    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    add full coolant first. let the rust all tanggal and floating. then take out coolant and flush with running water. add again coolant and let it run again. repeat with running water. LOL

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    usually after flushing and then add coolant, if there's still rust, it's from the water passage inside the block. u will need to remove water pump, thermostat and water plug at the block side and do chemical flushing to remove all the rust. then radiator send again for service and cleaning...

    this kind of rusting not advisable to use coolant. later become like my car. the water jacket terus burst, bypass pipe burst. coz coolant eats through the rust. hahaha

    i dunno man. my wira previously using sport springs. i don't understand why police always stop me at roadblocks. haha. so after i swap and repaint, i remove the sticker. now no skirting what so ever. just using taiwan adjustable to set the height to my liking. oh, i'm also using orange signal. haha.

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    just cabut that terminal, remove airbox then trace the wiring. if a lot of wires on the -ve, it's usually added for extra grounding. can just tidy it up

    cons of doing swap when u lack experience and you're not familiar with the workshop. because of this, i had to learn about cars. i had zero knowledge about cars before i did my engine swap. hahaha. thanks to @Izso and @vr2turbo and the other gangs for helping me build up my knowledge. you can...

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    get the powerzone extractor. tried and true on a lot of cars. piping u can use 2" with proper high flow resonator (not those bullet kind crap). for mufflers, i would get big belly ones or bantal ones like in my profile photo there. it's more quieter than those canon type. but keep in mind that...

    i thought u gonna swap 4G92 MIVEC? :driver: those mods @Izso can clarify coz he'd done all of it on his old 4G15 wira. brakes if u still using 4g15 i think no need to upgrade to 1.6/1.8 or GSR. u'll brake lock very easy. just upgrade the rotors to slotted ones and use good pads. tyres i'd still...

    whoaaaaaaa dat simen. but looks like fibreglass hood. no ah?
  24. sanekit

    4g15 use 4g92 manual gearbox

    gear ratio longer. will take a while to get up to speed compare to your 1.5 gearbox. means your car will have no pickup except for 1st gear and 2nd gear. 3rd up to 5th gonna take a while and maybe will have trouble going uphill. can plug and play iinm but flywheel size maybe different.
  25. sanekit

    coilovers

    ah ok. if like that u will need the knuckle and the driveshaft. did some search on other forums, evo driveshaft is a bit larger than airtrek so not direct pnp on the knuckle. if u just swap the calipers, just like u said, you will need brackets. but cheapest option is caliper and brackets.
  26. sanekit

    coilovers

    driveshaft maybe ok coz airtrek most stuff should be pnp with evo 7.

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    your shifter is high? short shifter means the throw is shorter when u shift. i mean your shifter lever long, u can get those shorter lever from lancer or evo. but i think wira supposed to be same as lancer. hmm. looks like i will need to buy one to test out. haha. thanks bro.

    wow. price went up eh for 93 sohc. lantai sumore. last time can get complete with gearbox for that price. swap fee usually around 700-1.5k depending on the parts needed to change. i advice bring a mech to check the engine lantai if you're buying that. or best just go search on FB groups for...
  39. sanekit

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    that is good pricing actually considering the parts they mention plus the labor and tuning.
  40. sanekit

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    i can tell u that 92 sohc will get that lighter accelerating feel u want compare to 91 dohc. in terms of "toy" to play, same same saja coz both is still 4g9x engine. difference is just dohc and sohc. u can always convert that 92 sohc to a dohc head from any 4g9x series. like sifu @Izso said...

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    LSD mivec gearbox is 2k++. haha. 1.3-1.7k is non LSD version. i would try and find 4G92 DOHC non mivec if u still wanna keep your RM90 roadtax. 91 dohc macam not much different in terms of power output compare to your current 4G15. or get a 92 single cam and slowly save up for a mivec head or...
  42. sanekit

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    4g91 with lsd mivec gearbox sounds good. :driver:
  43. sanekit

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    yes u can. plug and play. no issues. only the gear ratio different. example cruising at 100kmh now, rpm is 3k, on the 4g91 the rpm will be slightly higher.
  44. sanekit

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    coz previously the system doesnt have that much coolant in it. then u flush and put in more coolant. hence the rust all coming out. happened to me. flush again and fill up coolant. when it gets brownish again, repeat until your radiator got cool green stuff inside. hahaha
  45. sanekit

    Rm8k Wira ownership experience-A long way to go

    hmm. can get good FS for that price actually. plenty of option and choices.
