I did a 175+ Kmph on a stock Hyundai Accent GLS 1.5 Ltr engine, it maxed out at between 178-180. Am in touch with a couple of guys Viper and TMW for futher modifications whcih can take me even further lol .

If you know of any better one to do the performance upgrade (K&N stuff, Free Flow exhausts, some bodykit work and a good paint job) which will have the value for the buck, please let me know with details. Thanks

I heard from MAS that we get two for Esteem and zen engine and one of M800 & family.

One benefit i see is that i can cruise along in 5th where i had shift to 4th earlier. Also with AC, the pickup is good.
so 5bhp eh?
