Bumblebee,

A Putra extractor...quite a good idea. Might be thinking of doing that one day. Must keep finding more info b4 doing so. Anyway, currently I m using a Putra muffler and 2 Hot Bits mid section for a easier breathing....so I could say it is more powerful Approve

Will be doing a second stage modification soon.......

H.One,

Ur car is TCE? If not, I wonder why u want to paint ur car this colour....honestly, this blue colour sucks. Will tell u tomorrow after I look into the colour code. Anyway, if ur car is TCE, the worsyop will take out ur petrol cover, extract the colour combination and then mix the paint fort the right colour combination. I oredi took out the rear spoiler and installed side and rear skirting for my TCE. Looks lowered.

Wah good ar.. finally can be like wajarians ar...got club and so on. But can get visit to proton factory or not... get group discount when do things up... like acoustic shield.

Eh... hehehe installed acoustic shield already. I wan to say it is good... but har...hehehe... i dunnolar. Maybe feels good oni kua.

Anyway...u ppl mentioned changing gearbox... u mean the whole torque converter? My mec says the new torque converter is approx rm3k but did not ask whether with installation or not. However, repairing it depends on the torque converter. If heavy damage rm1000-1500. Most of the time is that range ler. They take it out and replace or repair whatever is rosak. My mec do so many in a month. Everytime i`m there sure got wiralar perdanalar...wah his workshop got at least 4-5 torque converter dismantled liao. Damn teruk case man like this. Surely one day my autobox will go one. This is soooo predictableler. A pakcik once change the autobox at 200k km. What mileage did u guys change the TC?

Mr. E, a 2` piping is not "too big" for your normal 1600cc car unless you only drive around 2k-3k rpm everytime. If you rev your car past 4krpm quite constantly the 2` does come into effect.

baldwin, tried my 1.6 0-100 before. only changed k&n air filter, muffler, turbo jet, re-con gearbox & with everything else remaining standard it took me just around 10 secs, maybe a lil less cos i timed the run 3 times and all 3 runs clocked 9.7+ with the best run 9.74secs. Of course, this is timed by my friends thumb on a chronometer so there might be a lil mistake in the time. Also, there was no wheelspeen as i only left the gear on `D` and floored the accelerator.
