Talking Greetings From Honduras3

I Made a very Short video just to let you Hear the Spectra's T8D Engine / Exhaust Sound, without Both Catalytics and having a resonator and a Standard Muffler on a 2" pipe:


The sound is not loud at all, but the Camera's Microphone was very close to the Exhaust tip, which makes you to believe it was Loud.

You'll Notice that it doesn't has the Typical L4 Engine's Rasp sound, just a Deep note.

The empty pre catalytic Chamber on the Exhaust manifold, plus the Resonator on the pipe, keeps the Deep Tone even Deeper and not too loud.

Kind Regards.

...and the Battery Base, that was Very Rusty.

Again: The Magic of SandPaper & RustOleum:





I Hanged it There After Painting and it had Two Hours at the Sun Light





Also I Glued a Thick Rubber Over it...

it is a Great idea that this Kias have a Removable Battery Base, just three Nuts and Voilá!

The New -To Me- 2003 Spectra's T8D engine works Flawlessly, Strong and Smooth as Silk on the 2000 Sephia; my Wife and I are more than Satisfied with the Overall car Performance, which now has been named: the "KiaStein"




When I did the Engine Swap, I Sent the Radiator to a Local Radiator shop in order to change its Old Plastic Tanks for a New metallic ones.Those are Made from Aluminium:

When I Swapped the Engine on my Wife's Kia Sephia, I took the opportunity to change the engine mounts and the Automatic Transmission mounts Nº 1 and Nº 2, from the Four it Has:


Here you can see the Brand new Sparkplugs I installed on the Fresh engine:

Nippon-Denso's twin electrodes U-Groove.


Yes, I Brake the Chair too...

The Original Stereo unit came without its Faceplate and was impossible to get another faceplate for that...





But that Stero already had a Decade old, so it doesn't worth to repair it.

Instead, I obtained a Brand New Stereo:



Which I Really Like because it not only is Powerful and extremly Easy to Use:




it also has Shortwave bands, such as SW1 and SW2, Useful for Real Long Trips, Basically is the Same Stereo I installed on my BumbleBeast Subaru, but that one is Light Grey with Colour Display. (this one is Black with White Display)

Easy to use MP3 and WMA CD's ...

and the rear seat passengers' can use the Remote control.

Also, I obtained Four New Speakers...

Here you can see the Old Stereo unit and the said New Main Pulley, along the Speakers.



Those 600 Watts Huge Speakers are for the Rear install.

Prior to do the New Stereo install, I Went to one of our Local "Junk Yards" (Called here Yonkers) and obtained a Good Male / Female Plug with enough Wires for the install, that Plug Does have a Security "Lock" that Holds each part together.

I Obtained it from Behind the Dashboard of a Isuzu Car, it was designed for its Fuse Box, so it has very good Wires, including Thicker ones that I Used for Power imput.

Then, Removed all the Car's Speakers and let open the Wires for Each one.

I Cutted and Removed the Old Stereo's attached Plug, one by one Wire, Then I Used a Voltmeter / Tester to Find out which Wire Belongs to Which Speaker and its Polarity. Using the Tester on both Sides: the Dashboard end and the Speaker End to find out where belongs each one.

Then I Used the Black Marker and a Blanc Paper to Write the Results...

See the Pictures on the Followin' Posts.
