Lol..... Sad to say bro, the Hot Inazma does nothing.... I have the Type MR installed. Bought it to try for fun. But nothing at all. Waste of money.

Now, my only hope is that it extends battery life.
Ya, I just want it to regulate the voltage smoothly.

Are you kidding? Those vs are over priced and are just glorified vs. even if they work how do you justify the cost of one?

Ya, is not cheap. Just hope to get one that does it job, ONly know brands like VS, Hot Inazma and Qmax which Leona Chin is using in her car.

These VS do not work. I am the inazma MR connected to my batt right now. Does nothing. Its just snake oil stuff. Luckily I bought it 2nd hand. Cost me around RM400.
Then what about Qmax, some can cost up to RM1K and claim by many it does improve performance and so. What's your opinion on this? I'm not sure but my mech told me after installed he felt the difference. Is either u choose to have more torque or more top speed. Choose either one.

Top speed is dictated by your gear ratios. Theres nothing you can do about that.

And i have a test vs that i wanna try on someone elses car. Come come

Like Izso said top speed is dictated by final driver ratio the important key is how fast your car takes to get to that speed. That is the point...faham SF?

Oh, my bad, I should have said, either low end power or choose high end power range for the Qmax.

IMHO, Qmax is not worth the money regardless of what it does. I have never tried Qmax before but the instant you said it cost RM1K, I would say forget it. Its a waste of money.

IF you want power, why don't you go thru proven methods?

Rm1k+ can already get a decent piggy back which can remap to get real power improvement and maybe even better FC at the same time too.

Agreed. Tuning will get you better FC and more power than any VS or whatever booster stuff out there. Its proven and it works.

Stock tuning would usually gives the best FC. Tuning can increase power for sure, but with FC at cost most of the case.

Oh hell no. Stock tuning is designed to run a little richer than normal to keep the engine from blowing up cuz of too lean. Stock is usually the safest tuning - not the best FC

Yeap, stock tuning most of the time is set with some safety margin in mind to accommodate the most driving environment with the most variety of driving habit, not necessarily the best in terms of power & FC. For example, Toyota Mark X actually will make slightly more power when tuned to a bit leaner mixture, hence at the same time also giving better FC (that is if you drive it the same way and not get carried away with the additional power though).

I've tried QMax before on the note I thought my car's FC is bad... RM300-ish last year to my potato 92p. Drove from KB to JB to Sing to JB to KB, before QMax, my SAFC2 shows my electrical system voltage is 14.2V, and my car FC is 14km/L... after QMax... more than 2000km traveled, nothing change. Seriously, not even the torq has some noticeable feel of 'powah!' to my butt.

On day 11th after installing Q-Max... went to the retailer where I bought it, returned it and exchanged (+ RM topup) for EBC brakepads...

I just improved my FC to almost 16km/l after swapping my open pod K&N + alloy air ram to the stock airbox + rubber ram (which also made my engine works at noticeable... cooler temp).

I guess is more of an aftermarket gimmick after all, they can openly claim on their box, improve FC, Improve Torque, Improve HP.
ON second thought, I agree that Piggyback ecu is better since the price is RM1K+ as well.

Just get a normal VS that is good enough to stabilize the voltage (That's the purpose of VS anyway).

anyone can claim anything about their product here because there is a big black hole of subjectiveness for a product to work.
some of these add-on products may work as claimed with bone-stock, factory tuned cars, but useless with cars that has been modded.

But one thing about QMax I can respect - their full refund policy if the user of their product is not satisfied, and finds out after adding 'the thing' on, it doesn't work. This is a challenge that every add-on product manufacturer should adapt.

Agree on this! That's makes it more convincing and buyer will feel secure to try it out.

that's why I agree to buy & try the thing in the first place, because I am not the sort of dude who are optimistic about these sort 'add-on' products unless there is a win-win situation sort of guarantee... especially in this since last decade... too many-many-many fake auto-stuff in the market. Think how 'stressed' we, the autopart consumers are, nowadays to find something that is safe to use for our car.... I know I'm stressed when walking into some 'performance parts' shop... hold a part and spent 30mins trying to find facts to convince myself... that would be worth my money, and won't toast my car. I've been through that dreadful moment with fake parts (after successfully tricking myself, IT'S OKAY TO USE!)... but no more man... tow trucks ain't cheap these days.

I even ban myself from visiting shops too eager selling fake parts. Stopping at those sort of shops just waste of time... I'd rather stop at the spa for some tomyam...

Hi guys, i'm not promoting this product or what but i've stumbled upon this so called properly done sheet on facebook by on of it's seller.

