Which is better,4-2-1 or 4-1? How is Lancer?
Well to be frank i have not heard of anyone complaining about low torque in a Baleno
-If your driving is usually in city & you want good pull until 3000 odd rpm go for 4-2-1
-If your in a moderate town & get to stretch the car to its higher rpms then 4-1 is fine especially since you want a side pipe.
-Lancers i feel dont seem that exciting these days & most of the modded ones here in Bangalore dont seem to be doing great with age,but some have been swapped with evo 6 but you can take a look at lancer Cedia it has good scope with its 2 litre engine,you can find some decent ones for around 4,some years ago when i had invested in a small used car business i had actually stumbled on a modified Cedia for 3.5 lakhs(not stolen
) as the owner was in urgent need of cash,so you can hunt around on the Cedias but i hear most parts are imported from Japan & price is not the issue but parts availability
And can you tell me the diff between asbestos and ceramic coating for the headers. Just for looks?
To be honest i have not seen the ceramic coated ones but i hear its a neater finish (suggested if you will be using a transparent hood with lighting) but it costs 4000 more also(guessing from a conversation long ago),all my friends who have done headers have used the asbestos,but ceramic & asbestos coating is done to prevent excess heat radiating under the hood.
You can also take a look at the first type Honda Accord they go for dead cheap,but parts are on the expensive side.
Guess we should change the heading to "Second hand Baleno for modification."
