    Hi,

    I've been a member for a while but never introduced myself. I've been speaking to a few members via FB and have been very friendly and very knowledgeable.

    I've always loved my Hondas first being a tire blooded Type-R EK9 in Phoenix yellow but moved to other JDM cars. Now I became a father I needed a bigger car for baby seat and pram so went on the hunt for a family car. I did contemplate moving over to the Germans but didn't tickle my fancy and then ran into a Euro R CL7. I fell in love and brought her.

    I loved it but I did feel like I had slowed down a tad too much, my previous car was an EVO 6 TME running 500bhp. So the modding began, here she is as it is now.

    I speak to a lot of forum members on FB and Ralph told me the forum had problems on tapatalk but some have been resolved so here I am. I've not done anything else to car tho apart from buying a set of 3000k d2s which I'm still awaiting for from Hong Kong.

    Tdi did a final map running 390bhp @ 6psi

    I did have issue when it kept hitting boost cut so we turned it back down so I think approx 350bhp realistically.

    Lovely looking car - add her to the club garage where you can put all her mods down etc. Look forward to hearing more about her.

    Good to see you on the site mate, no doubting she's a beauty. I and the collie were both impressed with the power she was putting down too! :Laughing:

    Btw, those bits I've got to get across to you. It may be after Christmas, as I'm not back in Liverpool now until the 23rd.

    No worries. Yeah finally getting around to adding my car into this forum. Just noticed there is tapatalk 2 available, wonder if that is better at viewing the forums. Just added my car into the garage, think I done it right, so much harder doing on my iPhone.

    Do you know what back boxes were used in your custom exhaust setup ?

    I don't know what type of back boxes were used. TDI North had their exhaust guys make it up and they did a super job, half way from the cat back it's moved slightly higher so doesn't scrap at all compared to my standard one.

    Oh forgot to mention because mine is turbo it sounds completely different to NA setup. Paul @ TDI has CL7 k24 running same exhaust and his one sounds loud and boomy but not as bad as the skunk 2 megapower one tho.

    I will try and get a video of my exhaust on a cold start up. I love the noise it makes!

    Hello:Bye:and:welcome:to the club
    Think I've seen a number of photos of your motor a few times before do you use TDI north?

    Yeah I used TDI north. I have recommended a few ppl there as they are good at their job and won't have you on a long one. Their also very helpful but mainly over email, if you call tends to go to voicemail but that's probably due to being super busy. I've had mine turbo'd almost 6 months now and only had some minor issues at start but starts and drives everyday. Extremely happy.

    Nice. Standard it is a real Q car, but your mods are subtle and in keeping with Type-R so look good. Guessing goes pretty well too :Smile:

    I wanted to do time attack in my evo a few years back but couldn't find the time. Run my own restaurant at that time. No social life.

    There's going to be big changes next year so that normal street cars can enter as far as I'm aware, I haven't checked the website for a while I've tried to get some guys from here to one for a club meet but its difficult so I just head off with my daughter,she does a lot of photography for the on line time attack magazine.
