The teambhp policies are very straight, if you are associated with someone(read who does the job) declare it. I got my car painted and i know many others are getting theirs painted too. Its just that they want to look at options before investing money. Showing what you have done if just teasing people . Also tell them how far they are from their dreams (moolah wise)


OT this was my 500th post so thought to spread some gyan :-)

lets say, besides the ICE and alloys, the entire car is custom made, hand-made job basically. including the spoiler

Nicely done Regnex! You're Lancer looks typical 'American Street Racer' types!

Do get some performance oriented modifications quickly!

The Interiors & exteriors are perfect. Great job & you are a lucky guy.

Are you really planning for some more performance mod's ?

I mean how much difference have the current performance mod's made ?

Don't mind but from the front it looks more like an Accent or a Sonata. Front could have been a little better. But overall a stupendous job. Kudos!

So i'm back again and i think its finally time i posted the step-by-step activities involved in the making of the 'Fire Trail' and the full breakup

my knowledge on cars is 7 on a scale of 1-10 so if i typed something wrong, please feel free to correct me.


In the Beginning:
As my earlier post suggests, i had given the car to a god friend of mine, Oliver who has a very popular car paint shop in goa. due to work overload, unavailability of resources and shortage of manpower he wasn't able to kick-off immediately . the car was lying in his garage for a month untouched. meanwhile i was looking over the net and stumbled against a dude from mumbai on orkut who does great ICE setups, was impressed and contacted him. He has a business named 'Sound Factor' and inquired about the various ways i could modify my car. one thing led to another and i finally decided that i would want to get my car modified in mumbai (i live in goa).

we started on the initial design for the car, a 3d model on how the car will look. attaching a few pictures

In about ten days we finalized on the 3D design, discussed the costing and decided to make arrangement for the car pickup from Goa, I had to ask for an id proof, so that my family and friend in Goa would identify each other during the pickup. Finally on November 9th 2009 yours truly and his brother came down to Goa, met my family and friend, inspected the car and took off towards Mumbai later that day. The project was on its way towards its beginning. Mind you that during all this process, we have never met each other in person not even once until the car was completely pimped. The very first time I contacted him was on orkut after I was interested in an ICE setup and our communications thereafter were daily via chat, sms and mobile.

The first task was to take care of the ride and handling followed by the engine work. As I had purchased the car three months before, I didn’t carry out any activities on the engine work (pure negligence). When checked, it was observed that there was an oil leakage and probably an oil seal was the culprit. Further to it the timing belt was replaced and it was a good thing we did it as it too was soaked with engine oil. I can imagine what risk I took by driving the car without checking it when bought in the first place. The front discs were turned for a 1mm cut on lathe machine as the surface was rough. The rear pads, oil seals, tensioner Pulley, engine foundation was replaced and also installed a new gasket. The engine decarbonized and oil was changed to fully synthetic Mobil 0w40. The Brake boosters checked for any leakage and were found fine.

In one of the pictures you can actually see the oil spill off the running engine. There was a huge crack on the OEM silencer at the time I bought the car and was sounding as if it was FFE’d right from the beginning LOL, you will be amazed to see the size of the crack.
Once all that was done, next step was to get the FFE done. Amazingly it took just a day as opposed to a week as I was told last by someone anonymously. The results were amazing! Dual tip exhaust just looked mind-blowing and the sound as I was told was very deep at low rpm, CAI has a long intake pipe with a K&N filter. The entire intake-pipe is fitted without any support. I’m told that during rains I need to remove the filter and switch to stock, wish there was a workaround to it.

The guys had a bit of an incident during first test after installing the FFE and resetting the ECM, where the car just halted dead on a Mumbai highway. When they checked they found that some oil leakage and the 3rd plug was not getting enough current flow, when opened they saw it was drenched in oil, there was a small leak on the tappet head which previously wasn’t inspected. It was opened and noticed that the oil-seal was good and healthy but the alignment was out, after cleaning and resetting everything on site things were fine and the car vroomed back to normal.
Engine vibrations has reduced drastically as compared to before, maybe because of the smooth run with the synthetic oil and new engine mounts. The stock Clutch at the time was functioning fine after minor adjustments. Will change it after driving another 10k km more or in case of weakened operations, whichever comes first.

Next stop: Body work
