Yeah sorry does need a very good clean but was very happy with results i could not wait to show you all.

only got it tuned yesturday so not driven it much but it does pick up very well off the line and gives a nice noise above 3000rpm

Dont want to go over top with style was thinking wheels and maybe hella smoked rear lights i like the standard ish look to and surprise all those civic's in my area.

Have you upgraded the braking system accordingly to cope with the extra 100 horses?

If your not interested in changing/lowering the suspension, R32 arb's would at least stiffen the chassis a little.

Aero wipers front & rear would be a cheap(ish) mod and a good improvement.

Beautiful car mate, if i was you i'd just upgrade the brakes and keep
the car in standard form and stiffen up the suspension a bit, so when
you race someone they'll be shocked. lol

No brakes are still standard guess i should look into changing them sooner rather then too late and crash.

I have been looking into the R32 arb but pricey getting garage to do it. do you know if its hard to do yourself? Or best to spend the extra.

Well i toke the risk and got it secondhand of ebay for ?1300 for hole kit and extra pipes for mk3 cars.

There was few small bits missing which delayed the fitting time having to hunt around for replacments but it was quite easy to just need to know a little about cars as there a few bits missing out of the instuctions. Toke me 4 days but they where only short days. Hardest part was doing one of the bolts up as there is no room to get hand in and move spanner around. but very happy with it even got reciepts for it all to show me what i good deal i got [:D]

That ll be off of penfold on here, I nearly bought it for 1100 of him,
in fact he gave me second chance on that very auction, I couldnt go
that high as I was getting married DOH, as fas the r32 bars go speak to
shaq hell get for around 120, and yea you can fit them yourself, as I
did along with ,y Konigsports, you will need to drop the front
subfarame ETC but if you are capable of doing the sc kit I am sure you
can dod the bars.

PS if you want to ever sell the kit can I have 1st option LOL

Cheers A
