Under the hood

5 long weeks, according to Francis Tan, a.k.a. 'Uncle', has his car been in the workshop getting its engine overhauled. Our friend, as he explained (picture on the left & right)

is getting a new 'MIVEC'** head over the block of this 1.8l engine. Incidentally, when we went over to Tajol's (name of Uncle's mechanic) place on Sunday nite (July 1st), his new intake manifold would be coming on Monday.

** MIVEC = Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing Electronic Control system. (to read more about it, click please)

But I must say, the engine is looking pretty good... the repainted block in black, aptly contrasted with the newly painted oil sump (no angle in these pictures)

But take a look at the 'squeeky' clean valves... I could not resist taking a macro shot of it. Looks almost brand new... or are they?

I have taken out Uncle's car a few times... it should be a real treat taking this baby out for a spin when all is spick and spam... Uncle, you may wanna tell Tajol to 'step on it'! :)
