Mod ideas?

13 posts in this topic

I just recently got a 2017 spark and was wondering about any good mods I can add to the car. Any suggestions?

After 600mi change the oil to synthetic. This gets rid of factory & break-in crap in the oil. That's a really good 'mod' for the long term of your engine and gas mileage. Keep tires at 37psi for good handling and gas mileage. Go to walmart and buy the cheap green tire shine spray and after doing the tires spray and wipe down the engine when cool..keeps it a shiny silver color..try to avoid hoses so they don't collect dust.

I'm doing a one off  customization and replacing all the badging to that of the right hand drive cousin, the Holden Spark.

Have any of you guys done and exhaust change? I was thinking on doing a magnaflow muffler for a bit of sound change after the windows get tinted

On my 4 cyl engines . If I do want a louder sound but dont want to spend alot of money . I will have the shop put on a cherrybomb /glasspack  and try it . They are

actually very mellow and nice sounding with minimal drone in a small 4 cyl. I havent changed anything on the spark yet . I do want dual center exhaust tip. Im just waiting on the new to wear off .

It needs a SS badge and a RS badge so the turbo badge won't be lonely and it adds horsepowah, maybe some red racing stripes to show it is really american and yellow fogs to represent the Korean roots,

37psi:kookie:. Is it recommended by Chevy? In India its 32psi that too have mentioned as higher compared to other cars by enthusiasts, for better mileage.

Mods which I like to do are,majorly on lighting end, fog lamps if you're not having. Rear bench reading lamp, boot/trunk light, door puddle lamp with red small light for rear traffic, good DRL (continuous type instead of pearl one).

Ofcourse music experience too, but since I didn't drive much, its 2nd priority.

Upsize tyre, blackening some part like B&C pillar.

I am not good on mechanical.

 

P.S. assuming US spark too have common door azar indication, if you want to control individual door puddle lamp, I worked out a simple solution.
