. This is a discussion on Turbo Charger For Maruti 800 within Accessories & Modifications. Part of The Mech's Garage category; Thanks Varun
I have some old pics somewhere. Its looks a bit different now though.
What is the right place ...
Most of these (DETs, 2JZ, B16/18 etc) belong to the dream category for us in India.
Here mods are mostly based on - Suzuki G13B, G16B, Honda D15 and a few others here and there. Most of cars available here are not popular tuning platforms abroad except a few G13 DOHC GTis and some D15s.
Yeah I know
But if you noticed the engine in City (honda) has the similar block as b16, all you need is a custom block and a nice computer. My mate has prepared his city and spend over 1.5 lac rupees so far. he got a head changed ,exhaust and a haltech sprint 500 on it.
you might do that
True, D15 vtec has been a very popular car to mod here and there are plenty of aftermarket parts available for it. The B16s are built much better with stronger internals that can handle much more power than stock output.
yeah True that
I didn't know that Indian market has no exposure to any of the sports range of the daily driver cars. Putting a Sports badge and giving alloys and side skirts isn't really sports isn't it.
I think they should have introuduced V tec (b16/18 and KA20 engines) to indian market as there are lots of enthusiasts in India
You bet they should have. But none of the manufacturers over here are bothered about out-right performance. Cant entirely blame them since the first question most of the consumers ask is " Mileage kitna deti hai".
That could be one reason they detune many engines in India. Besides the fuel quality issue that is.
I have never been lucky enough to get a TypeR engine here. The best I could find was a B16 engine sometime back. One of my friends with a D15 Honda city came across this engine (in pieces) with someone who planned to build a high boost setup which fell through. Got it a bit cheaper than market price since it was in pieces and a few bits missing.
This was rebuilt with higher C:R - TypeR pistons, cometic head gasket, Knife edged crank, stage 3 puck clutch and all new seals and bearings. Couldnt source the TypeR cam though. This car is one of the few Honda city B16s (swaps) here.
