have already started to modify it, apart from it already having a kakimoto exhaust and blitz air filters. it came with a bigger intercooler but i am going to get and apexi power fc for it before i put it on. i have changed the horrible yellowy indicators to black ones. and i've got a few bits on order for it. will get some better pictures up some time in the future

no, no other engine size, they are top engines, but fragile due to size/power, my dad was a mechanic and said they had to be rebuilt every 30,000 miles to keep them on top form...
