Ok. Since 5115 give me green light, I will share another type of product that do not save fuel NOR increase power.

Its the... jejejengg... Voltage stabilizer & Ground Cables. *duck* *duck* (somebody throw shoe at me) Hahaha.

But seriously, this product I know it by the details of the molecules inside it. I just hope after saying this, those VS merchant wont come throw red paint at my house nia.
Here comes the hurtful truth.

VOLTAGE STABILIZER
What it is? - Its just a box with very basic electronics components on it - capacitors. These capacitors have reasonably big values (around 2200uF or above each pieces). What people do not know is, there is already a bigger capacitor in your car. It is so damn big that I think the value is somewhere around 1000 Farads. (not sure really). Where is this big capacitor? - You guessed it - its the Car battery lah!

Now imagine this. You got 1000 Farads of capacitance, then you add 0.002200 Farad more. What you get? yes. 1000.0022 Farad. Wow. That makes a lot of change? LOL!

Secondly, your onboard ECU does not require any additional regulation. Simply because it already have power supply stabilizing circuit inside it.

Someone would be sayingg: "Eh wait, they actually have graphs showing the noise is filtered after put the capacitor wor". That is true. But the high frequency noise that is caused by firing of plugs radiates EVERYWHERE. Not only through the wires. By just sticking the VS at the battery, of course the noise is reduced, but at battery terminals only. But what for? The battery isnt doing anything except supplying current and voltage (ie power). If you have a digital oscilloscope, you can put the VS at battery, and the you measure at the ECU supply pin. You'll be surprise how many noise is coming in. (But no problem since internal of ECU already have a noise suppressor - manufacturer already cater for this).

Some other person would be saying: "Eh wait.. but i really feel got power wor".. There you go, placebo effect again. I have done a test with VS famous brand (***censored***) and there is no difference. To test it, I ask my buddy to choose by himself either one, but don't tell me:
i) Put in the VS
ii) Take out the VS
We do this for 5 times and after he completed he just let me drive the car. All 5 times I have not noticed ANY DIFFERENCE AT ALL.

GROUND CABLES.
(Boy, am I gonna get in trouble for this part! LOL!)
For new cars, don't bother, unless you like the colorful wires appearance in your engine bay.

What is the purpose of ground cables?
Just to ground all the working parts to virtual earth (ie 0V with respect to the battery voltage). All parts at your engine bay area, (like solenoids (for vtec,AT gbox, lamp,aircon compressor,etc)) are given power supply so the return route is the ground cables. If your car is new, then the ground cables should work just fine. But if your car is old, the grounding cables maybe already rusted and its resistance increased. So the power supply given is lesser since the virtual earth is no longer 0V w.r.t. battery -ve terminal. Maybe we have something like 13V when engine is running (since 1V drop in the rusty cable). So the car performance will be diminished by this. Lamp also not bright as new already, and etc.
And since batt voltage is down, so does the sparking timing and voltage - hence engine not properly combusted.

What the cables does is just to RESTORE (not increase) the car's performance. but since the change goes up, you will recognize it as increase power. Which is not. For eg, if new car, the performance is +5. Then after a while, rusty cable causes it to reduce till +4. Chg cable, it restores it to +5. That's all. No increase of power, no reduce in fuel consumption.

Ok, now shoot me. LOL!

Bro, i like the way u explained. It was very professional. U provide the needed proof to suport your say n pin point all mistake made by any other car user.
Yea i've all of those item u mention which is crap on increasing power output on the engine but i got to say , at times it helps in diff way than increasing power. Like i'm driving a small kenari n the grounding is just mere 3 - 4 mm . So it helps my electronice components when everything is on :rolleyes:

Got trolls coming here kacau u ar 5115? Kasi pancung lor. kaka...

Anyway return to the topic at hand.

Someone said that exhaust system do not increase hp. Actually, ANY CHANGES to exhaust will CHANGE hp/torque - either up or down only.. Anything u change at the extractor/header until the muffler will change the back pressure, hence changing the amount of exhaust gas being expelled out from combustion chamber. And anything you change at the intake, will change the air intake pressure, hence the amount of air coming into the combustion chamber.

If you are on a tight budget, the simplest thing to do is changing the extractor. Even without changing the muffler, changing the extractor helps to prevent hot exhaust gases to reenter during the overlapping of intake/exhaust cycle of the valves. Thus, more air/fuel mixture enters your combustion chamber => bigger explosion => bigger torque/hp.

But still, the stock muffler is restricting the exhaust gas to a certain point. So the best way to improve flow is just to let out a little bit more exhaust by using aftermarket s-flow, or straight flow. You can also go all the way by changing all the pipes to straight flow from extractor till muffler, but IMO this is stupid. Modification must be done with fuel consumption in mind. Sure you will gain highest hp with that setup, but it is not practical for daily drive. Unless you really want to donate all your money to fuel. Plus, you will lose low end torque greatly because the torque curve peak just shift to higher end by doing this.

This setup, accompanied by higher intake flow, (also with some level of restriction), would be the best to be done to any street use car that expects a little bit more power, while maintaining practicality. Intake pipes also should be restrictive, hence if you see most of the designs incorporates somekind of loops. This is to make the intake have some restriction on it. To balance with the exhaust setup.

This reply is a bit digressing. But just to reply to someone who said exhaust mod do not increase power.

Yea some say it doesn't increase the engine power output, and some even it unleashes the potential energy from the engine . Wat i can say is , exhaust tuning help unleashes the engine potential energy by fully drawing out the amount of left over waste gas left in the cylinder. Hence a properly tuned exhaust header can help draw out all of the waste gas out to the exhaust pipe and full charge of fresh air filled the cylinder as a result more complete burning .
Same goes to the intake runner, diff length n dimension will determine the air traveling pressure n velocity. High pressure air will have a good low to mid power, high velocity n volume of air will increase mid to top end power. It is not something chap ayam brand use some steel tubing weld n joint n walaa u get wat u wanted . It need endless testing n calculating to achieve desire performance !! :rolleyes::rolleyes:

wahahahaha...wen i read this posting ....:rofl:

infact, i just went to a shop the other day...no offense to the owner, he was generous indeed...but i mean, they claim their product can increase 15% KUASA KUDA! VOLTAGE STABILIZER...TURBO Version...my gudness...smor got DYno chart to show smor wor...

but the DYno thingy very hard to say ma, cos they just light foot abit when without it, then when pasang it tekan kuat kuat...who knows...

15%...pfff....:rofl:
