Project Kancil: Halfcut Mira L502 Auto

Went to hurt for halfcut at Bukit Minyak and finally able to look for something that is within my budget. The halfcut that I took for is from the Daihatsu Mira L502 which equipped with a JB-JL 660 Auto 4 cylinders 16v turbo. Thought taking the L200s and the price for it is way too expensive for an old engine. Therefore decided to take a newer engine and hope there is no extra care for the problem that always faced by an old engine.
Why I am getting an auto tranny instead of the manual tranny. First of all, it is cheaper. Secondly it is for a daily drive car and auto is a best suit for it. Besides that, my girl friend does not know how to drive a manual tranny car. When I wish to drive manual and want to get something big from this tiny engine, I can always change the Kancil manual gearbox with the auto gearbox.

Mitsubishi Gearbox Information

Here is another useful information for Mitsubishi gearbox users. This is a very useful information for those who wish to know more about their Mitsubishi gearbox. This information is for the gearbox made by Mitsubishi from 1992 until 1996.

Mitsubishi Engine Alternative Stroker Kits

Thinking of increase your car engine to a bigger displacement? TOMEI stroker kit is a good product for a 4G63T Mitsubishi EVO engine which increase the displacement from 2.0L to 2.2L or 2.3L. However, TOMEI's product do not always come cheap and which this is a burden for a car enthusiast like me. Furthermore there is not many stroker kit available for the 4G93T from a well known manufacturers.

Therefore, another alternative method is like something that how Honda's enthusiasts did to their engines. For example, increasing a B16 to 2.0L by changing the block to B20B from a Honda CRV. Another example is the K20 engine from a 2.0L to 2.4L by using the K24 engine block from the Accord.

I have a good information here to share with all the MIVEC first and second generation users. Having a gearbox number and do not know much about it and wonder whether your gearbox does have LSD? Or wanted to know more about the gear ratio of every gear? Here is the information about the gearbox codes, ratios and factory LSD models for both the Mitsubishi Mirage Cyborg CA4A and CJ4A.

There are more changes from 1998 models but that really only effects 5th gear. At 100kph the in fifth the revs a 200rpm higher in the 1998 spec boxes.

Project Celica: Maintenance Frameless Wiper Blade

Are you as conscientious about your windshield wipers as you are about your car's engine? Worn wiper blades are dangerous. Because 90% of your driving decisions are based on a clear, unobstructed view of the road, it's a critical safety concern that your car's wipers provide you with the cleanest windshield possible.

Had a check on my 1 year old wiper blade and found out that it was already worn out. Therefore it is a good chance for me to try out my new product - frameless wiper blade and for detail information both are measured at size of 16" and 26". The installation of these wiper blade is very easy and it only took me less than a minutes to change it.
