well a good porting & polishing job courtesy our in-house pyscho and say a conical filter, you existing free flow and a tune up should give you that mild kick that you need.
if you were yet using the carb version, i would maybe suggest a swap to a baleno engine, even in stock form the car would be so much faster.

hey buddy..ive done esteem's myself..it is a superb car if your lookin for street speed..well the basic mods should bring a noticable change..just drop in a 4" conical filter and a 4x2x1 header (which you already have) upgrade the plugs,ignition wires,msd blaster coil 2,the esteem has a flat spot in the 4th and 5th gear..after such high speeds it tends to just die out in the 4th and 5th..you could use an after market fuel pressure regulator(FSE),high lift camshaft's and a head facing,porting polishing job should get you a beautiful fast ride,also make sure you get strut braces designed for the car..2 for the front upper and lower and one for the back,this gives amazing stability to the car and at high speeds there's very minimum body roll and flex once you have all this sorted you should have a more than fast street car..if you do need any other info please feel free to pm me..cheers..happy revvin...!

Forgive me for buzzing in on someone else's thread but Is it really possible to have a baleno engine fitted in Esteem ? How much would it cost in New Delhi if anyone's aware of it ? I would love to have it done if at all possible !!!

simple upgrade for a carb esteem would be a 16v head from the mpfi esteem. you could run the 16v head with a carb , you'd need to fabricate the intake manifold for the carb to fit on the 16v head.
Alternatively if one has the $$ and also has access to someone who knows his sensors+wiring+ECM then you can convert the carb to EFI and run it - this EFI conversion would not really be an easy job though.
For some more $$ a DOHC head from a Swift GTi would be very cool thing to have!
