But yes, a lot matters as to how fast you reached that speed, a video would have surely been helpful.

But at the end of the day, your Swift is definitely a FAST CAR!!!!


Thank you for your kind words, you are right, "how fast it gets there" is exactly the point. You are welcome to compare it with your car if you choose to

I ain't got a Swift. A Zen and a Fiesta 1.6S are what adorn my garage.

Which is that penultimate car that your car can keep up with? I am eager to know.

I have owned a stock Zen in 1998, it was nice. I have also owned the 1.6 Ford Ikon. If the Fiesta 1.6S is faster than the Ikon, even then it should be slower than the Swift in question.

Willl you be at the BIC on the 18th / 19th ? That would be the right place to test out the two head to head.

BTW the Swift touches & crosses the 200 kmph mark, it has been done on a test track by the tuner, so I know.




Cheers

Wow, that's pretty amazing, 200kmph from a 1.3L (?) engine is pretty good.

And no, I am not into track racing just as yet, I am busy with my studies. I have some pretty big plans for our cars, but that is when I get a good result that makes my dad happy :P.

When it comes to racing our Zen or Fiesta, its pretty much out of question. My Zen is 1.3 Lakh km old and is BONE-STOCK, but yes, it still does 140 with ease and Fiesta is dad's car and I really can't risk taking it out racing on a circuit.

But yes, when I start earning good money and maintain our cars myself, I WILL get my Zen tweaked for the circuit, I just love this car.

Your build is an inspiration for me.

Wondering what figures a header-ed OHC and a Baleno will do.
Almost same (200 kmph) if tuned well i guess.

New Hella 550's fitted instead of the 1000's as one of the neighborhood kids broken off one light (by accident)...I had the 550's lying with me, so got the transplant done. Will post pics maybe tomorrow.

The office parking basement was where I focussed the lights, the little tweaking I will do once I drive her at night.

:-( unwanted & unforeseen :-(

Here are the 550's on the Swift. Look nice & sleek, though I still would have gone for 1000's albiet the H2 bulbs are not available even with Hella

Here are the pics

Ricky ji somehow they look odd in comparison with your previous choices.

The previous ones looked great...

I could not agree with you more. But as I said these lights were with me, so put them on - whenever I get a fresh pair of Hella 2000's
I may swap them again


Cheers

You should put a set of Light forces on there.

Would that not be an overkill ? for the little car ..here in Delhi NCR one does not come across light force & the prohibitive cost would keep me away any which way...

Little car with a huge heart? Not really you should check out the 140mm Lance. Its about 220 USD if someone carries it down for you.

Bangalore if filled with guys running light forces on all sorts of cars.

Just added another 20 Bhp to the Swift ...ever since the cars by Speedsport have made it a habit of taking the podium, even the sticker seems to add power It is all in the mind they say..
