A little off-topic, How did you manage to get the GTI body kit fitted onto a type 2 swift? i have heard the bolt patterns dont match.

As for dual piping, you need to get a custom made or one you can ask the velding guy to make you a V pattern pipe so that you can make both the exhust working. But that might cause some drop in performance.

My friend in calcutta swapped his 1.3 litre engine and got the 1.6 ltr 125 bhp engine and got it turbocharged with a sports clutch.
last time i.e a week back when i spoke to him he told me that his car was close to 170 bhp.
thats some major power to weight ratio going there.

maybe one of u guys shud try that.
He also put a partial roll cage on the inside so that the chassis does not bend on the power.

There will be a power loss when you will fit a dual exhaust in the 1.3L
The exhaust guy had also told me that I would be having a power loss in my car where I have a 1.6L engine

yes I have swapped mine for a bigger one. Would start a thread soon after work is completed on it.
You could get us any detail about that project as it would be great to know as to what he has done. Just wanted to know mainly as to how is the feel in the Swift with so much power and how does it handle

Hey guys.
I had a small(okay maybe not small :P ) query.
I am gonna work on my swift when i go back to india this time.
I am thinking of removing it's cat back (this will reduce the back-pressure) there by improving performance.
Now will this lead to smoke ( the gray smog types ) coming out of my exhaust ? Also will this increase any noise and make my exhaust notes better ?
I plan to hammer a pipe through the cat bak so it is still physically present but of course does not perform it's role.
I am also getting a free flow performance muffler for the car which i will put once i remove the cat bak.
Will this entire setup lead to better sound and exhaust notes or will a change of headers and larger diameter pipes(which will in turn make it a complete free flow system) be required ?
Thanks in advance.
