Talking Turbocharged OHC

today's meet was in honour of kutlee and his turbo charged OHC.
was pretty short notice, and we had a lot of dropouts.
but still fun as always.
nikki, kutlee, myself and ashvin were there.
did a few laps, ogled at Kutlee's turbo set up for sometime, then came home.
original plan was to make sure zak got on the plane allright, but I got there too late.

I think ashvin and nikkibike made sure the mad mullah was deported to the middle east.

highlight of the meet for me was injuring my neck while sitting in kutlee's car while he floored it. the acceleration is mindboggling. without even driving it, i could see and feel the torque steer on this car.

its my first time in a turboed petrol car, and my only frame of reference are the diesels I've been driving. this car felt like it would thrash the verna CRDI in a straight line.

What he had in this car(I think)

Greddy turbo, intercooler, turbo timer, tacho and shift light.
ractive air intake
emanage
automech exhaust


getting the details out of this guy is difficult. if it was me who had installed all this stuff in one of my cars, I'd be making more noise than the OHC's blowoff valve and the exhaust put together.
dont be shy kutlee! start a thread!

in true tuner tradition, his car is almost completely stock looking from the outside.

@kutlee- your car is brilliant, but....I'm staying with diesel buddy!
BTW, did you see me pass you at aluva? I swear I was'nt racing!

@ASHVIN- thanks for co ordinating.

@ people who missed it.....

I just couldn't join the guys as I had to make some unexpected arrangements at the airport for my grandmom. Once, I was inside the terminal, the buggers didn't allow me to come out for a peek! (But I think that's the way it should be).

Nice to see that you guys had a blast yesterday.

Thanks to all the efforts from everybody, I boarded a flight on time (a FIRST in my life??)!!!!!

Drat! missed this one! Guys, just a suggestion, when u plan meets on such short notice, pls try to make it somewhere in the city. Driving for 45 mins in this damn traffic is maddening. And even if we can somehow come at the last minute, the meet would be over by the time we get there!!

yeserdays meet was at the airport because I had suggested that we see off zak! even I hate the drive through rush hour traffic.
I think karting meets can be held past 2100hrs till late.

and nomally our meets are held in the city.

lets hold the meet next saturday i.e the 24th may
and lets hold it after 9.00 PM so that we dont have to contend with rush hour traffic.
this will also give us time to inform the new members

To all cochin BHPians who have been too shy to attend so far..guys, what are you waiting for?
put your name down on the list and PM me with your numbers so that I can contact you in case of last minute changes in plans

to the regulars, please PM and inform everyone. dont want anyone to miss out this time.

@basilmabraham
hopefully, the karting venue will become permanent. at the moment there are no plans of it shutting down.
just keep a close watch on this thread.
we kart atleast once a month, so will probably see you next month.
