Caroholic
Your car is just WoW in terms of looks. Fantastic set of wheels but pls get rid of those tail lamps.

Next time, get the running repair done else you are gonna get robbed every time with paid service. Hope you know the trick now.

Can i answer that?

I had a 1.3 Getz on which I had installed a Ractive conical filter and a free flow from Viper. It make a big difference on the driveability of the car and it pulled quite well and put a smile on my face.

I would recommend it since the Getz isnt really quick as stock.

If you can get a remap or something it will help in getting rid of that flat spot between 2-3k rpm.

Really appreciate your response Akshay and you probably have answered my Question spot on! More so since you probably knew what I was referring to, being a Getz owner yourself.

Now that you have got me closer to Nirvana , what would U suggest I do for now:
1. Go in for a Filter and FFE or one of the 2 ? Make and Cost Please.
2. If you probably wouldn't want to answer the first one, then how much for a Remap? Where and who is reliable ?

Thank you once again for your advise.

Well speak to Bangalore bhpians and find out where is a good place to get an FFE done. The headers should be 4x2x1. It shouldnt cost more than 10k or so for the FFE.

For the filter it depends on which one you go for. Can be from anything between 3k to 7k.

For a remap/standalone ecu check out Race Dynamics which is in Bangalore. It will be 20k+ im guessing.

There are also other people like Zakie and Kiirus from Bombay but since your in Bangalore RD would be the best bet.

Great Akshay, appreciate your input bro.

20k would be a bit steap at this point, but yes, either a Filter or FFE is coming up soon on my White Pearl.
