Thanks vijay.

Apart from that what is needed is xenon's front view.


From morning i am traveling about 70kms + to get a door hinges.

Is that so difficult to get a sumo hinge? Not even one is the dealer place.

Hi Forum members,

Thanks for all your opinion about this project.

Hopefully this project is coming well till now.

Ilango's involvement and his man's skill will for sure make our idea to come well.

Re: Project Tata Sierra

Fantastic. I didn't know that the lucky owner of this Sierra is also on our forum. Welcome onboard, Hari. Do share your experience whenever you get this car delivered, and good luck to Ilango. Looking forward to see the Sierra with final touch.

Drive Safe,

Re: Project Tata Sierra

Thanks guys

First I just got this vehicle some 6months before - used it for a month or so and gave to Ilango.

Before that I did some engine refinement. Initially I planned to port a safari engine.

But considering the registration issues when we exchange the engine, I thought to something else.

Rebored the engine with little extra volume and paired that with safari head assembly.

Now my engine become almost equal power of safari but with same sierra engine.

Also changed few others parts like Air filter assembly, Free flow exhaust - to sync up for increase in volume.

Thinking of some other performance improvements if somebody suggest :)
