Breaking News: Who lost his/her Proton Satria JDW8986?

Nothing much I will write in this post, the purpose of creating this post is to help the owner of this pity Proton Satria JDW 8986. Nowaday a lot of car stolen cases around due to our hard working thieves.They move around to spot for their target and unfortunately this pity Proton Satria is one of their target. From the pictures, we can clearly see that almost everything is stripped off except for the engine block and gear box. This is because the engine block got engine number on it and this make it difficult to sell off unlike those seats and other accessories parts.

Based on the information, this pity Proton Satria is spotted at the highway of SKVE heading towards to Kajang (before Hospital Serdang and  uniten/ilsas). For anyone who lost their Proton Satria, I hope that you can have a look at the car whether this is you lovely car or not. Please share this out guys!

DIY: Daihatsu Mira L700/L900 and Kelisa/Kenari Side Mirror Wiring

Another post for side mirror wiring but this time is how to install the Mira L700/Move L900 side-mirror. Perodua Kelisa and Kenari already came with a electric adjustable side mirror but there might be some out there who wish to change their side mirror to those JDM flip-able side mirror. This is good when you park at a narrow car park where you can close the side mirror to avoid it being hit by objects. This side mirror will cost you about RM350-450 depends on condition and whether it comes with the switch.

Actually the process of the installation is pretty straight forward where there is no fancy wiring needed. Continue to read the entire post so that you can have a better understanding on  how to DIY by yourself and this may save you up some bucks for the installation fee.

Project Satria: Installation of Intercooler Silicone Hose

My Satria's intercooler hoses started to give away due the poor condition. Thus it is time for me to change the hoses and I bought those silicone hoses on last year May. Yes, it was long time ago and finally this year Chinese New Year I got time to install them to my Satria.

The installation was pretty easy as almost everything is plug and play except the 90 degree bent at the right from front view. I forced to made another stainless steel pipe for this. After everything was ready, so the installation started by removing the front bumper and the intercooler. After that replaced the hoses with all the silicone hoses then followed by the intercooler and bumper. Start the engine and check whether there is any boost leak due to the installation been done. OK guys, let's check out the pictures I captured during the process of installation.

Project Celica: Car Detailing 2002 Toyota Celica 6 speeds Super Strut Edition

What normally a guy will do during Chinese New Year? Sleep? Eat? Firstly, I will clean up my room although I just staying in the room like about 5% of the entire year. Secondly, is to detail my cars. So for year 2011, I took 2 days off before Chinese New Year and I finally got some time to detail both my Satria and Celica. Anyway, previously I had posted a post about detailing my mother's kancil here.

Let's start with the Celica, it took me about a day to detail the exterior and the engine. By the way, this isn't a full paintwork correction detail, but more to improving the overall condition of the car in a limited time. ( I still got my Satria and a 19 years old saga parking outside the car porch waiting for me to detail them). The car wasn't too bad to start with as the paint of the car is still in good condition. However due to my busy workload, I have no time to wash it for about 3 months. Dust and mud are all over the car.

Monkey Wrench Racing 758whp 1.8L 2ZZ-GE Toyota Celica

This post is for those who own a Toyota Celica. Normally the impression of Toyota Celica is just a chick magnet where it got a sporty look but equipped with a low performance engine. However, MWR (Monkey Wrench Racing) from the state has came out a 700++ whp Toyota Celica to impress all the Toyota Celica owners. 

From MWR, they have switched over to E98 (98% Ethanol) fuel which allows more boost than the E85 they have ran in the past. Since this fuel requires a higher volume fuel system so it ran out of injector capacity pretty quickly and rather than risking running too lean on the top end MWR stopped the tuning at 37psi (only!!) and did not rev it to 9000+ rpm. Larger injectors are on the way so MWR able to turn it up a bit more and they are hoping for 800 whp. As for current setting, MWR is running on a 1.8L now for development because they have a plan to run our special 1.5L at Bonneville later this year to go after that record. Continue to read the engine specification after the jump!

Ferrari F430 crashed at Kota Bahru

To own a Ferrari is definitely a dream for car enthusiasts (I am one of them). However not every individual afford to pay a RM800k car. If I own one of it, I will definitely drive it slow to enjoy the ride instead off driving fast. To be honest, if I crash a Ferrari I will kill myself as I dare not to look at the bill.

Anyway, this above is just my individual view and the owner of this Ferrari has a different point of view. He enjoyed his ride by pushing his Ferrari but bad things always happen when you drive fast. The owner of the Ferrari crashed his car at Kota Sri Mutiara, Kota Bahru, Terengganu.

Car Detailing: 2005 Perodua Kancil 660EX

During the celebration of Chinese New Year, I finally got time to detail my mother's Kancil and both my Celica and Satria. Let's talk about my mother's Kancil as this is my sister's daily ride to work. Due to lack of caring to the car where my sister always park the car under the hot sun and never wash it since my mother's handed over the car key to her, thus the paint of the car is in a bad condition.

Started with pressure washed the entire car to remove all the dirt. Then I moved to wash the rim and tyres to ensure all the dirt is removed completely so that it will be easier for me to shine the tyres. After that I clayed it and waxed it to restore the paint back to it's glory. All the products are from Magic 101 and the wax is from Soft99. Yes indeed, all of these are cheapo brands compare to those who using Meguiars. Let's see how bad is the paint condition and the result after restoration.
