If someone has noted,

There is a 2 bhp increase in 2 of the Maruti's cars.

1. WagonR from 62 to 64
2. Alto Lx(i) from 45 to 47

I have both these engines, namely the F8D and F10D, Can I get this increase?

For some time WagonR was stated as 64bhp while Alto Vxi was 62bhp. Maruti wants to give more power to a Wagon than to a car?

Or Has Maruti started using the same measuring instruments that hyundai uses?

Anyways the main point is what did they change?


PS:.. we are not talking about PS here its all bhp.

yup maybe with better and higher octane ratings in fuel available, the co might have maybe upped the comp n played on ECU, very much possibel, ask the dealers and get the info if doable with ur car.

ECU... no... I can't change that!....

And yeah .. which maruti dealer do i ask?...

1. The showroom where, the guy said.. M800Dx is 54bhp!!!!
2. The Workshop where, the guy said, will have to open deep into the engine for fitting the RPM meter...!!!!!! (its all electronic)
3. The one who said... Alto 1.1 has the same engine as Zen!! (he'll probably put zen's ECU in Alto to blow it off!!)

In Delhi, these people know nothing..... they just get away b'coz the public knows nothing too.

People ask me if my WagonR is 1.1 i.e. like the new Santro? (WagonR was always 1.1 .... just b'coz Maruti didn't put a 1.1 sticker on it in the begining)

have worked for a maruti dealer in mumbai and know that these service advisors as they call themselves know nothing. so better contact the regional office or still better send a harsh letter to them and they will work better under pressure.
