Exterior Updates

Hi guys!

For the past few weeks, I think I've been attacked by sticker bomb syndrome. I cannot help myself soooo...this is what i did to my R3 Stage 3 Front Lips :P

R3 Stage 3 Front Lips.. flat black in color....hmmm.... it looks dull actually.. gotta do something! 

some of the process .. measured the lips and then cut the sticker to the calculated measurements... using high quality vinyl with UV protection :) 

clean the lips from any dust etc.......

paste it part by part.. took 3 hours to finish this job....

Opsss.. before i forgot.... i also change my lug nuts to Rays Duralumin Lug Nuts. Very Lightweight if compared to stock lug nuts.

Other than that, i changed to a new set of tires. I chose Yokohama Parada Spec 2 this time. Good grip i can say :)

And below.... The final picture for this post. My new exterior look :) 

FUNKY and i like it... for now :P

Race-Tech Smooth Shift

Hi guys!

I have a problem.. which is,  everytime i shift between gear (especially on high rpm) , i always miss shift. This is bad!  ... so i searched through forums and articles of what can i do to have a better feeling when i change between gears. This are what i found.: change to a better shift bushing linkage kit and short/quick shifter.

Luckily in Malaysia, i can get it easyily since Race-Tech Produce this linkage bushing which is called Race-Tech Smooth Shift. So i guess why not?

the packaging....

The Race-TECH Smooth Shift is made out of top quality aluminum with Aeronautics quality T-6061 and CNC to the finest available clearance to eliminate excessive free play on the gear lever linkage.


another one installed !

Result? YES! It does do wonders! Better feeling during gear changes! Smooth shift and feel solid too. Recommended for those who are facing miss-shift problem ... like me :P The price is affordable. MYR110. Maybe next i will upgrade to short shifter... when i have the budget :P

Intake Upgrade : Skunk2 Intake Manifold

Hi guys!
For the past 3 months, I've been very busy with my work and i cant spend much time to write. Really sorry for that. In today post, i would like to share my intake project. I've been looking and collecting  parts for this past 3 months and yes, it did took a lot of my time since i need to make some research before proceeding with the project. I want this project to be like what i wanted. Thank god, i managed to gather stuff that i wanted. Pictures of the process below :

For this project,  i also decided to upgrade my fuel rail with a high flow fuel rail which is made by aluminium. Other than just properly supply the additional fuel needed for high performance applications and durability, this fuel rail brings out the bling factor ... of course :P

At first i would like to buy a new set of the intake but then i changed my mind. Luckily, i managed to find someone who wanted to sell off his engine, so after a lot of negotiations, i managed to ask him to sell his modded intake to me. For your information, the intake is made by Skunk2. It is designed for B Series application. So, in order to use this intake, there are some of the modification that is needed before it can fit perfectly. The previous owner use cut & weld method which means he cut the MIVEC intake flange and then weld it with the Skunk2 intake. This method will gives better flow and direct fit with MIVEC cylinder head. The intake has been sprayed with black VTEC rough structure.

For this project also, i decided to use thermal intake gasket. Thermal intake gasket acts as a barrier stopping heat transferring from the engine block through into the inlet manifold. Stopping this heat transfer results in a cooler inlet charge temperature and in doing so increases engine power. It has been proven so i think it is worth to try :)

Took out the standard intake manifold 

MIVEC intake manifold ... the design is much different from Skunk2. Skunk2 is designed to give better high RPM power and that is what i am targeting for...

Testing out the 4 throttle setup. Haha. Still under R&D 

Voila! The complete process! 

does look much better :) 

After a lot of test drive, i am very positive that this Skunk2 intake manifold gives much better feeling if compared to MIVEC intake manifold. No kidding. But i dont have proof to show to you for now. I will be on dyno machine again since this upgrade needs tuning to make it performs much better. Hopefully i will hit my target. We'll see.....

What Hybrid Is Truly About

I would like to share a quote which i think can educates us on hybrid technology:

Talk to anyone about hybrids today and you will end up in a discussion about fuel economy. While one of the key advantage of hybrid implementations today is good fuel economy, strictly speaking hybrids are actually about efficiency rather than just only outright fuel economy. Hybrids are about an improved, more advanced use of petrol/gasoline for transportation. It's about extracting the most energy possible out of the combustion of an amount of petrol/gasoline, and about the recycling of energy, which in normal cars, are simply 'wasted away' as heat during portions of our daily driving cycle. An understanding of the true concept of a hybrid implementation is critical for a full appreciation of their merits - Wong KN (Temple of VTEC Asia)

Intake :Think Out Of The Box

Hi guys.
Sorry for the lacks of update. I'm quite busy nowadays so it is very hard for me to find time to write something. I still remember lot of 4G9X  Naturally aspirated engine user especially MIVEC always complaining that performance parts for the engine is not that much if compare to VTEC and yes.. it is true.

