cons of doing swap when u lack experience and you're not familiar with the workshop. because of this, i had to learn about cars. i had zero knowledge about cars before i did my engine swap. hahaha. thanks to @Izso and @vr2turbo and the other gangs for helping me build up my knowledge.

unless ur building a show car, would not advise you wire tuck. makes troubleshooting wiring issues more troublesome

just cabut that terminal, remove airbox then trace the wiring. if a lot of wires on the -ve, it's usually added for extra grounding. can just tidy it up

Wira update

Just now when I press my clutch suddenly there is a sound. The pedal suddenly drop down and didn't went up. When I open my bonet I saw this.
The clutch cable patahhhhhh. This is the cable I bought when I do the gearBox swap. Mayb I tekan too hard until it patah?

Luckily my clutch cable patah inside the shopping mall car park. If is the middle of the road matilah ini kali. Hahahahahahaha
Now waiting for my mechanic come and rescue me.

Is your engine noisier than other people's wira? If so, better to investigate source of noise rather than trying to sound proof it.
No lah,just want more quite only. Didn't have any weird sound. Juz the tepek sound a little bit loud when cold start other then that all running ok.
No white smoke,no weird sound

Other people's cable used for many years also didnt kacau. Just make sure they fit it properly. Could be improper fitting that caused premature failure. This is not something you want to be unreliable

Tappet sound loud? I dont think your engine is hydraulic tappets. So this mean they can be adjusted. Have your mech do that

Now switching to a new cable is more on the softer side compare to the 1st cable. Check & adjust to my specific already. Will test more and check is there still any problems.
