I think one good investment is a decent Recaro Seat with a 5 point harness.
If you find a good one, then give me too the details!!

I think both these companies are known for racing type seats.
Any place in Pune / Mumbai anyone can recommend where it can be done?

Mods eh!!
To start with, get an FFE. not aftermarket, but the customized one. Head to automech.
Full calcualted Headers.
4-2-1
& muffler.
Next, u can shave off the head to increase compression. add to it increased heat range plugs, and ur ready. Lightening the flywheel is another option, but will kill low down torque. Similarly high-lift cams will make life miserable in city.
For a budget of 1lakh, If u ask me, i'll say TURBO.
Go ahead and fix one. U'll need.
1. turbo
2. intercooler
3. plumbing
4. sensors
5. blow off valve
6. external waste gate
7. plumbing
8. gauges
9. piggy back ecm/ stand alone ecm
10. as well as fuel regulators and pumps
All these will come to near a lakh. even less if u can source a used turbo in good condition. Stock internals will handle around 7-9psi. any more and u need forged.
With this trim in good shape, expect around 120+bhp with lots of mid range.

@ Racerdabba - The rocam 1.6 isn't TURBO friendly. The bonnet is all occupied.
2,3 of them have already failed ,turbo thing doesn't work well.

Moreover getting all new parts & a reliable job done costs 1.5 lakh upward.Above my budget.
People have paid upto 4 lakhs for a reliable turbo job.

Read about your Maruti turbo too, why not put up a post here ?
