Hi there! Check out the new Suzuki every! Its like the Suzuki APV being sold here in the Philippines but smaller. It has a automatic side door lock and of course the 3 cyclinder 660cc turbo.

Normally, there are 1 to 2 people driving in a car in the roads of Manila. With these vehicle or any K-class vehicles you are not occupying acres of road with a mostly empty vehicle which is can be a problem with the really big gas guzzling MPV's.

Here's the site:

Also found some reviews of the Daihatsu hi-jet review on the net and pictures of the daihatsu atrai 2006.:)

Hey Pascalhatesworm,

I'll be checking on my van this coming Friday. Already have my engine replace with an F6. There were some modification done like:

a. My original drive shaft is short so have to extend it
b. My F5 transmission do not fit to the F6 so I have to use the original F6 transmission which is only 4 speed.
c. Had my contact point change to a manual rather electronic so it is easy to maintain and troubleshoot.
d. Change my air-filter to a racing type

I just hope that their are no more additional expense or unforseen mechanical brakedown. Cross my finger.

I still wish I got a 5 speed transmission. I'll still be on the look for an F6 5 speed transmission. By the way, F6 or F5 engine are not that well known here even to the shop who are selling it. It might be a plus for us so the price for the parts wont go up.:)

My mechanic in San Mateo did the job. The Airconditioning to follow medyo low budget pa. The engine is a surplus as there are no brand new. We went to at least 7 engine and tested them before we bought it. I'll be selling my F5 engine so I'll have a starting budget for the Aircon. Nanghihinayang nga mekaniko sa F5 kasi maganda pa talaga sya and Japan made.

I see... i suggest you post it here sa mga forums dito kahit sa ibang sub-forums na u are selling your F5 in good condition. baka may interesado.

my 2 cents.:cool:

I was fortunate na madiskarte yung mekaniko. He just bought a air filter in a accessory shop and fabricated the rest of the materials to fit.

Here is a picture of the airfilter attach to a carry van.

I still use my stock muffler so I am not sure how much it cost if you will have to change your noisy muffler to an ordinary one. My airfilter plus labor and materials para dun sa pipe cost me mga P1600(OUCH! )
1. Airfilter- P700
2. Labor, materials and fabrication - P900
But that's because my mechanic did everything from buying the materials, machine shop and of course installing it.

But if you have the luxury of time and you know a little about fabrication (para makamura) I saw sa SM San Lazaro sa BLADE near the supermarket and they sell their airfilters at around P500 and just buy a pipe and go to a machine shop to have the pipe fabricated that will fit your airfilter and the connection to the carburator. And just go to any auto supply shop for the clamp.

But to be sure any auto shop that you trust can do the work. Just have the picture I send sa forum printed so they'll an idea of what you want to do.

Hope this helps.
