^^ The car would look much better with some side beadings. Otherwise the door looks too exposed/naked!

I like N1s Ikon. Looks very well made and not over the top however heard its more of a show then go. Has 75shots of NOS but still is int as fast as it should be. Ikons and Palios look very good in red, Ford calls it spanish red where as fiat formula red.

Hi,

Its nowhere close to the terminology fast. Like you rightfully said it is all show and no go. It is only 9bhp more than a stock Ikon as claimed by him for the following mods:


High Lift Cam from PIPER – BP270
Head polishing, porting and facing
Free flow 4x2x2 exhaust system from Magnaflow
MSD ignition system
Denso Iridium spark plugs
K&N air filter – EXTREME series
FSE Power boost Valve
Mr. Gasket Open exhausts system

STOCK POWER 91bhp - AFTER MODS POWER 100bhp
BEFORE TOP SPEED 190 kmph AFTER TOP SPEED 200 kmph
BEFORE 0-100 13 seconds AFTER 0-100 11 seconds


You can decide for yourself how good their job is.

Viper

PS- Above info is taken from his own website and figures are without NOS.

stock 0-100 13 secs, and now it hits the same in 11 secs which is almost a 15% improvement over the stock time.
so you're possibly looking at something like 105 bhp.

Shankar's ikon , Nice car, sounds very good, Full Auto Meter Gauges inside, Blue unbody and interior neons, Xenon HIDs in the headlamps and Foglamps (bright as hell) , i don't like the finish on the spoiler, rest all good,

One of my cousin's Ikon looks better than this, but I dont have pics for that car.

Good Job there.. Looks nice & neat, one of the very few good looking ikons i've seen.. !!
But i guess.. the vent on the hood is a fake.. ??

The first antenna works, the seocond does not and is no Longer on the car now, All the works done by AUTO FUSION, Bangalore. And yeah the Hood Vent does not work, its for show.
Some of the most beautiful honda citys I have ever seen in life are owned by my friends, dont know how they manage such low Skirts but they do, will take pics someday and post, by the way the VTEC I am talking about runs on 19 " rims with 30 profile tyres without spacers, you are wondering how, Even I wonder but thats a fact.

The Ikon is looking nice but I dont like the vent too much..
Isnt that bumper off from a sxi with just Skirting added??
But how did you manage to get it one piece??
I would like to do something similar as I like the original design of the sxi bumper

How how how. Stock suspension wont be able to handle that i am so sure. The ride will break your back.

mp421b :
Well the dude does not drive the VTEC like that, when he has to rip he takes out his 1.3Ltr ZEN, Honestly I dont understand the logic of having such rims, I cannot manage such low skirts and 30 profile tyres, but he does,However I did not mean his suspension is stock, All i said that he did not have spacers, i.e, the car has not been raised, its REAL LOW, whatever it be his VTEC looks SEXY and moves very good too.

SRK:
The bumper is not off an Sxi, that car is an Sxi Ikon. and how? its been finished with paste , paint etc, like all other cars.
