i have to disagree on this one pomen, a std auto tranny can still handle a mildly mod engine

by "upgrade performance exhaust", did u mean bigger pipes with straight through muffler? i prefer polishing rather den porting, there arent many workshop in malaysia dat does the porting process using a proper flow bench machine

hehe, a piece of advice, change to manual if u want better performance.

tested with a friend of mine, done all basic mods on his auto myvi like lighten crankpulley, airfilter, exhaust n some other bits n pieces, while my manual myvi is BONE STOCK, with stock filter, stock exhaust, stock rims stock absorbers (100% factory spec).

tested 0-400m, 0-100kmh, highway runs etc, my car wins by AT LEAST 3-4 cars' length every single time.

i have another advice for u bro. this might hurt a bit but its the truth n i'm sure many would agree with me.

myvi is meant to be a comfortable, slow, fuel-saving town car. so why not use it as what it was intended for? try saving more money, get a proper weekend car if u want to feel the need for speed. for less than rm10k, u can get urself a good drift car. u can go learn drifting which is so much fun! or if u have around rm20k, u can buy a satria turbo which is also fun and not too expensive to mod at the same time. plus mitsu turbo engines have virtually limitless power potential, depending on ur budget.

trust me bro, at the end of the day, when u have already spent more than 20k n ur myvi is still not fast at all, u will regret not buying another weekend car for that duties... plus ur myvi will still be an auto, comfortable, fuel saving car at the end of the day, serving u reliably anytime anywhere...

if ur parents bought u the car n they will not allow getting another car, then back to plan A hehehe

The intake manifold is made of some sort of plastic, you can't PNP it. So you'll have to custom make one if you want a bigger ported manifold.

Me thinks keep the auto GB until you really cannot tahan already then only change. Traffic jams is no joke in M'sia since it's also known as "the worlds largest carpark".

Change the returnless fueling system to one that has a return and add AFPR.

Skim the head and change to high comp pistons (some say the Kembara one is and can be used) and you got quite a runner there as it is.

1. there should be a local drift group at the place where ur staying. maybe u can try to approach the local drifters n i'm sure u will be able to learn fast.

2. hahaha not at all! most malaysian drift cars are serviced every 4-5months but drifted almost daily! the only real expenses are tyre expenses.

3. since its gonna be a weekend car, why not just buy EF? its cheaper n more low profile... if u want EK/EG, then its gonna be expensive la. i think for less than 20k u can get urself a decent weekend car that will be able to provide u with the fun.

thats what i did. i have a bone stock myvi for daily use n 2 weekend cars (1 for drifting n another 1 for highway runs). my daily travelling is not affected by the weekend cars' problems...
