But this way you suck the floods up. No more floods - problem solved. The citizens of Mumbai will thank you.

On a serious note: How deep is the water level in floods at worst when driving?

lol; the worst was two years ago. QM2 was sailing on Mumbai streets

Jokes apart, bus/truck got stuck, ground floor were submerged IIRC..

Check out a thread by kpzen about a bling Santro. It even had angel lights. You can check the same car on Autocar in an advt.

Hi CPH I really did not know that so much goes into making of an exhaust. Totally got lost reading your detailed post, like some of us here even I am a novice, thanks a ton for sharing this information.

@CPH, thanks for that valuable inputs.

I see that you have a Punto too, do you have any performace mods done on it? it will be great if you share mod details and pics of your car. You can PM me the details or start a new thread to keep this thread to discuss on Vik0728 santro.

Air intake design and exhaust design is rather crucial on an engine. Of course the design of the engine itself is pretty complex.

But the most complex part of engine design is the bean counters that want to have everything built a preferably zero cost.

To calculate an engine design including the exhaust system about 14 million executions are necessary.

The Punto I have got is the original. I am a classic car man.

But I will start a thread about my pocket rockets. I have currently 9 cars. Most of them are off the road because modifications are being done to them, which is major re-working. It seems I can'T live without re-engineering things.

Hey guys I'm really sorry for posting a reply this late!!

CPH, as I had posted earlier I have a Conical K&N performance filter installed on my ride.

I am attaching some snaps of the K&N filter on my ride along with some other interior snaps that I took over the last weekend.

I am thinking about going for a header on my car soon. One thing's for sure, I am not selling this car. Sure's hell will pick up another one soon, but this Sunshine will stay with me forever!!

This filter needs desperatedly cleaning.

Can you give me the filter dimensions please (diameter at each end of cone and length of it)?

And otherwise hold your horses for the moment on further mods.

BTW, I hate to see this ballast in your boot. We need to find a lot of horses to equalise the performance.

Just what UniqueMods stated. I am a purist and a bit cynical when it comes to ICE.

I just think performance/racing.