What i admire about the 4G9X engine user is their spirit to build the engine to be as fast as VTEC so they keep on doing research and develop custom parts for their engine and i think it is very good for the motorsport scenes.

In my country, which is Malaysia, most of the 4G9X tuner here think that one of the performance part that is lack of variety in the market for the engine is intake manifold. So, they find ways on how to upgrade it with the parts which is readily available for the market. I think they are quite creative indeed :)

Below some of the picture of 4G9X series engine using aftermarket parts which originally made for Honda and Toyota :)

 MIVEC with B-series Skunk2 Intake

 MIVEC with H-series Skunk2 Intake

4G93 with Edelbrock Performer X Intake 

MIVEC with Edelbrock Victor X Intake 

MIVEC with 4AGE Toyota ITB Intake

Creativity is the key point of this post. I think you can already guess what my next upgrade is *hint. See you in the next post :)

Hybrid ; The New Way of Thinking

The world nowadays is focusing more on ways to save the environment. As we all know, one of the factor of air pollution is causing by the gas emitted from the car exhaust. It is very hard to stop it but we can reduce it. That's why more engine produce nowadays follow the 'Euro Emission Standard'. 

Since the technology nowadays is becoming more advance, we are now introduced with new engine technology. One of it is " Hybrid Technology". If we talk about hybrid car, Toyota Prius and Honda Insight come in mind. 

My brother and me are quite interested in this future technology and we think why not hybrid ? So, after watch and read a lot of reviews, my brother made up his mind to go for Honda Insight. Pictures below.


first modification : we change from 16 inch rim with Advan RG2 17 inch rim wrapped with Yokohama A Drive tires.

Interior, very neat and comfy.

meter clusters, full with all of informations such as colour changing speedometer (driving style), eco scoring (feedback of current and long term driving practices), driving cycle and cumulative lifetime performance.

the cockpit - simple yet stylish and educational layout. the head-unit offers USB jack so that we can connect devices such as Ipod, mp3 player, mobile HDD and USB memory readers. 

the high aero tail rear - increase visibility and aerodynamic performance

small displacement engine but equipped with electric motor. believe it or not this engine produce max torque of 199NM  (engine + electric motor). The power is transfered by CVT transmission system which help achieving perfect balance between fuel economy and performance by producing more torque with an infinite number of effective gear ratios. 

6-point front grill, halogen headlight


All i can say, this car is very nice to drive and the fuel consumption is very very very good. Kudos to Honda Engineers. Hope the hybrid technology will evolve so that we can see a lot of hybrid car on the road in the near future.

Matspeed Specification Camshaft

Hi guys!
Last week, i sent my car to install matspeed camshaft for my MIVEC engine. Actually this was an unplanned modification but since there was a promotion for this camshaft, i can say i  ' accidently' bought it. haha. Pictures below.

Took out the OEM camshaft... first profile 228 IN 232 EX ; second profile 285 IN 300 EX

Fresh from the oven. LOL. The matspeed specification camshaft. I forgot the first profile spec ( maybe around 25+ IN 25+ EX ) ; but the second profile 306 IN and 304 EX. 

almost done ....


After that, i straightaway sent the car for dyno since i requested them to set the camshaft pulley on dyno machine ( i chose dyno dynamics roller ). Thank god the money spent is worth it. I managed to get 10whp increase. Overall i can say this camshaft is mild and not that aggressive if compare with JUN. The car still idle like standard and the engine wont stall even when  i  turn on the air-conditioning. No "brup brup" ( yeah actually a lil bit ) sounds if you get what i meant =D. I'm so happy with the increase in power. Thumbs Up!

Improving The Handling of The Car

Hi guys.

Sorry for the lack of updates. Btw, After i did a lot of reviews on chassis strengthening and how to improve car handling, i made up my mind to do something to my ride. So, I chose front strut bar and rear strut bar from Ultra racing. Pictures below.

picture above shows the 3 points front strut bar. I choose 3 points because it will give better strength to the chassis and neutralize the shock impact transfer to the chassis.

more picture of the 3 points strut bar by Ultra Racing. 

On the other hand, the above picture shows the rear strut bar. I also insisted to go for 3 points design for the rear bacause of its advantages and reviews from some of my other friends who use this bar.

Beware, make sure the one you bought is original. Dont be cheated :) You can check the originality from the serial number on the sway bars.

After hard driving, i can definitely say that this bars are worth the money. My car handling feels much better and it feels so different. It is not just 'placebo effect' :) Thumbs up for ULtra Racing.
