Pic 3 - Battery relocated to the boot.
Pic 4 - Yes those are 17 inch wheels. 205 / 40 / R17 Dunlop P 9000 tyres.
Pic 5 - Command Centre with necessary gauges. From left to right - Wdie band AFR, Exhaust Gas temperature, Fuel pressure (Electronic, so no fuel comes into passenger compartment), Boost gauge - to be replaced by oil pressure. SAFC piggy back computer (with the blue screed) in front of the gear lever.
Pic 6 - Power plant - details of which I have already posted before.

Mods could you please post the thumbnails for the pictures instead of the links. Thanx.

Thanx guys,

Ok the mivec engine in my car is the 1600 CC 16 valve DOHC 4 cylinder putting out stock power of 175 bhp. 0-100 comes up in 6.8 secs. RPM is redlined at 8300 rpm. Basically cams have 2 profiles. Higher lift of valves is done by the second profile after 6400 rpm.

Gearbox is equipped with LSD which greatly reduces understeer and cornering is great fun.

I get about 12 km per litre if I drive decently. driveability is excellent. You can cruise at 60 km on 5th gear with the tach at 2000 rpm. no jerking or knocking from the engine.

Brakes are excellent. You have to upgrade to minimum 15 inch rims cause the disc brakes and callipers will not fit on any thing lesser. Top speed is in excess of 250 kmph but has been limited to 180 electronically.

By the way, can this topic along with the pics be started as a seperate post ?

Cheers.
