Wanna ask if I get a pair for these seat. Thailand replica one. Can I just fit 1 to my jazz 1 to my wira? Juz but different seat railing for different car right?
The seating position is very nice for me and the tight support is what I want since my leg is abit long.
You need to buy railing too and the railing will be expensive. Around RM400 for front 1 set not including installation. Try to find a secondhand RX8 good condition seats. One set front left and right around RM600-RM700 only, with railing. It is very comfortable, can adjust height too unlike the replica recaro you shown and its original.
Go try it out at any shop first see you like it or not. But its not as wide as the recaro, which is good for big size haha

Seats just need to find the right height railing and base. But need to be careful of the seats base height. Last time I had recaros taken from a vw and fitted it into a wira and seating was waaay too high. Needed to modify the base to be lower.

Incidentally a lot of these non ori seats have poor padding and can be uncomfortable after sitting long hours.

I have the acceleration time. Dyno need to dig out the graph at my parent's house. Torque around 19.88 kg-m if not mistaken.
That's pretty impressive stats. For a NA to have that much power means you did quite a lot to your engine? NA 1.8/2.0L engines need a lot done to break the 250hp except the K series which is considerably newer. Older design engines take a lot to touch that power level.

Your car interior stripped? What sort of specs do you have on your sentra?

My 225hp i already converted it to crank wheel power so I can compare to my original engine rated 204hp haha. Engine is stock but done full overhaul recently. Interior not stripped, like normal car with all spare wheel and tools inside. Maybe is due to my light chassis and fat torque from low end makes it accelerate fast.

Anyway i got posted a video of my acceleration too if you are interested. But the meter is slower a bit due to i'm running 16 inch rim, 16/50/195 tires. That video i got 5.9 seconds if according to gps

crank wheel power?

usually quoted at crank or at wheel... if both, means ur tayar pasang kat crank shaft ni

I'm more interested to see the dyno. Interesting how a stock 2.0 NA can get that high power. But 204whp does sound plausible but you're already in the region of the K20 which is muuuuuuch newer. I dunno la. Need to see - I have a feeling you're hiding some secret you're not tell us. :biggrin:

No la dyno is on wheel. Then i just +20% estimate then come at crank d lo. I see myvi 1.3 manual also lost around 22% when see at the wheel hp
20-22 is quite alot.... if x salah for fwd the usual is 15? i could be wrong

could it be the tcf calculation? but still at 1.15 thats round 215...

dyojet nums kot?

Others are minor mods like exhaust and pod air intake. Actually i think my dyno can go up higher because my exhaust piping is 2.3 inch, but muffler outlet is only at 1.7 inch. From research my engine loves 2.5-3.0 inch. 2.5 inch gets overall better power, 3.0 inch gets higher peak top power. Just last month i changed my muffler to 2.3 inch inlet, 2.5 inch outlet already but havent tested best acceleration time nor do i dyno it. But after this can feel like better acceleration? Not sure butt dyno correct or not.

And yes previous dyno was on dynojet. I took 20% off after looking at other manual stock car dyno is around 20-25% lower than advertised hp. Actually dyno numbers not so important as different dyno machines might give out different numbers, i more interested in real world acceleration time haha

I look at his previous dyno on manual stock cars. Most whp are lower by 20-25% of the advertised hp. Thats y i only add 20%

hehe, imo these numbers thing, no real matter, long as the owner's butt dyno syok, thats all that really counts.... that said it is nice to have the chart... maybe when im less busy ill slap my car on a dyno also

Yup as long as we happy haha. My dyno graph very smooth one. Me very like but vvl open higher up at 6500 rpm like that. If open at normal 5500 rpm, will have a dip at the graph then only increase back.

Exhaust setup won't increase much... probably around 5% which is noticeable on paper je..peak torque/power remain about the same, probably response on the graph might be different

Imo..Century acceleration time only useful at drag strip and traffic light/toll je for daily usage...overall performance matter for daily drive.

I send in dyno for base figure, engine check, and how's it's power/torque graph..then from there I decide which mod should I go for, setup my shift light, rev limiter and etc

Ps: knowing your car capability, you know which car you can play with and Which car you need to give way

which car? :laughing:
car 1 is dead... i duno what to do~ got to plan a budget to bring it back, this one dyno confirm 0 hp
car 2 seems more or less ok for now.... this one dyno, hopefull ade more than 220 on wheel (keep expectations stupid low, and you will be happy)

Unlike other NA cars, this neo VVL engine gain quite a bit with bigger flow exhaust according to nissan forums. Sweet spot for daily drive is around 2.5 inch apparently for overall gains. Peak hp go with 3.0 inch. Average getting around 10-15 whp extra with just bigger flow exhaust system, not even touching the exhaust headers or manifold intake yet. I read this in the SR20forum last time.

Also the dyno guy told me my exhaust is restricted with 1.7 inch when I dynoed it last time. Fun fact, with the 1.7 inch muffler, I try test with silencer so it became 1.3 inch. Previously my intake got nice induction sound at certain throttle, with the silencer on, even the induction sound missing already. Which can only means 1.3 inch is definitely too restrictive until can reduce the air intake.

forgot to ask your car is manual or auto?
