NRG Quick Tilt

Greetings to all!

Nowadays, we can hear or read a lot from the newspapers , websites etc about car theft. Just like last time, my brother's car nearly get stolen at his workplace. Other than that 3 of my friend's car ; mostly souped-up Proton Satria GTi and Proton Putra, had been stolen away by the thief and 2 days ago, once again, one of my friend lost his beloved souped-up Proton Wira c99. Hmm... I think it is time for me to invest some of my money for safety.

Yesterday, I went to a performance parts store which nearby my area to look for steering quick release. At that time i was just looking for NRG quick release like what most of my friend use but then the store owner showed me the new type of quick release system which called 'Quick Tilt' and it is design and produce by NRG. Pictures below.

how it looks like..


safety and easy access

According to NRG, This 'Quick Tilt System' allows driver to easily get in and out of the car. This works especially well for cars equipped with racing seats since it can be a pain to get in and out from under the steering wheel. This system allows the steering wheel to tilt up in 1 motion. It also comes with a lock to secure the car when the steering wheel is up. Unlike the quick release system, you don't have to find a place to store your steering wheel, nor is there a need to take it with you.

New Intake & Throttle Body Setup

Just took the car yesterday and as promised, here are some of the picture of the new setup.

As you can see from the picture, the coil pack is now on the rocker cover. At first i didn't like it but after hours later, i think i can live with it =p. Well, enough for the cosmetic =p. Lets talk about the engine improvements. So far after test drive, i can really say that the engine pull harder, better and lighter at all rpm and it becomes sweeter after the rpm meter past 4500 rpm till redline! This is absolutely better than my previous setup ( 4g93T intake + 60 mm throttle body). No kidding! I'm so happy with it and the money i've spent after-all is worth it! Thumbs up! So once again, my mission accomplished. Wait for another project guys!

Intake and Throttle Body V2

Just a quick update. i went to see how the intake and throttle body look like after the modifications. I can see that there are still some adjustment to make before the intake can really fit with the cylinder head. So far, all i can say that the job is nicely done by the mechanic. I'm really happy with it. Some pictures for appetizer below :D

Hopefully i will get it installed by tomorrow. Stay tuned readers!

New Oversized Throttle Body

Hi guys.

Sorry for not updating this blog because I'm quite busy nowadays. Still remember about my project which is to hybrid the Honda's intake to Mitsu's engine? Well, yeah. The intake is now finished. The only problem is i haven't install it in the engine yet =p. Last week and this week, I'm very busy with my schedule and other than that, i hold my plan to install the intake because I'm waiting for my new oversized throttle body. Just received it yesterday after a week of waiting. I chose to buy new billet throttle body from Super90. The size varies from 65 mm to 80 mm. If I'm not mistaken, 100 mm also available but i think i need to check back from their website. Well for my setup, 70 mm is more than enough. Bigger than that, it is overkill for 4g93. Btw, pictures below.

I planned to install it together with the Honda's intake since it will be much more cost effective =p. Doesn't have to pay twice for workmanship =D. So what's the use of the oversized throttle body? Well, from others experience, and from the info that i collected from the net, it can improve throttle response, gives better acceleration and more high end output. But please bare in mind that bigger is not necessarily better. It depends on the engine specification too. For those running on big overlapped cams/turbocharged or supercharged, this will be a supporting modification to help the engine sucks more air into the combustion chamber for better power. Just a simple explanation from what i know. Maybe you can have a better idea if you search more info bout the pros and cons of the oversized throttle body from the net.

Till then see u in the next post!
