120? In the top-speeds thread, some have claimed upto 160 for the Xing! Are you saying top-speed or speed under any conditions?

OT:
Not sure about the good driver part, but I have gone over 160 in my Xing.
Stock Santro's feel mighty unstable above 120, but with slightly wider tyres (as in my case) things are much better.
The only performance-oriented mods under the hood of my car are a K&N conical filter with custom intake and OWS Iridium plugs.
The needle was hovering around the 165 mark... so, even with speedo error, speed was round about 160

Forgot to add that its what I could do in the third gear. Happy to know that it can do 160 or so but I doubt if anyone would do that most of the time they go for a drive.

I have used K&N and Greens filter stock replacement filter in Wagon R & Baleno

I have to say the Green filters better because of thick rubber edges & cotton pores are smaller.

The K&N has thinner edges and bigger pores. Also noticed trails of dusty air on the inner rubber sides after 5000kms driving inspection. That shows the filter dosen't seal well on the edges with the stock air-filter box.

Since a stock car dosen't require too much free flow, I use a thin layer of sponge as a pre-filter.

Unhappy

I'm seeing neutral performance from the stock k&n filter that i fitted on my Maruti 800 carb. model. The fuel efficiency didn't improve too

Sure Greens is not easily available as K&N, but Petes Pete's Performance Products in Cochin is the official dealer in India.

I was not happy with K&N's filteration which is very important for a stock car engine to last long. hence I opted for Greens.

Came across this thread while searching for the review of Pipercross panel filter as replacement for the OEM filter in origibal Airbox for my Palio 1.6.

Looks like I will have to wait till the polling results are out.

I had sent an enquiry to N1 racing at Prabhadevi. They came up with the reply mentioning Pipercross Panel Filter at Rs 3050 / -

Does anybody know how would these perform in Palio 1.6 or do you suggest anything else.

PS - I tried the thread of Palio mod, but could not find anything on Pipercross.

Firebird - Pipercross air induction is the stock replacement filter right? It wont make a big difference IMO. You need a conical one to make any noticeable difference.

Thanks Busa, is it that there is no performance air filter that can be used in the original air box?

Firebird - The stock replacement filters will give you a minor increase in performance buttttttt the conicals will give much better ones. For the price you pay i would certainly pick a conical.
