    2017 Toyota Corolla Altis new Facelift

    If only this Altis comes with the new 1.2TC engine. But I guess if it does happen, it should be for a new model and not FL. Altis 2020 perhaps.
  3. On a lighter note, does Camry also have the 'chilling' aircon of the Altis?
  4. To clarify, its coz I see that for Honda, for the >2L NA, e.g., Odyssey, the engine which appears to be the same lump used, when JDM, its 11.1:1. However, for export (AD), its at 10.1:1. However, for the small Fit/Jazz 1.5 with L15B engine, be it JDM or export, comp remains at 11.5:1. Above is where I got the idea from. Ignition retard should save most engines. However, I also believe that there is a baseline where "thats the lowest to go whereby the engine can catch most of the 'ping'." In the case of SkyActiv, at 14:1, 95 is stated to be the minimum.

    2016 Audi A4 sedan & avant

    KM said to me that recommended to do flush once a year. Back then I agreed. $80. Later SA brought what they used and showed to me (leftover). It was 2 cans of Liquid Moly sprays. 1 labelled as fuel injector cleaner the other says valve cleaner iirc. Dont recall either of the canisters stating 'engine flush'.

    CK building burnt

    Thats what I heard about too
  7. Enlightening post. I always appreciated your serious comments; the way the subject is circumspect, with insights on 'technicalities'.
  8. Dont say liao......later all Channel U foreign drama with the plot involving the media tio banned,,
  9. If its electronics, then humidity is the biggest enemy. I believe thats why office server equipment are stashed in designated server rooms with chilling air-conditioners and often with dehumidifiers 24 by 7.
  10. The queuing, toll, weekly time wasted/risk taking just does not make sense. If it really comes to that, might as well be a sole proprietor.

    News for Racial Discrimination

    Not to mention for the last 30-40 years, lots of Asian students head there to study. The AMDK/L are used to seeing Asians. The AMDK/L students had Asian classmates. Melbourne specifically.
  12. The storage tank is the pump station's storage tank i suppose. :(
  13. I usually self pump & maintain 1/2 lever pressure so as to reduce losses from evaporation and so that as the 'click' doesn't occur prematurely. But I stop at 1st click. Coz a little space is needed to accommodate expansion. SPC lately advertises that they are the 1st to have certain stage 2 Vapor Reduction .....not sure how that works. Does it suck up the evaporated petrol & re-drip it into our tank?

    2014 Honda Jazz / Fit (GK Series)

    Mine is stock :) w/o tuning, I believe an after-market will slightly reduce power/torque of the 1st 1/2 of the rpm range & slightly improve the 2nd half... Hence, being below 4k rpm most of the time, I'm not keen to.
