    If your gonna respray mate might aswell do it proper and have a good look around for a sick colour what no ones used before. Fiat 500 have some nice colours

    been a while since i posted anything, coulor scheme hasnt changed yet sadly :Frown: . but I've decided to keep it red

    but i have got an induction kit and cat back exhaust system on, not doing much else performance wise till i can get insured on a b series, no point on a d14 although might get a d16z6 intake manifold.

    just need to get the paint sorted got EK9 lips etc just need to slam it and i have been hunting around for my perfect choice of alloys, what do you think?

    keep it original mate, so when shit happens again its esier to get the parts rather than mixed colour or non OEM one..

    hows the induction and exhaust system goin? are they really improve the throttle response ? mine slow as fuck, hate it really..

    and for the wheels, get the slipstreams but you will be like others here :Grin:

    well induction is awsome , havent actually put the exhaust on yet, waiting for my workshop ramp to be clear lol. but i gota say no car I've heard with just an induction kit on it sounds as good as a Civic lol and perfomance wise geting a long arm induction was a wise choice in the mornings when its cold you can feel it.the response is good. have you got an induction kit?
  16. d_p Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    no but im looking for one... which one better short or long induction? i heard short is better, not so sure though.

    i got 4-2-1 mani but not yet fitted, still confused with decision
  17. Jordanjdm Club Member ★ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    i don't know which would be better, would of thought long arm would be better as its nearer the front of the car so more cold air gets in.

    Short Arm is cheaper than the CAI (Cold Air Induction) and also more better for sounds if your into that sorta thing.CAI would be better for performance although you'd be lucky to get anything out of a EJ9. Do what I did and just replace the OEM filter with a Pipercross one and thats it :Smile:

    Im thinking of going B16 next year or maybe B18 with LSD gearbox
