[quote=m4ugr8;2321304]The vRS guy should take his car and drive it straight through a wall . Nothing can match the feeling of defeating a car twice the price with a small car, reminds me of Redline2 where I took the case of a BMW 320D with my second hand honda city LOL !!

I think its time to go forged now and up the boost./QUOTE]




Control yaaaaar control !! Don't give such "dirty" ideas I may just get tempted

First crank it never starts, mostly (80%) of the time 2nd crank it starts. Guess the summer is helping that.

I think it is a software issue, I have been too lazy to go get it sorted. Phil was also out of the workshop for a while. I think it just needs a bit of ECU tweaking.

Once running she runs fine, hence tend to forget there is an issue.

Thanks for sharing the info, do share once it gets sorted.

What boost is she running now and how many kms covered since the transformation. Any out of delhi trips you have done with the car.

The car surely looks hot and vey tempting, hope one day I get to drive it.

I have a Swift ZXi too and may get tempt to do something similar in the near future, till then dreaming about it...

Sorry missed the highlighted part of your querry. Well it has done close to 4000kms. So far no issues. The only short highway run was on the NH8 towards Jaipur, but returned from Pataudi as the traffic was very very slow due to the widening work on the highway.

UPDATE :

Just finished a photoshoot with a popular (let us make that very popular) Auto Magazine.

Venue : Gurgaon, deserted parking lot
Car : Turbocharged Swift
Driven by : Yours Truly

More details later, I am looking forward to getting the copies of those brilliant pictures. Will post them once I have them. They should feature in June or July !! Some stills but some with the car going thru it's paces !! Amazing !!!

How it started :

Phil SMS'd me to ask if I would want to let the Magazine feature my "extreme swift" in the magazine. ( I never thought it was that extreme, that a AutoMag would want to feature it ) I have to send them some pics & specs of the engine.

My answer "obviously"

Sent the pics & a small write up..next day get a call to ask when can they shoot the car, their HO has approved for my car to be featured. So we fixed Thursday, but could not do it for some reason. Re-scheduled for today, & pronto there they were.

So from a non-descript Swift, she went on to become a TC'd one & from that to a celebrity in her own right !! It sure got it's 15 minutes of fame !! LOL

So thanks Phil, your SPEEDSPORT stickers were very prominent ! Not to forget the LIVE TO DRIVE & the TEIN logo on the car !!

Waiting for the pics now....






Cheers

Oh I've seen that column in either Overdrive or Autocar. Honestly the last couple of cars they have featured have been weird and wacky. Yours will change that.

Congrats.

Are the Hella Rallye 1000 series still in production? I am not able to find these in Bangalore for the last 2 years or so! Is it 5K ?

I must say the installation is brilliant. And what power bulbs does it come it - 100W ?

I paid around 6500/- for them & they are originals for sure, you can tell from the illumination. They come with 55W halogens.

A little birdie tells me that Speedsport has tied up with Red Rooster Performance. So what might that mean for the scene in Delhi / NCR ? The BEST JUST GOT BETTER.


With support from the Doyen of Motorsport in India to another Motorsport guy - who knows what the engines are all about !!!!!!!!!

Kudos to Speedsport aka Phil for this HUMUNGOUS step forward. The tuning scene in North India will change & how !!!

Way to go buddy !!!!!!!!!!!

This calls for a FREE TWEAK !!




Cheers

Hey my Swift has finally been featured in the July 2011 AUTOCAR !! The editorial is badly written & the best photographs have not been printed, anyway an article nonetheless.



Cheers
