    Alza engine transplant/major modification-mpv fr trackday

    TS seems pretty adamant on a power house MPV for trackdays. Well if u must, this would be easier done with the Exora. People are already dumping serious power into em, gsr conversions, evo conversions and mivec 1.8 etc. But if the only reason you wanna track an MPV because its your family...

    Engine Carbon Clean -- still necessary?

    just like Mitevo7 said.. hence y some manufacturers have the cleaning recommended under the maintenance schedule. Not all though. i guess one of the way to prevent too much gunk build on these GDI engines is to have a baffled oil catch can installed. As part of my own DIY routine maintenance i...

    Ae86 Halfcut

    waaa that E30 looks pretty decent. On updates on my end, i have paid a deposit for a ke70 with a 4age. it has rust here and there typical of its age, but so far no water penetration into the interior and boot. Of all the Ke's i have test driven in this past few months, this had the liveliest...

    Ke70 parts are still cheap. only 4age stuffs are for some reason like gold. The e30 build will definitely happen someday when i can afford a lil more. :)

    Ae86 Halfcut

    i would love to own an e30! but not for learning purpose. dings and broken stuff on a bmw cost way more then a ke. Ke still got lots of body parts available. lamps and etc can get taiwan ones new some more. they are not expensive. If the play car gets too expensive then susah.

    yeah this was the original plan. But my OCDness for car care is bugging me.. hahaha. i need to tune it down if i really wanna get learning to on a rwd platform without a huge dent in the wallet. thanks bro for the input.

    not planing on spending too much on the car. either i get one with a 4age in already, or get a cheap one and plonk it in. but if the cut prices are as you say then definitely not worth it at all

    Ae86 Halfcut

    Hey bro, the only reason the ae86 cut was an option is because its pretty much plug and play. Otherwise a 20v would have been better as parts are still available everywhere. The unser's 7K i guess will be my last resort. got torque but i guess it wouldnt take me too far. i can deal with a lil...

    i guys, i have been looking around for a ke70 with a 4age to be a play car and a learning car for a rwd platform. i have checkout a few Ke's with 4ag and most of them that are within the budget are in very very bad condition. i know it is suppose to be a play car but it has to be roadworthy and...

    Need suggestion : Malaysia Boleh workshop

    Bro, been years and years man! How have you been? Normally a kia to mitsu swap would be pretty straight. But both your cars are from the generation that kia was using mazda engines. With that said the swap to a gsr is tricky like most people here have highlighted. Its gonna cost a lot and to...

    Proton Preve swap 4B10/11 engine

    one of the worst cases of mileage tempering i heard of was recently. this guy bought a preve with 60 plus thousand on the odo if i am not mistaken. when he got the car he went to the service center and checked and found records to about 2++,+++ km.

    Proton Preve swap 4B10/11 engine

    really depends to be honest. when i went shopping around for my suprima, i tested a few preves and suprimas. so many were very badly kept. plus, being on their facebook page i can see so many destroyed cfe's due to the lack of basic maintenance and etc. if he can find a genuine low mileage and...

    Proton Preve swap 4B10/11 engine

    the way i see it you have a few options. really depends on how thick your pockets are. stick with the stock engine, add a sprintex. cost if not mistaken 10k, getting a cfe engine in good condition is tricky. if even if u can find one, you are gonna need with full set wiring or run a standalone...

    Used Car purchase: Inspira 2.0P vs Suprima S

    This was the junction i was at early this year. Inspira or a used Suprima. I am a lil spirited when it comes to the twisties. I enjoy driving unfortunately my budget only allows for these cars and frankly speaking anything else in this price range is older or if its newer its a boring car. After...

    Any Proton Preve user here?

    i currently own a suprima. If you are as particular about a car's maintenance as i am then im afraid the used car lot has not much to offer. although i did buy a used one, it is only because it was very very well maintained by the previous owner and it only had 25k on the odometer. otherwise the...

    still have yet to fully find a solution that is doable.. for now it will just be a topic i discuss among people with good technical knowledge. i actually would like to track down the guy who did it to his preve. if i can find out what are the issues he faced and etc i may be able to figure out a...

    how are you monitoring the temp? external gauge? like vr2 asked, how is the flow? checked to see if the thermostat is opening fully? since you said boiling, had a look at the radiator cap? i am not very familiar with fiats but what temp does it normally idle at?

    Proton CFE Manual Swap

    i would prefer to not swap the engine out..although i know the mitsu series does fit in fairly well, still i am sure there are bound to be issues with the set up. well if the cfe were manual i am sure the power figures can be bumped up. because to be honest the factory figures is pretty weak for...

    Proton CFE Manual Swap

    as far as everyday driving is concerned i think its pretty decent. as for the way the cvt drives, drivers need to tune their habits to suit. otherwise gonna end up like most of the punch cvt boxes. i will say one thing though it takes very little to get the car moving,however it does it in a...

    i dont know what was proton thinking when they slapped those tires onto the car.. i bought my car used. it was a 1.5yr old car. the tires were all cracked on the sidewall.. threw those out and got some yokohama fleva to go on. world of a difference!!

    Proton CFE Manual Swap

    completely by passing the ecu and running a standalone will be impossible without hacking the cars CAN system. No one here i think will want to spend the time to do it as it may not be profitable later on. i have spoken to a few campro specialist they just say it cant be done and if really...

    the one thing i love about the type R is how they designed the suspension geometry. No torque steer, mechanical grip.. Automotive industry has come a long way from how they make power, to how the car turns.. brilliant!!

    Proton CFE Manual Swap

    thank you guys for your input, i think i may end up scrapping the idea of a manual box in the suprima. Unless i am crazy enough to dump probably 30k into it to rewire the whole car this is not gonna work.

    sounds plausible but need to know for sure before i go down this road. those cars that you have done before are they CAN systems? or analog? why i feel it will still be a problem is because these modern ecus are more intelligent, if there is a speed reading but the can systems see the tcu...
