hi all,
i have a honda city 1.3exi 1999 currently have 4-1 header and a kn high flw filter(conical) from frk......

1. the 1st and 2nd gear have to be forced in sometimes and reverse grinds when shifting at rest.... cause??

2. the tyre size is showing 175/70/13 ..are these stock???

3. are potenza g3 or es100 available in 195 /60/13 if so will my stock rims do??

4. how often does the filter need to be cleaned (indian roads)???

5. can the steering sensitivity be increased??

6. can the steering wheel be changed ???(to something sporty like the m3 kind of steering)

7. anybody know where i can learn the basics of rally driving ?? (wanted to ask anyways)


thank you for your time....

i just finished watching 5 seasons of topgear (sigh 3 more to go)....and i have to say jc,hammond and may are just awesome.... heard the new season is starting in feb..

Could be a weak clutch or could be that you're not depressing it properly. Get the clutch & gearbox checked up from a good garage.

Yes these are stock sizes.

G3's are available in that size but I would not recommend fitting a tyre that wide on stock rims. You should stick to 185/65 R13 as it is a good upsize & will fit fine on your stock wheels.

I think somewhere between 5-10k depending on dust & driving conditions in your city.

Minor difference can be made by switching to good tyres but it would be a very miniscule difference. No other ways are there to increase sestivity and why would you want to do it anyways?

Yes it can be changed.

In India I don't think there are any schools. There are some in the UK & you can google it for more information.

thank you for the reply... steering play is too long i feel, i want to be able to turn more with less rotations (i have to turn the wheel quite a bit just to switch lanes) i guess it will be better at higher speeds...

why on earth would honda put smaller tires (13inch, one onch smaller) for a car thats basically the same as 1.5,vtec....

anybody here got an greddy emanage here??? if so is it any good??

1. might be the synchroniser rings in the gearbox
2. i think 175 are stock for the honda city 1.5, not sure about the 1.3
3. potenza is available, stock rim should be fine
4. regular filter, maybe once in 2000 or 3000 kms, go for k&n
5. not sure, dont think so
6. yes definetly
7. there are plans to conduct a rally school but i think that this is on hold for now, will keep you posted if there is something happening.

Smaler tires have larger side walls and hence you get a better ride quality(you already know this)
Why you ask,does the car have these even though its basically is the same as the 1.5/v-tec.The same reason why the M3 has a one inch upsize on the standard 3 series.Blah blah...The 1.3 is more of a family vehicle whle the v-tec is driver oriented.

OTher reason-fuel efficiency

That depends on your tyres condition. :)

That's not possible without expensive modifications.

1.3/1.5 came with the same tyres i.e. 175/70 R13 only difference was the brands & wheelcaps. VTEC came with 14" for a multitude of reasons not limited to - More cost of 14" tyres, more ride comfort with 13", diffrentiating factor to make the extra cost of the VTEC reasonable etc. etc.

What do you mean by that?

It is detuned to compensate for our poor fuel quality. And no the 1.5 is not detuned to a 1.3, they are two different engines.

whoa thanks for the info.....

by ecu specs i wanted to know if obd 1 or 2, various functions the ecu controls apart from the obvious spark/injector timings etc.
