    Default Baleno light modifications

    Dear Experts,

    I now have a baleno 2005 (prev. car 06 A/T Coure). Anyway, the car has done 40K Kms. I have been thinking about light performance upgrades - which dont strain my budget yet give me better performance and perhaps a nice sound as well. Would appreciate your views. Please note I am not into getting myself noticed with a huge exhaust and exterior modifications etc. I want simple and subtle performance upgrades and perhaps a nice sound - thats all.

    Would appreciate help.. thanks

    just upgrade your intake system by fitting an intake pipe and cone filter. you'll get some performance and sound only when you put your foot down, otherwise you'll just enjoy quiet & comfortable driving (and not attract the attention of the police also)

    Thank you for everyone's comments.

    Storm: Thanks for the tip. What if I was also to change the spark plugs? What would be the impact on fuel consumption? Perhaps you can also suggest the best ones to go for?

    Many thanks..

    without seeing your system i woudln't be able to comment. but generally speaking the one with adjustable valves ususally adjust back pressure so if that is the case it'll defeat the purpose of fitting a backbox since it'll bring the backpressure about to stock setup to keep the noise down.

    @shabana786
    your post made absolutely NO sense!

    @jhashmif1
    anytime buddy. Unless your plugs are old and need replacement i woudln't bother changing them, you're better off getting them cleaned and havign the plug gaps checked. So called performance plugs do NOTHING without upgraded wires and spark amplification (like MSD, etc.)

    Get rid of the 5 inch tip that is one of the things amplifying the noise levels. Use a similar diameter tip as that of the exhaust or muffler end. And noise is amplified even when you have a bigger then needed exhaust. Meaning stock pipe is 1.75 inches and you used 3" all the way. You have lost low end power and amplified the noise, use a 2.25" pipe not more then that unless you have Turbo equipped car. So 2 things the tip smaller and smaller diametre pipes.
