What's the point of spending all those greens if I have to stay off boost ? But I do drive off boost in traffic most of the time. I think have a chat with you know who & maybe find a solution to the high fuel consumption..afterall we are like this only



cheers & thanks mate

Superb performance and good VFM too.
Check it out: Hawk Performance Brake Pads

Tried contacting them, the website does not seem to respond too well. Would you know what kind of price would they run at ? Was considering Mintex, Tarox & now as per your suggestion Hawk. How would they compare against each other ?

Thanks

Pramod

I checked with Phil on that. They cost quite a lot & when uprated disc pads can suffice why spend more ? I am anyway broke by now !!

Finally got a call back. Have been suggested Hawk HPS (High Performance Street). Wanted to know if these are good enough, compared to Mintex. There is a large price differential between the two.

Tarox is out of the reckoning as they do not have pads for the Swift.

Any knowledgeable input is welcome.



Cheers

Sirji,

What about these (just the rotors)

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...ml#post1266729 (Some stuff for my Swift VDi just arrived !)

& something to complement it like Hawks / EBC

The rotors can always be added later if the brake pads do not suffice !

Thanks for the suggestion though !








Cheers

BIG TIME starting trouble in the mornings. The battery is in top notch condition. I suspect the plug connections or maybe the plugs themselves.

Need to have it checked. It used to be a 1/2 self start car. Wonder what happened.

Any inputs ?






Cheers

Could be anything.From a simple thing like bad plugs to a full blown piggyback issue.Can only be ascertained by the tuner himself.So when's the sleepover party at your house.Coz thats the only way Phil can check it in the morning. :P

I doubt very much that is a piggyback issue, coz once it starts it runs perfectly. C'mon don't give me nightmares ! As for the sleepover party - that would not be required, as this behaviour surfaces even during the afternoon.

I certainly hope so. Will need to have Phil take a good look at it. It is the most embarrasing thing, when your car does not start up in 10 - 15 cranks.

pranav - isn't that a procedure to crank in a carb engine incase of an overflow?

Can the FPR be at fault? or the Fuel pump?
