at last, the long awaited day had finally arrived and i didn't mind driving 70km only to get both things installed. i brought my car to CM MOTORSPORT in Ipoh, near Falim traffic light as recommended by friends of mine. at first, i was told the labor charge(workmanship) could be around RM3++ but due to some circumstances, it raised to RM7++ and kept raising until the receipt finally did its job, RM1030 (total). haa it's a lot of money huh but what can i say? well here's the pics...enjoy!

I am about to buy a brand new tial mvs 38mm wastegate which will costs me around RM850 but due to current situation, i prefer buying it from a friend of mine who offered me rm850 (tial mvs + 9" exedy racing clutch). i got 2 things for one price but at the same time i am risking myself on its quality and functionality of aftermarket product. well it didn't bother me, i trust him. here's the pics:

i got WDB along with this type of wastegate already installed. at first i wasn't pretty sure of its functionality but i did some revisions (thanx wikipedia and other associated pages). it is used to regulate the maximum boost pressure in turbocharger system. hehe by defining in english, it is a valve which controls the pressure limit before entering the engine for combustion.
however nothing lasts forever rite? the valve (spring rate) didn't functions effectively anymore as i went boosting until 2bar before the intercooler piping which connected to the throttle body got loose. well it's time to upgrade for tial mvs 38mm i guess hehehe. good bye Nitto!

previously, i thought vtec LEV 15w-40 can solve my noisy tepet but after all, i knew it never did. it just reduced the noise for about 1000km only, so I moved on to eneos super 20w-50, recommended by Din, a foreman who owns a workshop in Gambang. he himself is a vtec believer, blue civic ferio with b18c in the engine bay. well thanx man, it's just better.

my car wasn't in a good performance for such a long period of time since the existing plugged in td04 is kantoi. it took me about a half year, wow its 6 months huh to get a bigger turbo to replace the old one. there are 2 options; either you upgrade (rm1200+workmanship around rm200) or get the stock turbo with lower price (rm800). i prefer to upgrade since lots of advice of "alang-alang" hehehe...welcome to the bay, td05!
it's been quite a long time since my last update for this blog hehe...however this post isn't about how busy i am, it's just about the super airflow converter(safc2) invented by apexi. hehehe finally i manage to own it myself!
well it is designed to squeeze more power out of your stock engine by adjusting the amount of fuel injected by the injector into the engine. it also enables you to get the perfect air-fuel ratio for better engine performance thru the combustion.
