  1. Cost for performance enhancements

    providing the exhaust can breathe OK, cam timing is usually the big thing missing from most engines and gives good power for the money, if your engine has a timing belt that needs changing at a major service, you could do the cam swap then. if you email me the engine specs, ie, twin cam or single, bore and stroke and ignition timing and standard cam timng, I will design your cam for free. regards Carl.
  2. Cost for performance enhancements

    I am getting worse as I grow older,I now drive a GTR V spec R34 which has plenty of mods but never enough power, you think I would "grow up" being 43, but I must say, the fast driving bit is on a circuit or appropriate speeds only on an empty good road far away from a city,and not with the kids in the car!! please take note young guy's, fast cars and highways will be in India soon,drive carefully please!!! one accident can ruin someones life.
  3. Cost for performance enhancements

    Depending on the genuine filter type,K&N's will usually be a FLOW increase and if put together with other modifications,will result in more power,but again it needs to be said that it all needs to be matched and calculated to be an overall power gain from standard, eg, cam,exhaust,intake,mapping [jetting]& possibly in some engines compression and spark advance mods.
  4. Trouble is,if you want big sports bikes,you need over 95 octane fuel and nice highways [or racetracks] to use them on,then your police [like ours] will discover speeding fines as a good revenue raiser!
  5. Cost for performance enhancements

    I think FRG hit it spot on when he siad "you tend to drive harder just to hear the noise" after 28 years in the hot up game,the advice he gave again I will say,made me laugh because it addressed every point and was SPOT ON.
  6. Racetrack in Hyderabad, AP?

    Dear Zavo, you are very right,lets just say most of what we have just had printed and bound only 30 mins ago was detailing EXACTLY what you mentioned was critical,in fact about 30% of it was pitched that way,luckily I have very good locals who know how it works,very detailed to that point. yours sincerely. Mr baksheeeesh
  7. Indian motorsport coming of age

    If we could get some net support to show the minister in our second presentation,we may be allowed to build the circuit for all to use,the R34 will be brought over as a "promotional/pace car" for the circuit,when I return home I will email pictures to the forum and videos of me racing it,to prove to anyone who doubts us.[ actually I have a DVD here in India if anyone wants a download of me racing at bathurst and oran park at the "Autosalon" Z tune release track day. thanks, Carl
  8. Fuel for bikes

    And the octane / RON number? this is the big question
  9. Fuel for bikes

    There is a big difference in Fuels,Octane rating [and RON] are paramount,all big Hi Po machines state 95 octane or higher, we have 92,95,98 and 100 in Australia all stated at the pump. You can detonate and melt a turbo engine very quickly with bad fuel, unless you change the spark map to suit [retard spark for lower octane because it burns quicker] Carl.
  10. Fuel for bikes

    Thank you, as even the staff at the service stations dont quite know,I need to know because we are planning to import certain Hi Po models from O/S
  11. Racetrack in Hyderabad, AP?

    I ran that around the office here and they said ACIs response is a bit like "BIKE Indias, 4 days after asking them for help they cant even return an email, it has been suggested that at my level it could be just a bit to much for them to be mature enough to join hands instead of being overawed by someone who is only trying to improve things,not take all there jobs/ whatever.again,thank you for being helpfull, thats the best help weve had,and its from overseas!!

  14. Racetrack in Hyderabad, AP?

    Wow,we dont even know where we can put the track yet! well done! being in kazakhstan,I dont see you next to me in our offices in Hyderabad, And it doesnt take a Hermann to design a great track, big names come with crores of money,last proposal wasted 2 crores before the thing was even designed.
