2nd Baby Steps: New Blitz Spec Nur & New Piping

While waiting for ‘the package’ to reach my doorstep, I’ve to fulfill couple of prerequisites and that includes new catback exhaust. So happen that I’m on leave for couple of days, to make the most of my boredom agenda I called Ah Heng for an appointment, today.

After short rounds of negotiations, I’ve decided to go for new custom 2.5” stainless steel piping and new Blitz Spec Nur universal muffler. The works started from 1100 until 1630. Typical Ah Heng's attention to detail just like the intercooler job couple of years ago. And I was lucky that Pocong was the only customer they had!

 ~Tanya sama Pocong apa sebab goyang ... nanti jawab Pocong Spec Nur dah nak datang~....

 If it's good enough for Skylines, Silvias and Subarus, it should be good enough for VW I think...err

Started work at 1100 and completed circa 1630. Typical Ah Heng's attention to detail, luckily Pocong was the only customer that day

 New 2.5" stainless-steel piping all the way to the end

New muffler placed far enough to the left just like JDMs
 Kiut miut Polo with muffler tip big enough to barbeque couple of mice...some say big enough for a cat

A German car, manufactured in South Africa, aftermarket parts mostly from USA, tuned by Canadian, styled to be Japanese and modded by Malaysians :P

1st Baby Steps: Genesis 415cc Injectors

I've been neglecting this blog for quite some time, have I? Truth be told, it’s really down to the fact that there’s nothing much to report as the Pocong has been cozily hibernating on my apartment’s car park for months. She’s been too complacent to the point that the parts are beginning to disintegrate by itself!

So I have to do something about this by setting up a goal to replenish and refresh the heart to be a little energetic than it is now. Yes, new turbo kit but it’s not K04-001…something supposedly better. 

The 1st baby step is to get a set of injectors that can provide optimum fueling. And when it comes to injectors for Volkswagen, Genesis is among the top spoken manufacturer in the States. Most Genesis injectors are based in some way on Bosch and Siemens cores but purposely re-engineered for VW’s small-port 20v heads and R32. It features factory-correct dual spray cones, fast response, with atomization directly from injector nozzle and more upon impact with intake valves. 

Aside from the hardware itself, Genesis injectors are backed with information. Fueling is a mission-critical part of any engine build. Meanwhile, how many vendors only put up a product name, picture, price, and nothing else? MOST. They assume that the customer already knows what they need. So, where does this knowledge come from? Compare the contenders to USRT where tech is explained clearly. It becomes obvious where the information trail actually STARTS. And these injectors are the preferred brands by Unitronic. 

Although it’s a little expensive, it’s really no brainer not to go for Genesis 415cc injectors at around USD350 a set for a peace of mind especially when it comes to cold start issues. Fortunately for me, the customs have been very lenient enough to let this through without imposing tax!
