    in total, I paid like rm1.5k and another rm160..
    total is RM1660..

    ok, as I don't have much budget for this, I can't expect much from this overhaul.

    The turbo was upgrade to TD06 18g, I thought should have more power but only boost at 0.8bar.
    The whole engine was overhaul and polish, much quieter and FC is better.
    in the past, fc is like half tank on a single day while now, only a quarter tank.

    Flexible exhaust is gone again, think my car too low.. but hack with it, just live with it.

    ISC and clutch was replace and repair, much smoother.

    Speedometer error light, cannot remove. don't know why..

    driveshalf was replaced twice during the overhaul, but gone again when I drove it..
    lucky got warranty, need to replace when I go back to jb end of the month..

    actually, I feel he could do more but business was good and his hands are tight..
    he only focus minimally

    haha, yeah. roti kosong..
    to be frank, I had a bad start..
    I trusted the wrong fellow and workshop, I think I already spend rm4k for pointless repair and lousy items.

    rule of the thumb, don't trust your friends too much. especially if they own workshop

    I also don't know, keep changing.. I don't drive aggressively..
    too low? road condition?

    still ok, it's smooth.
    when the rpm hit 3-4k, it will launch..
    after overhaul, can feel the whole car very light.
    eager to go..

    My mechanic introduced by my uncle, now with him 30 years....lol

    Maybe too low, but during acceleration no problems? I lowered my VR a lot last time, the car vibrates upon hitting pass 3k rpm, then raise back no problem. Suspect when lowered the drive shaft angle was bent too much.

    3 - 4k rpm is boost range, so same as TD-05....

    yeah, if you found a comfortable workshop, stick to it.
    don't be like rojax, end up, headache, disappointment and wasting of time and money.

    yeah, he purely does motorsport. I tried to refer my friends to him but was rejected.
    he strictly do motorsport..
    his price is still ok, at least compare to the one that I been to..
    he can do a very good job but he just don't focus.. too many customers.. I leave my car for 2 weeks and he only touch it after 5 days and everything was done in few days time..
    Johor workshop is a big and profitable business..

    too bad, I ought to learn the skill from young..
    go what school, become mechanic is better :biggrin:

    driveshaft, I give up..
    use v6, evo3, sei..
    I just leave it to him..

    the best remedy, is don't touch.
    don't do anything about it.
