Serious? Previous owner drive without problem or he/she park the car only. ?
The owner is much toward the ricer part hahahahaha. He only focus on upgrade the sound system & the interior of the car only. 1st time U go and check the car is below a tree with a lot of leaf on it.
Now the car is hell nicer to drive compare the 1st time driving.

I would like to ask a stupid question.

4g15 can slam a 4g93 auto gearbox in it?
Juz curious only since 1 is 3 speed 1 is 4 speed.
Sadly, u can't. it'll cost a lot to swap oso iinm. EDITS: after some research, reason is the 4 speed auto uses transmission control unit which is not compatible with the siemens ecu. maybe u can ask your mech if it's doable. if can, do install an atf cooler for the 4 speed auto.

swap 4g92 or 4g93 single cam jer. if got extra can go for 4g93 dohc, and BOT after that. hehe

Survey before.
Half cut 4g93 1.8 soch cost around RM4800
Installation RM1500
Total RM6800 is quite some money there.....
Even if I swap it they don't makan your old engine & gearbox is quite pain in the axs. Also need space to store it & sell it. I dunno why Johor halfcut quite mahal.

Bro KHNG940413, if you are contemplating engine/gearbox change, I have to ask you what's left of the old car which you havent replaced. What's left?

* Alternator
* Steering rack
* Drive shafts
* Power steering pump
* Exhaust system

What else ?

Didnt notice you were in Johor. But in my opinion, a 1.6 auto sohc and 1.8 auto sohc not much different. The 1.8 can get more top speed la but on average about same same jer. The dohc on the other hand is a different breed. Haha

Anyway, the 3spd auto on your 4g15 is good. Find a shop that does rebuild. Rebuild charge usually around rm800-1k for the 3 speeder.

and then get constant headache coz problem here and there. fix 1 issue, another 1 come up.
If you are just going for a dohc NA, i seriously doubt there will be much issues.

If going for stock GSR turbo unit, Sweelt's unit has been running trouble free thus far.
