the art of using these pistons to run big bore baleno's. He mentioned something on the lines of a complicated process of honing to be done and a lot of other parameters to be kept in mind. Since I was short on time and was marshaling the Nandi Hill Climb I could not get into a detailed conversation over it. Once he comes back, I shall find out all the details and keep you posted.

I think Amit was running 78mm pistons when running the 1.8L mill?

I can guess the man who has perfected this art. I dont think 76mm would give you 1750cc which is the big bore for baleno. Just an oversize piston is not a big bore baleno. Yes a lot of parameters should be kept in mind other wise you have n number of issues.

So we will see a turbo baleno soon. Thats nice, give us more details.

You are right, sorry I got confused between big bore and oversize. 75.5mm gives your roughly around 1611cc and 76mm I hear gives you around 164x cc.

There are number of things to keep in mind when taking the big-bore route. If done well, it should work as well as your stock engine, provided you're not running radically high compression and taxing the bottom more than it can take.
Ok, what about the head, stock valves? was the head flowing more for a big-bore? I dont mean porting and polishing now.

I dont think big bore will tax the bottom end. Thats not your worries, there is another fundamental design flaw in the Baleno which is not very conducive to overboring. The bore and stroke of the J18 is different.

I liked all except the 2nd. 5th and last one. Last one would look good on red.
EDIT: I could pick one if i knew the colour of the car.

What is the color of the var you finalized?

I'd say the thumb rule is deeper the Lip for the rim, the better it looks.

I vote 3 > 4 > 1 in that particular order.
