Total cost: 32k.

Here is a snap of the wheel. Actual pix coming after the break.
I think it's the upsize that's causing the harsh ride. Iam running A-drives in similair spec and the ride has become bumpy and harsh. what is the air pressure you maintain ? Nitrogen ?

Hey guys.. need some help on performance mods for my swift vxi (1.3).
I currently have a bmg conical air filter, aluminium cold air pipe, IX iridium plugs and nismo end can installed in my car. i have got huge performance gains from it and it shows a lot in mid and top end responsiveness. What further mods do you think should I carry out? I currently have a budget of 25k.
Is throttle body enlargement a good option? if yes, where can i get it done in mumbai?

Swift GTi kits are readily available nowadays. The new model is the Hikari Kit.
Are you referring to this one?(See pic)



Am also planning to install them in the coming months. It's around 18k here.

Guys
I own a Swift VXI and wanted to know if i can install a multi function display of Dzire (mounted on the dash) and any idea about the cost?

Also do i have any options to have a customized multi function display?

things that i have in my mind are (clock, temp sensor, FE indicator etc) and the optional things that most of the newer cars have on offer.

Friends, has anyone used RaceDynamics with Swift Petrol? I would like to know the performance improvement/fuel efficiency/OBD II scan tool compatibility.

Thank you.

Ok after nearly two years i am planning to sell my Remus endcan and look for something new

Magnaflow seems like a good choice.

But any idea how much i could sell the Remus for? I think it was around 16 or 17k when i bought it.

Anyone using magnaflow in here?

I have recently installed a Pipercross Air Filter with Cold Air Intake pipe. I must say, it has made a world of difference in the pick up of the car. I have also switched to NGK Iridium Spark Plugs. Both the installs were done at Automech. I was also interested in changing the cables but the Automech guys said they were not sure whether aftermarket cables can be installed in the car.

Has anyone installed after market cables on the swift. Also does it help.
I am keen on switching to MSD cables.

Cool Dead pedal for my swifty and my long legs.

I was planning to get a dead pedal for my swift. The OEM ones sold my suzuki sports is a bomb. I was planning to get it customised. Is some one using a dead pedal like the one attached here.
What should the dimensions be of this dead pedal, keeping in ming that the gap between the clutch is very little on the swift.
Awaiting the reponse from the gurus, to enable me to get this design going.

NO don't think it can be done because even i asked for my car but i was told that swift has electronic ignition instead of wired distributor ignition.
