Smile Me & my new Esteem

Hi all,

I'm a beginner in this stuff, I have got a 2nd hand esteem 98 carb eng for fun,

I bought this considering that i would have more options to modify the engine...

There is some noise when i increase the throttle, it's a beat, not sure what this noise is.... but does not seem to be from the engine,

I'm interested to rev this car, engine, may be the air filter, manifolds & exhaust, suspension & tyres etc...
& a good paint job & interiors, this is what i'm looking at.....

If you can give me some ideas...that would be just fantastic....

Rgds
Bruce

welcome to the forum bruce..I'm no mod guy..but I too have a 1999 Esteem LX..one suggestion - use Speed 93(Bharat Petroleum) fuel..the car will perform better..
Once again,welcome and enjoy your stay.
Cheers,

hey bruce.
primarily for the performance mods,go in for the universal k&n air filter and irridium spark plugs if possible. should come upto 9k max and get a free flow... this should satisfy your power quench for a few days.....

Hey bruce welcome to the family and have a great stay. You may think of some of the things that come in the new esteem and decide if you want it done by the Dealer. Some of them offer such changes as well.
