My Own Game

He lives in the geographical center of Europe, and there was a serious strain with details for improvements in his native region - apart from the "take-away basins" (Turkish disks) and the "two-story whatnots" (wing), the native shops did not indulge in anything. Interestingly, he knew, who had resettled with the "Japanese" about this?

Well, personal contacts went into business - Moscow friends and acquaintances brought details from case to case. Tuning "glands", although not voluminous, but weighty, and sometimes had to pay extra for baggage.

And the process has begun. So far, the trial and the case have put the Petersburg shock absorbers Plaza and a Ukrainian muffler with a direct-flow "paver" of menacing diameter. There was no increase in comfort: the car turned into a chipper, and the muffler murmured. The timbre of sound is quite diverse - from a low, uterine hum at 2000 rpm to an angry, sharp roar at the top.

Then came the forged wheels VSMPO. A set of new Korean tires of dimension 185 / 65R14 was removed from another family car. The wheels turned out to be very durable - despite the abundance of potholes, they did not fray in two years. However, the combination of single-pipe “crowbars” and large wheels led to the fact that when driving through asphalt pits it breaks teeth to the very tailbone. Something like this …

Then the 52nd camshaft arrived in Moscow. It was he who turned out to be the last of those “riding” shafts that do not require revision of the head. While the engine and other units were running in (which took almost a year, because this is a "weekend car"), they were engaged in the interior. Titanium sheet covers appeared on the instrument panel and thresholds, the console was trimmed with carbon fiber (not imitation!), And the pillar covers and door pockets with orange Alcantara. She decorated door inserts for the sake of the stylistic unity of the cabin.

Not the most convenient "decimal" steering wheel was replaced by the "figure eight". According to the owner of the car, it became more pleasant to steer, and the instruments are now in sight. The steering wheel, door handles, gear lever and handbrake were finished with leather - the owner again chose the color. To your liking …

On the pedals there were pads - but not simple, but tailored from duralumin to order. From the same opera, specially made titanium plates with the serial number and date of purchase. Clearly, showing off pure water. But he wanted without tinsel …

A modest-looking “nine” was thoroughly charged with musical equipment: a three-way component front, a pair of 12-inch subwoofers, two amplifiers … The staff shelf rattled mercilessly under the pressure of the subwoofer. We ordered a new one from 10 mm plywood. Midbass stood on specially made podiums (plywood 27 mm), painted with DuPont metallic with intermediate polishing of layers.

“Musification” was worth the sacrifice, not only in a financial sense. After installing the subwoofer enclosure in a tight trunk, I had to abandon the reserve. Now there rests a cylinder with a sealant for tires, a compressor and … suede for polishing the body. “Music” did not have the best effect on the battery: the factory battery died four months after the installation of the system, the “bourgeois” battery that came to replace it still holds on. To control the on-board voltage, a TX-310 digital tachometer-voltmeter was built into the console, switching it to voltmeter mode.

Thinking, our hero (remember - a serious man) decided … again to do looks. A radiator grille without an emblem was registered between the headlights, polytech folding mirrors grew on the doors … Trendy white turn signals appeared in front, and trendy “crystal” appeared on the back. In a creative impulse, the owner cleaned the back door, getting rid of not only the nameplates and the rear wiper, but also the external lock (the electric drive now plays its role).

The next trip to Moscow became the most significant in terms of tuning: they brought a whole set consisting of a split aluminum gear, a distributor with sports settings, a low-resistance air filter and a Solex Megasport 25x27 carburetor … In addition, the owner ordered a Prosport cover for the oil filler neck. I gave 500 rubles - but what a bauble!

After installing / tuning parts, it was possible to get rid of the depressing failure at low speeds. Well, starting from 4000, the motor just sings, easily twisting up to 6500 rpm. True, because of the low-resistance filter, the already quiet silencer became even more vociferous.

Unstable idle and good appetite (easily goes beyond 12 liters per hundred) is compensated by outstanding dynamics: overclocking the “nine” is able to successfully compete with 16-valve front-wheel drives. True, with abrupt starts, the interior fills the distinct smell of a burnt clutch …

Another problem: the strut front struts, bought in a reputable Moscow car shop, turned out to be substandard and fell into place only after surgery.

In general, the stability and controllability of this "nine" has increased as much as the smoothness worsened. In the immediate plans of the owner is another upgrade of the exhaust system, replacing the front brakes with ventilated ones and installing “low” springs. Because of them, you will have to abandon the wing flaps and winter trips to the mountains. But there is nothing to be done, there are laws in tuning, and the family has a more practical car.
