Hello and welcome to the forum.
We are really happy to have you as a new member and we all want to share our
experience, knowledge and resources with you to make your Daewoo owning and driving experience a pleasure.

PLEASE read through the forum posts before asking questions.
This will answer most, if not all your questions before you even need to ask.
We are happy to help in any way we can, and if you have pictures of any custom work you are doing, please post them. :)

There is a search function to find the most commonly asked questions.
We have been getting many new members asking the same questions repeatedly within a few posts of each other.

The members of this forum are all over the world.
For this reason, please try, to the best of your ability, to write in complete sentences, use proper grammar, spelling and punctuation.
This helps our members who do not speak, read or write English fluently, when they need the assistance of an on line language translation page.
The more clearly you write, the more clearly everyone can understand you and thus be able to help with any problems you may have.

Cheap 15+ HP gain from ebay
Do not buy this! The seller will mail you a cheap resistor taped to a piece of cardboard.
It can foul your oxygen sensor, clog the catalytic convertor (which will make the Check Engine light come on) and possibly damage you car's computer.

also when you regester please state details about your car in the "Drives" field in the form of: manufacturing year, type, shape and engine in this case i will be riding a '99 Lanos sedan with a 1.5 SOHC.

this will help us know what exactly you are driving and what ideas/advice/refrences should be given to you... needless to say that adding where you are on the gloab makes it even easyer for us to do so.
