    Default Our successful Charade project before PW times :)

    A good friend has got this charade, he also is a member here by the name Innovation. Rarely seen though
    Me and my friend Amin (He was with us on Lahore meet) did most of the work oursekves for converting it with this 4A-FE. It was originaly diesel. Now it is giving us kick *** performance with excellent economy on petrol. we get 15-16 in city with AC and 18-20 on highway. It can smoke any stock civic or rolla with an attitude without a prblem.

    Any how Our intention was to get a good reliable car with maximum eceonomy and good performance on petrol. The project was completed in 2003 and we have not yet faced any major issue with the car like a broken foundation or a misplaced or broken axle. It took us 4 months to complete and we got help from one kharadiya *** mechanic friend and Haji Ishaq in the end to fix 2 trouble codes which were beyond us.
    here are some engine bay pics with Nashit checking the babe thoroughly

    wat was the total conversion cost & why u didn't convert it with Daihatsu 1.3 engine which comes in Charade Sedan i think it needs less alteration to be done on chassis.

    the car costed us around 350000 at that time. we evaluated a lot of options and finaly went for the 4A-FE. Dauhatsu 1.3 cannot give u the grunt which this engine can and its not economical compared to this one. This one runs lighter because of better power to weight ratio and in turn consumes less fuel.
    Alterations are done to the frame to adjust the engine but its time tested now and working well, much better then what we expected.

    @Toyopat
    Radiatopr is enough for it, its custom made and its working with an automatic fan with Thermostat installed.
    Engine is actualy in very good condition but its dirty, some people are like that (You know)
    Cost as i already mentioned was 350K with all things done.
    About the Strut bar u r talking about, its optional and it helps increase handling but we have never done illegal racing on this one so never felt a need for that. Our emphasis was a reliable car with economy and better then others performance at same time and we acheived that target. No intention of racing around, but we do tease around some nuts who try to show some attitude Adrenalin Rush u know

    4AFE in Dadoo's are getting very common now. 4AFE Engines are flooded in the second hand market.
    But!!! ofcourse when @spectra did this along with his friends, must be the first such swap in town for sure !
    (Y) very neat job indeed. i bet this car can easilly eat all the sohc honda's out there
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....
