My special order from the Land Of The Rising Sun had arrived!



Cusco Mission oil 75w85 GL-4 oil for my gearbox with Cusco LSD. Hopefully with this it will be silky smooth. Need to wait for my MIVEC gear ratios to arrive then I'll pour this in. This oil pretty much does not exist in Malaysia, even the official distributor here does not bring this oil in. GL-4 rating for FWD gearboxes with brass synchros.

RHDJapan is an awesome place to buy legit stuff from Japan by the way :beer:
wow.. how did you manage to ship this at a reasonable rate? The whole carton is yours? Sell me one? :biggrin:

6 bottles + Fedex Priority was only RM640 or so, roughly RM106 per can. Locally here people selling the other Cusco LSD oil at RM200 per can of 1L lol.

And why you need this? You're an RWD means you can use basically any LSD oil in the market with GL-5 rating. This oil is rated GL-4 specifically for FWD gearboxes.

The poison is strong with this one :laugh:
Poison for what? I just share the happiness :burnout:

Also, now i suspect my clutch master pump got problem, few times happened the clutch pedal biting point just dropped.... gahhh more time at the workshop

Nehh, I'll buy just enough for myself, because if I buy too much will catch the attention of the kastam.... And yes it's cheaper to buy from Japan than from the official distributor here

Kinda makes me wonder about fans and stuff too. Perhaps I could get an aftermarket fan cheap too.

That is why Tesco and Aeon Big can sell their oil so cheap, but lately Tesco no more.....:dontknow:
Lolz don't dare try oil from unknown sources. Then again I read before international forums people using Tesco oil they say not too bad, but not sure our Malaysia Tesco oil sama with overseas Tesco oil anot, and they don't have the viscosity that I want anyway. I actually tried it once, feels ok to me, but coincidentally while using that oil my engine broke down, piston lubang from engine knocking so oh well....

Anyway, some updates!

Just bought a pair of Evo 3 front brake set with disc and calipers, truly plug and play with the Waja knuckle, no modifications required other than prying the disc cover thingy slightly since the discs are slightly larger. RM450 only including postage from Terengganu, a price I could not resist! Finally I get the brake upgrade the car deserves haha




Evo brakes on the top, my stock Waja brakes on the bottom


Before:


And now



Just wish the brakes are slightly larger though, the discs still does not fill up my rim as much as I want to, but oh well, can't complain too much I guess considering they were from the early 90's.

Also, my clutch was feeling weird for the past month or so, sometimes the biting point will just drop. Checked around and found out my clutch slave pump was leaking fluids, and since the fluids was all black and dirty from worn seals, and my master pump was also a couple years old, i just terus changed both one shot, cost for the parts is just RM200 including a bottle of brake fluid so might as well, at least I know my clutch system is in tip top shape. After installing and bleeding, the clutch pedal does feels smoother than before.

Some updates,

Just bought some sweet MIVEC gear ratios. With this now my 1st-2nd gear shift would be much better hopefully.


My current ratios are like this, 8400rpm drop to 4565rpm on shifting from 1st to 2nd gear


With the MIVEC ratios, from 8400rpm to 5326rpm , much better than 4565rpm lol


Also, just a few days back on the way to work I boosted slightly into 3rd gear and right after lifting off, I have no power steering nor aircond compressor, reached work and found out the tensioner pulley had somehow came loose, so used my company tools and fixed it when I reached work. Cannot tahan weyh drive home without power steering or aircond :laugh:

Wah! nice woh, everything aviation stuffs......
Pinjam from kerja jerr, I wish they were mine haha

Anyway, some updates, car came out from the workshop already and am very happy on the work done so far. Changed my 1st gear ratio, so now the gears are closer, makes 1-2 shifts much nicer, but starting off bogs the car down more now since the 1st gear is longer, coupled with my long final drive makes it even worse. Also swapped the LSD from the more aggressive 45deg cam angle to the lesser aggressive 35deg cam angle. Poured in the Cusco LSD oil I purchased from Japan and damn the LSD works superb now. Everyday driving improved tremendously, the diff feels like a standard diff now in the sense that it does not chatter but will still lock up when there's enough torque. Should've done this since day one!

Swapping the ratios, alot more complicated than it seems




LSD NOT in the 45deg cam. The 35deg cam is not seen in any of the holes.


How your gear synchro engagement teeth is NOT supposed to look like....


Cusco oil mouuu


And right after the car came out, my monoblock died. hopefully it can be fixed, trying to fix it now




Bonus video

Also took the opportunity to overhaul almost completely my aircond system, changed the cooling coil, condenser, expansion valve and receiver dryer. Now the aircond is super cold even in extremely hot afternoons. About time I gave the aircond system an overhaul considering it was 17 years old already....
