  3. Plugs and oil change for the 2JZ

  4. Jerome Espiritu – thats interesting. You just removed one turbo or removed both and changed to a bigger single turbo?

    nakita ko yung 6-series sa NLEX nung gabing yun, di ko alam na MFEST yung event nun, pero nakita ko yung number sa bintana sa likod so alam ko na galing sa “track day”(which i called the event…)

    So, on topic, nakikita ko lang kasi wala pa kong car e(hindi pa legal….), so sa opinion ko, I think nakakatulong din yung pagpapalit ng ECU(starting point), tapos kung kaya sa budget turbo siguro :)

  6. Christoper Opaco via Facebook says:

    it’s in the tuning of the mechanic… Weight reduction, yes it would help the car to accelerate faster and will increase top speed a little only, exhaust and mufflers its only for the sound you want to hear, headers? Yes it would help too, this is just to share my own experience, turbo is the best modification u can do to make ur car go faster…

  7. Boyong Vergara via Facebook says:

  8. IHE-ECU remapping then tires/spring drop
