hello all. 1st my apologize to the admins should this topic has been discussed before. but, i hardly find any related and specific page discussing about our beloved Evo security. u can delete this thread and please forward me to the specified thread.
so, if u dont mind, why not we share ideas about how we can increase d security or anti-theft precautions as there are higher and climbing number of cars stolen in our country.
These are the some of the security from some people's advises: CAR SECURITY
- just a normal, not the expensive, as most people said it is useless to have an expensive one - available from any car accessories shop
2. Steering lock
- available at any accessories shop, a brand called OKLOCK is quite good in quality
3. Handbrake-gearshift lock
- found on sale from China, need to order in bulk, not yet found in Malaysia
4. Kill switches
(the more the better) - can be installed at any car electrical and electronics specialist/experts
5. Pedal lock
- the best is fully press the brake before arming the pedal lock. this will provide full brake force on all wheels, preventing the car to be moved, it is almost impossible to move the car, even though pulled with a tow truck - can find at Eneos 1 Utama, told by a friend
6. Safety tint on windows
- available at almost any tint shop
7. Adjustable tow hook
(can be plugged in or plugged off) - to prevent from towing - any idea how to do?
And some should we need to leave our Es for a long period of time:
8. Take out the ECU
- but at youtube u can watch the thief bring along all version of Evo's ECUs, the plug the ECU in and start the engine - DIY, but be carefull
9. Take out the spark plug cables, or even the spark plugs
10. Take out the battery
11. Captor system WHEEL SECURITY
1. McGard nut locks for wheels
- around RM500/set, or RM200/set @ Mudah.my, not sure whether original or not - refer to MLOC member Ixeo
Of course, these won't make our Es invulnerable. but at least, we can delay the steal as much as possible.
So, any of u do have any other extreme ideas that help to guard our Evo? Do share. sharing is caring! =)
