    during my NA days auto transmission summore... i've used adjustable (front only can adjust) coilover kit from GAB malaysia... at that time, i've set it to lowest point and have to change camber setting to negative (a bit)... at that time 110kmh still feels stable

    now after swapping to turbo, i've also swap into L5 ori suspension all around (getting old...wanna have comfy ride :slug: )... now it feels wobbly even after 100kmh...maybe the increase ride height oso increase the lift...

    kinda ironic :hmmmm: ... if paired my old GAB wif current manual tranny + LSD....sure handles like a dream...

    forgot.... kancil's much lighter than a van... silly me :adore:

    yo paan, wrong forum man.. go post a new thread or something..
    ryanz, more or less is your fan. usually you engine will heat up when your air-cond is on cause it's running more. but yours is the other way round.. better go check it out..

    ryanz,
    Your fan is not faulty. It's normal for the temp to go higher with the AC off because when you on the AC the fan will turn on and off more frequently. You can actually feel it. When the AC compressor engage the fan will turn as well. Then when the AC compressor disengage the fan will stop. How to test your fan working or not is by turning of the AC then let the engine run. When the coolant inside the engine side reach the temp that could open up the thermostat then your fan will turn. When this happens, it means that your fan is working fine. If your thermostat open but your fan not running means that your fan is kaput or maybe sensor spoil already.

    Just want to add,

    Electronic sensors ARE WAY MORE EXPENSIVE than analog meters. This goes for replacement sensors, and the initial price of the gauge.

    Personally, I prefer analog meters, but the new electronic meters are close to the response time for analog meters, and they look better too, so depends on budget if anyone wants to go analog or digital.

    Also note the length, longer is better as you can hide the cables from view.

    forgot to mention, i bought a boost meter by autogauge. Got the 90 degrees smoke series

    [​IMG]

    sorry for the blurr pics...

    got it for RM150. tested on road shows that my peak boost reading at 0.8bar....

    went to my pomen, we swapp it wif my pomen's trusty omori.... the reading oso read the same...

    went thru a lot of bumps and potholes but the reading still stable.... just concerned abt the hose used... its the clear one like aquarium always use....

    most ppl i asked, autogauge arguably the best budget meter around..... grown from autometer-imitating-cap-ayam to a pretty solid brand...

    maybe it suits u as well? after that if got budget then go for those branded meter...

    p/s: for ol skool car such as yours...omori is good.. solid japanese brand wif retro look
