Recommended Posts

Are there any mods that you guys think or find that it is useless? Let's crowdsource the list of items to avoid! This thread is catered only for performance part or power gains. 

 

I found this quantum plasma magnet online that seems shady. The last time I came across quantum physics is from Ant-man from Marvel

The usual suspects for expensive useless products (no particular order):

 

- Surbo

- Cyclone

- V-Stab/Z-Stab Voltage-stablizers

- Fuel lines Magnetic energizers

- CAI aka cold air intakes

- nanoball

- fake branded brake covers

- some brands of fake racechips and ecochips, exposed online in youtube to be a simple circuit board for Christmas lights.

aftermarket fog lights that, when switched on, give 5 more BHP.

Simulated Turbo swirling and Release Valve sound.

Straight thru pipes - charge pipes, X pipes, exos pipes.

All noisy exos mods that gives louder=faster feeling.

bluish headlights.

painting rims, red, green, yellow, pink, etc.

Big big spoilers make a difference on the track.

Electrical mods usually are useless.

Grounding wires are redundant, unless you have a ground problem, in which case, your lighting and other devices may not work properly.

My personal experience with this 12 years back with my first car, Latio Sport, showed enough butt feel difference to make it a permanent fixture in the car. When going up Sheares Bridge from Suntec side the car will go up much more willingly compare to sluggish feel without. But that was my only encounter with this mod as subsequent cars are of bigger cc.

 

So I will not brush it as useless, but also will not tout it as useful on all cars. Depend on cars and fixtures lah.

Putting TRD stickers on a Nissan Latio adds 10hp right?

 

And install lots of cheap looking LED lights and bars and see some of them dim or burnt out at night will add another 10 hp I guess

 

Big spoilers and bodykits will add 50 hp to the car

Depends, spoiler if it's installed incorrectly/not doing high speed driving(frequent KL runs) is useless since it creates unnecessary drag.

As for exhausts, it's a trade off. Sacrificing low end for top end or just looks/noise. To many others it's useless, but if the owner likes it, by all means. At least it's better than that useless S*rb* junk that some install on their intake which they think would help with efficiency.

I felt my exhaust mod is making my car lost pickup, but at north south highway, from 100km to 200km is a more enjoyable ride.
