    A quick service

    1. Engine oil change
    2. Fuel Filter
    3. Air Filter
    4. Oil Filter
    5. Coolent change after radiator flush.
    6. Ignition coil change
    7. Throttle body clean

    And s10 is behaving very well with excellent pickup and smooth power delivery.

    This will keep the restoration on hold for next few months. Next part will be changing suspension set up.

    May be tomorrow afternoon or Sunday morning I will be visiting Pandit Auto, Bavdhan to check my S10's AC related issues.

    Need to check AC leakage, AC Gas refill & looking for a center console of the dashboard with headunit compartment & digital clock. If price for center unit is high then I may look other options as well.

    Yes the price of Engine is Rs. 55k and 2 of friends got this engine in their car. Palio and Palio Adventure.

    The decision of getting new engine is on hold at the moment and we will be working on existing and we may order bare engine instead full engine assembly.

    Believe me guys the power from 1.6 FIAT Engine is so addictive and it continue to impress you till 7500 RPM.

    Where do you order the engine from? And is it a brand new engine or sourced from a used market or something?

    New engine can be ordered from KAWA motors, AFAIK. But the problem is that that engine is actually Siena weekend engine and different from the GTX/S10/Adventure engine. Experts like Nimish can clear the doubts. :)

    Is it possible to fit Punto/Linea’s front break assembly to Palio S10?

    I know few of us upgraded S10’s breaks with Palio Adventure breaks.

    Today the first phase of restoration completed, thanks to Italia Linea for offering his Palio almost brand new tyres for my Palio.

    Earlier my S10 had tube type tyres and now she is running on tubeless Apollo Accelere 185 65 14 profile and ride became very smooth.

    Next phase is to change the headlight and Suspension setup.
