    I would get anything that isn't metal mesh. Metal mesh is ok also but your engine oil will get dirty faster only. Metal mesh has higher air flow.

    I'm personally using the Simota one - cheap and cheerful.

    yea, don't use metal mesh, can't filter dust at all have to clean the throttle body around 1-3 weeks to keep performance optimum..

    hi sifus,
    got wira a/b 2002 4g13p to upgrade with a current budget of ~RM2k.
    need suggestion from all sifus what upgrade can be done.

    should i go for aftermarket performance part (eg: hi-cam,etc...)?....what can get with budget above

    or should i save more money to go for 1.5L block upgrade?

    just want to know which one is worth for money to invest. if just by aftermarket part can achieve same result as change to 1.5L with less investment, sure will go for that.....:tongue:

    if i were u id go straight for a 1.5 block, best bang for buck...torque increases all over the board

    ...then start from this as a base

    4k sounds pretty good, may be able to do a stroker kit right away

    4g15 block + 4g18 crank/pistons

    u can try contacting Powerzone to see what they can offer you with a budget of 4k

    you'll prolly save more if you source items yourself, provided you have a competent workshop

    try pm'ing iszo, his is efi and done up already, can advise you

    mine is carburetted so things are simpler haha

    but just asking for their suggestion for mod. with budget of RM2k (which actually my current budget right now.....haha)

    extractor = RM490.00
    camshaft = RM1300.00
    powercable = RM200.00

    the quote including the labour charges edi.......

    sounds worth it ar?

    powercable i think not necessary, bosch plug cables are cheap n cheerful, rm60 or so...change new standard copper plugs too

    as for cams, what degree are they recommending u? im using matspeed, i think their regrind ones are cheaper than that...u can contact squirtparts...im using 272 degree matspeed cam, low end of the rpm abit less but nice fatter midrange to top..cipan of squirtparts will be glad to help u

    oo totally stock standard ka? yeah at the minimum exhaust and intake first

    yep izso is also a moderator here

    a higher profile cam will shift powerband upwards

    something like a 4g15 block will add power everywhere

    if too itchy...u can do the cam first...and block later...cam can be swapped over

    hehehe....."Sarawak" is it?.....
    just pm the powerzone to estimate a price for mod to 4g15 block + stroker:

    "block ada surat kedai potong jual RM2k+-
    crank 1.6L RM950.00
    piston bergantung pada compression RM500 - 2k

    re-bore block
    honing block
    blueprint proses
    full overhaul gasket
    cleaning proses (chemical)
    lapping block
    RM3k+-

    lain kos tambahan untuk modifikasi performance (option)
    - oil squirter
    - shot peening
    - lightening part (rods,piston set)
    - conductif coating
    - truswasher support
    - high com piston modification
    - full balance"

    :afraid::afraid::afraid::afraid:

    if by calculate base on the highest price each item ~6k++......shock man!
