Hi, I have a Perodua Viva Elite 1.0 Auto that I would like to mod for better acceleration and handling. I would like to use it for a mix of touge and maybe one day a bit of track.
My question is what should I mod in order to achieve this?

So far I've followed the other thread on what to mod and I have added so far:-

1. Strut and Sway Bars from UR
2. 14" 6.5jj Rota rims with Yokohama BluEarth tires
3. Sach Coilovers on stock springs
4. Bendix brake pads on stock calipers
5. Brake Fluid and Engine oil have been changed to Bosch and Valvoline
6. Voltage Stabilizer and Grounding cables

What I plan to mod in the future:-

1. Full exhaust system with extractor, What brand is good?
2. Either BOT from speedworks or engine swap for K3-VET which is better?
3. Bucket seats, Recaro or Bride?
4. Myvi Calipers and Rotor
5. Racing Steering

What do you guys recommend? Thanks for any input! :biggrin:

That should be your first mod. Good luck, and remember other cars on the road are innocent. They are people's son, daughter, wife, husband, father, mother, brother, sister.

If you are really into car modifications, why did you pick automatic transmission in the first place? Should have just go for the manual transmission and that will give you a head start against Viva 1.0 Auto already.

Ya guys, he asking for mods for a Viva.....no need to tell him get this car or that car la wey.


I agree with Renesis. Do you really need an auto? Cause that's the first thing (ok, second after the brakes) you need to change.

U see,free gift some more la that viva.

you guys all must have been a teenager,when everything is free.free is awesome.... and somehow into cars.Budget wise,really low......
Back then even rm200 is a lot....so what i did is DIY to save up some money for shisha/hangout. Back then there was a lot of illegal racing. I wonder why its so quiet nowadays.

So this kid want to make his car fast,but they dont know,that stock is the best setup.its hard to get even a pony out of small cc engine without tuning...but management is expensive.

So rather than making your car fast,IMHO opinion the best cheapest way is to make your car feel fast.
If you have budget,make it logical.k3vet.is it logic?if its logic go ahead.

No need to patronize bro. You don't know him personally so don't think you can judge.


He's asking for advice for modding his car, nothing more nothing less. Just stick with the program.

The truth is, the price of a Viva 1.0 auto is enough to get you a very well modified Satria, Putra, Wira or Perdana already. Hehe, but fuel consumption and service is very different with Viva of course. Have the car but no money to maintain it also cannot. :biggrin:

viva auto touge and abit of track? really? get a manual kancil turbo instead broo...
Kancil turbo is cheap but is the maintenance cost low or not? Since it is turbocharged, so I thought maybe it won't be easy to maintain the car. Or is it more or less the same with the maintenance cost of normal Kancil?

Guys,dont bang him la....kecian him...

:biggrin:
Then at least insist on getting a manual version instead. You get cheaper price tag, better fuel consumption, better gearbox reliability and better performance as well.

Thanks guys :)

Too bad. You should have convinced them for buying the manual because it is cheaper.

Guys really, I already have the car and if I want to change to a manual I can do that in the future :/
I'm just asking for some mods for the car I already have, yeah I know protons and all are better but this is the car they got me and I can't say anything about so I'm trying to work with what I have.

Calm down and relax, we're not subjugating you. We are just giving out some suggestions and ideas to discuss only.

BTW, it's a good thing that you did not overreact and started scolding/questioning the ability of the members over here like what happened 1 or 2 weeks ago when some of us here went a little off topic. Those who are always active over here will know what incident I'm talking about. :biggrin:

Viva is a powerful car, auto is better, as auto you can control gear shift with your throttle, only is that if you use revving hard on auto, you must add atf cooler, to protect the auto gearbox, next you can upgrade front brake with a myvi front caliper and rotor brake set, then you can choose bucket seat (i prefer fully bucket, cheaper and serve the purpose). and most important i will get a set of lowered spring to match the sporty feel. yours is viva elite right? then appearance wise no need to do much, as it is very nice already, just need lowered.

---------- Post added at 11:50 AM ---------- 6 hour anti-bump limit - Previous post was at 11:48 AM ----------

steering no need to change, follow japan style, they only change parts that need upgrading and retain those parts that can be used.

Thanks bro, I saw your post in the other thread also, follow your advice a lot :)
Yep mine is Viva Elite. What place do you recommend to get atf cooler from?

It's actually quite fast for its size and follows its ancestors the kelisa and the kancil, as both are the same model so I'm willing to take it as far as it's able to go :)
I like seeing the limits of such a compact car.

As everyone else would suggest, handling and braking come first before everything else, because you don't want to ride on a rocket without a landing parachute. Once you are pretty sure this aspect is well taken care of, you get the confidence in driving your car.

That should be your first mod. Good luck, and remember other cars on the road are innocent. They are people's son, daughter, wife, husband, father, mother, brother, sister.
Amazing Ixeo never forget to broadcast the community service message, but you forgot there are also people's girlfriend, mistress and cat and dog who are equally important. Forgive me :biggrin:

Go for wider tyre, and improve your braking system.. If u feel underpowered, can do BOT. Try to search around on google how turbo works and parts needed before u go for this.. Auto also no problem if u r speed junkies.. U r not going for race everyday tho. Peace..

