Title: Do's, Don'ts and FAQ's
Post by: speedyfix on January 27, 2004, 05:55:52 PM
hopefully this is of some help in reducing the number of repeated threads on the board  ;D

Suspension:

1. Do invest on a good brand of lowering spring
   Don't clamp, heat or cut your stock coils
2. Upgrade to a set of KYB (or other brand) gas shock for spirited driving
   Upgrade to high performance shocks (koni, bilstein) if you will be using the car on the track
3. Tukod is a matter of style but handling may be twitchy on normal roads because of increased height in the rear.
4. When you hear one noise in the suspension, fix it before kumalat. Suspension damage has a rippling effect and once one thing gets busted the rest are probably soon to follow.

Engine
1. 4-1 headers are primarily for top end power (high rpm)
2. 4-2-1 headers will give better power in the low to middle rpm band
3. mandrel bent anything is better than crush bends
4. piping size depends on the displacement and mods you do to your engine. Consult exhaust specialists (ERL, Freeemuff, etc) for the correct piping diameter for your car.
5. chambered mufflers are quieter than straight through designs but may be more restrictive
6. scab can be used for race or for daily driving depending on the resonators and the tolerance of your ear drums.
7. Noises are hard to describe on the net. Try and bring it to a mechanic to have it checked by them but please do get a second opinion. If the 2 opinions concur, have it done at whatever shop you feel more comfortable with, or that gives you the best value for money.
8. performance modifications do not always increase the performance. when upgrading your engine it is important to chose the correct parts that will compliment each other. (i.e. pick the correct cams for your computer profile. )
9. Turbos are not high-maintenance if the kit is designed well. they are expensive.
10. building a strong all motor engine will most likely be more expensive than building a turbo engine that can make the same power.

Ignition
1. High tension wires are all but useless in the most souped up rides.
2. High tension wires are mostly for aesthetics so chose the color wisely
3. blaster coils don't do much either
4. iridium, 4 tip and other fancy shmansy spark plugs work if you have a modified engine (more than just the IHE). otherwise, stick with stock plugs and replace them periodically.
5. spark plugs are cheap, replacing them improves the cars performance, gasoline milage and response

Oil
1. Oil lasts 5-10T kms or longer depending on your use. Change mineral oil more often than semi synthetic and fully synthetic.
2. spirited/track driving necessitates synthetic oil. normal engines with normal driving characteristics will make do on regular oil
3. check the viscosity of the oil recommended by your manufacturer. try and use something like this or at least very similar to it.
4. check the color and smell of the oil. if it's super black and smells burnt then it's probably time to replace it already

Tires & mags
1. do get the correct offset for your car.
2. don't get tires that are 2 wide
3. ad07's and azenis sport are currently the best all around tires on the market in terms of grip and durability
4. learn to read the tire info on the side as to the treadware rating, speed rating etc, this will give you info as to how the tire will perform. www.tirerack.com is always a good source of info.

that's it for now :)

Post by: lantraluvr on January 29, 2004, 03:34:22 PM
Can I add some?

*When you experience a rapid deflation of one of your tires, slow the car down gently, not rashly!

*When changing your tire, block the wheel diagonally opposite the affected tire...

*Use jack stands if you are going to raise the car up for an extended period of time.

*Warm the car up after starting a cold engine. A minute or so is enough, I guess.

*Cool the car down after a long (or even short) drive. A minute or so for NA, 2 minutes for Turbo IMO. Helps getting a turbo timer for this purpose, even if you don't have a exhaust-driven compressor.

*Use the cheap unleaded fuels for your vehicle unless the manufacturer requires it or if you have extremely modified your ride.

*Observe the PMS of your vehicle, even if it's past warranty...

*Don't drink and drive. Don't eat and drive. Don't text and drive. Avoid distractions while driving, period!

*Don't drink alcoholic beverages, then drive. Drunk driving will lose you "pogi points."

Uhhh, thats it.

do always check springs for the proper spring rate for your application.

do use short struts for lowered cars as to have a unbiased dampener movement
Title: Re:Do's, Don'ts and FAQ's
Post by: Leepu Awlia on February 02, 2004, 08:15:33 AM
Do keep a notebook in the car and write down all the things youve replace and done to it with corresponding date and mileage.
This invaluable in keeping track of your progress and keeping a history of the car.

Did you know that if you have an A/T and you suffer an overheat, that you run the risk of damaging yout tranny too?
Thats because most modern cars have a tranny cooler hooked up to the radiator.
If you encounter overheating and you have an A/T, dont push it. pullover and stop driving it or youre gonna end up with a fubbared engine and tranny at the same time.

do's...lower your car and be happy as it is... do's... do be happy and content... don't come complaining that the ride is bad or nasisira suspension mo... do's, do accept what you got yourself into... "THAT'S THE PRICE OF PORMA FOOL!"

Pero i hope your thread works for the good of the community....

May i add that You always use distilled water for your radiator and washer. This prevents mineral deposits from building up inside the radiator and washer system. Worst is if you use deep well water. Always add coolant to your radiator to prevent rusts from building up also.

