Well, over the weekend I set about fitting a set of BC Coilovers.

I specified different spring rates to what is supplied normally, and I also got some pillowball front top mounts in on the deal as I have spent a lot of money with one of the UK distributers wink

Coilovers:



Front:

(Brake lines are just zip tied in place at the moment as I have new front brakes with braided lines which will be bolted when they are fitted)





Rear:





Before:



After: (Not too low as I have to get on the drive)

Pic of the Mugen Twin loop exhaust...

2.5" all the way through, with decat. Sounds nice, and very quite during normal driving, but screams in to life when you get to the VTEC range grin

Looking good mate. Always fancied one of these.

Any major plans? Or just the usual sort the suspension, sort the breathing, sort the brakes and go from there?

I have to say mate, Im definately impressed.
Its always a quick turn around with you, Get the car, and then in almost no time at all, its pretty much finished raftl

I know theres still some way to go, but I can guarantee no-one else will get as much done in such a short time happy

Well, this is the cage it will be getting - I think i will be the first race car Ive had to get a full, multipoint weld in cage...



To fit, it needs the doors, boot, interior and all glass removing omg but it will be a proper job grin Looking to start the fitting in Feb by a friend who has fitted the same cage to his EP3 Type R and done a cracking job happy

raftl Dont forget, I get a heavy cub discount on tyres wink

They are OK in the wet, not as good as a full wet. If there is a lot of standing water then a good, new, road tyre will be better, but there does need to be standing water.
