Have u re-jetted your carb???
If not then do it, itss very beneficial.
For the braking issue why dont u change your front discs to ventilated ones as in the Mpfi esteems and also do a rear disc brake conversion?
It will Solve your braking problem.

Have a thought on the brake mods that i have suggested will work quite well,
and after you have run-in your engine use synthetic oil it will be beneficial.

Ask rohit if he can do the mod job of the brakes i think you will have to change the calipers the brake disc and the pads for the front and for the rear you can shift your front discs to rear and get the caliper kit and all i think this will surely solve your problem.

I have just replaced the discs in March. Rear disc is a tedious thing belv me.
Just had a word with Rohit, engine is fired and will be kept running the whole day. and in the mean while suspension work is going on. After that comes the Dent repairing on the boot , due to stone falling from the bluidging top while renovation.
Next 3-4 Days car should hit the road!

Please dont put a spoiler, especially a GT wing, looks too common. BTW i had recently seen an esteem with Lancer EVO 4 front and skirts, looks hot hot. The EVO 4 spoiler can be a great choice too along with the Kit.

Thanks Pramod, how bot the below ones?

Since the current hood is obstructing the intake, it touches the intake piping, i was thinking of below hood in the pic 2, wont be that loud but on similar lines.

The third pic is of the spoiler i felt like putting, hope it doesnot qualify for the W&W section. and A big No for GT Wings.

The first pic shows the way these gauges will be fixed.

But arent the gauges in a single box. Or do you have single guages? Because, of the U -shape, you may have to carefully asses where to place it in the car.

These can be removes and seprated, what i am having on my mind is, fabricate a fiber casing which will mate with the dash board curves! They would be facing the driver, i mean cross ways. Wont be making then separate like in the pic above, but the placing will be the same

Hey guys, i will be posting an ad for H4 8K Bosch HID(used) and a Set of H3 8K Philips HID(new), which i had bought from Saudi.
Replacing the H4 with Philips Hi-Lo Hid and the H3 were an impulsive buy and not required now.
These will be available after 19th August when i come back to mumbai. Prefer mumbai buyers.
