    @Hitesh,
    Sorry to say thisABS & EBD ca but cannot be retro-fitted to the car, this needs to be done at factory level while manufacturing, however Bosch is working on retro fitting ABS modules, currently they are experimenting it on 2 Wheelers, hopefully it should make way for 4 wheelers as well.
    Height Adjusted Seats is a possiblity for which you have to change the entire seat assembly, as far as I know back in 2011 I had logged a case on Seat height adjuster and guys from Johnson(Tata Susidery Co, Seat Supplier) had come for the inspection of my car, they claim the seat costs around 12K(Only Driver side) so it is a costly affair.
    I would recommend you to go for the thick grade Art leather seat, eventually you will get adjusted.

    For now all you can do is upgrade your tyres for little better grip and braking.

    Can we swap the Alloys (if they sell one through counter) and tyres from Aveentura on EVO 90 HP with out any suspension modification. By the way Aveentura's tyres are 205 section wider. What about the Alloys' width? Are they same w.r.t EVO's?

    I don't think so you can tuned 75HP to 90HP. Remap may help you to some extent thats it. I am saying this because 75HP uses Fixed Geometry Turbo where as 90HP uses Variable Geometry Turbo.

    Righly said by @Himanshu, 76 ps engine use FGT typr and 90 ps use VGT type so it woulnd't be feesiable for just a turbo swap, even your ECU is different in both these and costs can really high.
    Kiirus/Wolf are couple of tuning companies who can help you with either re maping or adding tuning box which are not only removable but also programmable with just a click.
    I would also suggest you to avoid all this for minimum 3yrs of your warrenty if you you have opted for an extended then 2 more years before Prison breaking your car's management system because for 5 yrs your many of your key engine components are under warrenty and if they find any modification the warrenty would get void.

    I would also like to know if this would be a posibility. As Avvy does not have a T-Jet option, I am planning to go for the Evo. Seniors can shed light on this.
