hi CKeng,

It kinda doesnt make sense if the extender is before the TB (in between TB & Air filter). There's actually a formula / calculation to the length of ram airpipe from intake opening to TB (Browser Warning).

I have one TB Spacer, installed between the intake manifold and TB. The increase is very minimal. It's about the same price as LCP, so I say, LCP is a better choice.

I'm still on my stock airbox with K&N. oddly, my FC decreased compared to generic Tan Choong air filter.

Regarding the questions that I had another day about breather, this is a good article from a friend. (Crankcase Ventilation Explained - N/A Edition)

Managed to get Ken, thank you. He says BSR is good mod with little/no vibration, no need to reset ECU or whatsoever. I'll probably do this in a few month's time when I get my oil change interval :)


Thanks.

finally had BSR.. actually more like a chain cut done on the BS chain. couldnt remove the BS from the oil pan opening due to space constraint. felt no vibration , engine roars more during pickup and engine is lighter and ease when revving. totally recommended.

hi CKeng1,

It's been my fifth day since. No regrets thus far :) if you need a mechanic, let me know. I did this at Sri Kembangan which I think it's far for you. It took less than 3hrs (leisurely) to get it removed. I think it can be done under 2hrs.

Yes, got my cap ayam 4-2-1 header but rear mufflers are running at stock and still in a good condition.

Thanks.

Hi Caarzee,

I think my idea will be just cut off the chain and remain the cap, but this have to wait till my next service. hehehe

Trust me, get yourself a Stainless steel muffler from Matola, cheap and good, the 1 i bought is about RM 250 only (S-type inside)included installation, XT replacement model from matola is about RM 800++, , that guy is good in car mod, but the work quality is so so only. He is in kepong, i can give u the location.

Hi Samson,

I did the following when my exy turned 6th and before I went ahead with air filter and exhaust mods.

1) Engine & Throttle Body Cleaner (WTS : Best Carbon Cleaner in the Market!)
2) Engine Flush ([wts] Lambda Primer Set)
3) Engine Protection with Liqui Moly Ceratec (Liqui Moly Products)
3) Get a good engine oil, sparks, change ATF if you havent.
4) Grounding ([WTS] Custom made grounding cable)

** I am not related to these guys. I just find these are great products and they are doing an honest service/biz.

This may or may not help and it depends on individual car's condition.

Thanks.

I did use the above product, but different brand, a cheap brand earth cable from 'sister' accs shop, throttle body cleaner from spareparts shop, iradium spark plug, never change until now, and constantly replace the lub - shell blue bottle, ATF always is Matic D after every 40,000km..

If you really need some confident engine restore, send to nissan to clean up the engine treatment and throttle body clean + timing advance (FC increase a little).