*For some reasons i've deleted the sellers contact,address and company name in order not to get deleted as advertising this item.



I've tried this product in my car with the seller sitting beside me.. result of before and after is = 0. I do not feel anything different..I've tried very hard to "butt dyno" a few rounds with him, but i ain't convinced.. so he was convinced that it doesn't give anything different to my car. But he change to saying it should save fuel for my car.. which i tell him it's ok, i give it a miss as the price is too expensive for me..

Later on, he went dyno using his car with this product to show the before and after results posted on facebook..
If i remember clearly, the HP indeed increased by 1.2hp and the torque i can't remember... After since, he stop pushing this product aggressively already.. :rolleyes:

Qmax products are very highly priced. They return policy can be a gimmick too. I have friends in other industries having these return policy. To them the percentage of return is very very small. Some are not bothered to do the claim, so it is beneficial to the company selling them....:smokin:

Low boost turbo increase fuel efficiency and more power too.
Low boost also still higher fuel feed over standard mah!....:driver:

Thanks ls2turbo. Your post confirmed my suspicions on the functionality of the firestorm. Im quite confident the device will have no effect on my wira. I am already using a plug cable that jacks up the spark power like how fs does.

But i still wanna test it cvkit. When free to meetup

You are wrong bro.

We are not and cannot stop anyone from cutting open the FireStorm. You are most welcomed to do it if you can find a donor willing to sacrifice the money they paid for it.

I already advised you guys to cut the Super model as it gives faster acceleration power compared to the Normal model. You can all then make a copy of the Super FireStorm yourself.

If I or the inventor are worried then we would surely discourage you from doing so. Not many in ZTH have bought the FireStorm and have not experienced what it can do but there are a lot of speculations. This is almost the same scenario as in the Chinese Cari Forum where a bunch of idiots there just made a huge hullabaloo over the FireStorm and claimed they uncovered what was inside the unit but they actually could not share the photo of what was inside when other members asked for the photos.

My customers in Lowyat have posted their testimonials of the positive effects of the FireStorm in their engine and that itself is worth much much more than what I could do or say by myself.

Thanks for your interest.

Cheers.

Would you be willing to make a bet that the FireStorm is just another ignition stabilizer utilizing capacitors to boost its voltage?

I'm game if you are. Name your price bro.

Cheers.

---------- Post added at 09:10 PM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 09:06 PM ----------



Smart, but not totally.

Would you put a wager on it that it utilizes capacitors to boost its voltage, current or frequency? This wager is open to anyone in ZTH. Hehe.

Cheers mate.
I not sure about other, me as my self I buy from chinese cari, I brought a super for my Almera, after 2 week test I had found that, I got extra few 20~50km even though there was traffic jams, about the Torque increase, I got no idea, But will be going to do dyno test after my exhaust and open pod from speedwork, I will proceed for a dyno test.
My self I put quite some trust into this product.

Yes bro Izso, i guess for those relatively stock car.. i can say you should have some good results feedback.. if for those like mine which already have a few other gadgets, i think the result aren't significant already.. So does is bang for a buck? You need to judge yourself.. some say it's fuel saving, some say it creates extra torque/hp.. If you think the result is worth that money spent, by all means get it.. but to me i'm not.. well that's me.. :biggrin:

Well look what i've stumbled upon again...

Ignition coil booster mod! - Benzworld.org - Mercedes-Benz Discussion Forum

One Lamborghini LP 560 actually installed it!? :hmmmm::hmmmm::hmmmm:

Kwai-los are more cerewet and would not so easily trust any Asian made devices that are so cheaply packed but if they say its good then it should be as they have better integrity. They would not snake around so much to get recognition or talk c*ck as much as in other forums.

I didn't want to post this Benzworld forum as most guys wouldn't believe those Kwai-los anyway. We have secured their trust in this product and that is why more and more of them are getting the FireStorm.

If a product is good or bad then then those who are intrigued or interested in it will soon know of it

Cheers.

Plugs short out due to incomplete burning and due to loose piston rings that allow engine oil to burn in the cylinder causing a coating of semi-conductive oil to short out the plugs.

Worn out plug electrodes are due to lean burning engine.

You guys should already know this.

yes this cause shorten the life of a plug, a friend of mine had some thing like this but well built and it cost alot too in average his plug shelf life is 10k mileage.

Yes, definitely. More powerful spark will cause higher wear on the electrode.

Thats why its much better to tune proper a/f and ignition timing. Advancing ignition give you same effect w/o any issues.

Just check out on how a more powerful spark can improve the flame spreading in combustion. Pulstar is one of them that claim their plugs allow fuel to burn faster and hence more power.

This is the same as igniting the mixture earlier.