A piece of advice. It is very hard to unleash this car performance due the limited engine capacity. But there is hope still on making the car doin better corners.

This is my passed experience with my kelisa modded to 1300 cc manual

oi.. y put my name here hahaha!! small potato only my car.. saja tak tau malu go sepang lol

anyways, these were my mods on my slow auto trans viva elite.

-Genuine Apexi Power Intake Open Pod K-Car Spec + Custom Alu Ram Pipe (recommended to use drop in)
-Works Lightened Crank Pulley
-Works Engineering Magnetic Oil Sump Nut
-Dsports 1.3bar Radiator Cap
-Forged Racing Radiator Fan
-Hayden ATF cooler
-Full SS Exhaust System (3-1 Manifold) piping try with 1.5" or 1.6" max for NA, anything more is too much
-UltraRacing 2pt Front Upper Struts
-UltraRacing 3pt Rear Bar
-UltraRacing 3pt Fender Bar
-UltraRacing 2pt Anti Roll Bar 18mm
-UltraRacing 2pt Rear Lower Arm Bar
-Dsports Front Sway Bar
-Stiffrings Rigid Collar
-BC Racing V1 Series Street and Circuit 30pt HLSH Coilovers (from a MYVI 1.3, fits into viva)
-Large single pot caliper + R32 280mm Crossed-Drilled Rotor + (Track :480*C Pads) (Street :420*c Pads) [single pot is good enough, twin pot and beyond is overkill for such a small car]
-Pro-RS Steel Braided Brake Hose [shitty hose, broke and almost killed me. recommended to use SuperCircuit hose]
-Kumho KU31 Ectsa SPT Street Rubbers [165/50/15, the only good tyres for this size back then, works like a charm in Sepang]
-TPI Lugs Nuts
-Genuine Desmond Evo Regamaster 15x6.5jj [If possible, recommend you to use 14" with 165/55/14 because Achilles recently launch new semi slick - ATR K Sport for this size]
-NRG Gauge
-Lubed by Motul 300V, Motul ATF, Motul Coolant

Was considering for a k3vet swap till i decided to change car LOL!

anyways if i still have the car, the following NA mods will be done to it
-Velocity Intake Manifold
-14" rims with Achilles ATR K Sports
-Port & Polish [NastyPortFlow]
-probably emanage / unichip it to squeeze that extra 4-5 whp and torque from the mods :)

any further would be BOT or k3vet swap, but im more of a handling kinda person than power hunger, hence u see mostly handling mods done. With the above setup, the car handles like a go kart, but kinda stiff for daily use. anyways, viva is a light car and a very fragile car. not suited for high speed use.. drive safe and have fun modding! :)

hmm.. well fiesta also going on the similar pathway mods. but all i can say is viva handles like a go kart with all the mods haha. can tackle almost all corners i encounter on the road with minimal to no braking hehe
couple with good fc, small and happy car, easy to park everywhere... not a bad car after all. just that gotta drive slow.. ive tried up till 160kmph before on north south highway, pretty scary driving a k car up to that kinda speed. safety definitely an issue, but then again. good town driving car

fiesta of course better power delivery and good handling right out from the box with no mods. all in all its a different category all together haha. but then again, the experience gained is priceless. really learn alot about handling, how each and every part affects handling characteristics and also it is cheaper to mod a viva than a fiesta. so now im using those experience to slowly mod my fiesta step by step :p

still a loooong way to learn from all the sifus lurking here in zth. time to explore more on the power department :)

-TPI Lugs Nuts
-Genuine Desmond Evo Regamaster 15x6.5jj [If possible, recommend you to use 14" with 165/55/14 because Achilles recently launch new semi slick - ATR K Sport for this size]

Was considering for a k3vet swap till i decided to change car LOL!

anyways if i still have the car, the following NA mods will be done to it
-Velocity Intake Manifold
-14" rims with Achilles ATR K Sports
-Port & Polish [NastyPortFlow]
-probably emanage / unichip it to squeeze that extra 4-5 whp and torque from the mods :)

any further would be BOT or k3vet swap, but im more of a handling kinda person than power hunger, hence u see mostly handling mods done. With the above setup, the car handles like a go kart, but kinda stiff for daily use. anyways, viva is a light car and a very fragile car. not suited for high speed use.. drive safe and have fun modding! :)
hi bro, theres this thing i need to ask u. i've noticed dat u've installed WORKS LCP in ur viva. its d same size as stock oem rite? do u need to change d belt? izit just plug & play? any adverse side effect occured to ur ride while/after using it? i planned to installed it anytime soon, however just wanna gather further info bout it. i do read smwr dat a fella need to change d belt (smaller size) when installing it as he mentioned d WORKS LCP was made for kenari/kelisa. i thought its compatible across viva/kenari/kelisa ?
