Nissan ESFLOW Sports EV

If you come across to watch the video talking about the "Clean Disruption" or the book written by Tony Seba, those who doing business heavily depend on the current conventional automotive parts may need to start thinking for their future, of course we don't know how accurate Tony Seba predict the future of the traditional fuel driven transportation, but the video is just worth for us to watch it and think further.

Toyota 1VD-FTV Engine Gasket

When I first known about a V8 engine from Toyota, it is under UZ series (1UZ-FE, 2UZ-FE and 3UZ-FE) of petrol engine, and when someone is asking about the Toyota 4.5 V8 diesel engine, it is a wow for me, this Toyota Landcruiser LC70 or LC200 is really exist in Malaysia market.

Some call it as Landcruiser VDJ76, VDJ78, VDJ79 or VDJ200 model, is using the 1VD-FTV of V8 diesel engine, in the source of Wikipedia, this engine suppose to be found in Australia, India, Southern Africa, Central and South America.

The overhaul set gasket for this Toyota 1VD-FTV engine, is just like those Toyota Diesel engine overhaul set gasket kit, which their kit is not include the cylinder head gasket.

And their cylinder head gasket which also have different thickness which can be found in the last 2 alphabet at their parts label.

The 2016 Proton Perdana with Honda engine

Most of us known that the new Proton Perdana launch recently is something about the 9th generation of Honda Accord, or a previous version from the latest version of Honda Accord, so what will you be getting for their engine?

The 2016 Proton Perdana is come with 2 variant of engine with 2.0 and 2.4, which the 2.0 version using the R20A engine and the 2.4 using the K24Z3 engine, the gasket for the 2.4 most probably are the one show in the photo, of course this car won't need to change the gasket for at least 5 years if the owner is taking care of the engine correctly, but once they need it, will it be good to buy a Honda parts or Proton parts?

In the previous Proton model which have the relation with Mitsubishi, Proton just change the Mitsubishi part number by changing the front 2 alphabet from MD to PW, for example, changing Mitsubishi part number of MD997671 to PW997671, and they using the PW until the Campro version of model. I'm quite curious how Proton will change the Honda part number like 12251-R40-A01 to what Proton part number.
