well i did see him mention somewhere in his posts that he intended to take this car on a drag strip if im not wrong..so based on that i gave my suggestions as just the engine swap would not do justice to him if at all he plans to enter the drag scene in the open class where the competition is fierce..if he wants to enter the drag scene then the better option would be go with the desi esteem engine and spend some dough on it..that way he would be competant enough to participate in the zen-esteem class..and the cost would be nearly the same as the twin cam engine swap(un modified)..

Hey Mclaren,

I agree with you and that is exactly what I suggested as well in first reply.

To mclaren & viper: hey guys, thanks for all your info. it's been really helpful. but mabe i should clarify myself better.
lol...the info iv gotten in the past few days has been so overwhelming that im really confused.
The thing is i would be using my car only occasionally for dragging, so basically il be using it for street racing more. And 1.5 to 2 lakhs is WAY over my budget! the budget i am looking at is between 50-60, or 70 MAX.
Now keeping in mind both the mpfi and the carb esteem engines (i know the prices of both):

1. will the twin webbers come in my budget?

2. if i use twin webbers does it mean i need not add a free flow and a intake filter?!

3. other than this, for my specifications, what other works would i have to do on my car as a whole, for example, the gearbox, suspension, brakes, flywheel, cams, etc.

Please give me this info in detail.

Godspeed.

Hey Ghost,

I suggest you read carefully. This is what I said "by just plonking in the twin cam(rebuilt engine) he can get 114bhp straight away".


1> A used matched set should cost you approx 25-30k.
2> You do need a free flow. You will need a different type of filter to use with the Webbers.
3> There is lots you need to do but you dont have the budget for any of them.

I suggest you first start by putting in the engine and then arrange some funds and then start worrying about the rest.
