Shyam PM this link to "turboindia" and let him have a look at this. Its unacceptable to have hot tracks rip a customer off 4.2k and give him a filter that doesn't fit. And Anil won't take it back because its cut now. Peter, if you reading this you really got to do something about this.

Shyam, do you have a license to fly?
Ok, so your a little crazy, and you talked about how you are levitating 10cm off the ground these days. Now for the more conservative guys like me, who want to go fast but wont take the risk (again, ), what are the potential drawbacks of this box? Effect on the engine life? And you have again missed the very pertinent query - what do you do when you go for service? Is the knob and box removable completely?

Drawbacks will be VITAMON. The engine life is reduced by atleast 20% other people may have other opinion but this is mine. And for the knob thinggy it can not be removed but the box can be removed, all that needs to be done is to remove the connector thats all.

Your green filter seems to be a different one.

Some pics of my Green filter.

I think you got the filter for the Petrol Getz instead of the Diesel Getz, How do I know this, well at first when I went to get the filter the guy got the petrol filter and found that it was too big to fit into the diesel car and then he inquired with the stockiest who confirmed that the filter which is available and sent to the dealer was the only one for the Getz. Well he also had the K&N filter and I chose to get the K&N over the Green one.

He! He! I got the petrol getz filter first too. Then went and exchanged and even then this happened . Oh! and i must tell you guys. I sent the pics and the measurement of my filter to Peter of petes and guess what i get prompt replies, so prompt that i could not keep up and after i sent all this he promply agreed to change the filter. There has been a mixup and Peter was very very gracious to accept the mixup and offer a replacement almost immediately. I have never ever come accross such good customer support. Having said that i also need to say Peter is a very nice guy.

Peter, I respect your professionalism deeply. I wish more people (read tuners) are as transparent/professional as you are.
