Perhaps its OT, but can someone tell me whether a FFE fitted on a Swift can be used on an Accent? My friend is removing his and has offered it to me but i dont know the technicalities of whether it will fit on my Accent.

Also, if it does fit, is it advisable?
Or will it cause problems later on?

I want to get the FFE and the air filter installed on my OHC Vtec. How much do you guys think it should cost me? Also will there be a drop in the FE?

My PUC is due in september & i was wondering if my car will pass that. mikem's post here has given me some confidence, but doubts still persist. I can smell unburnt petrol in my exhaust. Is that a problem ?

John, I'm sure it'll pass... with flying colors too.

I got my car checked sometime back and the pollution levels were well within the limits. (Even with the straight pipe and without the center muffler). Dont worry. Maruti's are very environment friendly.

I hope so too. I have 2 mufflers, so that means I am more safe ?

Yes. The emission reading / values will be higher if the center muffler is absent.

Others please correct me if I'm wrong, but as far as I am aware, the purpose of a muffler is to reduce sound pollution. The PUC test checks for chemical and particulate pollution, so the key issue there would be the removal of the catalytic convertor (which is done in most FFE jobs, except if you've gotten a cat-back).

Red face checked with Raj Hingorani

Ok I so I just talked to Raj - and told him I got his number from tbhp database and that I have an end pipe done from Shabbir and he said he will get the headers done for 6.5k in MS and also said no need for SS as headers dont get rusted anyway
I was starting to talk about low end and mid end torque, he said forget it whatever you want shabbir will do and that he will talk to Shabbir that I am coming tomorrow Just goto shabbir tomorrow morning and leave your car there for full day and evening whatever you want will be done!!
So guys do you think this is a good option at 6.5k, compared to leaving the car for 2 days with FRK for a 12k odd??

Hey Jassi! I've personally talked to both Raj and Shabbir and they really seem to know what they talk about. I'm planning to get my headers done by them also, although I may have to go in September....

Raj H. is a very respected tuner and Shabbir is very experienced with header designs for various cars.
