sifus ...will a hi performance plug cable such as 9.8mm hurricane sufficient for a 1.3 efi engine ? will it affected the engine performance ? or should i stand back to stock cable with my current bosch super 4 sparkies ...

i think i mentioned b4 in one of your threads,plug cables can wait if your engine is still close to stock....better use the money for other mods.

No difference at all. Might get aeroplane sound in ur sound system. If you wanna get performance, dont bother with cheap mods. I learnt the hard way.

Good sparkies, bad sparkies..
All it does is ignite the air/fuel mixture only.. Performance wise, on a stock engine there will be no diffrence..

Nope, unless ur car is carburetted like mine. It fcked up the air fuel mixture then my idling went gila haha :rofl:

If youve got minor mods on your engine it should help.

On a stock engine cannot feel the difference...

hehe im also learning mah! Still considered noob also.. If not, sure my car wont be standard already.. But i like it this way.. Stock, not much prob..
Btw darren, ur car got EFI, mine carbie only.. Somehow this statement makes me feel old.. Huhu..
Back to topic, in my opinion, no use using 'sports' spark plug cables unless the plugs itself is a normal one.. See the plugs, how it sparks.. Some plugs have a wide spark, better combustion.. Im using bosch super4 also, satisfied with it so far..

Haha yeah maybe in 5 years time or so :rofl: hahahaha.
Now i've only got spark plug cables + full exhaust change only, I doubt I can overtake you.

But I agree on the less headache part also... thats why im keeping the stock engine :driver:

Haha I hate the 'kentut' sound when you clutch so im using a straight flow.

My car is manual so I just went for a straight through... U want to see how it looks like I've got pictures on photobucket, my users name is phishcake :biggrin:

Anyway here are the specs:

1. Cap ayam headers
2. 2" piping all the way
3. Header changed (Even cap ayam works, very happy haha :biggrin:)
4. 2 middle silencers, 1 small and one medium
5. The muffler dunno how to describe... its something like the apexi world sport/tanabe hyper medallion

It cost I think rm700+? Cant remember exactly :rolleyes:

But it adds power, response, quiet bassy idling and when I rev huhuhu :proud:, then only bising. At idling its soft and bassy, barely any difference from in the car...

ohh i see ...haha ..no problem =) ...if you are running manual ...go for straight flow ...piping diameter stay stock ..coz your engine is still stock ...as i know ..this is what kent told me ...if the engine is still in stock ..better stay back to piping diameter size ..no point changing it bigger ...somehow the power is still vary to the engine ...juz change the extractor to 4-2-1 ...put 1 mid bullet ...straight flow muffler ...very nice setting liao =D ...learned this from sifus

Haha edited man, nothing better to do so yeah :rofl:

If you want a bassy sound go for a bigger muffler, the smaller it is the louder it gets cause theres less material to absorb the sound... Manuals pretty easy to mod, anything you wanna pasang just pasang haha :biggrin:

Its much cheaper if you dont change your headers though... but you dont get any power increase :rolleyes:

Hey thanks man, youre welcome too :)

LoL from spark cable thread become exhaust for dummies thread.. Hehe yeah, stock engine means stock diameter.. If not consumtion will rise also..
But big muffler? Not garang lah like that! Hehe as long as the noise in the cabin at the minimum, its owkay.. Otherwise need to use the headphones like they use in helicopters to talk in the car.. Hehe thanx u guys!
