hey manson..
a good induction kit for an mpfi zen will cost around 8 to 10 k incuding a K&n filter.. it boosts the performance of the car a bit and improves efficiency too...a must for all performance modified cars
it includes a filter..a trumpet..and piping for the air intake from the filter to the throttle body...

There are 2 types in KN filter one is the stock and other is performance. u need not have to modify anything in either of them. only thing is performance filters looks different than the stock once. and it directly fits to you intake hose. Time taken is minimal for the stock, just open the pack and put it in the airfilter box. Performance filter has to be fitted with an extra hose which will be the middle layer for your performance filter and the intake and will not take much time. (But Performance filters makes hussing sound when the air is sucked).

hey mason,
there are two types of air induction kits, one is the short ram, and the other is a cold air intake system. the short ram has a small pipe with the air filter at the end. the diadvantage of this system is that it sucks air from the engine bay, and the air can be hot, so not much of a boost at slow speeds. at high speeds as more cold air gets in it works better.
the cold air intake has a longer pipe that goes below the engine or in front of it (with the air filter attached to the end), and this system draws air from the outside and not from the engine bay...this works the best because it sucks in cold air from the outside. the only problem is in the rain you could spoil the filter.
i have a short ram intake in my palio and ive fixed a 2 inch pipe behind my grill, with the other end facing my air filter. so at speeds above 40 kmph, cold air is directed towards my filter.

lamborghini,
it does make a diff at high speeds, dint find much of a diff in city conditions. but once i got my header installed it worked better. at high speeds the header and the filter really boost performance.
the filter and the flange cost me about 6k. my flange (the pipe that the filter is attached to) is a bit longer as i wanted the air filter as far away from my engine as possible so it was a wee bit more expensive.
am from bangalore so cant help you with the mumbai dealers, sorry

hey tabrez,
got my headers made by RAC (owned by the rally driver ranjit ballal).. and my freeflow muffler is made by shabir (near the TV tower) he is the guy who does all raj's work. my headers (only the manifold till the cillector cost me 4.5k (gave me a deal because i know him well). the rest was done by shabir (cost me another 2k), BTW he makes the best and the sweetest sounding mufflers in bangalore.
i have a 4x1 header not the regular 4x2x1.....so it works best at high revs.

i think if u go for a 4x1 exhaust,ur lower end and mid range drivability will be affected .
so for city driving the 4x2x1 will be more suited.
