I have been facing lag in my Petrol accent in 2nd gear and 3rd at low speed. Pick up is low(rpm below 1) . Car has been bought in 2010 feb. My earlier car is Santro for which i feel pick up is greater than this 1.5 ltr engine
. Though driving part is smooth
We will feel this lag especially while going to high range areas .
Can anyone advise what can be done to increase the performance of the vehicle .
I have checked with Petes regarding any upgrade. But they have mailed back perf kit they have is for diesel engines only. Instead of that green filters can be used.
This is the reply i got from petes helpdesk

But when I inquired I heard there will not be much difference in car performance with filter change (Technical speaking). Can anyone advise on this . Which should i prefer. or is there any other alternate way other than this. Also the tech person said changing the filters also void the warranty.
Thanks in advance
