[Refitting actual combat]Modification quick report of the fourth-generation Fit gasoline-electric version (middle)The appearance should be changed back to the Japanese standard before the modification begins!

Pursuit of the ultimate JDM specification

The inner iron of the Japanese-standard bumper needs to be replaced

Starting from the past two and three generations of Fit, many car owners have changed their appearance to Japanese-style models. In addition to pursuing the JDM style, many Japanese tuners have launched appearance kits based on Japanese-style models. Therefore, if you want to change to the appearance kits of Mugen, Modulo or other Japanese brands in the future, you need to standardize them first, so in the mouths of JDM players will say: "After the Japanese standardization, it is the beginning of modification! " statement.

Many Japanese tuners develop kits based on Japanese models. Therefore, if you want to replace the appearance kits of Mugen, Modulo and other brands in the future, you must first standardize them, and the front bumper of this car is replaced by It's the front bumper.
From this picture, it should not be difficult to find that the length of the Japanese-style front bumper on the left is indeed shorter than the length of the right-hand bench-style front bumper, and the surface of the air dam below the Japanese-style bumper is also made of piano paint with better texture.

The big difference between the Taiwan-standard Fit and the Japanese-standard Fit is the part of the front bumper. The Japanese-standard front bumper is relatively short. After replacing it, the length of the body can be reduced within 4 meters, in addition to better parking. , the visual also has a more neat feeling, but to install the Japanese short bumper, it is not as simple as changing the bumper. According to Zhuang Fuxiong, the head of the bear garage, there are still many accessories to be replaced, such as the following Guards, vertical partitions and special radiator ducts for oil and trams, etc., the largest part of which is the inner iron, which needs to be transferred to the Japanese standard parts at the same time. From the appearance, the Japanese standard inner iron is more focused on pedestrians. In terms of safety protection, the shape is completely different from that of the Taiwan-standard inner iron. Of course, if you do not want to spend the money of the daily-standard inner iron, you can also use the Taiwan-standard inner iron to modify it, but it may affect the safety of the front of the car. But for car owners who insist on regular JDM, the whole set is a matter of insistence.

To install the Japanese-standard short bumper, it is not as simple as changing the bumper. According to Zhuang Fuxiong, the owner of the bear garage, there are still many accessories to be replaced, such as the lower guard plate, vertical partition and special heat dissipation for gasoline and electric vehicles. Air ducts, etc.
The top is the Japanese internal iron, and the bottom is the Taiwan internal iron. From the appearance, the Japanese internal iron focuses more on the safety protection of pedestrians. The shape is completely different from the Taiwan internal iron. It is necessary to synchronize the replacement of the daily internal iron to be complete.
This is the appearance of the iron inside the Japanese standard. You can carefully observe that the gasoline-electric version of the Fit also has a cooler under the left headlight. When the front bumper of the Japanese standard is replaced, the air duct around the cooler is also It must be installed to ensure that the cooler has sufficient cooling effect.

As for the rear bumper at the rear of the car, the rear bumper of the Taiwan standard and the Japanese standard are the same, so there is no need to replace it. For the rear wing, the owner should replace the previous set with the shape of the original rear wing of Ximei K6 and K8. Parts, the appearance design is quite low-key, but it can improve the visual gap of the Taiwan-standard Fit without the rear wing, achieve the finishing touch, and will not destroy the overall beauty.

Open the car door, you can find that the driver's seat has been replaced with a bucket-type racing seat specially developed by Recaro for female car owners. Compared with the traditional racing seat, the difference is that the height on both sides of the thighs is relatively low, and then the shoulder width is relatively narrow. , and the seatback opening corresponding to the four-point seat belt is missing, making it easier to get on and off the car, but the hip coverage and fixation of the bucket seat are still above the level, the author thinks it is very suitable for street cars. .

On the right is the modified rear wing, and on the left is the Taiwan-standard tail without a rear wing. This group of parts is very similar to the original rear wing of Ximei K6 and K8. The design is quite low-key, but it can improve the visual gap of the Taiwan-standard Fit without a rear wing. To achieve the finishing touch of the modification effect, and will not destroy the overall beauty.
The front and rear wheels are made of Nangang NS-25 205/35R18 tires, and with Enkei GTC01 rims, the visual effect of filling the wheel arches can be obtained.

As for the gasoline-electric version of Fit, is there any value or need for power modification? According to Zhuang Fuxiong, judging from his own habit of driving this car and the timing of engine power intervention, the effect of engine power improvement seems to be small, because the power supply source of this Fit is actually mainly electric motor, engine It is mainly used to generate electricity, and then provides auxiliary power to the motor when necessary. For example, when cruising at high speed, it will be switched to engine power, because the engine is the most efficient at this time, and the high torque will be used to start or climb a hill by stepping on the accelerator. Motor-driven, this way of operation is completely different from Toyota's gasoline-electric system, and it is also quite different from Honda's early CR-Z, so Fit should be called "electric vehicle" more appropriately, and because of this, he believes that even if the engine is upgraded In the intake and exhaust system, the lifting effect may not be felt.

The Recaro bucket racing seat for the driver's seat is specially developed for female car owners. The height on both sides of the thighs is relatively low, and the shoulder width is relatively narrow, but the buttocks coverage and fixity of the bucket seat are still maintained. Above the standard, I think it is very suitable for street cars.
The power output of the petrol-electric version of the Fit is mainly based on the electric motor, supplemented by the fuel engine. When most of the power output is required, the electric motor is responsible for the output, and the engine is solely responsible for the power output when cruising at high speed. Therefore, the traditional intake and exhaust modification may not have much effect on improving the power.
With the gradual introduction of aerodynamic kits, it is believed that the modified fourth-generation Fit should be able to change its cute appearance into a sporty hatchback.
