1997 Mitsubishi Mirage Asti ZR
80,000kms
RacingHart 17" Mags

Engine:
Displacement: 1597cc
Engine model: 4G92 MIVEC
Transmission: 5 speed manual sport type cross mission
Max.power (Net), kw(PS)/rpm: 175 ps (128.71 kw) / 7500 rpm
ABS Breaking

Interior:
Factory Recaro Seats

Absolutely in factory original condition I believe, nothing done to it except a Sony steering column stereo controller (awful looking thing), looks worse when removed :/

*edit* Removed the stereo controller, the base was just screwed in, so left two small holes. Much better than what it was.

To do list:

Tints
K&N Pod Filter

Looks good.

I see you got the cool little dials and those are the best recaro's (better than the newer 97 onwards anyway).

I take it got ABS as well.

Well, got my hands on a K&N Pod Filter, turns out the connection end is too small to fit standard pipe. So just did some makeshift improvements in the mean time.

Very simple mod, just a start, nothing advanced at all, recommended for all you beginners out there (EXCEPT step 3, patients and fiddely bolt removal required) :)

Removing the air intake silencer box, sounds cooler (sweet thing is, it's only when you put your foot down, so mummy won't know!), better air flow to the engine, makes the car lighter (lol, not really, but a lot of plastic removed :P), may increase temperature of air slightly (baddd) and costs $0!

1.

Removed panel filter

2.

Optional: removed 1st half of airbox.

3.
Image
Removed 2nd half of airbox, circled peice removed, WARNING: there is a VERY hard bolt to remove at the bottom under box, you need to set aside 10-15mins of your time... can do it with the right tools (and A LOT of patience, one click at a time with a ratchet), or you might have to take off front bumper (risky as it never goes on again right lol).

4.

Big hole left by removing sliencer box just in front of front left wheel

5.

Granny parts removed

6.
Put it all back together again, just without the resonator.

You obviously don't need to remove all the parts, but just showing it anyway (was measuring up for a pod).

Next on the list is getting a custom aluminium pipe for pod, which I'm hopefully going to be able to jam partially down in the hole left by the silencer, instead of going down the cold air partition route.

Question is, do I create a opening for the air reasonator thing, you know.. the big plastic thing on top of the plastic standard pipe? I don't mind losing a bit of performance if it means a smoother ride.

Bad for the car if it gets in the wrong places, so if you do it, make sure you do it hard and fast and get photo evidence! :P

Dominion Rd Hamilton today, it PISSED down.

I removed the silencer intake pipe thingywotsit on the weekend, and goodness, did it make a difference to the noise (thanks Heath for pointing it out!)

I would never go through water that deep when i had my gen1, such aquaeous intervention would flood the brakes and they'd kinda stop working :shock:

Little bit worried about this part though, it's a bit bent up and cracked.

Come with the car, I think the person who bought it new asked for it as an option. I think it was a factory option. Btw, it's all fixed up now, they re-did the decals and gave me a more hairy-fairy font for "Asti" stink lol.
