Hey bro,
congrats. Read the article and quite liked it but was surprised at the price they mentioned. 3,00,000. Infact they mentioned the same price for JD's Lancer w/o install. But their timings were quite off.
Cheers

Thank you all for the lovely comments the credit also goes to my tuner & his mechanics.

however theres still some correction in specs like Digital 6 ignition & cusco LSD, H.T leads theres no digital 6 ignition but only a plain mallory ignition amplifier and it had stock OEM LSD and stock plug wires & timings are off while testing on wet surface they had tough time getting used to clutch & vibration they felt cause they were not realeasing the clutch properly.
