I din't plan on doing anything big to the engine on long run as this will be my daily car for quite some time. Don't want to do major engine mods to maintain the FC as it is already quite bad in the first place.

If so, I think I'll just do the whole piping from extractor to muffler at one go instead of just doing the extractor first. Perhaps more noticeable gains can be felt after that.

By the way, until now I am still unsure on what the bullet/midbox actually do. Can I choose not to use any bullet?



Like trying to emulate an unequal length extractor to mimic boxer engine sound. :rofl:
Actually mild mods will get you better FC if you drive it sanely haha.Your 4G15 is a carb, mmc or vdo version? My own satria's FC is great for a 3-speed auto even after modding, but it could be better.

Yeah the extractor would be a great plus. I might actually help your FC if you drive it efficiently.

Bullet/midbox are resonators, just one is oval and the other cylindrical. The shape of it changes the car's tone just a slight bit.

Of course you can... but it'll sound like absolute shit from the resonance haha. :biggrin:

It's hard to drive sanely when you have so much torque. :biggrin:

Mine is a MMC 5 speed manual. Which is why I always got tempted to mod it because people are always saying MMC is good.

You mean by just changing the extractor it would be a great plus?

So I guess bullet/midbox is a must to maintain a good sound.

You need to follow your nickname while driving which is sane. :biggrin:

Straight line pick up in open space ok lah, but not top speed in winding road......hhahhahahah:rofl:
Oh, even I don't want to ask anyone to try high speed at winding roads. Normally I just want to see how it feels during straight road acceleration. That one time when I was riding on Issuzark's Wira when he suddenly decided to turn into an almost 90 degree corner without warning. That gave me a shock as I was sitting at the back middle seat without seatbelts on.

The MMC has is the simplest most manipulative generation between all 3. I personally prefer VDO due to the adaptive ecu, but the MMC one at least you can tune it.

Yes. You try la then report back here how it's like haha.
