innova is other choice but pricey i am speaking for a typical middle class family whose tight budget is main concern .
my question is though sumo has 3 ltr engine but is lacking in power only two digit work horse power. is there any chance to increase its power 100bhp . suitable in all terrains hill drives full loaded. can any one give suggestion as is it possible .
If the sumo has shares the same 407 2596CC engine with Safari Dicor 3.0, You may very well modify it upto 116HP. Safari uses a Turbo and different ECU/ common rail to achieve the same. However the cost and reliability of these mods are often impractical.
These days you can often find a used safari 3.0 at throwaway prices. Why don't you buy that?
