tps retard should be turn left (CCW)...

unker when wanna bring me go flash??...
i think retard is anticlockwise..because when i go clockwise to the maximum the throttle body butterfly valve also start to open..no need to piggy2back.. :)

Bump:
if tps retard, distributor advance or retard??
when i turn tps retard, car is just like jerking most of the time, an increase in torque i think, so i retard the distributor..because when distributor retard, it brings down the torque..

how much is ur budget for the cam?

if 1k++ then go for matspeed/powerzone, if lesser than 1k, pipercam....ive used pipercam, power increase is linear, pulls more to redline compared to stock but feeling is a bit flat....now using matspeed cam, more of a kick from mid to top end, powerzone, donno hehe never used

i've been planning to install a hi-cam as well..but some people say when install hi-cam, low rpm range will sucks..my cam now is standard, and the power kicks in somewhere at 2500rpm..if i install hi-cam will the power kicks in later, let's say 3500rpm? and if i install hi-cam, will i need to step harder on the accelerator in order to reach the 'power kicks in' rpm range or just step like i usually do but the engine will rev itself to the 'power kicks in' rpm range? need to clarify this..i don't want my car to be a stressful ride when driving in the city..it is where i dwell most of my motoring life..

it depends on how u tune the cam timing.

a long duration cam (or what u ppl refer as high cam) widens the powerband and we use the adjustable cam gear to shift the power band for better driveability.

yes.. the low end torque will suffer a bit.. especially u will feel your car a bit slower to move from stationery.. especially on a slope. If u get the cam timing right.. it wont affect daily driving much.

matspeed..yummy yummy. kan tofu

afmarshall, when u say hi-cam, how hi? if 275 deg below(i still consider this as a mild cam), then dont need to worry about idling and driveability for normal road use. Hi-cam (292,304, etc) will produce hectic idling, no a/c etc = not really suitable for street use anymore. but what u'll get in return is a leap in hp and power at hi rev but sucks big time in lower rpm.

when will the power kicks in, well, that's when the ACP and a good tuner comes into play.:burnout:

with the matspeed cam, u wont have problems in traffic, or any regular driving

pipercam is about 1/2 the price of a matspeed cam...if i were u i wud wait a little while longer to save up the other 50% for the matspeed cam, no regrets, no rush ma hehe

pipercams are actually quite mild, installed in mine...so far no problem,

surprisingly the fuel consumption remains the same

this towkay must be selling piper cams

if u have rm5xx and must have a racing cam, then piper cam is the only way to go, since no others available at such a price

i have used both, got nothing to earn from giving testimonial, up to u fellas to decide who is giving BS :driver:

daily driveability, fc, hillclimb, downhill, sideways, upside down, no problems with both cams

where it differs is mid to top rpm and price

the matspeed cam has noticeably wider cam lobes even though both is of 272 degree duration, sky has measured it or something, and it is not to spec

bah i sound like a broken recorder hehehe

yah...i think pipercams should be in the region of 268 only lar...not accurate, not 272 ler

Bump: josephlauby: that would be 12.6+ per liter, should be alright

currently my iswara 1.5(carb)(m) clocking at about 12.75/liter all the way puchong jam to Kelana Jaya(6 days a week)

my wira 1.5 $EFI(A) can only do 11.3km/liter,

just depends on ur goal
