Project Kancil: Silicone Induction Hose for Mira L502 JB-JL

After a long updates of my Europe trip and now is time for me to plan something for my Kancil. I believe you will sure wonder that why I keep on update/modify my Kancil but not Satria and Celica. And I tell you this is because I prefer to finish up one car and then to the other cars. This will not make my cars like half way modified.

Ok, still scratching my head what should I do for my Kancil before I popped the hood and realized that the induction hose is starting to give up. And this is what I plan to change next, a silicone induction hose from JASMA. Why this brand? First of all, SAMCO is not producing any silicone induction hose for L2/L5. Secondly, I wanted to try out the reliability and durability of JASMA products. Thirdly, price is affordable. You may wonder, why not go for stainless steel piping? Simple reason, I drive this car daily and I have no intention to further up boost or modify it. So silicone hose is more than enough to handle the air flow pressure from the air filter to the turbine. Besides that, stainless steels ain't cheap nowadays. Sigh...

Anyway, stop the crap here and just have a look at how bad of my current induction hose condition. The rubber is breaking up and you may notice that there is some tape around to hold the hose breakage.Stay tune with me for the DIY post.

Hi,

I will try to finish it up as soon as possible and write a post about it.

Ben

Hi Zack,

Sorry to miss your email. I already sent you a mail about the location of the halfcut shop.

Ben

Hi Ben,

Got your mail, I have a query here - is it true that the parts will cost more if compare to KL/Klang? This is what my friends told me, so I am hesitating to go there, if the price is much more expensive..

Maybe mention your name will got special price?
:-P

Hi Zack,

Not necessary. Some of the parts will be cheaper in KL/Klang and some will be cheaper over here. Have you try to call Mun Lee in KL?

Ben

Hi Ben,

Yup I do checked on the price on Mudah and other forums as well, price is as you mentioned..

Oh ya do you know whether the L9 side mirror, its cermin is it replaceable? I come upon few sets of side mirror selling quite cheap, just that one side of the mirror already pecah..

Hi Zack,

Not pretty sure whether you can get the original replacement mirror. But I believe you can replace it by using kenari mirror.
