Preview: Knight Sports 4.777 Final Drive for 4AT

GFOO’s Review
The car feels livelier, and super responsive to the slightest touch of the pedal. Linear acceleration across all gears (1-4) is definitely improved. Honestly, now, a light touch of the pedal brings me to the speed i want. previously, i had to be more aggressive.

  • For sure low-end acceleration has improved by quite a bit. Previously, car seemed to be straining a bit gears at 1-2, but now, it seems rearing to go and i haven’t even whacked it yet. the combi of RE Amemiya ecu and the final drive is great
  • Prev when you let go of the pedal, the rev drops a bit. now, there is no rev drop when pedal is released, it’s maintained at the rev you left it at. I’m not quite sure how this affects performance as i’ve not driven/whacked enough to gauge yet but i do think that this will help pickup somewhat

All in all, from a cursory standpoint, the 4.777 seems to deliver what it said it would and more. Although it’s been said that this is not a performance mod that increases HP, in my books anything that improves my low-end performance is a good thing. Like Coupe07 says, singapore or even ns highway how often you’ll exceed 200kmh?

TAN280’s Review
Installation process : Is a pretty one day job [cause working so take at night lor] and the initial response who have tested can gladly said that the pull was marvellous esp when U rev high…

Just a quick roundup for those who are going to fix this or having this thought to fix on your ride soon. This is not a performance mod for HP but more towards your revving response. First of all, the gain is noticeable from 2K and is throughout all gears. Very linear and fast pickup right from the beginning and the fun part is when using our “F1” style paddle shifters cause it simply change almost instantly [not much of a gear lag], gear ratio also improved but the best part is that the fuel consumption is pretty much the same and the engine runs a whole lot smoother esp the low end part [maybe because of RE remap system]. Highly recommended for those who love quick response.

Overall impressions :

Overall this will lower approximately 1/4 to 1/3 of a second [est only], for those who love to drag or self-timing, this will be a good mod.

For more information, kindly PM me your doubts [I will try to answer as far as my knowledge goes] or simply go to Monster Garage to find out more. I will post a second review when this thing totally run in, so stay sharp.

HP gain : N/A
Torque gain : Not very sure buy surely will add some ba
Revving response : 4.5/5 [ using full automatic], 5/5 [using our F1 paddle shifters ]
Fuel Consumption : almost the same [ between 7.5 to 8 per litre (ballpark figure) ]
Looks : Well, is hidden so cant see from outside.
Installation : 4.5/5
Addiction : song song gao Jurong ar!!! mai tu liao… grabs yours and enjoy the adrenaline rush!!! Fast and Furious!!!
