Ken Block's New Whip

Last times, Ken blocks brought a lot of great stunts with his Subaru Impreza version 10. But now in 2010 , he will be driving the 'Monster World Rally Team Ford Fiesta' in the Rally America Championship and 2010 X-Games. Ken’s first appearance with the Ford Fiesta will be at the RAC’s first race at the Sno*Drift Rally this weekend in Atlanta, Michigan, as stated in the video below.

but i still prefer the Subaru Impreza though =p

Ported & Polished Head , Lighten & Balanced Flywheel Installed

Hi guys!

Still remember couple of months ago i sent another cylinder head ( 4g93T ) to port & polish (stage 3)? It's now installed. Now my new cylinder head is ready for my next project which is to replace the current camshaft with wilder duration ( > 272 ). Still thinking which duration i will suit me. Last time i think 272 degree of camshaft is enough for me but I'm wrong.... still thirst for power. lolx. Other than that, my flywheel cracked after hard driving and i have to change it. Now I'm using lightened & balanced flywheel. The car now is still in the workshop for some tuning & servicing, hopefully will get the car back tonight.

Today i almost fainted when my brother called me about the loss of his car. But thank god, he managed to find his car back with the help of his friends. The thief didn't managed to runaway with the car or taken out the engine performance parts but we discovered that the door lock and handle are broken. From the analysis, the thief tried to steal the car but the car automatically shutdown by itself ( just a hypothesis ). We were also lucky because the car stopped in front of a hotel and the hotel cctv managed to record the incident and the culprit face. Hopefully the thief will be captured by the authorities after the video analysis has been done.

p/s: praise be to god... almighty god for helping us.

New Intake Setup

Hi guys!
I already took out the standard air-box and replace it with a new intake ram. Picture below =D

kamikaze setup

Picture above shows the new intake setup for my engine. From butt dyno, all i can say that the torque at high rpm is much more better but something that i need to take care of is this setup is not suitable for daily driving since it might suck the unwanted things such as stone and so forth. As a precaution i already put some netting in my cold air intake to prevent stones from sucked into the intake.

p/s: for race use only.. lolx

Cusco Oil Catch Tank

Hi guys!
I'm in holiday right now so i have a lot of time to spend with my machine and this make my hands very itchy to buy stuff. I think i cant stay at home without doing nothing. So i bought an oil catch tank and DIY it at home.

the box

inside the box

It took me about 2 hours to install this oil catch tank. It looks easy but the hardest part is to find suitable place to put the tank. Since my engine bay is quite full, so i have to take out my standard air-box to fix the tank beside the fuse box. The oil catch tank looks better there than where i put it before ( beside power steering tank ).

the oil catch tank

Hmm.. Its an eyesore for me to look at the engine bay without the standard air-box. I prefer standard bay looks because i dont want to attract the authorities. They might think that i use the car for illegal street racing. LOL, just kiddin'. Do you guys spot the condition of my cold air intake? It is broken already! Need to find a new one as soon as possible.

Ignition Stuffs

Hi guys.
Last time i already use performance plug cables for my engine but i sold it to my friend since i'm in the need of money. After that i changed back to standard plug cables and i can feel that my engine response decreases (-.-'') So last week i ordered new performance plug cables for my engine. I made up my mind to choose plug cables from Bosch. Actually i wanna upgrade to NGK ignition wires but since my budget is tight and i need to buy 'other' stuff so i think Bosch Super Sport cables might be enough for me =p

The advantages of Super Sports Range:

+ Latest cable technology using inductive core for better performance
+ 100% silicone construction inner and outer insulating sheathing
+ Class F cables with superior heat resistance up to 250°C
+ Ensures high performance whilst maintaining peak voltage to the spark plugs
+ Exceeds International Standard ISO3808:2002(E) for High Voltage Ignition Cables
+ Excellent RFI suppression and electrical conductivity properties
+ High liner & tensile strength fiber glass reinforcing braid for longer life
+ Resistance to aggressive under bonnet conditions of fuels and oils

Hmm... Wait. Original Spark Plugs wont do wonders. So, i matched the cables with NGK Iriway Heat 7 Plugs =D.

Characteristic of IRI series

The IRI Series plugs are designed for tuned engines that require a high heat rating; they are Iridium Plugs with excellent ignition and acceleration characteristics

DIY it myself at home since it is very easy to do. No special abilities/skills needed here =p

Sorry for the images quality. I'm using my cheap camera phone. Glare from Sun-light spoiled the last pix. LOL. See you in the next post.
