V6TT only gives u better respond overall, but it aint gonna be king of the road, alot tuned N/A can overtake u easily. And turbo engine requires more attention, is not recommend for newbies if u dont have enough time + money to take care of it.

If i were u, I take the normal V6 and maintain it well, since its a excutive comfort car.

U want madness n speed, get something else with smaller chassis n powerful engine.

Go for TT bro's...i'll bet u will satisfied with it. For me, this 6A12TT Manual is powerful yet comfort ride. Build for cruise n yet powerful. For me, 6A12TT is the king of highway...easily can tapau Evo 3 in top speeed...i've tried..:driver::driver:
The maintenance is all the same as V6 N/A..except got two snails (twin turbo) inside..hehehe


p/s: i already own 6A12TT-RS. Very satisfied with it..If u are a horsie maniac, put in Evo3 inside. No boundaries to mods n lots of cash also needed. But, i prefer a cruisie n sumtimes only just want to 'tarik-tarik'..dats y i choose 6A12TT. Very nice fitted into Perdana. The sounds also..6 pistons maa..damn good to hear..:biggrin:. Dis is only my oppinion bout the Eterna Twin Turbo..Happy Modded!

of course 4wd is illegal.. hehe.. v6 n/a got manual.. but u need to find the gearbox at halfcut la..

Eterna gearbox Now hard to find, i just bought mine for Rm3800. Damn regret never take the whole halfcut instead. Now many ppl jacking up v6 manual gearbox price, rather just convert the whole thing. But in the long run its worth it lah rather than having ur Auto Trany "Kong" often. After change Manual gearbox better Change exhaust system abit also, I didint change and the fuel consumption was only Slightly better than Auto, after changing to Less/no backpressure system it was better.

Just my 2 cents.

v6tt > Orgasm also kalah ! =D

Go for the TT but keep it standard.Will never regret.why most ppl sell their turbo car is because it's so heavily modded it's not reliable and fuel consumption is high.i'm driving a transplanted heart and kept it standard.no regrets.maintenance is normal oil change and weekly check on oils and radiator water.Put it this way.u want more power and u can't be the most powerful.it never ends.

just throw in a evo3 engine n that will show u the horsie goes up and lots of aftermarkets to install.but the cash flow is awesome ,if u prefer for real real turbo mod for perdana.While if u prefer for less FC maybe go for Eterna tt but V-tec or Mivec is kow kow tuned,i guess u say bye bye.V6 tt is recommended for cruising not for performmance anyway i own a pertdana EVo 3 and cost me around 15k for the transplant.me also seldom use my ride as i'm using my wifes viva hehehehe hope this will help u bro:smokin:

im used to drive perdana v6 auto..but now been converted to twin turbo manual..not much different in fuel and maintenance..actually fuel consumption is better than v6 auto.maintanance is the same..make sure u get the proper one.if there is concersion being made,make sure urusan jpj has been settled..power is gud.no problem u can whack evo 3..with stock twin turbo..just get power cut meter (pivot speed meter)
few things to watch..
if u want higher boost..dont go more than 1..and get a gud oil regulator,(sard )and fuel pump(walbro)
if u want more then 1 boost. u got to chage ur engine gasket to metal gasket..
and gud suspension system..
u will be the king in highways..
my best so far is 240km/h(taken from my pivot speed meter)

its depends on size and brand..there r few with 0.4 mm to 1.2 mm.its depends on ur head&blocks condition and compression ratio.a lot of brands from hks to no name..around 1k-3K..

If your'e looking for a workshop that can handle your engine conversion and upgrades in Penang, I'd suggest "Jaspal Motorsports" laa. Call Glen at 012 6365800 and check them out.

They sure know their stuff and hardware...

ahmad k...converting to single turbo, (AR70 turbine) costs approx rm10k, must as well convert to evo3, summore there is still market value if u wanna trade in your 6a12tt.

bro..nowadays many TT already convert to single turbo..u can go to piping specialist (Ijal Exhaust, Robert Exhaust etc.) for the single turbo conversion. It is really extract the true power of V6 engine..power band is more higher..but sacrifice a bit the fuel consumption...(u wan power lorr) :driver:

do u know the actual costs to convert to single turbo?
what i've noticed..battery already move to back. Then, more space to make anew alignment piping..if wanna save a bit, they just use aluminium stainless steel piping. A/R 60 turbine around RM600+piping will be around RM 3k-4k oni. Boosting 0.8bar oni..surely can reach 300hp easily bro..

if wanna big Hp then av to change n mods a lot of stuff la..standalone, forged piston, injector, etc.

p/s: but my fren just advise to use standard stock TD025, upgrade the internal and g/box ratio (becoz we wan the pickup to be better)...top speed??of course no doubt with V6TT...:adore:

just sharing my opinion bro..thx!
