Looking good Mohith!

Ron, this is brilliant.I hope to buy a car sometime next year. Hopefully, by then you would have something up your sleeve for diesels.

Got to hear what happened at the the Dyno.
Funny story get mohit to tell you sometime lol.

You guys made a mistake doing the pull on pump gas.
You should have filled high octane and bumped up the timing a few degrees for the Dyno pull.

The Base line is a Stage 1 Baleno with the following mods
a. Stand alone ECU
b. Fuel race headers
c. Cold Air intake and a few other mods.
The maps on the stand alone where developed on a Dyno.
Pretty much a Group N spec car.
It is not a stock Baleno.

While I was browsing this post , an old timer marine chief engineer ( who used to be an auto buff himself and owned a Baleno) had a look at it. " Impressive" , he said , " This is what tuning should be. You Tune for efficiency and get that extra HP and Torque as bonus".
I fully agree. Very good job , Ron.

Forgot to pen down an update.

9000kms done in 2.5 months and car is in hibernation. Went on a drive to Munnar and I took the car from him and gave the Zen to drive. Fantastic in the ghats, power delivery and handling. Was takin it easy with a 3 month old baby in the car.

Well Anish is happy and want to take it to the 'Next Level'. Ron, if you have the time, I can go to Kerala and pick up the car and drop it off.

Not right now man. Just swamped with work and pressure.
Too many things going on right now. Flow bench, Injector testing and study rigs being done, National Saloon car builds.
And all my pending work.

Sure we can take the power up to 100 BHp easy peasy. But at what cost ?
You will loose a lot of that magical low and mid-range.

You wont be able to run any pump gas. Only 93 or better.

There are 3 steps to taking it to the next level. Ive allready done the math.

a. Dump that tiny TB. Run a Honda TB or something in that size.
b. Increase your compression ratio.
c. Get a stand alone ECU.

Those 3 things will take you past 100 BHP. But I would not do it if it was may car. Cause I prefer that LT kind of feel from the present setup.
Ps:
And Im not doing anything for anish till he posts a proper feedback, himself.

Funny how people used to make fun of RDD saying we dont do car builds. Now that we are. Nobody is opening their mouth.
