While the Honda Brio jumped ahead of Creta in the first run due to its light weight and manual gearbox the Creta ate its lead as its turbo came in to its working range. Even in the second run a similar thing happened the Creta took back its lead after a little bit of distance in the race. The modifications done on the Honda Brio cannot be called a complete tune as the cars Ecu is stock , until and unless you tune the Ecu in a modern vehicle and tweak its air fuel ratios the vehicle isn’t going to produce much more Horse Power.
