R3 to release Proton Inspira-X

The release of new Proton Inspira is the hope for those who wish to own a Mitsubishi Lancer and a bit of a thorn on the side of those who already own a Lancer. There's no doubt that it's a good car; it's built by Mitsubishi so there's certain standards that it has to adhere to.

While bookings are already open, deliveries have not started as yet, but as soon as that happens, it will also mark the beginning of a culture that comes with the release of any new Proton model - modification.

So what we can do for this Proton Inspira? My guess is definitely would be the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X look alike bodykit to be fitted to Inspira.

Project Kancil: Some Upgrades For My Kancil

Went back to home town last week to get my rear screen repaired. Try to read my previous post here if you want to know what happen to my rear screen. My dad managed to source me the rear screen at only RM10 and thanks to him because of helping me to bring my car to the mechanic to have the screen changed and the labor charge is only RM30. It consider cheap because the work needed was way complicated as what I thought.

However, the workmanship provided is pretty good. So far still has not face any water leakage and of cause this is what I am not hoping to face anyway.

Project Kancil: Bad Thing Happen

Last week, my girl friend met an accident and her car faced a major damage on the left fender. So I lent my car to her and she parked my car outside of her condo. It was OK for the first few days but in the morning of 9th of Oct 2010 when I went over to drive my car, I notice that my rear screen was broken. Not sure what happen, suspected that some low can sons tried to break into my car but luckily nothing was stolen. Can't really source out a rear screen from halfcut shop, therefore I used a tape to tape it to secure it. What a bad day for me and stupid act by those idiots who tried to break into my car because there is nothing to steal (no meters at all) except the pioneer CD player which probably cost less than RM100.

Project Satria: Some update after accident

Long time never update my Satria after I met the accident. You can have a look on what happen to my car here. What I can say is luckily my car does not have any major damage except small crack on the bumper which is able to repair and front bonnet. Since I am out of budget that so I decided to remain my bumper and just changed the bonnet. The bonnet is Taiwan and it cost me about RM200++ and now my car is waiting for some nice paint job.

Anyway here is the picture of my car currently. A black bonnet with a crack bumper. I will send my Satria to do the paint together with my Kancil. However my Kancil is still pending on suspension upgrade, exhaust upgrade and a pair of HID for the fog lamp.

Comparing 20v Silvertop with MIVEC Blacktop

20v Silvertop is the engine head (top part) from Toyota Corolla Levin E-AE101-ACMZF 4A-GE using 4 throttles and semi intelligent VVT. MIVEC Blacktop is the engine head from Mitsubishi 4G92, the first engine that equipped with MIVEC technology.

20v Silvertop's head weight 12 kg, while MIVEC Blacktop's head only weight around 7 kg. Why is Toyota's head so much heavier? Here is the answer. Notice the 4 valves per cylinder versus the 5 valves per cylinder.