Post by: CG on June 21, 2005, 04:39:49 PM
Matagal-tagal na yung thread na ito, but thanks, Migs, for this very helpful thread.

It pretty much covers the basics.

One thing I did miss out on is aftermarket Air Intake Kits (K&N, Simota, HKS, and the like).  What can people realistically expect from these?

1. Practicality, in terms of reusability.  Check.
2. Marginal power gains.  Check.
3. "Enhanced" engine sound. Check.

QUESTIONS
A. BUT, how do these affect fuel consumption, ASSUMING no change in driving style.

B. AND, how do these affect engine performance, in terms of smoothness and stability?

C. ALSO, how do these affect engine durability and reliability in the long run?

D. LASTLY, are there any real differences, aside from branding, between these kits?


I hope this info will be helpful to others as well.

Thanks.
Title: Re:Do's, Don'ts and FAQ's
Post by: speedyfix on June 27, 2005, 11:11:12 PM
my answers:

A. i have yet to see a person install performance mods (like a filter) without changing the way they drive. normally they step on it more just to hear the sound:) assuming they do not drive faster, consumption should not change drastically.

B. it should not affect the engine. smoother pa since you have a freer flowing intake path.

C. depends on the filter. if it's good dapat wala. pero most aftermarket filters will tend to make the intake dirtier so cleaning the TB and manifold should be done more often.

D. yes, not all filters are created equal. you have paper, foam, metal and maybe some other materials which the element is made of. you also have different filtering capabilities which tells you how much dirt/air they let in.

look for feedback then decide accordingly:)

Dagdag din...

Do it right the first time... The money you'll save from labor of doing things again and purchasing the correct part due to the mistake of the first should be more than enough reason to save up for the proper upgrade.

Mahirap sa mga mechanics/shop to troubleshoot or trace a problem if puros band-aid remedyo at "pwede na" upgrade/repairs.

I have a question pa din...  ;)

- What can you do with a piston type carburator? the one in a 1.5 Lancer GLX. can it be modified (simul?)  like we used to do in the old carbs.

Thnaks so much for the patience.   :D

Mikey23, dude i'm not really the guy to go to for carbs... so sorry! i think simul tho won't be a problem plus increasing the jeting size. syempre you will have problems with fuel milage and tuning the carb if you do this...

don't do massive engine upgrades (turbo on a NA car, bigger block) if you can't handle the maintenance of the engine. Kawawa lang ung engine hirap na hirap umandar and hassle din for your wallet.

Have your mechanic inspect your plugs, and let him determine if your plugs are already in need of replacement.

have it replaced elsewhere maybe the bushing given to you is not that good.

Or you can do research on PU bushings ... much longer lasting than rubber with the right hardness rating
Title: Re: Do's, Don'ts and FAQ's
Post by: speedyfix on April 23, 2007, 11:12:44 AM
either the bushing wasn't that good to begin with or else the chassis is misaligned kaya it wears out agad.

have it checked in velocity para sure kung di tumagal yung next bushing mo.

PU bushings - Polyurethane bushings, meron nyan sa HCP malamang.or sa mga tuner shops sa banawe, qc, etc. good upgrade yan. kaya lang, i'd stick to OEM if you're on a budget.pero if performance and durability ang habol mo, by all means...bili ka energy suspension bushings kit.un nga lang, mejo pricey, and harder compound, so not as supple ung ride...i think.

I like what you said here sir migs!

Ako bilang isang new car owner (as in first time) and didn't know anything about cars would really appreciate na may matatanungan kami. I thinks that's what forums are for.

Personally I find it hard to use the search engine to search for topics kasi sobrang dami ng lumalabas na result. That's why i try to create a new thread where i can ask my questions. Through that, mas madali kong makukuha yung sagot sa tanong ko. :)

Hope to visit your shop soon as I would like to have a complete check up of my used vehicle that i've bought.

wow, I hardly understood any of that...

just because you're replacing the internals doesn't mean the engine will be reliable, it's how it's put together and how it's tuned which will determine how long the engine will last.

Quotethat's allright nukee. if it helps a couple of people then that's good enough.

you really can't help people from asking things again and again. BUT every time you feel like you couldn't answer another "difference between 4-1 and 4-2-1 header" question just think about what it felt like when wala pa tayo alam and we were asking (over and over again) the guys we knew,  the the same questions people are asking us now
.                              I like what you've said here migs,you really nailed it!.hindi porket may kotse marami nang alam dba?,masarap ang pakiramdam ng nagsi-share ng konting kaalaman,lahat naman tayo nagsimula sa nagtatanong,and sometimes you will also learn from your questions.kaya nga may forum to help others,regarding car issues.it's like brainstorming.. :)

i agree.

although there are times that sobra na talaga yung tanong. a little bit of googling goes a long way. there are also times it's impossible to diagnose on the internet, in which case there's no substitute to bringing it to the shop.

a nice balance to googling and actual legwork is the key!
