Little by little - Kimi Monogatari.

todoke todoke tooku e
ima wo kiss kaizen namida azukete
hajimare, nagai nagai kimi monogatari

namidatte, namidatte ureshii toki ni nagashitai
kirei na mizutamari uta detai no wa naai?
minna miyo sora ni
matataiteiru hoshi no kazu hodo no deai kara.
ari wo manandari, hizu wo morattari
tsunagau beku.

keep going, keep going, off into the distance
my tears of happiness from this kiss are yours alone
And so its begin your own long long story

what if this joyful times make want to cry waves of tears
and the puddles they leave inspires me to sing?
Everyone, look at the sky.
So full of twinkling friends waiting to meet you.
You'll form your own bond as you learn of the world.
and get your own map to follow.

4G91 engine.

After using for 5 years, I decided to transplant my Wira engine from 4G15P auto transmission to 4G91 auto transmission. This is due to several complication happen to my former engine. Auto gearbox jerking, computer box not working properly and too much power loss due to emission.

After waiting for one week, from Monday to Saturday. My Wira was complete of engine transplant. First time I drove it. It was so amazing. Great pickup, gear shift smoothly and low fuel consumption. I don’t know why the engine is quite different from my former engine although their cc is same respectively.

The cost of transplant is RM3,800 complete with Lancer 1.8 halfcut. Actually I bought a Lancer 1.8 halfcut and I sell back a 4G93 engine to the mechanic. I don’t want to use a 1.8 engine because it require several additional gadget to install to my Wira such as rear disk brake and I think I don’t need powerful engine because I want to give this car to my wife.

Other part is using 1.8 gadgets such as throttle body, suspensions, disk brake, water coolant and many more accept the engine. I use 4G91 engine instead. The warranty for this transplant is one month. After that, I will register the new engine by myself. Overall performance, I very satisfied with this engine. I hope this engine will last long.
