    Mitsubishi Outlander

    Thanks for the informative input ! How reliable was the engine ? Or any noticeable problems you observed during your ownership? I was considering Rav4, might take a look at Forester too.

    Mitsubishi Outlander

    Hi, Was wondering if anyone here is driving 2009 Mitsubishi Outlander (or used to own one) ? Thinking of converting to SUV from my Mark X... Was looking at Outlander as I like the design and functions. Any things I should take note of ?

    Auto gear knob

    Most staggered kind don't have the Shift Lever (button that we normally must press to shift the Gear), so they can freely shift it. You can also convert your Straight kind to Staggered kind

    Toyota Altis Gearbox Cosmetic Modifications

    Yes Bro, I have ordered my staggered gear and am waiting for it's arrival. Hoping to find a local garage that is willing to do the swap. My foreign friend has kindly included a simple installation manual. Any suggestions ?

    Toyota Altis Gearbox Cosmetic Modifications

    Credits to www.myaltis.com/forum This how it looks like when the custom connector is fitted on a 1.8L Gear Module and ready for 1.6L Gearbox installation. The shift lock button on our original 1.6L Gear knob is bypassed and the Overdrive is linked to Gear 3. The rest remains the same.
  6. Dear fellow Forumers: Would like to engage your help. I'm currently driving a 1.6L '06 Toyota Altis (G9.5), the Gear for my model has a Shift Knob and an Overdrive Button on the Gearstick. For the 1.8L variant, they get the fanciful shift gears instead. Due to the limitations on the 1.6L Gearbox, we are unable to do direct changes to our gear knobs, but I've heard that it can be done by having a separate button for the Overdrive and doing some modifications (considered more on cosmetic) so that we can change our gear stick and knob. I've even seen a successful case of a complete change to the 1.8L type of Gear Shift, but it's just a cosmetic mod, not a gearbox change. Pictures are as follow: 1.6L Gear Converted to 1.8L style Gear Wonder if anyone has contacts or has any idea of any workshop that is willing to take up such a challenge. I am planning to change my gear stick and knob to the one below, while still retaining the original gearbox: Thanks ! Credits: Altis Group Singapore Forums
  7. For Galvanized Steel, any worries that it will crack ? For high-flow cat, can pass inspection ? Btw, care to share the contact for MAN ? I would like to enquire for my ride too. Thanks.

    Toyota Owners please come in!

    Any Forumers have any experience doing Gear Box modifications? I'm currently driving a 1.6L '06 Toyota Altis, I've seen people driving the same model doing gear-knob changes and re-routing the Shift Lock & Overdrive to a separate button, and even seen successful individuals fit a 1.8L Toyota Altis Gearbox into our model. If anyone has some contacts, would appreciate if you could share.

    Kia Forte facelift in Korea with 1.6GDi and 6spd auto!

    2.0L might have, but not too sure about a Turbocharged version, have to wait and see... A Turbo Koup would be really cool.

    $300 worth of improvement to stock setup

    May I know what's the estimated costs for installing (inclusive of wires) a set of ICE ? Probably an amp, a pair of tweeters, and a pair of speakers. Only need installation costs. Thanks !
