  • 2012 Proton Saga FLX bolt on turbo

    Here is my own 2012 Proton Saga FLX bolt on turbo. Currently running without management, still able to boost up to 0.4 bar (albeit with bad fuel consumption). Saving up for a Haltech Sprint 500 standalone! To complement the power, a new semi-racing clutch will be dropped in. Next is to upgrade the brake system to a double servo pump, and better brake pads. The car is currently running on a lowered spring setup (Sapura sports spring) which is sufficient for daily usage. Read more

Stolen and abandoned Mitsubishi Evo 9 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Found these pictures of a stolen or abandoned Mitsubishi Evolution 9. Based on the thread on Lowyat.net, this Mitsubishi Evo 9 was found in Rawang, Malaysia. The Evo 9 carries the plate WXC 6280. I do hope the owner can recover his beloved car!




Mitsubishi Evolution 9
The 4G63T has been revised and now outputs 287hp (214kW) with 392 Nm of torque (289 lb ft). All this from a 2.0-litre engine with MIVEC!

How fast is the Evo 9? It can accelerate from 0-100km (0-62mph) in 4.2 to 4.5 seconds.

Vibrating steering wheel after changing tyres? Check your balancing!

Hup Shun Tyres, Malaysia

Do you have a steering wheel which vibrates at high speed? In most cases, it is usually the wheel balancing but it could also be warped brake disc rotors. However, unless it vibrates when you are braking, your best bet is to check the balancing first. Now the problem is, sometimes mechanics says there are no problems found, despite you being so sure that the problem is that particular problem (sounds familiar?). 


To be fair to the mechanic, the owner should know his/her car best as they have spent a greater deal of time driving it. The problem comes when the feedback from the car owner is not taken seriously by the workshop mechanic. 


Below is an independent review from forum. Please do not judge the shop from just this review, but merely take it with a pinch of salt and assist you if you face a similar problem. 


DETAILS OF MY EXPERIENCE:
I sent my car to HupShun Tyre @ JALAN PJS 11/7, BANDaR SUNWAY, for changing two front tires. After changing the tires, I experienced steering vibration at high speed above 120/kmh.

I brought it back to HupShun the next working day and told them about the problem. They just took it out, rebalanced and replace back, and tell me "it's 'OKAY now".

From my past experience, I had this same vibration problem above 120/kmh before, and the previous tire shop did an on-wheel/high speed balancing for me, and everything was ok. - But this HupShun mechanic told me that actually they don't have that machine to do high-speed balancing.

THEN THINGS GET INTERESTING.

He proceeded to tell me actually my rims are dented (bengkok)!!

I argued and said, if my rims are dented (bengkok), why the day before when I traveled to Johor and back, there was NO vibration AT ALL even at 150-160/kmh??

I politely asked to speak to the manager.

Tyre Price List in Malaysia from Tek Ming


Here are some of the tyre prices for your  reference! Obtained them from Tek Ming. Tek Ming Tyre Shop is located in Sunway. Their prices may not be the cheapest, but service is pretty decent. If you aren't buying rims perhaps it is worth it to visit there, rather than driving all the way to Klang for cheaper tyres. I heard Shah Alam also have some pretty good rim and tyre deals! The pricelist contains mostly Silverstone tyre prices and also Goodyear tyre prices.

Proton Saga BLM with Audi A4 modification!

Well, actually this Proton Saga BLM just had a simple grille makeover with the Audi logo slapped on it. Along with the LED strip on the headlamp, front skirtings, and also a Audi style paint job, this Proton Saga BLM actually looks like an Audi! Maybe if you had 20/50 vision and also 3 pints of J├Ągerbomb this Saga would look like the real "thang"!
