Great!! I am glued to this thread. Stop teasing us or we will take away your beloved K&N filter. I am happy to see that K&N is adding a lot of extra power to the POOR engine.

All the best, Zak.

And not to stay far behind, I will also have only my favourite brands in this install. It will have Sony for sure!

Guys, I'm in the process of putting in my ICE one by one. Now, as we are done with the wiring, next shall be damping material. Ain't it?
But not much of surprising factors there. So we can skip it, me thinks. What say?

So i guess the'sound barrier' amps are in?? I knew you were saving them up for a really bigg install!

I saw zuheimi walking around with a couple of yellow speakers, the special variety which is fixed only in the rear light pod.

Man! This is turning out to be one amazing build!

Default Zak's Secret Plans.

Zak's got his Infinity 10" sub stashed away with him(Not a rainbow sub), But i guess for this special install it will be a kichdy of many famous and essential components like the 10" sub which will be powered by zak's most favourite Sony 222 Amp and the fronts comps will be nothing less than Audible Dynamics and the rear 6 X 9 will be Hollywood or Dhoom with external cross overs,I know zak has been dreaming a lot about all these equipments.

And Zak if your lancer is very slow,no need of imported air philters and all, I know how to make an Electric Super Charger just ask and I'll give you a demo or even I'll just give it to you for free.

Arrow Hmmm....... Shhhhh.....

Sunday is a good day!
It brings in lots of friends, food, laughs, happiness etc... Today was fabulous! The F1 race at Bahrain and a meet with some good Bhpian friends made it more and more exciting!
Ok, I hope that serves good enough as an excuse for not posting anything here for the whole day.

As I had already explained about the wiring scene, let's now move ahead.

Damping:
This section ain't that big to discuss about here. But let me explain what I have learnt from my experience.
The best and cost effective damping is to identify and mark all the necessary areas in a car which will require damping. How much and upto what extend it is required can be determined later.
As many of you already know, the Lancer (especially the very first generation sold in India) is a sturdy car built with and around some good grade metal. So thud or no thud, it doesn't cause too much of unwanted curr murrs here and there. So after some brainstorming and tongue wagging sections, we shortlisted the front doors, parcel tray area, undressing dash area, loose roof parts etc... as the prime locations to be damped. Boot was not included in this section of damping. Surprising?? Read on.....
Boot, afterall is a full strip job. It will be stripped off all carpets, mats etc... to body level first. Each and every uneven, loose, thin areas will be marked, welded and damped as necessary. Here, the spoiler is going to be a spoilsport! That is one area of concern and I hope it will handle and cope with all the 'low end booty shakes' we plan to plonk in.

I am not big fan of dynamat, but it will be used or something similar like fonomat, gel etc... with a mix of local raw materials will go in.

I'm sure the damping process will continue till the time of delivery. Zuhemi actually does a necessary/minimal damping job according to the car first and then fits all the equipment in. Then, as and where the necessity of more damping is required, he will keep adding to it until it reaches a good satisfactory point. This helps the customer save a lot of his hard earned money.

The damping is still under progress and I think it will be completed by tomorrow.

That's all in this update.
See ya all tomorrow with more!

You know, reading all of his posts, I have a feeling he's feeding us BS... leading us on. All this blah blah about big booms and 0g wires is a cover for something massively different. Apocalyptic, I'm certain. Zak is a sneaky so and so.

Zak, personally, I think we will have to get rid of the spoiler. It's going to rattle away to glory so might be better off without it. Give it a thought.

Is it even possible to forget him

Anyways, it was more of a suggestion but yea, I realise he can do something about it too. Hey, by the way, the LED bulbs on the spoiler are not connected now, I think. While you are at it,why don't you get Zuhemi to check it out.

More updates... we are hungry now!

Zak will be going the AWD route soon. He'll need that spoiler then. I vote no for the remove option.
