Let's cool it, the old way

my pimped pic!

After searching for it for quite sometimes, I finally stumbled into this OEM cold air intake hose, normally attached with the proton saga iswara production cars from 1998 and below. The millennium batches were sold without this air ramp extension. No, it is not sold in spare parts shops. Have to hunt those earlier production cars. So it's quite rare, really. And not everyone really care about it too. Thank goodness. hehehe.

Tested on hi revs, the temperature remain stabil. So it doesnt affect much to the previous AFR setup. So it's good to go!

The best thing is, got it FOC. Thanks to that foremen. Thanks man!

By the way, this is how it looks like in the engine bay. Keep it simple. Keep it low! hehehehhhs

I guess it's local Enkei. It's hard to find a light 14" with a nice offsett these days.

Hiding The Rust

Well, seems like i got some free time. Dismantled my rear seats and this is what i found! :

it was rust all over!

Before it'll parasited even more, these are a few steps that i did to the rusty part. It was time for a DIY session!

Went to local hardware shop and bought a can of anti rust spray and a piece of sand paper.

After a bit of cleaning to the rusty metal, I sprayed all the infected sections. This is the end result :

There you go. Hopefully it'll slow down the process of deformation of the car's body.

Hug Me

oh, the previous seat spoiled at the tapak. so I bought this one, using back the original Iswara mountings. I wasn't left with much options, since I insist on using back the original tapak. It's a no brand seat, people call cap ayam one, ok lah, better than nothing, at least it's brand new.heeheheehe

Dry Grip

Still managed to find this almost becoming extint species. luckily, for 185/60/14, the price is quite affordable. I grab a pair.hehe

Photobucket

result: better traction. especially at corners and topspeed..ngehhh..BUT, only in dry condition! In the wet, have to be careful

Setup and Setup and Setup

well, this post is a bit delayed. just sharing what i've done with this almost a decade years old vehicle.

The AFR setup.

Instead of convensional method, which is turn the screw and use your hearing, this time the Innovate was used so that the appropriate AFR is achieved at every gear change. Failure to set the nicely done AFR setup may cause the failure to head gasket, in other words, gasket blown!
