Binz,

You haven't answered my question yet! How is the clutch? Does it work well in stop-start traffic conditions? And is your BOV a stealth one?

The clutch isn't hard at all,given that it isn't the heavy duty sports tuff one. Easy on the foot and not at all a pain to drive in traffic.

By stealth do you mean install wise or sound wise?
Either ways its not stealth by any standard

@Binz
wont you be needing better brakes to handle the power or has it already been taken care of?

Ah. Just got back home after a very long and eventful tuning session.
Boost is 6psi and the tune is just too damn good.Boost is very very linear, like a very quick NA car. Car will be fine tuned on sunday morning and then I will post the timings here. Car feels like its just rolled out of a factory and this at 83000 kms!!

Pics tomorrow. Promise.

@Offtopic: Is it possible to put Turbo in my Palio 1.2 ? I can spend 50K on the setup if it is possible.

Theoretically, you can! But the engine components should be able to handle the extra load and power. Installing a turbo is not as easy as it looks. There are a lot of other things one has to change to make it 'turbo-ready'. You might have to carry out several modifications. The stock intake setup and exhaust setup may not be good enough. You might have to widen the intake and exhaust valves, etc.

I'm not sure if a turbo would be compatible with the 1.2 motor of the Palio.

Get in touch with Viper or Binz. They will give you all the information you need!

50K should be a bit too less. Jap engines are relatively safe to playwith.
take care...

83K is the mileage, when this customization has been done, quite a lot. By the by, did you check the engine block especially for those inlets which are around cyclinders that allow coolant to pass through, generally there are 2 for each cyclinder. At this mileage, one believes that some of them get some sort of decomposition , as a result narrowing down of these inlets thus , inadvertingly blocking coolant passage and there-fore heating. Check for this blockage on head gasket , too.

Well, best of luck, that all goes well. But, the baleno engine has still 2 valves per cyclinder-- correct me if i am wrong here-- , should have been better if it had been 4 valves per cyclinder.

Anything can be turbocharged. You dont have to touch the valves or anything for a basic turbo setup. You just have to size your turbo to the car.

Baleno is a 16 valver.
