The haltec ECU and the software are very nice interesting. I was playing around with it last night and the flexibility it offers is great. Awesome choice Ricky sir.

Car was fired up tonight, I just came back from Speedsport so giving you live update. As of now Phil is still at the workshop fine tuning the car, expect a phone call tomorrow

Initial impression was good, We did not go full throttle or full boost as things were still being set.

WOW !! Thanks for the update Manan.. Now I know why Phil has not been answering the phone. Setting up my car's ECU, nice to know that. So how did she sound & run ?

Seems like Sanyam & you are more in touch with what's going on with my car than I am !!! LOL

Maybe Phil wanted to surprise me.

Anytime, sanyam and me are always into such projects and this was truly one of the best builds I have come across. Moreover I need a empty parking slot at speedsport you know why

Can't wait to see this perform at redline2.

Finally got a one liner email from Phil... seems like he got up from sleep answered the mail with a one liner & went off to sleep again.

Can't blame him if he is tuning the car upto 2 in the morning - he needs the rest.

As for the empty slot !! he he my Pajero will occupy that soon. Swift out Pajero in, but that is just routine stuff, no sweat.

Please post your impressions of the power & the suspension if you can




Thanks & Cheerio !!!

Like I said, we just went out on a small try to check everything is ok, no squeaks or funny noises anywhere. Cant comment really on the suspension or the power as nothing was final then, Phil told me lot of tunning is still left.

Heavy duty work comes when you least expect it. So I have been tied down real bad. No complaints though.

Hence I have yet to see & drive & hear my Swifty

Shall post impressions once I do.

UNLESS Phil takes it for REDLINE2 & wins a couple of trophies !! LOL




Cheerio

Thinking of giving the car a coat of paint (just the exterior) So my Lancer's Bright Red or Hanumanji's Orange ?? Either which way I think I want Graphite grey for the alloys with the chrome lip.

Sounds like a "delicious" combo. (Still awaiting the estimate)

Any views guys ??

Its not, all dupot metallic shades cost the same per liter, this one is from the Lambo catalouge and if you give them the right color name they will find the right code and mix it up for you.

Appreciate what you are saying. But I do not want a Metallic color. The mods have taken up a lot already. I prefer flat paints, as they are easier to touch up in case it is needed.

Well that is surely my car if it carried a HR 26 regn., but that would be Phil driving it. There are not many Turbo Swifts I know of, so in probability that was my car. Nice to know you liked the sound of it.






Cheers

FINALLY drove my Swift !!!! My my it is another animal altogther. Wolf in a lamb's clothing is what I would call it.

Start her up & she shows no signs of being anything than a STOCK Swift. That is the best part. The exhaust is like it were stock.

Once you drive her like a normal Swift. LOL You are in for the surprise of your life. 1st gear...accelerate normally..wheel spin & whooooshhh, 2nd gear accelerate "normally" & wheel spin & a whooshhhh, third gear same thing by that time you are in the 140+ territory.

I am loving it !! One of the BEST Birthday presents anyone got - E V E R

The drive was limited as Phil is having a Ball with the car right now. I shall get it day after. There were certain scrapes & things which need to be looked into.

I am impressed with Phil's capability & the way she drives.

Bye bye Linea T-jet welcome Turbo Swift !! Can't get enough of it !

Will post pictures & hopefully videos soon.

I am told the top it managed was close to 230 kmph !!!!! G-Tech of course..the speedo ran out at 200 kmph. Now that is obscene !! LOL





Shhhh
