Greetings from Indonesia,
on mid-2011,im looking for either Honda Fit (Jazz in Indonesia) or Toyota Vitz (Yaris in Indonesia), and Suzuki SX4..for the terrible road conditions (many speedbumps, etc), the SX4 clearly beats the other two. In short, on June 2011, my father and i go to nearest Suzuki dealer, and get a brand new White SX4..i thouht that i could get pictures from that time until now, to build a timeline, but totally forgot it, so here's my SX4,:
it has been running for 50.286km in 2years..driven 80kms everyday mainly highway (my transportation to college)..sometimes got its "1month holiday" on college break..looking for rally-style build:
shaved roofracks..thanks to one DIY thread on this forum (forgot the nickname)
that *ss..looks better with the DIY mudflap inspired from impreza guys, hiding the small tires that goes inside the fender (205/60/r16 tires), and full debadge..
other pics..btw the stickers are lists of products that i used, although one of them is replica (suzukisport grill) and WRC is homemade (mudflap), the k&n (drop in) is original
joeymod's headlight blackhousing on JDM headlights (left the turn signal and high beam reflectors, used projectors for low beam), and suzuki sport's grill replica
pics of interior, just wrapping some parts with carbon vinyl (to minimize the chromes and hide scratches)
and..the engine bay..M15A engine, with little mods:
homemade PCV valve bypass intake
list of mods:
-K&N drop-in filter, slight better fuel consumption on highway
-PCV valve bypass intake (dunno what it's called in english), directly add more air to the intake from behind the grill , better pickup response
-custom-made header (4-1 long runner), noticeable gain from 3000rpm until 6500, easily reach 180kmh top speed (maybe it still can go up, but the final gear limits it, cmiiw)
-removed catalytic converter (no mandatory smog test/regulation here, so who cares ?), noticeable power gain, and exhaust sound..
-custom-made chambered muffler..
-DIY 7 points grounding cable
-DIY Mudflaps+wrc stickers (search at google "DIY mudflap" for reference. Lot subaru guys do the mod)
-Suzuki rear wing (the small one)
-Suzuki Sport's grill replica
-Joeymod's headlight blackhousing
-chips on front bumper and hood caused by road debris
-Carbon wrapping on some parts
-Stock, stock, and stock
currently still working to get piggyback (Dastek Unichip) to maximize current mods,..and either painting stock rims to white, or trade for a set of 15" rally rims..
maybe on mid or end of 2014, or even early 2015, the SX4 may get serious upgrade,either turboing the M15A or just swapped with another motor and get heavily modded..big brake kits, coilover, bucket seat + 4point harnesses, and better tires also planned, to handle upgraded power. Still working hard and hope bunch of cash will run into my bank easily
any other mods and suggestion is welcome!!
