Have done ton's of research on both the above Tuner's/Freak's.[evil]
I seriously Admire them.

Read about his ikon too,it was running different cam's,FFE, Filters,etc.
Love his Hybrid Honda.Have all his you tube videos on my PC.

Will keep you guys updated and when it comes to enhancing the looks,i am definitely coming to you [:D]

Hey Niel.I can share me knowledge on Modding Cars

Before Mods :
1) Check the condition (health) of all the Components and Replace worn out Ones (Rusted Screws,Worn Out Timing Belts etc)
2) Ensure that the parts can handle all the extra power
3) Check the Timing assembly too

Mods

Free Flow Exhaust System
K&N Air and Oil Filter
Cold Air Intake
Lighter Flywheel
Performance Spark Plugs
Plug Wires
Porting and Polishing
Short Shifters
Standalone ECU
Performance braking and Suspension Setup
DOHC Setup (Wait... Is this ford already has a DOHC Setup ??)
Alloy Wheels
Broader Tubeless tyres with Nitrogen.
A Spoiler with a Hydraulic Lip(Kinda RARE to find )
Fully Synthetic Oil
Roll Cages
Master Cut-off Switch
Fire Extinguishers
Bucket Seats
Engine Tuning

After Mods ,

Please do the ECU Remap and Engine Tuning at the last as this will help in bettsr utilization of All the Upgrades.This will be under a Lakh (I Guess).
And there you Go !! You will have a 120+ BHP Ford Ikon Ready to Race !! Thank you

Sorry for late Reply Mr.Speedvampire.A Fire Extinguisher is a saftey Feature and its also a must add mod after doing any other mods on the Car.Who knows if the SETUP (Not the Mod) is reliable ?? Incase any fire comes,you can Stop it with the Fire Extinguisher.Thank you
