    He had more than 2 times my power, with larger wheels and tyres won't affect his acceleration performance much unlike mine.

    A bit hard leh..

    Floating is when your car feels like it's floating, not connected to the road. Usually happens when the road is not smooth and your suspension is too stiff.

    Bodyroll is what you get when your corner hard and the car leans left or right depending on the corner.

    Stiff is stiff la. Stiff suspension is stiff. I dunno how to explain this

    Don't bother with 16" la. Unless you got 200-300bhp then can go 16-17" size. Normal Wira all 15" is the best already. 195/55/15 for relative comfort but 195/50/15 if you want pickup but comfort will be affected. Also your wheel arch will look spacious

    195/55R15 for comfort and 50 series handling. There is also a 205/50R15, but more expensive and less choices again......lol

    I always remember how my mechanic mention when he tested a Lambo. In his younger days, service super cars. He tested one on Jalan Kuching, those days not many cars. When the car is stable you don't feel the speed, only the trees seems to blink by. Had a look at the speedo was doing 145mph.......lol

    Only few weeks ago my friend was test driving my car. Got overtaken by a new Saga with a very newly registered Perak plate when we were going slower. He thought we can give chase easily. That ended up into a high speed chase all the way until 170kmh and yet the distance cannot be closed. It wasn't even on highway roads and that new Saga is going that fast. However as we reached a section with slight uneven roads, we noticed the Saga was affected quite noticeably and it slowed down by a lot, to maybe 130-140kmh perhaps? My Wira went over that patch of road, affected slightly by it, though my friend did lift off a little just in case. The Saga is fast but I don't think it is as stable as my Wira with my new suspension setup.

    145mph? Miles per hour? That is way over 200kmh.

    Your stock engine? Maybe mine vdo for speed is worst, just fuel consumption is good.
    Before I planning to upgrade 4g18 crank, find a used turbo kit and low com piston to fit in. But forman say vdo cant be tune, online survey also said auto relearning, need to use standalone. Standalone very very exp But they said vdo system able work with Unchip or Work EMS. Now a days I only can found unichip in market and I go tuning shop ask for some details, thy said VDO can use with unichip but one things is cannot remove rev cut(not sure 6.8k or 7k cut)

    Engine stock. Only things I did is 4-2-1 extractor, 1.7 inch exhaust piping with a bullet/resonator and twin tip muffler from Wira 1.8. Also I had my ignition timing advanced which is adjusted at the distributor. That's it. Engine oil is on fully synthetic 5W-40 and this is important too for engine performance.

    I don't plan to do as much as you write like standalone ECU or turbo kit. Just minor cheap upgrade and try to keep most things OEM or stock. Wanted the car to be balanced, an all rounder. If I want to go for heavy performance mod, I will definitely choose to buy another car to do it, not my current Wira.

    Mine also 4-2-1, bullet and exhaust other stock, now I searching for twintip ori. Because I plan to rebuild my daily car, so i consider can project more, now only interior almost done like using SE doortrim, big carpet, recaro gsr and stock dashboard(evo black dashboard is too exp, maybe go for SE 1st).
    Your mmc compatible with piggyback, not same with me. But the cost is spend for 1.5, thy recommend go for 4g92/93

    You did your exhaust mod but is your engine actually healthy? That is one important factor. Does it consume engine oil or anything?

    My interior is strictly all stock except the audio player. I don't want to do anything there, just keeping it as it is.
