He juz poison me but I amute to it.Hahahahaha
Now I juz wanna switch a new muffler (deep tone n not loud type)& extractor(stainless steel one mayb? Or even full set?See how budget go)
and I am juz sort of finish? Or isn't?Hahahahahaha
Brake upgrade also inside my consideration (upgrade steel hose &slote rotor)but juz slowly bit by bit mod as limited budget.
Hmm..

Come KL. I poison you with non-turbo cars. Later you change your Wira to Honda.

Brake hoses aren't always necessary unless yours expands. If you got time you can play with cable tie DIY.

Meh... b18 or bigger for the win. Jom.

Also the reason why people change to steel braided hoses is because rubber hoses after a while softens and can expand which makes the pedal feel very spongy. So our very own Johnsonlam from ZTH a while back came up with the idea to cable tie his stock rubber hoses to stop it from expanding. Very shortly after that a zillion other people on the internet started doing the same thing. I don't know who started it all but Johnson was one of the first in ZTH to do it, maybe even Malaysia.

Check along the whole exhaust piping, there are heat shields spot welded on, along the way. Maybe one of them, a spot came loose and vibrating. My Chery SUV had that problem. Initially thought a piece of Cat Con internal broke loose and jumping inside the cat, but later jack up the car and start the engine, found the heat shield vibrating....
This just gave me a good idea thanks.
My car has weird vibration thin metal clanking sounds when I go about 2400rpm. Before and after has ntg

Oddly the brake hoses soften and become very flexible. Stock brand new it's very very hard and strong. Maybe it's just the way they are made.

wahseh.. this engine is quite good too but like you said - support Honda is still king. But another thing is the SR20VE is super rare la.

The sr20ve 20v is super rare, the normal sr20ve is not too rare la. I saw 2 units of the normal ones at halfcut shop last month.

I have the sr20ve 20v in the light weight sentra b13. After tuning with piggyback got around 225hp. Best time 5.8 seconds zerotohundred.

That's a pretty huge claim. Stock engine? Got dyno graph? Whats the torque like?
