Maruti formerly Maruti Udyog Limited are one of the primary car makers in India. The cars are generally badged Suzuki in other parts of the work and have become very popular. There are lots of people modding Marutis out there and we shall cover the most popular models, namely the Ritz, A-Star,Swift,Wagon R, Zen, DZire, Kizashi and the SX4
The cars are relatively easy to work on and there are lots of performance parts around for them if you happen to live in a country where these models are particularly popular. The smaller models respond very well to tuning as it doesn’t take much of a power increase to be noticeable to the driver, in heavier models you will need to put more effort into your tuning projects to improve the performance but with determination and the right parts it is certainly possible.
They are easy to work on and with the right performance upgrades you can turn your 800 into something very special indeed. So lets take a look at the world of Maruti 800 tuning and highlight the greatest modifications for it.
We have seen some awesome 800 tuning projects and there seems to be quite a loyal fan base of 800 owners. We do however see many people wasting money on their 800 doing the wrong mods and then having to start over. Follow our advice to avoid wasting your money
We examine at Ritz tuning and report on the greatest modifications. Maruti Ritzs are popular tuning projects and with a few sensible performance modifications you can dramatically maximise your driving enjoyment.
These small light cars came with a zippy 1.0 3 cylinder engine, a 1.2 4 cylinder petrol engine and the 1.3 Diesel engine. The larger engines tend to give you a better return power wise for your money but with the right mods you can still make your Ritz nice and sporty.
You’ve finished tuning up your engine but you find that at full throttle the engine splutters or stalls. When you get the car on a diagnostic you find that the knock sensor is kicking in to protect the engine.
Engine knock is a condition where the fuel inside the engine ignites prematurely and occurs within an engine running at high compression. (It can also be caused by other factors including low octane/poor quality fuel or hot spots within the engine.)
