Cool Lancer Diesel

Hi Guys,
I need some help in getting my Lancer Diesel perform better. I contacted Dreams Auto and they told me that K & N Air filter can not be fitted to my car as I have the cylindrical air filter which K & N does not manufacture. He suggested that I fit the Air filter case of a Land cruiser or a Toyota Qualis and then fit the K & N Air filter. I am not confident of this.. It will be great if you can guide me in finding a suitable solution to boost the car power. I am also exploring options of fitting a turbo for my car. Please let me know if that is a good idea.

Thanks

Arvind

never seen any modifications for power on a diesel.

I guess I read somewhere that turbo cannot be fitted on a lancer but you can surely try.

I dunno if this would help but try getting free flow manifolds and mufflers.

I dont think so. though I am not an mastermind in Diesels.

Lancer diesel is supposed to be the most silent diesel in the country. I guess a bit of noise wont harm this guy if he gets the desired performance.

I sure think there are many performance mods possible. Its just that I dont know much about it.

I guess Autopsyche can be a better person to ask this question.

Cool k&n

hey man if you cant get the replacement filter get the k&n universal filter which includes the intake pipe!!! other than that you could get a freeflow but keep your current muffler it will keep the sound under control but will definately increase a little bit!! also the power difference won't be as good but as long as there is considerable change its worht it!! check out if its possible to get a piggy back device like the pete's tuning box for your engine !!! if you find that nothing like it ! so a k&n , a free flow and a piggy back device if possible !! im sure youll be able to pull off the free flow n k&n!! cheers!!

Smile Thanks Guys

I will try the Piggy back and get the universal K & N airfilter and the free flow done.. I contacted the local dealer and he told that the free flow can not be fit to a diesel lancer. I will probably try it out at Bangalore and check it out.. I will probably buy the K&N there.

Thanks once again.... Eddie

Suggestion == Lancer diesel...Keep the car as it is as K & N filters would be the right choice for your car.
You would end compromising on the car's performance. I know very few or none..who have a good idea on Lancer Diesel...So if i was you.....i would take it a little slow on peformance modifications on the Lancer Diesel

Hi Guys,
For now I am still exploring my options on getting the engine performance up. Well I have sent a message to psycho asking him about the possibilities and I will get back to you once I get some solid action plan. I understand that Diesel engines are very touchy about mods. I will post once again after I get some updates...

Ok Arvind, a few points to note.

1. The Lancer is an old IDI diesel. There are no major electronics. Therefore Pete's box or a piggyback are USELESS.

2. There is no turbo, so a free flow will make noise. An Accent CRDi has a turbo, which acts as a natural silencer.

3. A turbo can always be fitted. Psycho will guide you on that.

4. JD Madan's car is running an imported Evo 6 engine, complete kit with intercooler. If you want to give up mileage and spend over 4 lakhs, then it's your call. Also, that's a petrol car.

I hear a figure of 4 lakhs for the Evo upgrade kit. Doesn't include rims, I think. Maybe this cost is excluding customs and duties etc...
