Oh, just realised, I have been caught (pic) feeling up backside of Nitrous Ji's , mistress lol. Sorry saar, was tempted.

Sathee, the giant ECU will come very soon after I get rid of all the m-seals from my engine bay, get new car seat covers ( a rat has made a hole in one of the seats grr, get the bonnet painted, replace broken tail lamp, custom heat shield for headersmany more...

The black corsa with the hood up is Arjun's corsa with automech FFE, magnaflow end can, NGK plug wires, Pipercross filter.
I have never seen a corsa in such a pristine condition. Amazing power when he floors her ! Arjun, someday I will make my corsa worthy of parking by yours . Is Barath on team-bhp too? whats his handle?

@Vikram. We talked cars ( mods ) for a long time , I personally got some tips from the previous owner of the mistress ( arjun ), I am glad I met him. Thank you for your vaulable feeds, whats your handle? ICE was discussed, wheels, ECR , safe driving, performance mods . Sometime was also spent on trying to get the D-BHPIAN to spill out more information about the mods on his car (but he would rather have a one-on-one with Arjun in the mistress). I was there for a couple of hours only (4:30-6:30). My time was up and had to rush back home. Some hi-rev driving by myself and arjun(fanta) on the way back. Proud suzuki and Hyundai owners, I am glad you will have some opel competition too ( arjun's corsa) lol

I am surprised! I thought the meet will continue in the Bella Ciao over dinner, and I was missing it by having to leave a bit early. What time did you guys wind up?

Guys, I feel so bad that I missed this get together :(. I would be glad if some one can put the handles (Err names) of the TBHPIans next to the photos. I can recognize Gansan and Parveen (Mi10).

it's the usual sterotype move of vijay. movie has some comedy and romance and then comes the multiple villains with their horrible hair style and looks and vijay starts his punch dialogues and his fights until the movie ends. By the time the climax is thru so are we, drained completly unable to even curse. lol.

I also picked up burgers, sandwiches from ascendas before hitting ecr. Getting into ascendas is so complicated, considering the amount of money being spent in the food court, the treatment could be better.

Oh, I missed a Meet - A petrolhead meet - OMG

So, coming back to the classical question - What did you guys do at the meet?

Nitrous, why not organrise a better meet or a drive to some exotic location?

@Ikonneer: Yup, I'd agree that Ascendas su*ks big time. They treat one like *hit especially if you are from outside!

And no more late entries too I believe.

Looks like I missed a nice meet. I had the chance to take a big beast on a day trip to Bangalore and I couldn't resist. I'll make the next meet hopefully.

vdiatech: Have you gone back to stock headers now on the Corsa?

Messing with the AC PIPES , every 2 days to nudge them a bit, away from headers by a few mm. I use a crowbar for the same. After 2 days, the pipes come back to the original position to rest on the headers.

I compared my headers with Arjun's automech headers at the meet. As i Guessed, there is a lot of gap inbetween the pipes, hence the mis-fit.
Also, I got it confirmed that I got a standard centre section, when infact, what i wanted was an expansion chamber ! Anyways, I have put it behind me now . I am using my old S/S muffler, OEM centre section ( which was already on the car) and FF headers, nudging the AC pipes every 2 days. So the crowbar is a part of my tool kit, until I get new headers lol.
