Are you comparing the 1st or 2nd gen. mivec ?.
i used to wipe GTI, Putra or even the ltd version of 1.8 (tiang gol)wira and even satria mivec (1st gen) few-few times before at highway with my mivec (2nd gen). I guess all of them should be in stock form la, so does my car.
Any comments guys?.

I am talking about stock Mivec manual against stock manual Putra.If Putra also cannot tapau....then Mivec is really a pussycat engine liao.

But not by much, and not very convincingly. You shift a little too early, or mess up the shift even a little bit, ie. drop out of high cam phase (this is actually very easy to do) the Putra's flatter torque advantage will pull level or even ahead.
I hardly call that tarpau-ing.

leakwoon .. you thinking of putting mivec ? ei put wei !!! then call me to check it out.. now full engine conversion 6-7k i think..(i can recommend you to a place)
and what's this i heard about a car with 1.8 mivec pumping out 200bhp on paper ? a normal B18C with some medium mods can pump out more than that easily.
